The precise age of the building is not known, as there are no original deeds available, but the first record dates from 1878. The architectural significance of the elegant sandstone frontage of this nineteenth or pre-nineteenth century building is important to the market town of Penrith.

The building has predominately been occupied by Printers/Stationers over the years, originally established in 1878 to serve the needs of customers for their printing needs throughout North Cumbria firstly Reeds Ltd as partly residential and retail.  Then another stationers Lakeland Officepoint took over a lease on the building until 2010 when Heaton's took over the lease. 

From Jan 2015 Marshall Mason have carried out a substantial renovation on the building, sympathetically restoring the building’s original appearance and enhancing the traditional elegance to create the wonderful Kitchen Living space you find today - a visit is a must.
