Fyfield Hall is an historically important Grade I listed manor house set in a highly regarded country village location, opposite the picturesque twelfth century village church, just 25 miles from the city. The property occupies a semi-rural location yet is within walking distance of Fyfield village. Fyfield benefits from ancient inns, The Queens Head and The Black Bull, a post office/village store and it is also well located with access to public and state schools including the Ongar Academy which is opening in September 2015.
Fyfield Hall, a timber framed aisled hall, has been dated to 1167-85. The hall was the main manor of Fyfield and once had 210 acres of land. At the heart of the present manor house is an aisled hall, built from timbers felled in the twelfth century. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the house was extended with the addition of cross-wings at both ends of the open hall. Fyfield Hall is among the earliest surviving timber framed buildings which has now been beautifully restored for future generations to enjoy.
The house has undergone a complete high quality restoration providing a unique fusion of elegant period features with the conveniences sought in the 21st century including high quality kitchen, sumptuous bathrooms and self contained cottage. The house offers a rich tapestry of surviving historical detail including a red brick sixteenth century chimney and staircase, herringbone tiled floor and several fireplaces intertwined with some beautiful exposed timbers. Despite its age, Fyfield Hall offers generous light filled and versatile accommodation with generously proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms and at the heart of the house is a beautiful bespoke Chalon designed kitchen which overlooks the grounds to the south.
The accommodation extends to some 6,000 square feet and the formal entertaining space and family friendly living space flows seamlessly together. A stunning medieval entrance door opens into a breathtaking great hall approximately 17' x 15' feet with lovely views over the grounds to the south, incorporating an inglenook red brick fireplace with log burner. The key reception rooms of the house, including the drawing room, sitting room, dining room, library, snug and adjoining kitchen/breakfast room are arranged around the impressive great hall. The finish throughout is exemplary, with the use of Heritage colours complementing the high quality bespoke craftsmanship such as the hand built kitchen, panelled snug and bespoke fitted library.
On the first floor are five good sized bedrooms: the master bedroom suite comprises a 20'11 x 17' feet bedroom with a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms and three sumptuously appointed bathrooms approached over two separate staircases.
The east wing of Fyfield Hall comprises a self-contained one bedroom cottage including a living room, bedroom, kitchen and shower room.
The grounds of Fyfield Hall have been landscaped with extensive lawns and beautiful views to the south towards Fyfield Church. Along the eastern boundary lies a small lake and a scattering of mature trees. To the west, adjacent to the entrance drive lies a leisure field which gently slopes down towards the River Roding. The gravelled entrance drive passes through the grounds to the front (north) side
of the house adjacent to the cottage and detached outbuilding/garaging.
