HISTORICAL NOTE: the house stands at the N end of a large
rectangular moat, now partly infilled. It, no doubt represents
the last house of a series built on the site and demonstrates
the continual alterations that can occur, especially when
there are periods of wealth, here, in the C17 (basic
construction), in the C18 (insertion of windows, front door
case and interior doors, fireplaces and panelling) and c1900
(round windows in gables, hall fireplace `Gothic' room and
staircase.) An engraving of the house is contained in
Muilman's History of Essex, 1769-72. Hutton Hall and stable,
with the walled garden (qv) form a group.
