The property offers a stunning plot of close to 1.25 acres (stls) and views over the Essex countryside, yet is within easy reach of the M11 Motorway and only 1mile from Elsenham station.

Sympathetically modernised and enhanced over the years, the property is beautifully presented effortlessly combining contemporary fittings with period charm. The house itself incorporates five bedrooms and extends to some 4598 sq ft with a versatile layout to suit most families.

The property was previously used to combine the family home and business, the rear grounds now housing the stables was used as storage for materials acting as a builders yard. This area offers wonderful scope for development/ commercial usage subject to the normal planning consents.

The house comprises of: reception hall leading to the attractive and recently appointed kitchen/ diner with bespoke kitchen units, feature island and Aga with views over the rear garden. Off the kitchen is one of three living rooms complete with vaulted ceilings, timber beams, exposed brick wall and fireplace and a wood burner, bi-folding doors give access onto a patio and garden beyond. Also on this floor are two guest cloakrooms, the office, a sumptuous dining room and a cosy living room both with original marble fireplaces, high ceilings and views towards to the frontage. There is also the most impressive Victorian style conservatory off the living room with three sets of French doors out to the garden, on a sunny day this is the perfect place to entertain guests. Throughout the house are several notable Victoria features including, wide stripped and exposed floor boards, timber framed sash windows and working shutters, fire places and generously high ceilings.

A cinema/ entertainment room with bar is located on the lower floor, there is limited natural light which makes for a cosy bolt hole. Cool in the summer providing the perfect escape on a boiling hot day yet, warm in the winter for family time when gathered to watch those Christmas classics.

The first floor is equally as impressive and the generous room proportions are consistent with those on the ground floor. All five bedrooms feature large sash windows and are accompanied by two bathrooms and a shower room. The master suite as you would expect is the pick of the bunch with an en-suite bathroom and walk in dressing room.
The landing is also a spectacular feature of this floor and gives a true sense of space this magnificent property possesses.

Enviably located, and being predominately surrounded by organic farmland and other residences. The boundary to the front is defined by a white picket fence and is approached via two sets of attractive timber gates opening to an extensive shingled driveway shingle drive to the side and rear of the house. The remainder of the carriage driveway to the front is block paved. The driveway leads to a small collection of stables with light and power supplied.
The formal garden to the rear has been maintained to the same high standards by the present owners and extends to a large area of lawn with mature hedging to either side and a varied selection of topiary bushes.
