GV II

Coach house, now two houses. Late C19, possibly by Sir Reginald Blomfield with mid-C20 alterations. Brick with ashlar dressings, plain tiled roofs; Jacobean (Flemish inspired) style; E-shaped plan facing south formed by central tall range with main entrance in south gable end and flanking wings from which run three-bay south ranges; single storey and attic with dormers; central range of two storeys; chamfered plinth, moulded brick eaves cornice and blue brick diaper patterns at south gable ends. South front elevation: central entrance gable end has a chamfered Tudor archway leading into an inserted C20 lobby; above is a 3-light mullioned window with transom and, in the apex, a blind oculus with clockface; gable is ornately shaped and on kneelers with cut finial; beneath the eaves each side is a row of decorative corbels and on the roof ridge there is a square lantern with octagonal ogee cupola. The flanking wings each have a mullion and transom window, and in the angle betwen the central projecting gable end are diagonally-set extensions with hipped roofs behind parapets. From the outer end of the wings the three-bay ranges project southwards; both south gable ends have attic lights and parapets with kneelers and cut finials; their inward-facing elevations were open-fronted, certainly on left side, and originally had archways on brick piers; the three on the left are blocked and two double doors and a central 3-light casement have been inserted; above are three gabled dormers with 2-light casements; the outer two bays on the right side are now glazed and boarded but the north end bay has a mullion and transom window and a doorway with sandstone quoins and lintel; above is a flat-roofed tile-hung dormer. The side and rear elevations have been altered but some blind oriels, possibly former mangers, are retained at rear. Included partly for group value.
