This impressive listed farmhouse enjoys a superb location on the periphery of this sought after and well positioned North Essex village. The farmhouse is believed to have 14th Century origins and has had later additions over the years and was heavily gentrified and now has a delightful Georgian façade with large sash windows to the front elevation.
The property is accessed via a panelled door which is flanked by fluted pillars with detailed carving and a pediment above. The entrance hall runs the depth of the property and has an attractive Georgian staircase rising to the galleried landing and there is a glazed door to the rear giving views to the gardens and fields beyond.
The two principal reception rooms are situated to the front elevation of the property with the drawing room benefiting from a dual aspect overlooking the garden, and this has an attractive 'Arts & Craft' carved wooden fire surround with tiled hearth, flanked by two recesses with arched tops. The sitting room has a detailed carved wooden fire surround and brick hearth and has a heavily timbered ceiling and takes in views to the gardens and driveway. The dining room is situated to the rear of the property adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room and is believed to be housed in the oldest part of the property. There is an ornate cast iron fire grate with oak surround and this is flanked by two storage cupboards, one of which has a delightful original oak ledge and board door. There is close oak studding to the walls and a further oak ledge and board door to the kitchen/breakfast room. The study is situated to the rear of the property giving a dual aspect to the rear gardens and a red brick chimney breast provides a focal point. There is built-in storage and a charming corner cupboard with arched back and carved shelves with storage beneath.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a dual aspect giving delightful views to the rear garden, moat and countryside beyond. It has been recently refitted with a range of floor and wall mounted cream units with integral appliances to include a halogen hob, oven and grill and extractor hood over. Appliances include a 'Hotpoint' fridge and washing machine. Directly accessed from the kitchen/breakfast room is the former dairy which has an attractive brick floor and extensive shelving now providing a useful pantry. The rear boot room accesses a pretty brick paved courtyard and there are two flush doors leading to a cloakroom and wet room. The remainder of the ground floor accommodation comprises a cellar which can be accessed from the reception hall and two storage buildings situated next to the boot room.
The first floor is equally charming with the aforementioned galleried landing which has a window to the rear giving impressive views and a feature curved wall which accesses one of the bedrooms.
The principal bedroom is situated to the front of the property and has a heavily timbered ceiling, exposed floorboards and a large sash window giving views to the front garden.
There is also a door to a large storage cupboard. The second bedroom is situated to the front elevation of the property and benefits from the same views as the principal bedroom toward the front gardens and has a storage cupboard with hanging space. There are three further bedrooms, one of which is accessed via two of the other bedrooms and can be used as a dressing room. The rear landing has a door to a linen cupboard and a further ledge and board door leads to a second staircase going down to the kitchen/breakfast room. The bathroom is situated to the rear of the property and has recently been refurbished and takes in splendid views to the rear garden. It is fitted with a matching white suite with a shower over the bath. The store room has stairs leading to the loft.
The property is approached via security gates accessing the farmyard and a drive leads to an attractive red brick bridge over the moat leading to the drive which provides extensive parking to the front of the property. The drive is flanked by large expanses of lawn which boast a variety of specimen trees which include a particularly attractive flowering cherry, apple and evergreen. There are densely stocked herbaceous borders to the sides of the garden and the property sits within its own grounds which are flanked by the moat.
Access can be gained all around the property and there is an attractive paved courtyard which gives access to the boot room and storage buildings. The rear gardens comprise large expanses of lawn which are flanked by mature hedging and screening with further herbaceous borders to the side of the property.
