14/147 Stopham House

22.2.55 II

House, now flats. Originally called Ford House. The Barttelot family which owns it
is one of the oldest families in Sussex and has been established in this Parish since
at least 1395, when they intermarried with the Stopham family, who previously
occupied a house on the site, and probably before this. The Elizabethan or earlier
building was rebuilt by Walter Barttelot (Smyth) in 1887, though some older work was
said to have been preserved within. The centre of the west front of the present
building dates from this rebuilding. It has 2 storeys and 7 windows. Ashlar.
Stringcourse, modillion cornice and parapet. Two bays of 3 windows each on both
floors. Glazing bars intact. Contemporary doorway, moved here from the east front
in the C19, with fluted Doric pilasters, pediment and semi-circular fanlight. The
remainder of the house was altered or rebuilt in 1842 and 1865. The west front has
5 windows, and a projecting centre portion of 3 windows, with a pediment over and
ground floor additions. To the north is a service wing of 5 windows, probably of
2 storeys originally but now of 3 storeys. The south wing with the ball-room was
added in 1898.
