Sudbourne Hall, in its heyday, extended to some 7,600 acres and was regarded as one of the finest estates in England, often playing host to the royal family. The impressive Wyatt designed palladium mansion stood at the heart of the estate, approached by five avenue driveways and with decoy lakes and ponds to the rear. Sadly during the 1950s the hall itself was demolished. Its two remaining wings East Hall and West Hall, together with the coach houses and ancillary buildings were sympathetically converted in the 1980s into a series of high quality mews houses. No. 14 The Courtyard forms part of the former stable building and presents handsome red brick elevations with sash windows under a hipped slate roof.
