TQ 82 NW 11/244 4.11.77.
A house of Carmelite Friars was founded here in 1241 by Sir Thomas Aliber
or Fitz Ancher. It was dissolved in 1536. The present building is of 2 parallel
ranges. The back range is timber framed and was built by Sir John Colepepper
in 1628 but has been refaced with red brick in the C18. The front range dates
mainly from the C18, but the easternmost window bay was probably added in
the early C19. Two storeys and attics red brick on a stone base. Four windows
facing south. The easternmost window bay has a parapet. The remainder has
a stone stringcourse and an eaves cornice of brick cogging and moulded wood,
except the centre window bay which projects and has a stone stringcourse above
the 1st floor also, and a blunt C19 gable containing 2 attic windows and one
window space. One gabled dormer on each side of this. Mansard tiled roof.
Vertical glazing bars only intact. Wide stone porch with Doric columns and
triglyph frieze. At the south-east corner is a red brick wall at right angles
to the house having a brick pier at each end and one in the centre, all surmounted
by ball caps. Interior contains some C18 fireplaces and one room with exposed
beams probably of early C17 date.
