The Property

Lyndon Hall comprises an impressive period family home now quite rightly designated Grade II* Listed of particular architectural and historical interest. The house is understood to date back to circa 1668, possibly with earlier mediaeval core, and with late 18th or early 19th century doorcase. Classically formed of mellow brickwork and hanging tile under plain clay tiled roof slopes, the property has retained many original features internally, including superb open fireplaces, exposed beams and old doors. As can be seen from these details, all principle rooms are of generous proportions. From the spacious central reception hall, offset to the right will be found the drawing room, with its inglenook fireplace and, to the left, the dining room again featuring an impressive inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room is an 'L' shaped room with a rear lobby and inner area off here, together with a cloakroom. Upstairs, at the far end of the long landing, it opens out considerably to incorporate a study area, which could easily be divided off to provide a separate room if required. A small enclosed staircase leads up to the large attic area. Otherwise there are six good size bedrooms, an inner landing area, bathroom and separate wc. Many of the rooms enjoy attractive views over the lovely gardens.
