Built in the late 19th century on the Copped Hall Estate, this is a magnificent and unique country house set in an elevated position enjoying outstanding panoramic views. It lies within 23 miles of Central London and only 1.7 miles from a London Underground station (Central Line).

Tucked away in a private location overlooking stunning landscaped gardens and with an exceptional vista, The Wood House is an exceptional property. Built in the late 19th Century on the Copped Hall Estate by Ernest James Wythes, it was constructed to the designs of Walter E. Tower and Charles Eames Kempe.

The principal reception rooms, adjacent to each other are both grand and welcoming, with outstanding views over the rose gardens and grounds beyond. The drawing room is superb for entertaining with its magnificent pale oak panelling, elaborate ornamental plasterwork and stained glass inset into the deep bay windows. The hallway leads on to the dining room, Clive Christian kitchen and breakfast room, with the lower ground floor providing an excellent space for socilaising with a fitted bar area leading through to a games room.

There are six double bedrooms on the first floor, all with individual quality en suite facilities. The master suite is suitably impressive with two deep bays offering wonderful views of the grounds.

There is a detached Tudor-style cottage with self-contained accomodation near to the main house as well as a staff apartment above the garage and groom's accommodation set within the stable block. Within the stunning grounds there is a heated pool and to the west is the all weather tennis court and further on, the full size football pitch.


The estate is set in an idyllic location at the end of a private lane conveniently placed for the local amenities yet discreetly positioned for privacy and security. It is situated on the fringes of the 2,400 hectare Epping Forest, two thirds of which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation.
Despite its rural setting, Wood House Estate is very well positioned for easy access to the motorway network via the M25, which links with the M1 (for the north), and the M11. Epping Station is also 1.7 miles away with London Underground (Central Line) trains to London Liverpool Street from 38 minutes and Canary Wharf from 43 minutes (Central and Jubilee Line). Epping is an historic market town, popular with
commuters and those who seek to combine access to the countryside with the convenience of excellent transport links and local facilities. The town centre offers a range of shops, bars and restaurants and there are excellent schools nearby.
