Keepers Cottage as the name suggests was formerly a Gamekeepers Cottage on the Suttons Estate.

The modern extension is constructed of block and brickwork with part weather boarded elevations stained black in the traditional Essex fashion under a second tiled roof.

Since then the house has regularly featured in lifestyle editorials, being recognised for stylish interiors and breathtaking countryside views.
