4/239 The Coach House and
Pinecroft about 40 yards
north-west of
- Westwood House


Coach house, now two houses. Late C19, possibly by Sir Reginald Blomfield
with mid-C20 alterations. Brick with ashlar dressings, plain tiled roofs;
Jacobean (Flemish inspired) style; E-shaped plan facing south formed by
central tall range with main entrance in south gable end and flanking wings
from which run three-bay south ranges; single storey and attic with dormers;
central range of two storeys; chamfered plinth, moulded brick eaves cornice
and blue brick diaper patterns at south gable ends. South front elevation:
central entrance gable end has a chamfered Tudor archway leading into an
inserted C20 lobby; above is a 3-light mullioned window with transom and,
in the apex, a blind oculus with clockface; gable is ornately shaped and
on kneelers with cut finial; beneath the eaves each side is a row of
decorative corbels and on the roof ridge there is a square lantern with
octagonal ogee cupola. The flanking wings each have a mullion and transom
window, and in the angle betwen the central projecting gable end are
diagonally-set extensions with hipped roofs behind parapets. From the
outer end of the wings the three-bay ranges project southwards; both south
gable ends have attic lights and parapets with kneelers and cut finials;
their inward-facing elevations were open-fronted, certainly on left side,
and originally had archways on brick piers; the three on the left are
blocked and two double doors and a central 3-light casement have been
inserted; above are three gabled dormers with 2-light casements; the outer
two bays on the right side are now glazed and boarded but the north end
bay has a mullion and transom window and a doorway with sandstone quoins
and lintel; above is a flat-roofed tile-hung dormer. The side and rear
elevations have been altered but some blind oriels, possibly former mangers,
are retained at rear. Included partly for group value.
