Langtons is situated on high ground in a semi-rural position opposite Weald Country Park, about 1 mile to the east of South Weald village. South Weald is renowned for its attractive centre with a traditional public house, beautiful church and St. Peters C of E primary school (Rated outstanding by OFSTED). Bordering the village is the ancient Weald Country Park and lakes which extend to nearly 500 acres. The equestrian entrance into the park lies immediately opposite the drive to Langtons, providing miles of bridleways, passing through some of the area's ancient woodland and bluebell woods including an area known as Langtons Wood which itself has historic connections with the house. Adjacent to Langtons to the south lies South Weald Cricket Club, which is situated on an iron age settlement. Brentwood town centre is within 2 miles with a variety of shops, excellent private and state educational facilities including Brentwood Public School and a mainline railway station to London's Liverpool Street. There is an access point onto the A12/M25 at Junction 28 within 2 miles.
Langtons is listed Grade II of Architectural or Historical Interest and dates from the mid 16th century with later additions and has a wealth of historical features. The house has symmetrical Queen Anne front elevations with deep sash windows relieved by red brick and burnt headers under a clay tiled roof. Internally the house is approached through a magnificent centrally positioned reception hall which provides access to the drawing room, dining room, study and kitchen and a fine oak staircase. The principal reception rooms are orientated to overlook the front (west) and side (south) gardens and banks of mature Rhododendron's. The kitchen is situated at the rear of the house with direct access into the gardens, breakfast room and sitting room. There is a lovely bright, spacious first floor landing which provides access to 5 principal bedrooms, a further bedroom and the secondary staircase leading to the second floor with 2 additional bedrooms and a room currently used as a secondary study, all of which have attractive views over the adjoining paddock or roofline into the gardens.
Langtons has a long and sheltered road frontage facing Weald Country Park. The front gardens are screened by a magnificent range of established rhododendron, laurel, yew and holly with extensive lawns bordered by established herbaceous borders and beds. The gardens continue to the south which leads onto the hard tennis court, enclosed swimming pool area and orchard. Behind the house is a delightful kitchen garden with a scattering of original timber outbuildings including a pony stable and apple store. In addition there are two single garages and one double garage. Towards the far eastern boundary lies a range of traditional stables which can be accessed from a separate service road from Sandpit Lane which also leads to a modern barn providing useful undercover storage for hay and garden machinery. The service road also provides access into the paddocks which lie to the north, again with frontage to Sandpit Lane. In all:
