Stable block, partly converted to cafe and visitors' centre at Ugbrooke Park. 1793
by Joseph Rowe. Local grey limestone rubble with brick dressings; tiled roofs, hipped
at ends; axial stack and left end stack to accommodation range which has a slate
4 ranges round a central courtyard with an entrance in the centre of the north west
range opposite the south east accommodation range with stabling and coach-houses in
the north east and south west ranges. The conversion to a cafe and visitors' centre
has not affected the exterior of the buildings.
The north west range has a 7 bay symmetrical north west elevation with a slightly
projecting gabled porch with an elliptical brick arch springing from imposts and
plain pilasters. On either side of the central archway 3 blind round-headed recesses
with brick arches.
The interior of the courtyard is particularly attractive. The front elevation of the
2-storey accommodation block is symmetrical and 5 bay with a platband at first floor
level and the central bay slightly broken forward. Central front door with
rectangular fanlight in a blind segmental-headed recess springing from pilasters,
further doorways to left and right with round-headed fanlights, round-headed sash
windows in the outer bays with margin glazing. 5 first floor 3 over 6 pane sashes.
The 5-bay courtyard elevation of the south west range has 3 large elliptical-headed
coach house doorways in the centre with brick arches and keystones springing from
plain imposts and pilasters; the double doors have good hinges, slightly recessed
outer bays have a round-headed doorway in the left bay and a similar blocked doorway
replaced by a window in the right hand bay. The courtyard elevation of the north
east elevation is similar but the coach doorways are blocked with 2 smaller doors and
a window inserted in the recesses. The courtyard elevation of the north west range
has 6 round-headed sash windows inserted in blocked doorways.
Interior not inspected.
James Paine produced an unexecuted design for a grand Doric mews at Ugbrooke, the
choice of Joseph Rowe's more modest design is entirely in keeping with the character
of the subsidiary buildings at Ugbrooke Park. Rowe worked on a number of parson
houses in Devon, including Kentisbury, Cornworthy and Shillingford St George.
