History

Said to have been built c1732 by William Saunders, attorney. The house is shown on the 1842 Tithe map with a long detached rear range housing offices and service rooms. This range was linked to the main house in the late C19 by a bridge and is shown on the 1906 Ordnance Survey.

The front (E) elevation has a replaced front door and overlight. In the lower and middle storeys are late C19 2-pane horned sashes in original openings. The upper storey has small 3-pane upper storey windows, of which the central is pivoting, also in original openings. The L end wall has a doorway L of centre with portico partly removed when a conservatory shown on the 1888 Ordnance Survey was removed.
