History

Stanley Place, including the Sedan House, was built in about 1780 on land formerly occupied by the Franciscan and Dominican friaries. Stanley Place remains as one of Chester's few unaltered Georgian streets.

Architecture

Sedan House is constructed in brown brick on a painted stone plinth, with a grey slate roof. It has three storeys. The windows are sashes. Extending from the house on the side of City Walls Road is a single-storey porch. This has two doors, one on the north side and one on the south. On the west side is a nine-pane window. Leading up from the north side is a single stone step, with two steps to the south. It is thought that this is the only surviving porch of this type in the northwest of England.
