2. James Dallaway's "History of the Western Division of Sussex" says that this house was rebuilt by John Challen about 1780 on the site of an old mansion then demolished. But he also gives a plate of the house. This, though very similar in character to the present house, is considerably smaller than the latter, and it presumably was enlarged or rebuilt about 60 years later. It is built of white brick on a stuccoed base and consists of a centre portion and 2 wings. Two storeys. The centre portion has 5 windows, of which the three centre window-bays project with a pediment over containing a round panel. Stringcourse, modillion cornice and blocking course. Hipped slate roof. Windows in moulded architrave surrounds but with their glazing bars missing. At the head of 5 segmental steps in the centre of the front a porch with pediment over has been added later. The wings are of lower elevation and have 2 windows each. At the east end of the house is a veranda covering the whole width of the house on this side. This consists of 4 pairs of coupled Doric columns. At the west end but detached from the house a tower has been added in the mid C19.
