Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A good example of an 18th century rural house, with earlier origins, retaining original features and character. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

The house has an early 18th century appearance, with a 1726 datestone. John McCormack Channel Island Houses believes the house was refronted at that time but is of 17th century origins - an earlier date also evidenced by the stonework which includes long-and-short window jambs.

Five-bay, two-storey house, with east wing (former granary) and a perpendicular block of cottage and outbuildings on the west side. The main house has a pitched slate roof with dressed stone chimneys, with thatch stones, and stone coping on the west gable.

Projecting on the north side of the house is Les Houguettes Cottage - single-storey, four-bay with a pantile roof and rendered chimneys, one with thatch stones.

The interior of the house includes gable fireplaces, each with long-and-short granite jambs and corbels. One has a granite lintel and one a timber lintel.
