About this property

  • Planning has been granted for a part conversion, part new build home on this lovely site on the fringes of Stansted Mountfitchet, in the delightful hamlet of Bentfield Bower.

    Under Uttlesford planning reference UTT/19/0383/FUL, and arranged over one level, the plans show a four bedroom, three bathroom home with a large open plan living area, family sized kitchen, utility and guest cloakroom.

    Many of these rooms have vaulted ceilings with glimpses of the gardens and fields beyond through full height windows.

    The exterior of the house echoes some of the character of the original stable block with exposed brickwork and some timber cladding.

    The approach to The Bower Stables is up a long meandering driveway through the plot which extends to around 1.38 acres. The plans also show a detached cart lodge and parking area.

An exceptional, one off plot with a really nice design of proposed house - maximising natural light and enjoying some great views of the surrounding countryside
