Summary

Significance: This is a story and a half building of brick laid in Flemish bond. It is covered with a gambrel roof with unusually steep lower slope, which is pierce by gabled dormers. In plan the house is L shaped with a center stair hall, and two flanking rooms in the long arm and a subsidiary stair hall and another room in the wing. ... Toddsbury is often called a 17th century house with 18th century additions, the wing being called the earlier section. There is, however, no evidence of this as the roof boarding of the latter projects under the roof of the former, indicating that they were built simultaneously. The land was patented by Thomas Todd in 1657 but later went to the Tabb family. About 1870 it was purchased by the parents of Mr. William Mott, who died about 1939, and has been since then the Mott family house.
