Historic Environment Record entry
A well-proportioned 1860s house retaining many high quality original features and character, with unusual Victorian garden gazebo.
Principal house, three-bay, two-storey with attic, with rear wings.
In garden to west is a two-storey octagonal gazebo, with rough cast walls, church tile roof, and seaward facing timber balcony.
The main house retains some quality interior historic fittings. Joinery features of interest are the staircase, with richly carved square newel post with floral panels and fluting, and fluted turned balusters; 4-panel doors; deep room skirtings; moulded dado rails in the hall; panelling and pilasters on the canted bay windows.
Also of particular note is the ornamental plasterwork of the hall ceiling - including rope moulding, rosettes, acanthus rose and an unusual pair of merboys holding oyster shells which 'support' the hall arch.
