Full description

The property is located on the edge of the village of Panfield in a quiet rural situation. Braintree provides a good range of local facilities including schools, shops and a leisure complex with a wider range of recreational, educational and shopping facilities being provided in the larger towns of Colchester and Chelmsford, and located to the south at Great Leighs is Chelmsford City Racecourse. For the commuter there is access onto the A120 linking with the M11 and Stansted Airport and there are train stations at Braintree and Witham to London Liverpool Street.

Constructed of rendered elevations under a peg tiled roof, the property was comprehensively refurbished by the present owner about eight years ago and now provides good accommodation on two floors. The front door opens into a hall, off which is a sitting room and drawing room, the latter with a large fireplace and inset wood burner leading through to a conservatory. Off the dining room is a bar area and a door leads through to the well fitted kitchen and breakfast room. To one side of the kitchen is a living room and off the breakfast room is a utility room and cloakroom, with a door leading to the outside. The first floor is reached by a short staircase and leads to a landing and master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and dressing room, with six further bedrooms, three with en suites, and a family bathroom.

The property is approached through electrically operated double gates mounted on brick pillars over a 200 metre long drive lined with poplars with extensive lawns on either side. The drive leads to a courtyard to the side of the house with parking for a large number of cars. Set around the yard is a complex of three substantial garage/leisure buildings. These consist two excellent garage blocks for five vehicles, each with stylish self-contained guest suites above and a further leisure building/games room with good kitchen facilities. The gardens surround the house and are laid to lawn with a variety of trees and flower and shrub borders with a terrace opening out to an enclosed swimming pool area with a heated swimming pool, pool house with sauna, and changing rooms. To one side is a vegetable garden.

A fork off the main drive leads behind the garages and courtyard passing a small pond, manège with a mixed sand/rubber surface (40m x 15m), six fenced paddocks (three with mains water and electricity connected) and a total of five field shelters, two of which adjoin sand turnout/exercise corales. The drive continues to the main barn with internal stabling with an L-shaped internal area, six stables including five full size boxes, a large foaling box, tack/ groom room, a wc, equine wash area and food storage area.
