Full description

A stunning 'New England' style main residence having large spaces for entertaining, which includes a 48ft (800 sq ft) stylish kitchen, family and dining room with a glass corridor leading through to the impressive indoor pool/spa complex with hot tub, steam room and sauna. In addition there is a substantial three bedroom, 1,800 sq ft single storey ancillary dwelling within the grounds, plus a Scandinavian style outbuilding for further hobby/gym amenities or for uses as a party room.

The property with its extensive outbuildings stands within a total of 8.5 acres, which consists of beautifully landscaped gardens, terraces and water features where there are strategically placed outdoor speakers for zoned music throughout and up to the modern tennis court.

The remaining acreage lies to the rear, well screened and suitable for grazing and further offering the potential for equestrian facilities which would be complemented by the extensive outriding available within the area.

Setting & Location

The property is situated in a unique, rural part of Essex, between Brentwood and Romford, yet so readily accessible for the City by being just 5 miles to the North West of Brentwood Station, 10 miles to the East of Loughton, 6 miles north of Romford and just 8.9 miles from Epping Underground (Central Line) Station.

Horsemanside lies within the rural community of Navestock, which has relatively few inhabitants compared to its large areas of Common land and ancient woodland which extends up to Stapleford Abbotts and across to South Weald Country Park, where there are three golf courses within close proximity. The Alma Arms country pub/restaurant is 1/3rd of a mile up the lane, Alecs Restaurant (Fine Dining & Bistro) 2 miles away, and for the horse rider and country enthusiast there are simply miles of enjoyable access with a network of bridleways and footpaths within close proximity; a pocket of utopia for those requiring a good commute to London in exchange for a country lifestyle.

Ground Floor Accommodation

The property has been extensively refurbished and heavily influenced on an American New England Style theme which offers bright, particularly spacious accommodation which has been designed for great family living and entertaining combined with the comforts of zoned under floor heating (both ground and first floor) together with the modern technologies of integrated sound systems and a Cinema room packed with entertainment systems, a kitchen designed for ease with an internal glass corridor access to its own home indoor pool and spa complex with hot tub, sauna, pool and steam room. The Systemline integrated speakers can bring the entire house, spa and gardens to life (operating CCTV, Multi Sky, Sonos, Music & Radio) which can also be zoned and isolated accordingly.

The impressive entrance hall has a contemporary oak staircase to glass galleried bannister area and there is an impressive amount of storage for cloaks and sports equipment. There is superb family room with doors onto a private terrace area, Cinema room with 'black out blinds' mood lighting and modern projector system (DVD server/X-Box & Play Station systems etc). There is also a small office, a stunning 48ft long (800 sq ft) Kitchen/Family Room with designated TV seating areas, a dining area for 8/10 people comfortably and stylish bespoke kitchen with majority Neff appliances including a large central 'cooks' station with breakfast bar, sink with additional instant boiling water tap (and it truly is instant boiling water); together with dual drawer dishwasher and fridge units and a further range of ovens, integrated larder fridge, freezer and coffee maker etc. Off the kitchen is a full size snooker room (snooker table can remain) or a room which can alternatively offer generous secondary sitting room arrangements, if preferred. There are also service rooms and internal access via a short glass corridor to the Spa complex building.

First & Top Floor Accommodation

The first floor accommodation has been designed in order to create an impressive master suite with balcony, a generous dressing room and stylish en-suite which includes a feature bath and huge wet room style shower with multi jet power showers. There are three further double en-suite bedrooms, each with good views, fitted furniture and accompanying shower rooms. The fourth bedroom has an additional landing door from its en-suite to also serve for the top floor double bedroom which has a super rear view from its Velux window which converts to a Juliette style balcony.

1800 sq ft Detached Ancillary Bungalow
A superb addition to the house with permission granted as additional accommodation for the enjoyment and overspill uses ancillary to the main building. The building of block and render beneath a tiled roof provides three double bedrooms (one with a wet room style en-suite), a separate bathroom, family room with fireplace and open plan kitchen area and an additional kitchen/utility room. The building is double glazed with access doors onto terrace areas with independent radiator heating and double glazing.

SPA Complex/Pool Building

Instant internal access with a contemporary glass corridor leads through to the Spa/Pool Complex which has specialist non slip Flex Flooring, a heated pool, changing/shower room/w.c, recess with Canadian Spa Hot Tub, a Steam room and Sauna. The complex has numerous doors to encompass the exterior and gardens and equally for all year use enjoys an integrated dehumidifier combined heating system for efficient temperature control.

Gym/Leisure or Home Office Building

A further detached ancillary building providing approximately 1,000 sq ft of entertainment space of your choice; currently used as a fitness gym with mirrors to one flank wall incorporating a shower room/w.c and store room/office. This is a Scandinavian style wooden building with a raised decked terrace area to the fore.

Floodlit Tennis Court

There is a modern floodlit court for day/night time enjoyment with high chain link fencing and a summer house pavilion from which to enjoy the game. The Court has integrated speakers from the Systemline unit.

Double Garage Building & Parking

With remote controlled door and a side convenience door in order to enter the house via the utility room. The property further offers extensive open road frontage from which there is a carriage style drive to park numerous vehicles.

Landscaped Gardens

The garden areas are beautifully landscaped combined with a wealth of maturity, huge expanses of either slate or herringbone paved terrace areas and further raised decking amidst the tranquillity of a garden pond with water fall and various water features; all of which have strategically placed outdoor feature lighting. There are also lawn areas, mature specimen trees and a hedge line with gated access separating the garden from its remaining screened private meadowland.

Equestrian Potential

The property has an extensive area of grazing land acreage which is well screened and to the rear of the gardens. The acreage offers excellent potential for equestrian facilities subject to planning. The immediate local area of Horsemanside and Navestock offers superb local outriding from which South Weald Country Park can also be reached with over 500 acres of protected conservation land.
