Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

An unusual linear farmstead: Two-storey, eight-bay with outbuilding attached in line to east. With circa 1600 origins and 18th and 19th century phases, retaining many notable features.

Emulates Georgian fashion but with a continuing local character.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

John McCormack in Channel Islands Houses suggests the property may have a medieval ancestry.

The house has been owned by the McMullon family since 1796. [2]

The interior of the property retains much of its historic structure and interesting features from various phases of its history. The ground floor east room has an early granite fireplace with chamfered upright, converted to a smaller opening with Victorian brick surround.

Notes and references

  1. Translates as 'bottom of the road'
  2. This statement is a complete mystery because the family name appears to be unknown in Jersey. There are no church records in our database, no records in the Jersey Heritage website, no family trees online, for this name. Searching with the alternative spelling of McMullen reveals two baptisms in Jersey in the 19th century, but nothing else
