Ivy House is one of the oldest properties in South Shields. The site has been occupied since Roman times and possibly foundations or parts of this building date back to these times. The current facade was added around 1800 onto a dwelling shown in mid Eighteenth Century maps as belonging to a local landowner. The property has been improved, extensively renovated and extended over the many years of its existence and many features still evident give testimony to this.
