Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A farm group with 16th century origins, retaining historic character and some early fabric. House, probably 16th century, with 19th century alterations. The building is shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Two-storey four-bay farmhouse with wing to east running south, and detached two-storey outbuilding to northeast. Later two-storey wing projecting from northwest corner. A wing at right angles to the right of the house was used as a farm building, but now forms part of the main house. It has one bay to the left and two to the right of a doorway.

Above the doorway is a former loading door, approached by external stone steps which have lost their upper platform. Windows are chamfered, one with an accoladed lintel and another which had iron bars. Detached outbuilding to roadside, rubble granite with quoins. The house displays Jersey’s vernacular tradition in the use of local materials and details.

Old Jersey Houses

Its age merits a brief appearance in Volume One.

"The proportions suggest that the arch and all the windows have been enlarged vertically at some time, but they have been very well done, and all the additional stones are chamfered to match.
"The arch has a double row of small stones lying horizontally above the main arch stones; these are decorative rather than constructional, and suggest a transition period between the double and single voussoired arch, perhaps about 1580-90.
"To the east there is an outbuilding with a straight stone stairway; this building also has chamfered windows, one with an accolade lintel, and one which has had iron bars. This may have been a dower wing, more or less contemporary with the main house."
