The Old House is Grade I listed. This grading is allocated to only the most architecturally distinguished and historically important buildings in the country: of all listed buildings, only about one percent are Grade I. This importance is reflected in the fact that during its restoration by the developers, some of the most demanding work was supervised and funded by grants from English Heritage, this is reflected in the high standards of the internal work completed.
