Bence-Jones indicates that this house was built by Wiliam Bence-Jones in 1851-53. A small property, owned by the family, had existed there prior to the building of the current house. The house was sold by the Bence-Jones family in 1930. The spectacular gardens are now open to the public. In 2014 the lisselan estate was offered for sale. See www.lisselan.com.
