The house dates probably from the second quarter of the 17th century. It is compact, highly finished and generally well preserved. There are few signs of alteration on the ground floor other than the insertion of a partition but the division of the first floor appears largely or wholly modern.

The house is a remarkably complete and expensively finished small house of the mid-17th century with many good original features. It is interesting as a complete house of its date apparently uninfluenced by an earlier one on the same site.
