Listing Text


Lodge and former stable backing onto the road, c.1840 with C20 additions.

Reason for Listing

The lodge to Apthorpe House is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural interest: it is a handsome mid-C19 former lodge and stable block with an interesting Classical finish which is in keeping with the design of Apthorpe House
* Group value: it has group value with the Apthorpe House and other listed buildings on Weston Road


A relatively rare example of a Classically detailed coach house, complementing its similarly treated parent building, and thus forming an ensemble of a well-to-do suburban residence. It was converted to residential use in 1992.


PLAN: Rectangular plan.

MATERIALS: Limestone ashlar, roof unseen.

EXTERIOR: A two-storey, two-window range. It is encircled by a coped parapet, cornice, cornice band and a platband at the ground floor. There is a former carriage entrance to the west facade which now has garage doors. The windows and door to south front are C20.

INTERIOR: Not inspected.
