5/120 Stychefields Resid- ential Home and The Coach House

GV II

Stable block and coach house, now old peoples' home. Circa 1762-6, probably by Sir William Chambers, with late C20 alterations. Red brick with some grey sandstone ashlar dressings. Hipped plain tile roofs. Rectangular courtyard plain with 2 ranges. L-shaped range to north with pavilion (former coach house) in southern corner linked to main block by courtyard wall. 2 storeys. South-west front: pavilion to left and end of L-shaped range to right, each with chamfered plinth, raised brick quoins and dentil brick eaves cornice. Left-hand block with integral brick stacks and 2 brick stacks on ridge of right-hand range. Each of 3 bays; C20 small-paned metal casements (in imitation of former glazing bar sashes) with stone cills and gauged-brick heads with raised keystones. Round-arched ground-floor windows to left-hand block. Each block has central window with moulded stone architrave, pulvinated frieze and moulded cornice (the left-hand window was in the process of being cut down to form a doorway at the time of survey - July 1986). Central gateway between blocks consisting short walls and gatepiers with chamfered stone plinths and moulded stone copings. 7-bay left- hand return front of right-hand block; C20 casements in imitation of sashes with stone cills and gauged-brick heads. Right-hand return front of 5 bays. North-east (garden) front: Raised brick quoins. Brick ridge stack off-centre to left and integral brick end stack to right. Square wooden cupola to right consisting of round-arched openings with moulded architraves and keys, and with clock and louvres to north-east; corner piers supporting moulded cornice to tented lead cap with weathervane. 3:4 bays, right-hand part set back; C20 casements(replacing former glazing bar sashes)with stone cills and gauged-brick heads with raised keystones. Second ground-floor window from left withmoulded architrave, pulvinated frieze and moulded cornice. Round-arched entrance in second bay from right (late C20 door and glazing) with large stone doorcase consisting of moulded architrave with impost blocks and keystone, and flanking Tuscan pilasters supporting full entablature. Opposed round-arched entrance at rear. Brick courtyard wall with stone coping to north-west linking the 2 blocks. Interior not inspected. Photographs (N.M.R.) show the interior of the stables before alteration with moulded plaster cornices andoctagonal oak posts. This was formerly the stable block and coach house for Styche Hall (q.v.), certainly by William Chambers. Despite the alterations this is still a fine and well-detailed example of a large C18 stable block, and is particularly notable for its unusual plan form.
