Historic Environment Record entry
A fine traditional house, with datestones of 1597 and 1794, in a prominent location at the top of the hill. Retains many original features of architectural and historic interest.
Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.
Slate sundial on the side of the house is dated 1794, probably right date for that part of the house.
The east facing wing is the older part, the upper room retaining the corbels of an earlier fireplace. Early doors including one with bottle glass panes in upper part. To the right of the door of the older wing a stone PD 1597.
House built into hillside. A well in the garden. Granite gatepiers with pineapple finials.
Old Jersey Houses
A brief entry in Vol Two refers to the two datestones and says that the initials on the earlier stone seem later than the date, with the P cut deeper than the D.  There is no information about the property.
