This house is of uncertain age. The rear of the house is said to date from the time of Queen Anne and there may still be earlier work. In the latter half of the 18c it came into the possession of Benjamin Tillstone, who in 1790 superimposed a façade of the “Georgian-Italian” style. It remained in the Tillstone family until 1929 when Brighton Corporation acquired it. The greenhouse has been removed and a conservatory built out in front of the ground floor windows.
