Located at the top of High Wickham, this property was built in 1891 by a distinguished Greek man named Ionides on the sites of 14 & 15 High Wickham, which he had purchased in 1882 and 1880 respectively. Following the marriage of his daughter to Edward Dannreuther (1844-1905), a renowned musician, and the death of Mr. Ionides' widow, the property came into the hands of the Dannreuthers as a holiday home. The house suffered a fire in 1911, leaving part of the building badly damaged. There are records of the repairs held by Hastings Museum.
Following Edward's death in 1905, the property passed to his son, Capt T. Dannreuther, R. N., an entymologist, then to Rear-Admiral Hubert Edward Dannreuther, DSO (1880-1977). In 1978, there were plans to convert the property into a registered mental home, but this was refused Grade II* Listed (Historic England listing 1043472) The house features William Morris Wallpaper designs.
