Coachhouse adjoining south west
of Gatehouse at Colleton Manor
- II*

Coachhouse range, original building type not known. C17, converted in circa
late C19. Coursed and dressed local sedimentary stone. Slate roof with stone
coped gable ends with ball and cap finials.
Plan and Development: Rectangular plan. The original internal arrangement and
function not known except that it must have been 2 storeys or in part 2 storeys
since the front (east) left hand window was originally a doorway. The left hand
(south) gable end wall was rebuilt in the late C19 or early C20 (the building
might have been truncated at this end) and a large 2-bay coach house was created
at this end with doorways in the gable end and a loft above. To the right of
centre another coach house was inserted but with a doorway on the east front.
The right hand (north) end has an original small doorway at the front and is now
open to the roof.
Exterior: Asymmetical east front with a chamfered plinth. To the left at high
level a (C17 cyma-moulded wooded window with bar stops and above the bar a
carved flower; this was probably a loft doorway originally. To the right of
centre a carriage house doorway with a brick segmental arch and C19 plank double
doors. At the right hand end of the east front a doorway with an ovolo -
moulded wooden lintel and a late C19 plank door.
The left hand (south) gable has 2 large round-arch brick doorways and a large
round pitching eye above; the end wall was rebuilt in the late C19 or early C20
and has battered buttresses at the corners. The rear (west) wall is blind, at
the centre there is a buttress with weathered set-offs. The left (northwest)
end projects slightly, and the whole of the rear wall is now enclosed within a
large green house.
Interior: There are later partition walls and floor. C17 8-bay roof; 6 of the
7 oak scissor-braced trusses survive. The scissor braces are halved, lapped and
pegged to the principals and mortice and tenoned at the apexes; all the joints
have long pegs. The feet of the principals tenoned into mortices in the timber
wall plate, the purlins are trenched into the backs of the principals. A C17
roof of this type is most unusual in Devon.
