Dating back to 1872 it was originally commissioned by the Marquis of Westminster and designed by the celebrated architect John Douglas who was responsible for many of the Grosvenor Estate properties. It is undoubtably one of Douglas' finest works and fully deserving of its Grade II listing. The intricate brick work, mullioned windows, distinctive tall chimneys and decorative plastered crest over the front porch inscribed with the letter ''W' involved the finest craftsmanship at the time. The house is constructed of brick, beneath a steeply pitched tiled roof with elegant gables to the front faade incorporating delicate mullioned windows with semi-arched heads. Internally Green Paddocks has been modernised over the years including the introduction of an open plan Tegla designed kitchen with breakfast area but the house still retains the character of the original property with many period features including tiled floors, handsome pitch pine staircase, panelled mahogany doors to the principal rooms, period fireplaces and stained glass windows. Whilst there is scope for some updating the property has been well-maintained with various works to the roof, relatively new central heating boiler and a new private drainage system was installed last year.
