4/2 Stable Block south west
of the House
Stables and coachhouse, now garage and stores. Early and mid C19. Brick and
slate. Plain buildings on 3 sides of a courtyard, with a more ornamental
treatment of the (outer) east elevation, seen with the west range of the house.
A central tower with cupola, above a carriage archway, flanked by wings of 3
bays; this general form can be discerned in a perspective sketch of the
original scheme by Joseph Parkinson, but the tower was raised in the late C19,
apparently re-using the cupola. East elevation: symmetrical. The tall tower
has an octagonal arcaded cupola with an ogee cap, and a crenellated and
machicolated parapet,walls of Flemish bond with blue headers, a band (original
parapet base?) above 2 small windows with hood moulds (now filled), and a
carriage arch of Tudor form, with hood mould and deep splay. Low pitched
hipped roof, continuing at a lower level above the other 2 ranges, one with
malmstone walls (of the original building?). On each side there are small
lancets within deep splays, separated by slender stepped buttresses. Interior:
the stalls remain, the large central arch being open to the courtyard but filled
at the outer face. The building marks the south end of a group of towers, which
dominate the unusual skyline of Rotherfield Park, as seen from the east.
