This large house, which had an extensive garden running south to the backs of the houses in Codrington Place, was built in 1861. Within a few years it became the property of Henry Willett a man well known in the social and political life of Brighton during the second half of last century. He made many bequests to the town, chief of which was the Willett Collection of pottery. After his death his family continued to live in the house until 1917.
