Discover Fillongley Hall
Fillongley Hall in Warwickshire has been the family home of the McCullagh family since 2010.
Designed by George Woolcott for the 1st Lord Norton, construction of the house started in 1824-25 with the south front. This was a current copper roofed verranda which is now towards the rear of the house and remains as it was originally designed. It’s now the backdrop to the formal gardens.
This was followed in 1840-41 by an extension to the north (now the main entrance) adding the sweeping driveway, grand entrance with it’s two Ionic columns, hall and library.
Set in 85 acres of rolling Warwickshire countryside, the house is Neo-Classical in its design and the front vestibule has been likened to that of a classical temple. This continues into the entrance hall with its sky lit roof, feature chandelier and four giant red scagliola columns. Looking back at older pictures of the house, you can see that the majority of its original features remain.
The house remained in the hands of the Norton family until 2006. You can see the Norton family crest throughout the Hall and its Grounds. Both the house and the lodge at the entrance gates are Grade II listed.
