The entry in Pevsner's Sussex: West (with Elizabeth Williamson, Tim Hudson, Jeremy Musson & Ian Nairn, 2019) reads:

EASTERGATE. PINE TREES, Littleheath Road, 1.5m N, beyond the A27. Small white-walled cottage by Voysey, 1909, as a holiday house for his brother, Arthur, who rejected the first two-storey design in favour of simplicity and cheapness. Discernible amid later alterations the living rooms, with cast-iron casements in Bath stone surrounds, latched doors and a loft ladder all typical of Voysey, and the former stable in line (stable door resited). Sympathetic extensions by Joanna Jefferson Architects, 2003 and 2011.

An earlier two-storey design was not built.
