The Story

FAMILY HOME
The five bedroom house offered the couple all the space they were seeking and was bright and airy throughout.
"We liked the property but knew we would make changes to it to suit our own style of living," he said. "Over the first couple of years after moving in we gave it new bathrooms, a new kitchen and new tiling. We also redecorated it."
The ground floor of Reeves Gate Farm features generous living space, including a drawing room and dining area, kitchen breakfast room and study.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms; there is also a family bathroom.
"This is an ideal family home, which also has plenty of space for entertaining friends and celebrating special occasions."

INVITING FRIENDS
When at home quietly on their own, Antonio and Adelaide find they spend a lot of time in their beautiful kitchen.
There they prepare meals, chat at the breakfast table and enjoy looking out on to their surroundings.
"We also like the drawing room, which is a very comfortable room, and our own bedroom. This has a nice calm atmosphere - in fact, the whole house is very relaxing."
The drawing room is ideal for family gatherings in the colder months. In the summer, they make the most of their own appealing grounds.
"We have lots of space for people to sit outside if we have a barbecue," he said. "We have often had up to 40 or 50 people here at any one time - and with space for about 20 cars to, there is always room for guests to park."

THE BEST PLACE
Indeed, the couple have created an outdoor dining area, which is covered and has a barbecue or bread oven for cooking outdoors in inclement weather.
With a car port too, new owners could possibly look into the potential for creating additional separate accommodation (subject to the relevant planning permissions) at Reeves Gate Farm.
"In the past we have had planning permission for the building of a new garage so the next owners could look into the various possibilities here," he suggested.
The grounds also feature areas of lawn, a pond with fish in it and a small orchard with various fruit trees.
"We have enjoyed being here because of the quiet life it has offered us while also being close to lots of good places to shop. It takes just five minutes to reach the M25, 15 minutes to get to Epping and 30 minutes to be at Stansted Airport," Antonio pointed out.
The house is also within easy reach of the Lee Valley, with its many opportunities for outdoor activities.
"We are only moving now because we feel it is time to be somewhere smaller but to be honest we know we will miss it a great deal," he added.
"This has been the best home we have ever lived in."

There is a detached triple car port located to the side of the grounds. Set to the rear of the plot is a detached outbuilding with water and power hooked up.
