This plan has in the centre an entrance (framed on each side by a slender column) that gives on to a court or yard that accesses the five stalls to each side. Beyond is a room with a fireplace and two windows and a side room with one window. In front of this central block are two identical detached wings for coach houses, saddle and tack rooms, hay and two water closets.
The drawing with its neat pen and wash border may have been intended as a presentation drawing for Mr Peters.

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.
