    About this property

    • Hassenbrook Hall is listed as being Grade II of Architectural or Historical Interest and an extract from the listing states "Early C17 house, extensively altered. Red brick timber framed and plastered north side. Red plain tile roofs."

      The principal reception hall enjoys high ceilings with exposed timbers and features a lovely red-brick inglenook fireplace with log burner. Adjoining is a kitchen/breakfast room finished with a clay tiled floor with under heating. The room also features some exposed timbers. A large island with granite top incorporates integrated ovens, a sink unit and seating area at one end. In inglenook fireplace includes a Rayburn, Whirlpool washing machine, separate free-standing freezer and there is an adjacent built in pantry and butler sink. At the opposite end of the house is a family room/ bedroom 7 with en suite shower and utility room making for a potential annexe. A separate dining room overlooks the gardens together with a dual aspect drawing room, 21'.42 x 14'.8". The focal point of this delightful room is the lovely fireplace with a "Peace and Plenty" design. A door leads into an adjoining study.

      The first floor has six en suite bedrooms, a dressing room and bathroom. The en suite facilities have been installed as part of the current owners' bed and breakfast business they have been running.

      A drive leads into a substantial concreted parking area beside the house leading onto a pathway into the garden. To the front, the house is screened by mature conifer hedging whilst to the rear, enjoying a south-east aspect, lie the walled gardens which are predominantly lawned, bordered by privet hedging and planted with some specimen trees including mulberry, cedar and monkey puzzle. Close by are some garden stores and a summer house.

      The property has previously had planning permission approved for a hotel and has been running as a bed & breakfast since about 1992.

    I think there is potential beyond the family house for this hidden gem. It is strategically placed for good access to East London and the A13, having been a long standing bed and breakfast, it may lend itself to a conference venue, motel or wedding venue (subject to planning).
