Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

An exceptionally fine mid-18th century townhouse with good surviving features and early use of double pile plan form and M-shaped roof.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Formerly L'Anciennete, stands on the site of an older property.

Set back from street behind low granite wall with railings. Very good ironwork. Two-storey plus attics and basement, five bays.

Retains exceptionally fine and unusual oak, M-shaped roof structure, designed to span the double pile structure, sophisticated original pine planking in stairwell, six-panel doors, very fine original circa 1750 dog-leg staircase with turned balusters, half balusters on corner posts and handrail intersecting with string.

Former Coach House: Located east/west end on to street.

Old Jersey Houses

'One is tempted to think that Jean Janvrin refaced a far older house in about 1820 (his initials and the date 1818 appear on the harbour jetty), and it also seems likely that the enclosed courtyard on the opposite side of the High Street was his shipyard or store, as its entrance pillars are exactly similar to those on the house.

Notes and references

  1. The listing in OJH Vol One gives these two alternatives, which have been copied by the datestone index and HER. It seems that nobody has taken the trouble to check
  2. Store seems more likely because this would have been a most unusual place to build ships, some way distant from the shore
