3/28 Kitchen garden walls, gardener's
cottage and offices and tool shed
about 100 metres south west of
Antony House


Kitchen garden walls, gardener's cottage and offices and tool shed. Early-mid C18
walls, with tool shed probably of early C18 phase, with later C19 gardener's cottage
and offices; with later alterations of C19 and C20. Walls in brick and banded
rubble, tool shed in banded rubble with slate roof, gardener's cottage and offices in
random rubble, partly rendered, with slate roofs.
The walls enclose a roughly rectangular area of about one acre; to the north east
there is an L-plan range of cottage and offices, with the tool shed to the north.
The kitchen garden walls are in Flemish bond, about 5 metres high with slate copings;
along the north west range they extend about 60 metres with a central segmental-
headed doorway. The southeast range has a tall segmental arch with limestone
keystone and pilaster to each side, C20 double wooden gates, this range about 70
metres long. The wall is stepped back and continued about a further 20 metres to
north east, with a segmental-headed doorway. The north east side adjoins the rear of
the L-plan range, and at the rear of the buildings is in brick, with a section of
banded rubble, possibly of an earlier phase of building.
The L-plan range encloses a yard; the buildings are single storey, the range to south
east with 3 C20 windows and door. The south west range has three 2-light casements
and door, each with gable over, single light to side and door to end right. Brick
dressings and crested ridge tiles to slate roofs. The rear of the south west range
has 3 C20 French windows with fanlights with 3-light casement to each side and door
to end right. The tool shed is of 1½ storeys, with bracketed eaves. There are 2
round-arched brick openings to front with double doors and 2-light casement to right.
Right side has 2-light casement in gable end. Left side has loading door in gable
end. Attached to right is a section of brick wall about 3 metres long and about 3
metres high, with a round-arched gateway; this wall is continued for about 10 metres
in banded rubble as a screen wall. The rear of the tool shed has granite quoins.
