Full description

Downham Hall is an attractive, redbrick country
house which was extended in the early 1900s,
although its history is much earlier. Records show a house on the site since the 13th Century, but the origin of the current house dates from about 1717, when it was first rebuilt by Osmond Beauvoir. Today, Downham Hall is divided into two separate residences which are both on the market.

Wing North, being the larger residence with
accommodation approaching 4000 sq ft, offers
spacious and well-proportioned rooms of some
elegance which radiates from a central entrance
hall. On the ground floor are four principle reception rooms together with a kitchen, utility and a shower room, whilst on the first floor are seven bedrooms, two with potential to be either dressing rooms or studies, and a family bathroom with separate WC. This handsome country home is the ideal opportunity for a larger family or for those that enjoy entertaining.

Situated off Castledon Road which is surrounded by open countryside, Downham Hall is very conveniently located for any one of several local towns including Wickford and Billericay, which both have a mainline rail service to London's Liverpool Street, or Basildon. There is a public footpath behind the property which leads to the station. Each of these towns has a comprehensive range of shopping, transport and entertainment amenities. The area is very well serviced for primary and secondary schools which include Downham Church of England Primary School, Mayflower High School and the independent St. John's School in Billericay.

Stansted Airport which lies to the northwest
caters for domestic flights and international
destination, with Southend and Gatwick airports
also easily accessed. Downham Hall is also well
place for major road communications which
including the A12, A130 and the M25.

This family home takes full advantage of its
outstanding position enjoying delightful views over the gardens, farmland and countryside beyond. The East facing grounds are about 0.43 of an acre and are mainly lawned with a low hedging to the boundary. The property can be found at the very end of a lane just off of Castledon Road.
