Built in 1761 by Edward Hase after his wife Vertue Repps had inherited the manor, this is a big three storey Palladian brick house with a seven window bay façade, the central three bays projecting under a pediment with an elaborate coat of arms. The house was altered in 1862, including the addition of a now demolished west service wing. The single storey east and west wings, the east containing an orangery, were added in 1910 by Sir Woolmer White, and most of the interior is of the same date, though the chimneypieces in the saloon, drawing room and dining room are original.
