The Stables at Linden Hill, reflect the great emphasis placed on the equestrian dimension of country life during the seventeenth and eighteenth century, recalling a time when stables were designed with a stately spirit and robust grandeur. Inspiration has been taken from elegant enclosures rendered almost as defensive courtyards, such as those of Chateau du Rivau and the Chateau de la Coutanciere. The Stables is designed to have an appealing sense of solidity and enclosure, and to enjoy views on all sides. The principal ground-floor openings are designed as full, tall, rounded headed windows; to the north-west, the stonefaced building encloses a handsome articulated courtyard with cobbles and stone walls. To the south-east lies a formal garden, and to one side, an attractive potager garden has been designed around an existing folly from the original Linden Hill estate. A dovecote was an important sign of manorial status and this folly was conceived as a cylindrical dovecote or pigeonnier, and has long been known as the âchicken houseâ. On the other side of the house lies the pool garden.
