Built in the period 1856-75 by John Blandy-Jenkins and first shown on the Ordnance Survey of 1875. The pier on the E side of the gateway was rebuilt after 1995.

The park and garden, S and W of the house respectively, were laid out by Rees Powell in the C18 but the present structural components were mainly added in the period 1856-75 by John Blandy-Jenkins.
