SX85Nll Stable and Coachhouse
6/4 Range Immediately West
Stable and coach house range; partly converted into a dwelling. Circa late
C18 and early C19 with later C19 and C20 alterations. Local slate rubble.
Slate and scantle slate gable - ended and hipped roofs, some replaced by later
Plan: Roughly square on plan, built around 4 sides of a courtyard, with
stables on 3 sides and coachhouses on the fourth north side flanking the
central carriageway. Either side of the carriageway is a small tack room.
Probably built in phases starting from about 1770 when Sharphan House ((qv))
was begun. The east range has been converted into a dwelling in C20 and the
south range is now dairies.
Exterior: 1 storey and lofts. At the centre of the north elevation a
limestone ashlar elliptical arch carriageway with alternating large and small
voussiors and tooled pilasters with fluted capitals with small roundels and
with plank double doors. Inside the carriageway stand partition side walls
with brick nogging and flush - panel doors to tack rooms.
Inside the courtyard the elevations have central elliptical arches to the
stables and 16-panel sashes, most of which are original. To left and right
of carriageway 2 pairs of plank double doors to coach houses, the left hand
replaced by corrugated asbestos sheets.
Interior: Circa late C19 soft-wood king-post roof structure and none of the
stable stalls survive.
It is doubtful whether Sir Robert Taylor, the architect of Sharpham House
((qv)), personally had a hand in designed the stables.
