Stable Barn is a stunning conversion of a former agricultural building offering exceptionally versatile and characterful family accommodation, situated in this hugely popular village, within walking distance of the renowned Spencer's Farm shop and the Victory Public House.
The building was converted approximately 11 years ago using the best technology and materials available at the time, and such, all the windows are double glazed hardwood with fly screens, the ground floor benefits from under floor heating, with the exception of one room, and the accommodation is arranged so an integral annexe could readily be provided. The layout is perfectly suited to a large number of occupants and guests.
The property is accessed via French doors to an open vaulted reception hall, which has attractive tie beams and braces on display, two staircases rising to the first floor and a further door leading to the south facing garden. Adjacent to this is a large inner hall which has extensive storage and accesses the kitchen/breakfast room and remaining parts of the building. A square arch leads to the cosy sitting room, which has a red brick fireplace with oak lintel above, a herringbone brick hearth and a wood burner providing a focal point. The room benefits from a dual aspect and overlooks the garden.
The dining room can be accessed directly from the kitchen/breakfast room and reception hall, and provides more formal entertaining space and has an alcove providing study space with a window to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of the house and has a vaulted ceiling with two Velux windows, views to the garden, a tiled floor, a range of floor and wall mounted units, a large island unit, all topped with attractive granite surfaces and up stands. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, Rangemaster cooker and hood, there is also a useful pantry cupboard. A utility room provides practical storage space, with wall mounted units, plumbing for a washing machine and houses the Grant oil fired boiler. Beyond here is a practical boot room/porch with further storage.
The inner hall has a door to an attractive paved courtyard and accesses the garden room via the office. This is equipped with a range of purpose-built storage units and a desk, making it ideal for those wishing to work from home as it is separated from the principal reception areas, and therefore secluded and quiet. The garden room is stunning, with a feature brick wall to the rear, part vaulted ceiling with tie beams on display, and a fully glazed elevation on the westerly aspect overlooking the garden, allowing the occupants to enjoy the afternoon and evening sunshine, it has French doors to the terrace and shade providing pergola. Adjacent to this is a games room of fifth bedroom, depending upon how you wish to use the space. It is served by a well-appointed shower room, with an oversized cubicle, vanity unit with sink, matching white suite, storage cupboard and heated towel rail.
The principal suite has a part vaulted ceiling, with tie beams on display, a range of full height wardrobes, views to the garden and an en-suite shower room a vanity unit and matching suite. Adjacent to this is a guest suite, with a vaulted ceiling, tie beam, Velux roof light, a range of full height built in wardrobes, and a well-appointed en-suite. Between these two rooms is a spacious family bath/shower room, with a large corner bath, shower cubicle and matching white suite.
The first floor is equally impressive, and is accessed via two separate staircases, making it ideal for visiting guests. Bedroom three has a vaulted ceiling, a dual aspect and a well-appointed cloakroom, making it self-contained. Bedroom four is accessed via a separate staircase, has a Velux rooflight, vaulted ceiling and access to a large eaves' storage space. There is a well-appointed cloakroom and a shower room immediately adjacent on the landing.
The property is approached via a private drive with a five-bar gate flanked by post and rail fencing and evergreen planting. The drive directly leads to a large are of hardstanding which provides parking space for numerous vehicles and leads to the detached three bay cart lodge.
There are two principal gardens, one with a southerly aspect, the other with a westerly aspect, both of which provide a high degree of privacy and offer large scale family entertaining spaces. The south garden has an attractive courtyard with a circular stone centre-piece, adjacent to which is a large summer house. There are large expanses of lawn with raised sleeper beds stocked with a variety of shrubs and roses which provide year-round structure and colour, in addition a number of specimen trees provide focal points, which include flowering cherry and fir.
The west garden is largely walled on one aspect with a row of ornamental pear trees which provide screening from the north and colour and structure, beneath the trees are well stocked herbaceous borders adding to the interest. Large expanses of lawn abut the property with further trees to include an evergreen oak and flowering cherry. There is a secluded west facing terrace accessed from the garden room, which has a pergola to provide shade in the summer. In addition, a further terrace and screen provides home for a hot tub. There is a purpose-built dog kennel and storage building on the west elevation along with a greenhouse adjacent to further hard standing.
It would be fair to say that Stable Barn offers exceptionally versatile family accommodation, suitable for multi-generational living, in a secluded position within a highly sought-after North Essex village.
