    About this property

    • The house is listed as being of Grade II of Architectural or Historical interest dating from the 16th century and extended in the 19th and 20th centuries, timber framed and plastered under a clay-tiled roof. The house has been sympathetically restored and includes a recently installed bespoke Shaker-style kitchen with a good range of appliances including a Falcon range cooker, wine fridge, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and integrated oven. Adjoining is a well fitted matching utility room and beyond is a cloakroom and a laundry room.

      At either end of the house are two individual reception rooms, both with wood burners and beyond the kitchen, overlooking the grounds is a glazed orangery framing lovely views of the gardens and countryside beyond. Also at the rear of the house lies the panelled home office and the adjoining room is currently used as a gym.

      Mollmans is approached through electric gates on to a resin-bonded sweeping drive leading to a substantial parking area in front of the house. The grounds are mainly lawned and include a sheltered rose garden, all-weather tennis courts, vegetable garden and a useful detached garden cabin which, with relatively small alterations, could serve as an annexe, subject to receiving planning consent. The gardens at the rear immediately adjoin open farmland with far-reaching views.

    I love the mix of period and modern features. Two miles from the M11, five miles from the underground at Epping, make for a perfect family home.
