3/62 Water tower, stables, coach house
- and cottages approximately 4 metres
north-east of Outer Down

Water tower, stables, coach house and 2 cottages. Dated 1911. Snecked granite with
some granite stone rubble to rear; granite stacks with ashlar chimney shafts; slate
Plan: the buildings enclose 3 sides of a courtyard. The front block faces outwards,
to the south. It comprises a water tower and cottage connected by an arch over a
carriageway into the courtyard. The coach house and cottage makes up the east wing
and on the north side are the stables. Both these wings face into the courtyard.
The cottages originally were occupied by groom and coachman. Both cottages have 2-
room plans but the front one is larger and both its rooms are heated. Both cottages
are 2 storeys.
Exterior: the water tower is tall. The front contains a 2-light granite-mullioned
window with a slit window above and below. It has a coved eaves cornice and the
pyramid roof has sprocketted eaves. It is surmounted by a brass weather vane dated
1911. Alongside to left is an external stair with a granite parapet rising over a
small archway. To right is the large round-headed carriageway arch containing its
original double doors. Further right the cottage has a regular but not symmetrical
2-window front of granite-mullioned windows and central plank door behind a probably
secondary porch. Its roof is hipped each end.
Inside the courtyard the coach house has 2 large sliding doors and the space in front
is sheltered by a glass roof on cast iron posts. The cottage to left has a 5-window
front, one of them blocking the original doorway. The stable door has side lights
and to left is another door to the stallion box. Most of the original features are
retained and the stables, for instance, has the original stall furniture.
