St. Andrew's House was built in the first half of the 18th century as a small two-storeyed dwelling with attics; it had two rooms to each floor and a small projection at the back for a staircase. In the late 18th century additions were built at the rear. The building was further increased in depth by extensions in the early 19th century, and much of the interior was refitted, including a new staircase. Considerable alterations were also made to the S.W. front by the refenestration of the first floor, the replacement of the entrance doorway and the addition of stucco
