1756-1759. Original building now embedded in modern accretions and with altered and
modernised stable buildings. Main (E) front, 3 storey 6 window red brick with carved
stone cornice and balustraded parapet with urns at the corners. The windows have
wide moulded and carved stone surrounds. Door right of centre has Roman Doric door-
case with columns, frieze and entablature (now protected by plain wooden porch). In
front of the facade is an astonishing full height portico said to come from Canons via
Wanstead from whence it would have been purchased after the 1822 sale and demolition.
It consists of 4 great red brick columns with rusticated bands and stone Corinthian
capitals supporting a carved stone entablature and pediment. The return of the
entablature cuts slightly into the top floor window surround on the right. The south
side on the garden has a central full height 3 window bow projection with 2 windows
on either side, those next to the bow on the first floor being replaced by niches (now
with statues). The window surrounds on this side are pedimented. The west front has
a semi-hexagonal 3 window bay to right with pedimented first floor window, and
1-3 windows, with a Roman Doric garden doorway. To the north of the original house
are large modern extensions with conservatory, etc.
Interior: mostly altered for hotel use, but there is a good carved staircase with
fluted balusters which are clustered to form the newels. The house belonged to
David Garick 1756-1779.
