The vertically aligned fireplaces indicate that there were probably three floors and a basement when this house was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.
The Hearth Tax returns in 1670 recorded only four hearths, however
in 1710 the accommodation was listed as
"4 garrets, Hopkins' room, room over the Oak room, closet, room of the Gallery,
Maids' Room, Room over Cedar Room, Cedar Room, Walnut Room, Oak
Room, Room over the little parlour, Withdrawing room, Great Parlour, Little Parlour, The Hall, The Study (which contained a fine library), Kitchen, Dairy, Cellar, Outer Cellar, Cellar under the Stairs and Hall."
"Either the place was considerably enlarged in the period 1670-1710 or else there were, in fact, very few fireplaces in it. There is a possibility that the returns of 1670 were not as meticulous as the tax-gatherer would have wished for."
