Historic Environment Record entry
A substantial late-19th century house in the distinct style of Jersey seaside architecture of the period, with a good survival of original exterior features and character. Victorian Gothic villa, built 1890s. The east wing was added in late 20th century in matching style. The balcony was restored in the late 20th century with new slender posts and ironwork balustrade in appropriate style. Substantially extended at the rear.
Internally, many surviving features have been retained, including the staircase and wooden fireplace surrounds, doors, architraves and high skirtings. Three of the original ironwork fireplaces survive, but those in the main rooms were from elsewhere and not original to the house. The hall has its original floor tiles, ceiling rose and ornate hall lantern. An original ceiling rose also survives in the sitting room, but others have been recently put in place. Most picture rails are original, except in the main bedrooms.
