Originally constructed in 1856 this early Victorian Grade II listed property is thought to have been designed by the Architect Fredrick Chancellor of Chelmsford. The double fronted property has a central entrance hall with a staircase rising to first floor and drawing room and sitting room located either side of the hallway. From here a door leads to the inner hallway where access can be gained to the remainder of the ground floor rooms.
Of particular note is the fully fitted kitchen breakfast room which has a range of bespoke units, a bay window to the side aspect providing views over the formal garden, and a secondary staircase to the first floor. To the opposite side is the sitting room and the rear lobby gives access to the ground floor WC and rear courtyard.
The master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobe units and an en suite shower room with his and hers matching wash hand basins and a window to the front aspect. The remaining bedrooms are all of good proportions and the family bathroom is located to the rear of the property.
From the central landing a second staircase leads to a loft room listed as bedroom six off which there is a large storage area
The house is approached from the main public road B1053 via the privately owned gravel driveway which provides access to both the front and rear aspects. The front aspect has beautiful lawns which slope down to the river Pant, whilst the rear drive passes an octagonal tack room adjacent to a 2 bay stable block giving direct access to the post and rail paddock to the rear. Beyond the paddock the driveway leads to a formal parking area with a single garage.
The landscaped gardens are laid mainly to lawn, with established clipped box hedging framing a pebble bath encircling the swimming pool area. To the east of the pool is a seating area and terrace, whilst the remainder of the garden has further clipped boxed hedging and shrubberies.
To one aspect of the property wrought iron railings and a gate give access to the front door. Immediately to the rear of the house is a sheltered courtyard which provides an ideal suntrap and sits adjacent to external buildings which include a workshop/storage space with adjoining garden tool work shed.
