House with chapel attached. 1843-4 by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin for himself, later alterations and additions by Edward Welby Pugin. Gault brick with black brick bands, stone dressings and slate roofs. Two storeys with attics.
Irregular and picturesquely massed facades, illustrating Pugin's belief
in expression of plan and function on elevation. Tripartite garden front
has crest returned gable with 2 storey canted bow with casement windows,
2 light attic basement. Centre with 2 ground floor case windows, one
first floor single and one 3 light window. Ground floor plinth, first
floor string, simple boarded eaves and verges to gables. One 3 light
dormer, one ridge stack. Three storey rectangular tower at east with
battlemented parapet, single storey hipped roof projecting chapel beyond
with one 2 light south and one 2 light west window. Projecting gable at
west, addition by Edward Welby Pugin, forming his business room with external
access. Plinth of dismantled conservatory. Highly irregular north front

right angles to west connecting with original wicket gate entrance.
Service wing at north west heightened by Edward Welby Pugin. Interior: hall
with off-axis fireplace, stairs and gallery. Dining room with carved
fireplace with brackets supporting large bresummer beam forming inglenook,
a reference to the medieval hall-house plan. Two reception rooms with
stencilled ceilings with mottoes and heraldry, 2 Pugin fireplaces, one
with outer colonnette additions by Edward Welby Pugin, one with monograms and
saints' emblems of the children. Chapel has early Minton tiles and Wailes
glass with family portraits and patron saints. The house occupies a
crucial place in the development of Cl9 domestic architecture, in planning
and style (See BOE, Kent I, 1983 424-5; Dixon and Muthesius, Victorian
Architecture, 48-9; St Augustine's Guide).
