The building was designed between 1891 and 1894 by architect Philip Webb, a friend of William Morris, for a prosperous London solicitor, his wife and their family of seven children.

The house is constructed in the Wealden vernacular style with sandstone quarried from the estate and locally made bricks and tiles.

The interior is decorated with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers, with furnishings also by Morris, and the garden complements the beauty of the house. The house had electric power, originally generated by a donkey engine in a shed by the old barn. The house still has its original electric light fittings.
