of a service lane at the rear of the garden and providing a backcloth to the
lawns. Chapel-like bothy with central polygonal apse. Four centred stucco
windows with crow-stepped gable over centre. Scalloped slate roofs. Higher
crow-stepped gable to rear, the steps merging into battlements over round
arched flanking gateways. Left hand one links coach house which has 4 centred
entrance arch, the window over with dripmould, and finialed gable with ornate
identical appearance to coach house but with 4 centred windows in place of
entrance; dovecote in gable, same bargeboards. Extending north from the coach
house side wall is an imposing "Tudor" garden wall with 9 bays of blind segmental
arches on flat piers; the wall returns to rear of house.
