Listing Text

"The Stables,"
Polla House
(formerly listed as
Hothfield Place,
Farm Buildings)
TQ 94 SE 15/3 14.2.67
These former farm buildings are the only remaining buildings from Hothfield
Place, a house rebuilt in 1778-80 by James Wyatt for Sackville Tufton, Eighth
Earl of Thanet, but demolished in 1954. These buildings are probably also
by James Wyatt. "The Stables" is a modern name which does not refer to their
original functions, the former stables having been demolished. Late C18.
At the west end is an L-shaped building now used as stables. One storey red
brick. Modillion eaves cornice. Hipped tiled roof. Six round-headed doorways
with semi-circular fanlights. Next to this is an octagonal brick dovecote,
now used as a feed box, with a lantern at the apex of the roof. Further east
are 2 small rectangular brick buildings now used as stables, each with 2
round-headed doorways and one round-headed window.
