Sir Charles Igglesden, in his "Saunters through Kent with a Pen and Pencil",
says that the house was built in 1818 by the Reverend Thomas Manners Sutton,
who was Rector until 1852. However, the north wing appears to be C18 and the
1818 construction probably comprised the addition of the south-east wing.
Two storeys stone rubble, with red brick window dressings and quoins. Glazing
bars intact. The north wing has 4 windows and a hipped tiled roof. The south-west
wing, which projects slightly, has 2 windows, a hipped slate roof, an unusual
doorcase with enriched pilasters, projecting cornice and square fanlight and
a brick chimney breast corbelled out above it in the first floor. The south-west
wing is a later C19 addition.
