GUIDE PRICE £3,250,000-£3,500,000
A truly exceptional country house spanning close to 8000 sq ft in a classical style with outstanding views and set within approximately 3 acres of mature gardens with heated swimming pool and outbuildings.

Larkmead Hall is located in a remarkably private and peaceful setting yet conveniently situated close to the village of Theydon Bois of which provides a range of local amenities including public houses (in particular The Queen Victoria), restaurants, Tesco’s, Belgique and a primary school. A wider range of amenities can be found in nearby Epping and Loughton, both of which have a Marks & Spencer’s supermarket.

Communications are excellent with Junction 26 of the M25 just 4 miles away and Junction 5 of the M11 3 miles away both providing fast access to London, Heathrow and Stansted Airport. Theydon Bois station (Central Line) is within six minutes’ walk offers swift access into Liverpool Street (35 mins approx.), West End, Canary Wharf and beyond. Incredibly well positioned for access to a wide range of well-regarded preparatory and public schools including Coopersale Hall, Oakland’s, Loyola, Daiglen, Braeside, Chigwell, Bancroft’s and Forest amongst many others.

The property is approached via electronic gates and the long drive curves through mature shrubs through the grounds to the house. Constructed of brick with striking Tudor style elevations under a tiled roof. The principle rooms face south and east orientated to take advantage of the views over the grounds. The quality of the house, which was built in the early 1900's can be gauged by the use of oak for much of the internal joinery including a magnificent staircase. Of particular note is the remarkable drawing room once used as a ballroom, refurbished with high ceiling featuring an illuminated oval alcove and well-lit by deep windows. Part of the house is designed so that it can be used as a separate staff wing or annexe if required.

The grounds have been thoughtfully planted with many specimen trees and shrubs including both deciduous and evergreen trees. A flag pole remains honouring the visit of Sir Winston Churchill during his reign as Prime Minister. In one corner of the grounds there is a sunken waterfall garden providing an attractive feature at the head of the entrance drive. In front of the house is a circular courtyard area with water fountain. The family garden area lies behind the house with an extensive paved terrace and pathway leading to an in-ground swimming pool with facilities beyond and double garage block. Adjoining the boundary there are a range of outbuildings now used as the pool house/changing room, self-contained one bedroom annexe and offices.

Offered chain free.
