Stunning medieval timber framed houses in the centres of Edenbridge and Maidstone

Taylour House Edenbridge

TH from courtyardA stunning Grade ll* Listed medieval timber framed house in the middle of Edenbridge, originally built in 1468 for Sir Wyllyam Taylour, then Sheriff of London (later Lord Mayor of London). It is said the building had the proportions and ceiling heights (12 ft) of a 'fine London house'. The coat of arms of the Taylour family can still be found carved into two of the door spandrels.  The building has a Jacobean staircase and wall paintings of a similar age. It also has several magnificent inglenook fireplaces (with some witch marks) and is heavily timbered throughout. The property was refurbished to a very high standard during 2015 and has some wonderful period furnishings that complement the modern amenities.
