who was the mother of Queen Anne, who was born here, and Queen Mary.
The house is of red brick with steep hipped and flat slated roof with modillion eaves
which extends into the 2-storey wings at either end.
Ground floor has rusticated cement facing, with central door with enriched surround
with cornice on carved brackets and open scrolled pediment with cartouche and crown
Garden front has central pedimented doorcase and is rusticated as on the front elevation
with later single-storey wings. (R.C.H.M.)
