Stunning family home with annexe accommodation situated amongst protected woodland and close to Brentwood.
Situated amongst the protected woodland of Weald Country Park, this private family home has been thoughtfully designed for multi-generational living and home working occupying landscaped grounds of approximately 1 acre.
The main house is set across one level, discreetly set within the natural gradient of its grounds. The original part of the house is understood to date back to the 18th century and has been tremendously re-modelled providing a wonderful balance of modern living with period charm. The property offers a contemporary kitchen opening to a spacious reception/dining area with mood lighting and doors out to the surrounding terrace. This wonderful room has been beautifully finished and is an ideal space for entertaining and family living. The lounge is situated in the original part of the house evidenced by a glorious, red-brick fireplace and drinks bar. The remaining accommodation includes a grand and welcoming reception hall with a lantern-style roof, connecting the three bedrooms. The principal bedroom suite enjoys a dressing area and en suite with the remaining two bedrooms sharing a separate main bathroom offering a luxury suite and a sunken bath with built-in TV over.
The detached annexe is located to the west of the house and offers a variety of uses, with the benefit of habitable planning consent as a separate one bedroom dwelling. The building has been configured as a two bedroom annexe and home office, with accommodation comprising a main living area (currently housing a snooker table), a double bedroom and a shower room. Bedroom two could serve as a study. The building measures approximately 900 sq ft and would also make an ideal small practice office space, subject to achieving the necessary consents. To the north eastern part of the plot is a further detached studio with kitchenette facilities offering further potential.
The property sits centrally within its grounds, set on a natural sloping gradient, which boasts a stunning amount of natural seclusion and colour. There are a variety of seating and entertaining areas across the different tiers including the main south-facing terrace, along with a superbly positioned heated swimming pool. There are two independent driveways with the top area providing a detached garage and off-road parking. The bottom drive leads to the front of the house and the detached annexe building with further off-road parking facilities. A garden well services the summerhouse. The rectangular shaped plot which is just under an acre has a gate leading directly to the country park.

For me, having the backdrop of Weald Country Park yet Brentwood being nearby, is truly the best of both worlds. The modern kitchen and living space provide a wonderful area for entertaining. With the annexe and detached studio ideal for multi-generational living and working from home.Karl Manning
