Ivy Lea was built by Sir Gilbert Greenall, local landowner in 1894. The house was bought in 1902 by Joseph Mounfield, a local philanthropist and church leader in Stockton Heath. The house stayed in the ownership of this family until 1958 and was home to his son, Arthur who continued his father's work. Arthur Mounfield was a local business man, author, editor and church minister from 1907-1941.
