This 1950's overlay map shows the exact location, use the transparency slider on the left. Looks like the building is still there.

Also this overlay map from the 1890's shows the building as Hessle House.

Brilliant, absolutely any information or pictures would be much appreciated, I cant really find anything about it online apart from the odd reference to it.
