6/187 Coach house and stables to the
- north west of Sydenham House


Coachhouse and stables. Circa mid C17 origins, early C18 alterations, late C20
renovations. Local stone rubble with scantle slate roof gabled at ends and gabled to
the front in the centre. Stables with flanking coachhouses and originally with
accommodation above the stables. 2 storeys. Long symmetrical 15-bay front gabled to
the front above the central 4 bays and crowned by a clock turret and bell cupola, the
cupola a C20 copy of the original. 2 large round-headed coach entrances to left and
right have slate voussoirs with keystones and double timber doors which may
originally have had glazed fanlights. 3 stable entrances with early C18 moulded
doorcases with moulded cornices carried on moulded consoles, some repair to
doorcases. The panelled doors are probably C19 replacements. The ground floor
windows are all 2-light casements with square leaded panes under segmental arches
with slate voussoirs and keystones. 6 blocked rectangular openings to the first
floor. A 2-light casement positioned centrally in the gable has square-leaded panes
below a fanlight with spoke leading. The rectangular clock turret is slate-hung with
a diamond-shaped clock face, some of the workings said to be mid C17 in a frame with
brass finials. The bell cupola has a moulded cornice and copper dome with
weathervane, bell workings said to be partly early C17. 1 C20 gabled dormer and 3
skylights have been added to the stable block and a C20 projecting glazed window and
balcony at the rear.
Interior Some of the C18 loose boxes survive with curved partitions with
square-section newels crowned by bulhous finials. 1 full-height panelled partition
has a pilaster newel with a fine acorn finial. Parts of the C18 timber cornice, the
timber mangers and a herringbone stone floor are also intact.
