There was a medieval house on this site. Some portions of this, notably the C15
hall, survive inside the present building. But that house was largely rebuilt in
1839. Of this rebuilding there survives the north or service wing. This is of
2 storeys and 4 windows. Stuccoed. Slate roof. Sash windows on first floor with
glazing bars. Pointed casement windows and pointed doorway on ground floor. The
main or south wing was rebuilt by the Messel family in 1890 and again in 1925-30.
The second rebuilding was in Cotswold Manor House style. Architect Sir Walter Tapper.
A fire occurred in 1947 which burned out the south-west wing. The house was left
to the National Trust by Colonel Messel in 1954. The main or south front is
E-shaped with projections of unequal length. Two storeys and attic. Four windows.
Stone Horsham slab roof. Casement windows. Three gabled projections of unequal
length. The east and longest one is still a burned out roofless shell.
