Ferney Hall including stables and attached wall and steps to east



Country house, derelict at time of survey. 1856. By John Norton for W H Sitwell. Red brick with stone dressings and slate roofs with ornamental brick ridge, end and side stacks with decorated flues, some in clusters. Jacobean style with stone mullion windows and Dutch gables.

EXTERIOR: Two storeys and attic. Entrance front has three-storey tower with doorway enriched with Doric pilasters and frieze, two-light window above, bracketed cornice, and open belvedere with parapet and ogee roof, further windows to either side. Garden front is a five-window range with projecting end gables and two-storey canted bays; central doorway with oriel over. Side is an asymmetrical design with projecting gable, side stacks and oriels to first floor.

Attached to the entrance front by a covered way are the stables of one and two storeys in similar style. U-plan with central carriage arch and clock tower above, with open square lantern and ogee roof, echoing the house belvedere.

INTERIOR: not inspected.

SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: extending from the right corner of the garden front is a brick and stone wall with elaborate niches near the house, then steps and gateway. The wall then extends eastward bounding the drive, and becoming constructed of coursed rubble about halfway along its length.

The park was landscaped by Humphry Repton.
