Historic Environment Record entry
This five-bay, Jersey house has fine 17th century stonework and retains its historic proportions and character.
Although the roofscape and openings to the adjacent buildings have been altered they remain a cohesive group and the linear group is significant as it forms the boundary of the road junction. This building is shown on the Richmond Map of 1795. It is considered to date from early 17th century, being partially refronted in early 19th century. The tourelle was removed in the 20th century.
The house displays Jersey’s vernacular tradition in the use of local materials and details.
