Historic Environment Record entry
Two-storey, four-bay house shown on the Richmond Map of 1795. Part refronted in 1704. Granite chimneys with thatch stones.
The earlier house is now called La Pepiniere - there are small windows and inside huge beams and curved joists (perhaps ships timbers).
Old Jersey Houses
The 1607 Extente records Edouard Le Porque paying Thomas Stockert (Stocall) 19 cabost of wheat annually for ground an old house, which by 1678 had been sold to Philippe de Ste Croix, son of Philippe. 
An unusual feature is that the latest house has been built behind the earlier, rather than the other way round, which is more usual.
