Circa 1800 one-storey kitchen wing at rear with dentil brick eaves
cornice, parapeted gable end and integral brick end stack. C20 garage
block adjoining at rear too. There is said to be a c1800 doorcase
at the rear, removed from the front when the late C19 porch was added
(not located at time of survey - July 1985). Interior: early C18
three-flight rectangular-well staircase with closed string, turned
balusters, moulded handrail, and square newel posts; left-hand ground-
floor rear room with late C18 marble chimney-piece consisting of moulded
surround, tall inlaid scrolls supporting frieze with amphora in central

There is said to be one ground-floor room with moulded ceiling beams and
cornice (V.C.H.) but this was not inspected at time of survey (July
1985). It has been suggested (V.C.H.) that the house was formerly
U-shaped and that the south front may have been of 5 bays. There is
known to have been a house on the site in 1665. V.C.H., Vol. VIII,
p. 226.
