Property description

What We Say at The Zoe Napier Group: This property is steeped in history and character with an impressive array of exposed timbers and brickwork. Situated on an ideal plot with potential for paddocks the property makes a lovely family home in a very sought after area of Essex.  

What the Owner Says We have lived here since 1985 and have many happy memories. The property has a very cosy and welcoming feel and with plenty of space around it was perfect for two children and two dogs to play and run around without the worry of being able to know where they were. With two ensuites, the children could have their own bathrooms and with the three reception rooms, they had a study and Play room without us losing space downstairs for the adults. 

The Facts The property is a captivating Grade II listed character cottage situated on a 1.5 acre plot. Originally part of Wards Farm next door, the property is a warm and welcoming family house with four generous sized bedrooms with two ensuite bathrooms. On the ground floor the property offers three enchanting heavily beamed reception rooms with a central hallway. The property is believed to date back to the 17th century with all rooms brimming with character brickwork and structural timbers.

The enviable 1.5 acre plot is mainly laid to grass with a variety of mature trees and a spring fed pond. The plot was originally a lot smaller when first purchased by the existing owners, but with the extra land now incorporated, has potential to be separated off into small paddocks to make this property a country small holding or equestrian set up
