Background and history

A Grade II Listed period Manor House dating back to circa 1570, incorporating part of an earlier house, altered in the C1800 and C1900. The house is timber framed beneath clay tiled roofs, offering extensive accommodation extending over 2 floors. The principal elevations are of cream coloured smooth render relieved by multi-paned windows and bonnet dormers to the second floor. Internally the property displaying many original period features including heavy exposed timbers; of particular note those found in the drawing room, period timber doors, open fireplaces and C1600 oak panelling to the dining room.

The property now requires a degree of renovation and updating to create a wonderful period family home in a semi-rural setting; ideally situated for those with equestrian interests having Church House Farm Livery Yard and Riding Centre as the adjoining neighbour. In addition to the main house, there is a substantial Grade II Listed early C1900 timber framed period barn within the grounds which offers tremendous scope (subject to planning and listed consent) for conversion.

The part moated grounds extend to around 6.6 acres with a footpath running east to west past the house along the driveway and another forking off to the south across the front of the house and out across the countryside providing a lovely walk up to Purleigh and the popular Purleigh Bell gastro pub.

Setting and location

The property enjoys a delightful setting at the end of Hazeleigh Hall Lane with just one immediate neighbour; Church House Farm. The immediate surroundings are principally made up of arable farmland, paddocks and woodland with a series of footpaths and a bridleway a little further up the lane leading out over Spar Hill. There are lovely views to be enjoyed from the gardens across the surrounding farmland towards Purleigh and the Maldon Wycke Nature Reserve.
