Hylands House & Grand Pavilion

Hylands House is a grade II* listed Neo-Classical elegant villa with meticulously restored period rooms from both Georgian and Victorian eras. Originally built as a modest red brick Queen Anne style home in 1730 by local MP Sir John Comyns, the house and parkland was redesigned by famous landscape designer and architect Humphry Repton. Hylands House was rescued from ruin by Chelmsford City Council and restoration was completed in 2007. Steeped in history and set amongst beautiful surroundings Hylands House is a fascinating place to explore.

Hylands Estate is almost 300 years old, and has a fascinating and rich history. This illustrious history accounts for nine owners including Chelmsford City Council and a landscape architect who put the Estate on the map, two world wars, and a restoration to its former glory. Each owner has stamped their mark on the estate, extending and remodelling according to their tastes and fashion of the day.
