5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
This unlisted early 1800's farmhouse makes for a super family home with well-presented, traditional reception rooms and four bedrooms on the first floor. Period features include high ceilings, sash windows, ornate fireplaces, dwarf cupboards and recessed shelves, pine window shutters, picture rails and ceiling roses.
The house sits adjacent a substantial block paved courtyard with a clock tower, around which there is a two-storey annex (which would also make for a superb office), four stables (currently opened up to create a workshop), a tack room and a 2100-square foot modern barn, which is ideal for any number of commercial ventures or serious hobbies, subject to appropriate planning consent.
Including the courtyard and the various buildings the property sits in a plot that measures 1.1 acres. This includes some large areas of south-facing lawn, punctuated with a variety of young trees and well-tended hedges. Beyond the garden there is a ten-acre paddock with post and rail fencing and a copse at its centre.
HOUSE GROUND FLOOR
As the floorplan illustrates, the house follows a traditional Georgian arrangement with two square reception rooms at the front, both of which have high ceilings, recessed dwarf cupboards and ornate fireplaces (both in working order). One of these opens directly into a dining room that has a third fireplace and French doors to the garden.
Other ground floor accommodation includes a traditional kitchen/breakfast room with granite surfaces and an oil-fired Aga, a utility room, a study and a WC.
HOUSE FIRST FLOOR
There are four bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has en-suite shower room and the remaining bedrooms share the use of a large family bathroom with a roll-top bath and the guest bedroom at the front of the house has an en-suite WC and basin.
COACH HOUSE ANNEX
The Coach House Annex is separated from the main house but adjoining the cart lodge. It measures around 620-square feet over two levels, and includes a good-sized sitting room, a double bedroom, a first-floor kitchenette and a shower room.
It is an ideal set-up for families with a relation in tow, for those who regularly have guests to stay or to use as an office for several staff.
OUTBUILDINGS & LAND
The outbuildings arranged around the private courtyard include a double bay cartlodge, four stables, a tack room and a very impressive 2100-sqare foot barn with a block paved floor that has a vast number of potential uses. EG: Undercover storage for up to 20 cars in addition to considerable private open parking.
The immediate grounds total 1.1 acres plus there is an additional 10-acre paddock with copse at its centre.
The property is located in a rural location in the village of Great Bromley in North Essex. Within walking distance there is a village pub and butchers, with further amenities available in the next-door community of Ardleigh. The A120 and A12 road routes are nearby for access to Colchester, the coast and London. Manningtree mainline train station is less than seven miles from the property. From here a service to London Liverpool Street runs with a journey time of under an hour.
