Pett Place
TQ 94 NE 11/57 17.9.52
The house was built by the Sayer family in the early C18, but the core is a
C16 house which was widened and gutted leaving the roof intact. There are
also traces of Norman cellars. Two storeys red brick. Tiled roof with parapet.
Eleven sashes with glazing bars intact. The window bay at each end was possibly
added. The remainder has a shaped Dutch gable at each end and in the centre,
all 3 containing a wreath set in a square of moulding. The window bays below
these formerly end gables are flanked by pilasters and contain wider windows
than in the remainder of the front. Central porch with fluted pilasters and
projecting cornice. Doorway in this with rectangular fanlight and door of
6 fielded panels. The window bay at the east end, which was possibly added,
has a bay on each floor and another shaped gable over. Long L-shaped C19 addition
to the south-west.
