View of Cecil Lodge in Abbots Langley. It is thought that the house was built in the 1760s for the Legrand family. The house is described in a local newspaper advertisement when it was put up for sale in the 1820s, it reads,
“The house is seated on a lawn with carriage sweep in front, double entrance gates; containing a handsome entrance hall, paned, with a portico in front; an excellent dining- parlour, with bowed end, an elegant drawing room, library opening to a beautiful conservatory, study, etc, all fitted in a tasteful manner; French windows opening to the lawn; a commodious staircase, with two dressing rooms, water closet &c, four secondary bedchambers, and two smaller ones on the upper floor, with a roomy landing and store closets”.
