Mid 19th century. 2-storey, U-plan, neoclassical former stable and coach house block (now converted to flats) with central high segmental-arched, pedimented pend entrance, and single storey gabled former loose box, cheese house and scullery block to 4th side of court attached by coped screen walls.

Base course; eaves course. Regular fenestration with raised ashlar margins.

Roughly 4-bay W elevation. Irregular fenestration to courtyard elevations; 2 segmental-arched former coach house to right of pend now glazed; 20th century timber porch supported on timber columns in NW corner. Timber-boarded sliding doors to single-storey S block.
Predominantly timber sash and case windows with 8-pane glazing to ground floor and 4-pane glazing to first floor. Ashlar-coped skews. Predominantly coped sandstone ashlar stacks with string course and buff clay cans. Grey slate roof.
A particularly handsome mid 19th century stable and coach house block with substantially unaltered exterior. The building may have been designed by the extremely prominent firm of Burn & Bryce; William Burn, the senior partner, altered and extended Carnell House (then known as Cairnhill; listed separately) in 1843 in Scottish vernacular style but using the same red sandstone as is used for the pend and pilasters of this block. He entered into partnership with his longstanding assistant David Bryce in the following year. The long, low, heavy proportions of the stable block echo those of Burn's John Watson School (now Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art) and Edinburgh Academy, but the detailing of the archway is more characteristic of Bryce.
This block is situated adjacent to Carnell Home Farm.
