An outstanding country residence set in about 30 acres of exceptional gardens and grounds. This delightful family home is orientated so that the principal reception rooms take advantage of the views over the grounds. The mature parkland was designed by Lord Lambourne, a former President of the Royal Horticultural Society. The grounds are gated and include three lakes, numerous broad leaf and evergreen trees providing all year colour and interest including the rare handkerchief tree. At the head of the entrance drive behind electric gates is a spacious four bedroom Lodge House with its own garden curtilage and garaging. The combination of the graceful country house, attractive setting and close proximity to London makes this a remarkable house.
Planning consent (EPF/1356/21) has been granted to replace the main dwelling with a substantial new mansion.

The planning consent adds a new entrance to be built from Hoe Lane.
Bishops Hall is well situated off a country lane in the lovely stretch of countryside to the south of Abridge village.
