WATER TANK STORAGE AREA 
TOTAL ESTIMATED INTERNAL FLOOR AREA - just in excess of 650 sq.m

CELLAR 
Below part of the ground floor is a cellar with good access steps down to it. This is currently used as a table tennis area, but does occasionally flood with ground water to a depth of two or three feet and is therefore not suitable for storage.

THE BUNK HOUSE 
which is for the moment included in the sale, although it is capable of being split and sold separately and currently planning permission is being sought for its separate use as a dwelling.

. 
The internal floor area of this building is approximately 287sq.m and given a few issues regarding windows and openings it could make a very attractive residence.

THE STORAGE BLOCK 
This was upgraded in 1985 and is of stone and brick construction with a slate roof and single storey. This measures 16m x 4.7m and 4.8m x 3.94m - the latter with the storage loft over.

OUTSIDE 
The house stands in attractive, level, spacious grounds in total of about 6 acres, mostly laid to lawn, but with a sweeping driveway, staff parking area, mature trees, etc. There is an attractive former walled garden and long stone walls and large garden shed. There is access also on to the river bank, locally known as The Bont.

RECENT HISTORY 
The property has been used by the London Borough of Redbridge, who own the building, as a residential education centre for thousands of school children over the past 50 years. As such, it contains many specialist features which would be ideal for the continuation of its current use and has had, in the past, capacity for approximately 44 children and 8 staff in the main part and a further 27 in the Bunkhouse. The Authority have made a significant investment in the main house, including the modern extensions which are in good order and in general terms the property appears to be in reasonable condition throughout for its age and type.
