A truly outstanding 16th century Grade II listed house set in beautiful gardens and grounds in the prestigious location of Rolls Park, Chigwell.
For centuries Rolls Park was known as Chigwell's most famous building with a rich heritage among its former owners and visitors. Built in the 17th century, the stately home was best known as the family seat of the Harvey family who owned it for many generations.
Among their famous members was Dr William Harvey who discovered the circulation of the blood in 1628. Perhaps the most famous occupant of the home was Admiral Sir Eliab Harvey who fought alongside Admiral Nelson as one of the key figures in the Battle of Trafalgar.
All that remains of the site today is the Stables, a Cottage and the Orangery, which was rebuilt, although the area of the estate, near the end of Chigwell High Road, is still known as Rolls Park Corner.
Chigwell contains some of the area's finest properties and the Stables is ideally located for the local amenities including a comprehensive selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Transport links into London are excellent with a central line tube station situated 1.3 miles away. There are several well regarded state and private schools locally with Chigwell private school situated only 0.7 miles away. There are a good selection of leisure facilities nearby including golf clubs and sports centres.
Access to the M11 junction 5 is 0.4 miles away and M25 junction 26 is 4.3 miles away.
The former stable block of Rolls Park is now something of a masterpiece. The current owners have spent considerable time and effort sourcing and choosing the stylish and 'in keeping' fixtures and fittings found throughout the home.

There is also a bar area and to really impress your guests, not to mention store your much loved wine collection there is an underground spiral wine cellar with an electrically operated glass door.
