HISTORY AND BACKGROUND This stunning late 16th Century red brick Manor House with impressive 5000 sq ft of accommodation, occupying three floors plus cellar rooms and offered with 6.25 acres of part walled grounds with a further 6.5 adjoining acres available, strictly by separate negotiation.

The property enjoys a long entrance approach (initially shared with The Brew House), to an extensive private courtyard.

The house has been sympathetically restored and improved over the years, whilst retaining many exquisite period features which enhance its historical and magical ambience, combined with modern day living conveniences. Planning permission is granted 19/00329/FUL to open the kitchen to a far larger living space with the demolition of existing extension and construction of a new single store side extension.

Numerous outbuildings include courtyard stabling (offering potential to convert), extensive garaging, an enclosed pool house and machinery stores. There is also a modern tennis court and facilities for grazing.

The property enjoys a long entrance approach (initially shared with The Brew House), to an extensive private courtyard.


SETTING AND LOCATION The property is nestled in the very heart of its former country estate grounds, where there are two immediate neighbouring country properties (formerly the grain barn and brew house to Great Graces) which present as an attractive small enclave with an impressive entrance approach with undisturbed, elevated views across its own part walled, manicured gardens and fields and The Chelmer Valley beyond.

Great Graces is a prominent, historical local landmark, noted for its elegant architecture featuring a Dutch Gable/turreted like (moulded brick coping) to its south end, and also for Graces Walk; an ancient track (still part owned by Great Graces) which provides a very scenic public bridle access on the edge of a Nature Conservation Zone and Special Landscape Area.

Its enviable location is close to the renowned Elm Green Preparatory and Heathcote Schools in Little Baddow and Danbury, yet equally well placed for the City of Chelmsford and A12 access, from the A414 at Sandon, where there is also the park and ride site.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
