Stables and coach house, now store, workshop and accomodation. 1826-7, by H. Hakewill for J.
Gist. Limestone ashlar, darker to plinth; Sussex bond brickwork to rear of wings, with stone
dressings; Welsh slate roof with wide projecting eaves. U-plan around 3 sides of courtyard, with
projection to rear of central block housing harness room and accomodation. Picturesque Classical
style. One storey with attic, with lower wings flanking courtyard and 2 storey central block. Central
elevation of 1:3:1-fenestration with moulded architraves to semi-circular tripartite windows flanking
pedimented central block; latter has flat-arched throughway with impost bands continued as flanking
upper plat band, first floor 3/6-pane sash flanked by 15-pane blind windows with flanking pilasters
which rise to meet band beneath pediment, which is surmounted by square timber turret (housing
clock) with blind circular dials to each face and pyramidal lead roof with weathervane. Outer wings
flanking courtyard each have vents set beneath 2 similar semi-circular arched windows flanking stable
door with overlight set in moulded architrave and 2 sets of double doors.
Interior: loose boxes, boarded divisions with iron bars over and cast-iron hay racks survive in
left-hand half of stables; complete rear tack room with harness pegs and simple stone fireplace with
glazed cupboard over; to right of through-entry is accomodation for stable hands, with
match-boarded panelling, stick-baluster stair and simple classical fireplace; fireplaces to first floor.
The principal interest of the interior lies within its method of early fire-proof construction, with
cast-iron columns to iron beams spanned by brick jack arches with stone slate floor over to attic;
arched brick diaphragm walls flank central bay; softwood queen-post roof with wrought-iron ties.
A fine composition, of significant constructional interest, which complements the house (qv) which
Hakewill also remodelled for Gist.
