9/119 Coach-house about
20 yards north of
Coach-house, now offices. Early C18 with c1900 alterations probably by
Richard Norman Shaw. Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings and
hipped Welsh slate roof with swept eaves. Single storey and attic with
dormers, moulded plinth and eaves cornice. 2:1:2 bays with large pilasters
between outer bays; the central bay breaks forward and is gabled. Outer
bays have windows with dropped keyblocks and tall cross-casements with
leaded lights. Above each pair of bays is a hipped-roofed dormer of c1900
with a 3-light leaded casement. The central bay has an attic window with
a dropped keyblock and a cross-casement; beneath it is the main entrance
which has a rusticated surround, a stepped and rusticated lintel with a
dropped keyblock, double panelled doors and a plain transom light. At the
centre of the roof ridge is a clock tower with a moulded cornice and a
large square panel to each side with an egg and dart moulded surround; the
east panel contains a clock face. The clock tower is surmounted by an
octagonal lantern with round-arched arcaded sides and a domical lead roof
with a ball finial and weathervane. The south side of the coach house facing
Overbury Court (qv) is also of 2:1:2 bays with cross-casements and dormers
but the bays are narrower and there are no pilasters. The central bay has a
blind attic window and the door is reached by two flights of four steps with
ornate cast iron railings. (BoE, p 233).
