SCENIC VIEWS! Located off of a quiet country lane in the sought after village of Stebbing is this Four/Five bedroom detached Grade II Listed farmhouse. Built within the 16th Century and occupying a magnificent plot just short of approximately six acres, Tollesbury Farm really is quite spectacular. The main farm house, accessed via an electric five bar timber gate sits at the end of a shingle driveway granting access along its path to a four bay cart-lodge complete with an office above and a detached barn which has the potential to be converted into a private residential dwelling subject to local planning consents. The Main house has been refurbished and extended to a high standard throughout and affords a wealth of character and charm. Many of the original features including an impressive Inglenook fireplace and exposed timber beams set the scene to provide some historic and contemporary country living accommodation. The remainder of the external grounds include some beautiful landscaped gardens with two paddocks enclosed by post and rail, a sheltered vegetable garden, orchard and a large attractive carp pond adjacent to the main house. Situated within 4.5 miles from Felstead School, 6 miles west of the market town of Great Dunmow, A120 and 15 miles north of the city of Chelmsford, Tollesbury Farm could not be better located.
