Roslyn House

 

Set back from the road, with a Victorian conservatory to one side, is Roslyn House. This is another timber-framed house, believed to date from the late 16th or early 17th century, built partly in Elizabethan and partly in Jacobean style. The rear wing is a little later and still has some of its timber exposed bearing the original carpenters marks. It was re-fronted in brick in the Georgian style during the 18th century, when the pedimented Tuscan doorway was added. The conservatory was added in the 19th century, The building is listed Grade II*

For many years a private residence and then after being empty for some years, Roslyn House was extensively renovated in 1991 for use as offices with a new development, Beecham House, at the rear.

The postcard view below shows the garden and elevations before the new development at the rear.
