TQ 32 SE 2/46 17.5.52.
Probably the most interesting house in Chailey Parish.
Early C17. The Victoria County History says that the date 1606 was once legible
on the pendant of one of the gables. Tall L-shaped timber-framed building
with squares of plaster infilling. The west and south walls are of red vitreous
brick. Horsham slab roof. Casement windows with diamond-shaped leaded panes.
The north gable end has a bay window on the ground and first floor, that on
the first floor consisting of 2 tiers of 5 lights with old glass, and above
an oversailing gable containing an attic window of 2 tiers of 4 lights. The
east gable end has a carved pendant. The south wall has an immense brick
projection consisting of 2 chimney breasts side by side, each with 3 diagonal
brick stacks. These breasts were probably added in the mid C17. Three storeys.
Not more than 2 windows to any front. Contemporary staircase.
