    About this property

    • Designed originally by Ernö Goldfinger 1937, Hill Pasture was renovated and extended by renowned modernist architect John Winter in the 1990's. Full provenance available upon request. The house is built on an east facing slope in the Essex countryside and is a split-level courtyard house. The property has been thoughtfully transformed into a family home with flexible spaces for modern living. The first floor has been cleverly converted to a series of elegant and functional bedrooms including a magnificent principal suite with terrace. Hill Pasture is a light-filled home wrapped with terraces and courtyards taking advantage of views, connections between the inside and the beautiful gardens it sits within. Entered through electrically controlled gates to a drive with ample parking for multiple vehicles, the home is entered into a hallway leading to the raised garden lounge which is defined by a glass wall, bringing the light and the garden into the space. The dining area form is contained by a large window to the north terrace, along the east wall sliding doors open to the gardens. The high ceilings and views create an exceptional and convivial lounge space. A ground level bedroom suite enjoys lovely views over the courtyard garden and is complete with built in wardrobes and shelving. The fully fitted kitchen includes a stainless steel countertop with inset double sink, Zimbabwe stone surface with inset AEG induction hob, larger extractor unit, drawers below with oak fronts to Goldfinger design, AEG steam oven and LPG Aga. The floor to ceiling cabinets incorporate a freestanding fridge. Upstairs there is are 3-4 bedrooms/study which includes the principal bedroom which was originally a painting studio and is now a light filled ‘loft style' space with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows to the south and includes the generous roof terrace and large opening windows to the east and north with views above and through the gardens to the distant landscape beyond. The south facing en suite bathroom is fitted with a bath and shower cubicle with rain shower. There are two/three further bedrooms and a family bathroom included on this floor. All of which enjoy fantastic views. The separate one bedroom annex was designed by John Winter in 2001 and was originally designed as additional accommodation. Now used as an office, the annex sits modestly amid a glade of mature magnolia trees. Hill Pasture has an array of outdoor spaces which includes a courtyard terrace and herb garden. Today the gardens are mostly informal, with beds of roses and perennials, an orchard, a natural pond, a spring fed swimming pool with Roman ends, surrounded by a rose clad arbour and the ‘Chatsworth' walk with clipped yew hedging leading to steps to a viewing platform with views across the Chelmer valley.

    In 20 plus years of agency, I can sincerely say Hill Pasture is one of the most incredible properties I have had the privilege of seeing. From its views to the layout, this property is so clever and I imagine would be wonderful to live in. It's provenance is fascinating and I highly recommend a viewing for anyone looking for something unique.
