SS 91 NW STOODLEIGH

9/161 Garden house and boundary walls
- of the courtyard to the north east
of Ravenswood School
GV II*


Garden house and boundary walls to courtyard to Ravenswood School, formerly
Stoodleigh Court. 1883 by Sir Ernest George and H E Peto, the architects of
Stoodleigh Court. Stone rubble with Ham Hill dressings; original covering to ogival
roof of garden house replaced or re-covered with asphalted material. Garden house
designed as corner pavillion to the courtyard in front of the entrance (north)
elevation of Stoodleigh Court and possibly loosely modelled on the early C17
forecourt pavilions at Montacute House in Somerset.
Exterior: 2 storey garden house, square on plan, with an ogival roof crowned with a
weathercock. The ground floor has open arches on 2 sides forming a shelter; a flight
of Ham Hill stone steps within the courtyard leads to a segmental arched stone
doorway to the first floor which has round-headed windows with keystones and external
wooden shutters. A steeply-coped stone wall adjoining the building forms the north
east side of the courtyard in front of the house; a second wall forming the north-
east boundary of the courtyard has coped gatepiers.
Important to the setting of Stoodleigh Court.
