Early or mid C18, possibly a rebuilding of a C17 house, as Dr Thomas Jessoppe
is supposed to have lived there in 16 3. Hammer dressed stone. Pitched tile
roof. 2 storeys and attic. Stone modillion eaves cornice. Parapet, cement
rendered. 5 ranges of sashes with glazing bars in moulded flush frames:
stone lintels with projecting key blocks. Attic dormer. Round-headed doorway
has flat rendered archivolt, keystone, and fanlight.
Rear has 4 storey parapetted red brick tower: 1 range of casements with rubber
voussoirs. This tower is supposed to have been built by a Capt Jessoppe in
order to see his ships in the harbour over the roof of No 74 opposite.
2 storey rubble extension to rear has chamfered ceiling beams, and therefore
may possibly be the remnant of Dr Jessoppe's original house.

Interior: ground floor has early C19 joinery and 1 room on east side has early
C18 fielded panelling to dado level. Bedrooms have cupboards with fielded
