This was originally Thakeham Rectory. It is a fairly large house of several
periods. The original portion was timber-framed but was enlarged in the late
C17, also in the C18, and it has been since modernised. It is faced with red
brick, red mathematical tiles, weather tiles, stone and stucco in different
places. Horsham slab roof. Two fables to the south front and 2 shaped gables
between these. Modern casement windows. Two storeys 4 windows. A panel by
the door has the date 1664 on it. At the west end is a long wing which was
originally the stables and has been converted into part of the house. This
probably dates from the C18 and is of coursed sandstone with a tiled roof.
Two storeys six windows to this wing.
