Isel House

Isel House Review

Isel House, in the delightful tree-filled Isel Park in Stoke, was built for Thomas Marsden, one of the region's prosperous pioneers. It was Marsden who laid out the magnificent gardens surrounding the house, which include several towering California redwoods. The well-preserved stone house has had several rooms restored to their former glory, and contains stories of Isel and its surroundings, interpreted in part by local artists; also original anecdotal material, family items, and a herbarium.
