Splendid Heath Hall

Splendid Heath Hall

The magnificent home built for Sugar heir Lyle.

Location: 59 The Bishops Avenue, Barnet

Description: Heath Hall was built in 1910 as East Weald, the London residence of William Park Lyle, son of sugar magnate Abram Lyle. It was designed by Henry Victor Ashley and Winton Newman, and their designs for it were grandly exhibited at the Royal Academy exhibitions of 1910 and 1911.

The 27,000 sq ft house is made from red brick with a green slate roof, and built in an 'H' shape.

After falling into disrepair it was refurbished for 40m to include 14 en-suite bedrooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a home cinema, an internal leisure complex with a gym, steam room and sauna, a 600 bottle wine cellar and a panic room.

East Weald was a home for blind people before its purchase in the 1950s by the Bank of China to house its London employees.

English Heritage designated it a Grade II listed building in November 2001.
