Historic Environment Record entry
House with early origins circa 1400. This was no doubt a very important house with an internal cross-wall and detached kitchen bordering the road to the west (La Retraite Cottage). However, the house retains little of its historic character and features - although there appears to be a medieval beam in the west room.
The only visible original features to record are a very early fireplace corbel on the ground floor west gable, no doubt the remains of medieval origin, and a beam with interrupted chamfer stops and peg holes circa 1350-1450. Other fireplaces appear now much altered in 19th century. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.
The HER entry includes details of the neighbouring La Retraite Cottage.
Old Jersey Houses
Although this house is believed to have 15th century origins and some features dating back to that period, it was not included in either volume of Joan Stevens' work.
