Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

18th century rural house, much renovated. The house retains its proportions and some historic features, emulating the polite architecture of Georgian fashion but with a continuing local character.

Two-storey five-bay house with wing to southwest. To northeast is small detached, single storey building.

  2. Jean was the grandson of Jean de Caen, brother of Richard above
