The Vines is an early 18th century home witha  brick built ground floor with two weatherboarded, timber framed upper floors.  It has decorated eaves, tiled roof and sash windows with the lower windows having shutters.  The house stand adjacent to Restoration House and is nicknamed 'Pepys' Pretty Seat'.  It is rumoured that whilst here, Pepys followed a pretty girl, wife of a hopkeeper, into the cherry orchard behind and kissed her.

Oh and it has decorative foot scrapers   ;D
