House, formerly farmhouse. Late C16 lobby entrance house,
extended to the rear and refronted in early C18, restored and
refenestrated in 1930s. Timber-framed building, front range
refronted in knapped flint with red brick dressings, rear red
brick to ground floor, (including some early brickwork) tile
hung above. Tiled roof, half-hipped to front range and with
series of hips to rear, two brick chimneystacks. Two storeys
and attics in gable end and five bays to front; three storeys
and attics and four bays to rear range. Front range has
central chimneystack. Windows are 1930s metal casements.
Central doorcase with C17 panelled door. Side elevations are
mainly flint-faced with applied C20 framing to the gables.
Rear elevation has brick stack to left side and projection
housing bread oven. Plinth. Front range has lounge with open
fireplace with roll-moulded bressumer and blank spandrels.
Ceiling has chamfered axial beam and floor joists. Former
lobby has had the stairs removed and early C20 gallery
inserted. Dining room has smaller fireplace with roll-moulded
bressumer and mark of crane. Kitchen has chamfered beam with
run-out stop. Front basement has beam with two inch chamfer
and run-out stop and early C19 coal bins. Rear basement was
reputed to be a dairy and has a chamfered beam with run-out
stop and several early plank doors. First floor of front range
displays jowled posts (including a weathered example showing
this was originally an outside wall) and original roof with
staggered purlins and collar beam though the rafters have been
renewed in the later C20. This farm was originally in the
ownership of the Sackville West family of Knole House
Sevenoaks. An L-shaped building is shown in this position in
an estate map of 1725, showing that the rest of the rear range
was added subsequently. The lease of 1725 specifies that a
manorial court was to be held once a year.

to William Woodhams 1725 in Kent Archives Office, Maidstone,
