A magnificent period barn conversion with flexible accommodation, stunning gardens and equestrian facilities

About this property

  • This beautifully presented, Grade II listed barn conversion offers grand reception spaces flowing onto a beautifully landscaped formal garden and outdoor entertainment areas. There are ready made equestrian facilities with grounds of around 3.8 acres.

    The house is set at the end of a private country lane close to the bustling market town of Saffron Walden.

    Gosias Grange nestles at the end of a private country lane and is surrounded by open countryside. Dating back to the 17th century, the house has been extensively renovated and improved over the years to offer exceptional living spaces which connect with the beautiful gardens. There are wonderful airy vaulted rooms which are bathed in natural light through the many windows, many of which are full height.

    The grand reception areas interconnect with each other and offer individual spaces including a vaulted sitting room, library / music room, dining area, mezzanine TV room as well as a dedicated games room which opens onto the gardens. At one end of the house there is a sixth bedroom with its own en suite shower room currently used as a study/ home office.

    The kitchen is custom built by Smallbone with granite and oak units, integrated appliances an island and a range master cooker along with a walk in larder. There is a utility area and guest cloakroom adjacent.

    The bedrooms are designed with flexibility in mind, dependent on a buyers needs. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, with their own bathroom, dressing room and boot room. This area would be ideal for use as a self contained annex if needed. The three remaining bedrooms are on the first floor, all with en suites, one with a walk in dressing room. These are accessed via two separate staircases.

    The formal gardens have recently been professionally landscaped and provide much interest with a series of interconnected paths, formal lawn areas and neatly planned flower bed borders. There is a BBQ seating area and a covered outdoor party barn designed with entertainment in mind – with plenty of space for a dining tale, bar and a further enclosed section used as a gym.

    The gated driveway is at the end of a private country lane. There is a gravelled turning area in front of a three bay cart lodge and two garages. To the rear of the garage block is a workshop and bin store.

    The equestrian facilities are accessed via a separate driveway and include a stable block incorporating five loose boxes, a tack room, feed store and WC. Adjacent to the stable block, is a feed store, floodlit menage and three paddocks separated by post and rail fencing.

I love the character and style of this barn - it really does feel that you're in the middle of nowhere however you can get to Saffron Walden town centre or a train station in under ten minutes. The entertainment spaces really are quite special.
