Appraisal

This former gates lodge forms part of a demesne group with the house, stables and boat house. The modest structure is of apparent and architectural design. The gate lodge repeats the pedimented windows of the main house. The building is enhanced by the retention of many original features and materials, such as the slate roof and the dressings to the openings.
