Statement of Interest

In A-Group with Tertowie House, Walled Garden and Nuclear Bunker. The above structures form three sides of a small courtyard situated to the east of Tertowie House and immediately north of the Walled Garden. They comprise a good example of estate ancillary, en suite with the main subject and functionally modest in detail. A pair of modern semi-detached cottages known as 'Redroofs' is situated immediately North of the boundary wall. Cottage dwellings and stabling would have constituted an important element in the running of this small estate with its fine designed landscape and surrounding acres. The early harled ranges (with few openings to the rear elevations) are well screened by an imposing wall of beech trees.
