Full Description

A house of 1886. Built by the engineer Samuel Claye (d. 1887) and occupied by his brother Frank Claye JP. Later occupied by the lace manufacturer William Whiteley. The house is built of red brick with sham timber framing beneath a plain tile roof. The front elevation is asymmetrical. To the left is a gabled range with an oriel window at the first floor. To the right is a smaller gabled range with a projecting timber porch. Extensions to the rear (including a large two-storey range) were added in the late twentieth century. They are not of special interest. (1) Modern maps show this building as a home for the aged. (2)
