It was built back in 1741, and is long lost in the history. It was purchased in the 90s by Spitalfields Trust and then sold to Tim Knox, who is a historian of British origin and is also the director of the Fitzwilliam Museum, located in Cambridge and it was sold for a price of nearly $355,200. Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, a popular landscaper, also pitched in the project to renew this amazing and history-rich building.
