Set within beautifullly maintained grounds walking distance of the popular and pretty village of Stock, Lilystone Hall was originally built as a grand and imposing Gentlemen’s Country Residence. When ‘new to the market’ in 1847, the young Victoria had only been Queen for 10 years, The finishing touches were being made to the House of Lords within the Palace of Westminster and the Bronte sisters, Emily and Charlotte, had just published their new books, Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre respectively.
This was an age of expansion, the industrial revolution and ostentatious new wealth which was invested in property and the trappings of the finer things in life.
Lilystone Hall has enjoyed a colourful history and remained in private hands until 1982 when the property was divided into separate spacious and most impressive apartments of which No 1 is one.
To stand in the main reception room of this impressive and spacious ground floor apartment is to get some idea of the sheer scale and grandeur which those early occupants no doubt took for granted but which is a rare and impressive sight today.
Offering spacious and versatile accommodation including two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fitted kitchen overlooking the beautiful rear gardens and a most impressive drawing room featuring a beautiful ornamental fireplace (not working), tall ceilings and vast windows which flood the room with natural light.
Really a property which needs to be seen to be believed, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing in order to appreciate the scale and elegance of the accommodation on offer.
