Background and history

This is an important Manor House, Listed Grade II* as being of architectural and historical importance. The listing notes a 15th Century house, extended in the mid-16th Century, altered in the 20th Century. The imposing elevations clearly depict the 2 periods; the timber framed and plastered original hall house to which the grander Tudor wing was added in red brick with blue brick diapering all set beneath clay tiled roofs. The principal accommodation, which retains many fine period features, is set over 2 floor including 6 reception rooms and 5 bedrooms with further bedrooms and useful attic areas on the second floor. The mature gardens and grounds extend to around 4 acres and contain a large garage block with games room above, hard tennis court and a brick barn with planning consent from Braintree District Council 06/01406/FUL, for conversion to an indoor swimming pool and conservatory with a glazed link from the main house (we understand that a technical start has been signed off to implement the planning).

A registered livery yard for 6 horses containing 6 stables, tack room, manege and hay barn.
