Historic Environment Record entry
A well-proportioned circa 1840 house in the Georgian style, retaining historic character, the interest enhanced by the strong contribution of the building to its prominent waterfront setting.
Mid-19th century house, renovated late 20/early 21st century. Evidence dates the house's construction to around 1840.
The land was purchased in 1836 and 1838 by Jean Dumaresq, who built the house and sold it to George Ching in 1842.
The house is illustrative of the period in Island history following the end of the wars with France when overseas trade increased and there was a steady flow of English arrivals, all of which led to greater demand for what was considered to be the more sophisticated and fashionable style of Georgian architecture.
Five-bay, two-storey, double-pile house set back from the road with a garden at the front which provides an intended grand setting for the property. Single storey wing to the west.
There is a later east wing and garden room on the south, and 20th century single storey extension to the west.
