Lincoln Hall

Lincoln Hall is a large double fronted Georgian dolls house1, set circa 1770, with rooms either side of a central stair well. The Venetian window and portico give an imposing façade with a wide front apron with a grand set of lift-off steps with feature balustrade.

New for 2016, Lincoln Hall is a wider version of a Lincoln House and additionally includes a hand marbled staircase with metal splats, double doors in the principal reception rooms, and side windows with window seats in the morning room & library. The library has recessed fitted bookshelves.

Lincoln Hall Photographs3

Exterior

Lincoln Hall is an imposing country home for a wealthy Georgian family. Exterior style was important to Georgian property owners. If the dolls house is plain painted, it simulates smooth render over the entire exterior. If the brick front panel finish is chosen, this is disguised with stucco to the top of the ground floor to simulate a more desirable, but expensive, stone construction. You can choose the exterior finish for the front panel from: plain painted; exposed brick; or, more grand, ashlar masonry.

Outside there is an apron covered with grouted flagstones upon which stand grand steps, which, once lifted away enable the front panels to be opened and reveal the servants' door into the basement.

Interior

Lincoln Hall has high ceilings that make the generously sized rooms seem airy and spacious and allow chandeliers to hang well. The extra width in the house gives even larger, more square rooms with very elegant proportions to allow the serious collector ample scope to furnish the house with the sort of pieces normally associated with a grand Georgian dolls house that won't look cramped or out of place. The extra depth allows use of double doors to the principal reception rooms. It has frame and field panelling in the dining room into which is built a jib door leading to the servants' back stairs. The family accommodation is on the two central floors connected by an elegant double height entrance hall and main staircase while the servants' quarters, in the basement and top floor, are accessed by separate back stairs.

Basement

The basement of Lincoln Hall is paved with real slate flagstones and divided into four rooms: a kitchen, a scullery/laundry, a pantry and a servants' hall. Servants would have worked and slept in the basement. The front left hand basement room is a scullery with a washing copper with light-up firebox, a lead lined sink and simple fireplace. Behind the scullery is a large pantry with shelves. The middle basement room is the servants' hall and would be a bustling place when the family were entertaining guests upstairs. Servants would cross the Servants' Hall between the kitchen and the stairs to the ground floor above. The stairs and the jib door in the dining room enabled servants to move discretely between the service rooms and the dining room. A borrowed light permits daylight to enter the servants' hall via the scullery.

Ground Floor

The ground floor of Lincoln Hall has two large reception rooms, one either side of the entrance hall and main staircase. The right hand reception room is a dining room with field and frame panelling and it has a jib door that opens into a back hall leading to the back stairs to the basement. The back hall is also accessed via a door from the entrance hall. This would enable a servant working in the basement to come quickly to a visitor waiting at the front door. The left-hand room is a morning room with side windows fitted with (non-working) shutters.
