Castellated Gothic building dating mainly from 1802-4, but incorporating an earlier
house. Probably by T Burnell, pupil of Sir Robert Taylor (Colvin).
Additions of about 1850, and later alterations. Asymetrical. Stuccoed. Hipped
slate roofs. Large block facing east has 2 storeys plus cellars and attics.
Castellated parapets. Cornice sections of string course. Four windows with
mullions and transoms, rectangular dripmoulds. Main entrance in lower extension
coming forward from north side of the large block.
Polygonal angle turrets with panelled sides above parapet level, plain lancets
below. Moulded cornice band over 4-centred archway with hoodmould and panelled
double wooden doors. One storey plus basement range to right on north side.
Large polygonal stair-turret to north-west corner with open quatrefoils above
parapet level and pyramidal roof with lucarnes. Three large buttresses,
stair turret with chimney stack, rise through crenellated parapet. Cornice
band. Three large pointed openings with Y-tracery and quatrefoils (now blocked).
Sill band. Four centred arches to basement openings. Some similar details
to rear elevations.
In early C18, the house belonged to the first Duke of Kingston, who was often
visited here by George II.
Lady Mary Wortley Montague (duughter of the first duke) afterwards lived here,
and Lord Lytton, the novelist, also occupied the house for some time.
