Full description

Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV177625.

Vis=estimated -/-/1951(pevsner) present front clearly about 1700 but there is a datestone 1577 now in a wrong place and one of the principal rooms has elizabethan and jacobean panelling. Also there have evidently been extensions to the building which now no longer exist (pevsner).

Vis=16/9/1953(os) now known as east downe manor house passed from the de downe family to the pine family in 1396 by marriage and was sold 1867 to the chichester family who pulled down northern wing about 1870. Now owned and occupied by miss pine. While house exterior contains no dateable feature of pre-1700, two of the interior walls evidently belong to a previous house since they are much thicker than their companions. Exterior shows different periods of construction of the walls (os).
