Goes back to the late 17th or early 18th century, but the only early feature is the upper part of the staircase which has bulbous balusters characteristic of that period. The front is of the later 18th century, as are also some internal features, such as the doors to the front rooms. It might, therefore, appear that the house is of late 18th-century date with parts of a reused staircase, but from the irregularity of the plan it seems more likely that an earlier house was refronted. There is nothing to indicate that the building was originally timber-framed, or that it had any relationship to the Old Rectory (No. 7A, (122)), adjoining on the W. In the S. wing some work was done in the first half of the 19th century; the back door has mouldings of c. 1840, and the lower part of the staircase has square balusters, which may be of the same date.

The Front Elevation, of rather poor quality red brick in Flemish bond, has at first-floor level a projecting band three courses deep and at the eaves, a dentilled wooden cornice. On each floor are two sash windows with flush frames and arches of headers; those at ground floor have almost flat arches and those at first floor low elliptical ones. The 19th-century door has four panels and a simple pilaster-type surround. To the extreme W. is the door to No. 7A with a plain surround. The South Elevation, faced with stucco, has a Yorkshire slidingsash window at ground floor and a hung-sash window at first floor. The E. end of the front range is also stuccoed. Internally, the doors are simple, with two or four panels, sunk or fielded, with ovolo-moulded framing. All the fireplaces have plain, unmoulded surrounds. The staircase to the first floor is early 19th-century, with square-section balusters, turned newels at top and bottom, and a swept, moulded rail. The upper part, to the attic, has turned bulbous balusters and a square newel with ball finial.
