C15 timber-framed Wealden hall-house with plaster infilling and curved braces,
2 storeys and attics. The end window bays on the 1st floor oversail on the
protruding ends of the floor joists and brackets. The recessed portion in
the centre has overhanging eaves supported at each end on a curved brace and
in the centre on another pair of the same standing on a projecting bracket.
Steeply pitched hipped tiled roof with 2 modern hipped dormers. Four casement
windows. Brick chimney-breast on the north wall, with a modern portion built
out beyond it on the ground floor. King Prajadhipok of Siam who reigned from
1925-35 and abdicated in 1935 lived here for some years. A good example of
a Wealden Hall-house, a form not typical in Biddenden.
