Summary

This house appears to be a normal two storey three bay Georgian building with a central round-headed doorway. However, it began life as a single storey thatched dwelling of flint, brick and re-used medieval stone from St Mary's Abbey (NHER 4396). A major transformation took place in about 1780, when the upper floor and north wing were added, the interior layout completely changed and a new façade made (it was once rendered). The scale of the reconstruction suggests that it was for a person of considerable means.
