Built on the site of a 17th century house called Leyceters, Beechfield House was built 1794-9 for Rev. J.L. Willis. It was latterly owned by Sir G. Goldney M.P. (1814-1900) and Sir F.H. Goldney (1846-1920).
Beechfield House is considered the height of sophisticated Georgian architecture in the area with a central projecting ashlar enclosed porch with Doric pilasters. There is a broad central arch with large traceried fanlight over a 6-panel door and sidelights, with pilasters between.
