A Rich History

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 unique and memorable place to host your wedding.
