SU 71 SE
6/294A The former stables and
former service wing of
5.6.58 Stansted House

- II

The stables were built by James Wyatt in 1786 and were rebuilt by Thomas
Hopper in 1840. They survived the fire of 1900. Two storeys. 7 windows.
White brick. The end window bays project and have long and short quoins
of Roman cement. Stringcourse, cornice and parapet with a pediment over
the central window bay. Windows in moulded architrave surrounds with
glazing bars intact. In the centre of the roof is a rather heavy tower of
complicated design. It consists of groups of 4 columns at the angles with
a recess between containing 2 columns, and a clock face above. Dentilled
cornice over and parapet surmounted by a stepped pyramid with a weather vane
over it. The building is flanked on each side by a carriage archway leading
to the stable yard. These are round-headed arches flanked by twin columns
with a cornice and parapet over. The yard is a long rectangular space be-
tween the stable building and the service wing of the house behind to the
east. This also dates from 1786 and is a two-storey building of white brick.
This originally had a tower similar to that on the stables, but this has
been demolished.
