5404 Newbuildings Place

TO 12 SW 15/474 22. 9.59


Built in late C17, probably in 1683, by Philip Caryll, whose family owned
the estate from 1609 to 1752. Two storeys, attic and basement above ground
level. Five windows. Two gabled dormers. Built of stone, quarried on the
estate, with red brick dressings and rusticated quoins. Two parallel ranges,
each with shaped Dutch gable ends and chimney breasts at each end. Horsham
slab roof. Central 2-storeyed projection with shaped gable containing porch
with round-headed doorway and room over. Casement windows with wooden mullions
and transoms and small square panes. Small modern bays on ground floor with
hoods of Horsham slabs. Modern ground floor addition of 3 windows at north
end with L-wing of 2 storeys to north-west. The original kitchen and cellars
are stone-vaulted. The Caryll family were Roman Catholics, and the house
contains several priest-holes. In the late C19 and early C20 the house belonged
to Wilfred Scawen Blunt, author, poet, traveller and breeder of Arab horses,
who lived and died here and is buried in the grounds behind the house. The
building still contains the William Morris tapestry and furniture that Blunt
had made for it. Very unusual Sussex house with interesting historical assications.
