Tenure: Freehold

This beautifully appointed character home has been extensively re-modelled and extended by the current owners and provides 'boutique hotel' living in a most convenient position surrounded by open countryside yet within an hour of London.


High Laver is a highly sought after village conveniently located for access to the towns of Bishop's Stortford, Epping and Chelmsford. Excellent transport links are provided by the M11 motorway which is just over 4 miles away. Main line stations at Harlow Town and the central line underground station at Epping. Nearby village pubs include the highly regarded Chequers on Matching Green together with two local village pubs The
White Hart and the Nags Head in High Laver village itself. Smiths Restaurant can be found at Ongar and also the John Barleycorn, pub-restaurant, at Threshers Bush. Private and state schools can be found at Moreton, Churchgate Street, Harlow, Epping, Chelmsford and Bishop's Stortford.


The Dower House in High Laver offers sumptuous family living with well thought out living space opening out onto delightful gardens and there is a tennis court and just over 3 acres of grounds. With many of bespoke finishes throughout there is an abundance of charm and character yet the house retains a wonderful family feel.

Set behind a deep gated carriage driveway the house has various outbuildings that may offer potential for a variety of uses. One is currently used as a gym with a shower and a decent size barn could potentially be converted to stables for equestrian use.

The upper floor enjoys unrivalled views over open countryside and the gardens themselves are secluded and private. The reception space is laid out to provide both formal and informal entertainment areas centred around a well appointed kitchen with an orangery providing the breakfast room. The first floor provides 5 bedrooms, 3 of which have en-suite facilities. In
addition there is a useful loft space which has further potential to add additional bedroom space (subject to planning).

Acreage: 3.18 Acres


From the M11/A414 junction 7, take the Hastingwood Road which is signposted Hastingwood on your left as you come off the roundabout. Take this road for approximately 4 miles where the road becomes Windhill continuing straight on until you reach a triangular junction with a signpost to the left saying Matching Green. Turn left here and The Dower House is the first house on your right hand side behind a set of white gates.
