GV II

Stables, coachhouse, link building and walls of walled garden. Circa
1841 as an adjunct to the country house Lawrence End listed under
Kimpton parish (q.v.). Sandy red brick in Flemish-bond with hipped slate
roofs and painted eaves cornices. Similar brick and moulded brick coping
to walls of walled garden. An L-shaped group of buildings in late
Georgian style in stable yard to NW of house with large rectangular
walled garden linked to NW and reached by a gateway in the wall on the N
side of the stableyard. Shorter coachhouse at S and stables block at W
of similar height and composition. Chamfered plinth, moulded wood eaves
cornice with modillions to projecting pedimented centre, wide round
arched central opening in 2 recessed orders, 2 round headed sash windows
set in similar round headed recesses on each side. Coachhouse block has
passageway blocked within. Stables block has stucco crosswall within
archway with stable doors to R and L, and small white box vent central
on roof with pyramidal slate roof. Low link building in corner
contemporary with hipped roof, one round arched window, and recessed
similar door. Similar 2-orders round arched gateway in N wall of yard.
3M walls to walled garden sweeping up to 4M on N side and down to 2M on
S side. The OS map shows the parish boundary running through the stable
yard leaving the coachhouse at the S in Kimpton parish also in North
Hertfordshire District, but this is said to be wrong and the boundary
runs further to the S through the dining room of the main house.
