James Dallaway's "History of the Western Division of Sussex" says that this house
was rebuilt by John Challen about 1780 on the site of an old mansion then demolished.
But he also gives a plate of the house. This, though very similar in character to
the present house, is considerably smaller than the latter, and it presumably was
enlarged or rebuilt about 60 years later. It is built of white brick on a stuccoed
base and consists of a centre portion and 2 wings. Two storeys. The centre portion
has 5 windows, of which the three centre window-bays project with a pediment over
containing a round panel. Stringcourse, modillion cornice and blocking course. Hipped
slate roof. Windows in moulded architrave surrounds but with their glazing bars missing.
At the head of 5 segmental steps in the centre of the front a porch with pediment
over has been added later. The wings are of lower elevation and have 2 windows each.
At the east end of the house is a veranda covering the whole width of the house on
this side. This consists of 4 pairs of coupled Doric columns. At the west end but
detached from the house a tower has been added in the mid C19.
