House & Family History: Crabbet is a rose brick house with stone dressings that sports a nine-bay front with a three-bay pedimented projection.
Comments: Pevsner, in "The Buildings of England: Sussex," writes that Crabbet is an "unexpected and memorable case of a neo-Queen-Anne in the true (not the Norman-Shaw) sense of the word at so early a date."
Garden & Outbuildings: In July of 1878 Wilfrid Scawen Blunt and Lady Anne Blunt established the Crabbet Park Stud, which imported the first Arabian horses to England. The Orangery and Tennis Court, both of the early 20th century, are extant.
