TEIGNGRACE STOVER PARK SW 87 NW

5/224 The Granite Lodge adjacent A38 - approx 1550 metres north-north- 23.8.55 west of Stover House

- II*

Disused gate lodges, linking screen with gates and flanking walls to former drive to Stover House, (q.v.). Probably c1830 possibly by Philip Hardwick for the eleventh duke of Somerset. Banded rusticated granite ashlar throughout, roofs probably still slate not visible, cast iron gates within lower half of Neo- classical Doric screen, Tetrasyle in antis, linking 2 symmetrical pedimented single storey pavilions. Curving flank walls of granite ashlar on outside step down in 3 stages at piers to frame the south - west front, the third stage reduced in length when A38 widened. Each pavilion square with moulded continuous base over plinth with clasping corner pilasters and screen entablature with triglyphs is carried around each pavilion. Single window front and rear with Egyptian style architrave and barred sash (see NMR photograph for pattern) now boarded up. Granite pavement behind gates with kerbs and steps up to flanking pavilion doors, now boarded up, one retaining original 6 flush panels door marked by beads. The right hand pavilion has flight of steps down to basement. Contemporary carriage and pass gates of round section bars topped with 6-sided spikes and pelmet cords, a 4 petal flower forms running midrail and dograil with intermediate bars is now mostly missing its spikes. Bell pulls left and right also gone. This building is a major feature of architectural quality in the garden. The terraces, summerhouse (q.v.) and landscaping were apparently superimposed on the building, which must have ceased serving as a stable at that time. There is a blocked entrance adjoining to the north (possibly to a further yard outside the loose boxes).
