Full description

Believed to date back to the late nineteenth century and designed by the well-known local
architect, George Sherrin, Longholt offers
contemporary and versatile accommodation
arranged over two floors within walking distance
to the extensive local shopping facilities that
Ingatestone has to offer. The entrance hall is approached via a covered porch and has wooden flooring which flows continuously to the main reception rooms and a door to the rear giving access to the garden. To the left a pair of double doors is the family room which has a working fireplace and which leads through to a magnificent kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of bespoke walnut kitchen units with corian surfaces and has a range of miele appliances including a steam oven and warming draw, two dishwashers, ovens and integrated fridge freezers. Towards the centre of the room is a fitted breakfast bar above which is a lantern ceiling light which floods the room with natural light and the remainder of the room opens into an orangery providing extensive views across the gardens to the rear.

Immediately off the kitchen is the utility room well fitted with a range of storage units. To the right of the entrance hall, and approached by double opening doors, is a family room with views to the rear and the entrance hall continues through to the drawing room which has sweeping bay windows to one side and two more windows either side of a central fireplace. Off the sitting room a door leads into the study where again a large bay window provides views to the front aspect.

The landing has windows to the front aspect and provides access to all of the first floor rooms. To the right hand side of the landing is the master suite which comprises bedroom with luxury en-suite bathroom and fully fitted dressing area. The remaining four bedrooms all have windows to the rear aspect providing views across the attractive gardens, bedroom two has an en-suite shower room and there is also a family bathroom.

Longholt is located on the outskirts of the village of Ingatestone and close to the local railway station which has direct rail connection to London Liverpool Street with an average journey time of approximately 25 minutes.

Surrounded by farmland, the property occupies an enviable semi-rural position yet remains within easy reach of the City of Chelmsford and the town of Brentwood with their comprehensive range of entertainment, shopping and transport facilities. Excellent education facilities can be found both within Chelmsford, Brentwood and Ingatestone. These include the Brentwood School, Kind Edward VI Grammar School, and County High School for Girls, the Anglo- European School, The Felsted Schools and New Hall.

Stansted Airport can be found approximately
23 miles to the northeast catering for domestic
flights and international destinations beyond.

To the front of the property Longholt has a private shingle drive which extends to the side and provides parking for several vehicles. To the left hand boundary there is a brick built double garage with adjacent storage room. Wrought iron gates lead to the rear garden which has a large paved patio adjacent to the property with retaining wall and steps leading down to the lawns. The garden to the rear is predominately divided into two sections, with the main part being an impressive lawn accessed from the patio. From the lawn a central garden arch leads to a paved path, either side of which are well tended shrubs and hedges. In all we believe the grounds extend to approximately 0.8 acres.
