Striking family home providing elegant rooms of comfortable proportion with views towards Asheldham Church. Occupying a peaceful setting, Asheldham Hall provides three storey accommodation with the rare and impressive presence of a Queen Anne façade and rear elevations of an earlier period. In brief there are eight bedrooms, three principal receptions and a cellar/games room. The property enjoys an attached self-contained one bedroom ground floor annexe and a separate detached one/two bedroom cottage which we understand is under separate title, offering the potential for separation or to be utilised as a rental income. The property is approached over a sweeping drive and stands in mature grounds of around 1.8 acres. Located in the rural village of Asheldham the property is situated approximately 1.3 miles away from Southminster train station providing a direct link into London.

This wonderful home offers versatile and substantial living accommodation and is entered through a south facing garden room opening to a welcoming reception hall. The reception hall displays an exposed timber frame and offers wide spindle balustrade stairs rising to first floor landing. The sitting room and dining room are located off the reception hall and are both well-proportioned reception rooms. Of particular note is the sitting room which includes attractive oak panelled walls and redbrick chimney breast. To the flank wall, an historical map of Essex features to the entire wall. To the middle of the house is the morning/breakfast room with a side door to the exterior, wide original chimney breast, and period door with steps down to the cellar. The cellar is a very useful multi-purpose room and in the past has been used as a games/entertainment room with bar area and flagstone flooring. The kitchen is located off the morning room and includes a range of units and roll top working surfaces incorporating a sink, recess and plumbing for white goods and built in appliances. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is the cloakroom fitted with a two piece white suite consisting low level flush wc and wash hand basin. There are two independent staircases leading to the first floor landing which displays exposed timbers and is of a split level design with further staircase rising to the upper floor. The first floor includes four bedrooms, one with en suite facilities, a family bathroom and separate shower room. To the second floor there are the two remaining bedrooms and a bathroom making this an ideal teenage or au pair level. Adjoining the rear of the house is a one bedroom cottage which comprises bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and lounge/diner. There is also a detached one bedroom self-contained 'bothy' cottage which is listed under separate title. We understand that both cottages are currently tenanted on assured short hold tenancies.
