A gentleman's villa, formerly known as Cockenhays, on a magnificent hilltop site. Purchased by Vice Admiral Samuel Graves in about 1750, who repaired and enlarged it. In 1828 it was advertised as having 'an extensive and well-timbered lawn and pleasure grounds'. Eight years later the sale particulars claimed that the house was 'a capital mansion house … fit for the residence of a family of distinction with offices of every description, an extensive and well-timbered lawn and pleasure grounds'. There were also kitchen gardens 'well stocked with fruit trees'.
