SHEEPHATCH HOUSE (formerly Heathy Field), ¾ m. N, is a stuccoed villa of c. 1840 with a delicate Baroque shell-hooded doorway by Lutyens, 1890. (O’Brien et al,2022, p.685)

Although he only occasionally used Georgian for exteriors, he constantly used classical details for interiors, usually for fireplaces, cornices, columns and staircases. The shell-hooded doorway at Sheephatch House, Tilford of 1890 is the earliest known classical feature of his work. (Amery et al., 1981, p.76)
