Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This 1698 house (with earlier origins) retains its historic proportions to the four bays with fine stonework. Internally the presence of fine fireplaces to both ground and first floor is very significant. The principal house is considered to have 15th century origins, re-fronted in 1698 as evidenced by the dated kneelers.

Research by J McCormack suggests evidence of a stone tourelle staircase. The building is shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Principal house: Two-storey, four-bay, with two-storey wing to west (raised from single storey) and rear wing to roadside. 20th century single storey wings to east.

A brief entry in volume one under the previous name, Ivyside, suggests that one of the datestones could read 1640

Notes and references

  1. Appears more like TS MLC, with the M and L conjoined, in the photographs below. These initials would fit the wedding of Thomas Sivret and Marthe Le Couteur in St Martin in 1687, but that is very speculative. The different carving styles suggest that these two stones might not be a pair
