The entry in Pevsner's Northamptonshire (with Bruce Bailey and Bridget Cherry, 2013) reads:

THORPE MANDEVILLE. THE HILL, 1m W. By C.F.A. Voysey, 1897-8. Built for Mr Hope Brooke of the family of the Rajahs of Sarawak. Very typical of Voysey with its pebbledash, its happily informal composition, its battered buttresses at the corners, its wooden veranda on one side, and the way in which the screen wall on the r, with its brick coping rising above arched entrances, cuts off one bay of the house. The porch leads direct into the dining hall, which goes across the house. Adjoining to the S was the ladies' drawing room, to the N on the E side the study and then kitchen and offices.
