Full description

Believed to date back to the late sixteenth/early
seventeenth century, Roach Farm contains many
original features to include inglenook fireplace with
bresumer beam, traditional bread oven, wood
burning stove and beautiful beams throughout.

The accommodation radiates from a central hallway offering spacious and well-proportioned
rooms of some elegance. On the ground floor are three principal reception rooms together with a kitchen/breakfast/family room, utility, cloakroom and boot room, whilst on the first floor (accessed via two staircases) are five bedrooms, two family bathrooms, and access to the attic rooms. Of particular note, the triple aspect, west facing lounge has a large bay window with farreaching
views over open farm land from which spectacular sunsets can be watched.

In addition to the main house is a two storey
ancillary accommodation which was converted to accommodate a previous owners elderly parents. Today, it consists of a hall, landing and stairs with a lounge, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom/w.c. and a large first floor bedroom.

Outside is an attractive garden which the current
owner divided to give the main house a private
space, separate to the livery yard. The gardens
have a variety of areas to include a vegetable
garden, chicken run, barbeque with swimming
pool, hot tub and pool house, whilst the remainder of the garden is lawned with a variety of mature trees, hedging and flower beds.

The plot extends to approximately 25 acres which is split into individual paddocks. There is also an Olympic sized menege, 30 stable boxes, tack rooms, several storage barns and numerous
outbuildings ideal for the car enthusiasts.

On a private road off Mucking Hall Road, Barling
Magna, Roach Farm is situated among stunning,
far reaching views across the River Roach and open farmland which can be viewed all year round. An early bird can watch a mid-summer dawn to the North East and if you have the stamina, a beautiful sunset to the North West. Yet, Southend-on-Sea town centre is only 5 miles away; Thorpe Bay Station for the Fenchurch Street line or Rochford Station for Liverpool Street are each under 5 miles away, albeit in different directions. Nearby Great Wakering offers shops, pubs and other usual facilities, whilst excellent private, state and several grammar schools can be located in Southend. Southend international airport is within 5 miles to the West.

A footpath leads to the sea wall/bank of the River Roach with delightful rides and walks: Barling Magna Millenium Park is also nearby.
