C14 house, probably built by Thomas de Alkham, rector of Southfleet from 1323,
altered and enlarged in the C19. The west and south fronts are the principal
mediaeval portion. Two storeys and attics. Four windows and 3 gabled dormers
facing west. Originally faced with flints but partly refaced in cement. Hipped
tiled roof, the right hand portion with gablet, originally a smoke louvre. One
trefoil-headed lancet window in the first floor. One window of 2 wider trefoil-headed
lights with dripstone over on the ground floor. The other windows date from the
C18 or C19. The west front is also faced with flints but in front of its south
half is a gabled projection added in the C16-C17. The north end is a C19 addition
with a bell to the attic storey. Internally the arrangement is of open hall and
cross wings and the south wing contained the solar. This wing has at the rear
one hall window, with a mullion and transom and sexfoiled ogees in the square
head and the remains of a crown post roof.
