Property description

The Old Rectory is a wonderful family house in Sheering, Essex. On the market for the first time in 40 years, this 7 bedroom property is set amidst beautiful grounds extending to around 5.2 acres with extensive outbuildings with planning permission to convert to secondary accommodation.

In its present form the Old Rectory dates from about 1760 although there are 17th century fragments of an older house visible in places. The south-west corner of the house was remodelled around 1770 and in 1824 the house was re-fronted, with spacious rooms added at the east end in the Tudor Gothic style. The Old Rectory is Grade II listed and boasts some stunning reception rooms including the drawing room, dining room and sitting room, all with Georgian proportions, sash windows and ornate coving. The drawing room is particularly spectacular with a fireplace and far reaching countryside views.
The accommodation is elegantly arranged, with formal rooms at one end and the family rooms to the other, including the kitchen, garden room, study and laundry room. There is also a generous wine cellar.
On the first floor, there is a master suite with dressing room, bathroom, fitted wardrobes and stunning garden views. Four further double bedrooms share a family bathroom, WC and family shower room, with a rear staircase leading downstairs. The second floor offers a further two bedrooms and attic storage.
Outside, the house is approached via a gravel drive with parking to the front and side of the house. Outbuildings include two stables, a garage, a workshop and extensive garden store rooms with a spacious loft.
There is also a swimming pool with pool house, a tennis court with viewing platform, vegetable garden, manicured lawns and specimen trees and a paddock across the lane.


Situated close to the Essex / Hertfordshire border, Sheering is a sought after area and occupies a rural position despite being just 30 miles northeast of Central London. Day-to-day shopping can be found in Sawbridgeworth, whilst Bishop's Stortford, Hertford and Cambridge offer a more comprehensive selection of shops and services including upmarket supermarkets, restaurants, specialist shops, theatres, cinemas, art galleries and leisure centres.
By rail: Sawbridgeworth Station 2.2 miles (trains to London Liverpool Street 41 minutes)
By air: Stansted Airport (8 miles), London City Airport (26 miles)
Schools: Stewards School, Harlow College, Passmores School, St Nicholas School, Felstead School, Haileybury College, Bishop's Stortford College.
