HistoryEdit

The house was built for William Stanford, a merchant hosier, in 1775.[2] The front facade contains a large fanlight above the main door framed with a bucrania frieze and fluted columns, with a venetian window above. The garden front contains a three storey bay and may have formed part of the previous mansion on the site built by George Augustus, Viscount Howe of Langar Hall in 1755.

It was converted into offices in 1928[3] and was the offices of Robert Barber and Sons, solicitors. In 1990 it was put up for sale with an asking price of £500,000.[4]
