Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming period farmhouse set in a convenient position with a range of useful outbuildings and set in grounds of around 3.3 acres.


Wimbish is a collection of attractive hamlets located between the towns of Saffron Walden and Thaxted in North Essex. There is a pub, primary school, church and garden centre. The town of Saffron Walden is around 3 miles away with access to the mainline railway station to Liverpool Street and M11 close by (via Audley End or Newport Stations with connections to London). The area in general is well served with a good selection of both state and private schooling within reach.


Old Star House has been under one family's ownership for some time. Internally there is well balanced accommodation comprising of 3 reception areas and a modern Amdega conservatory opening onto the gardens. There is also a utility/boot room, ground floor shower room/WC and a fitted kitchen. Upstairs there are four reasonable sized bedrooms with a family bathroom.

To the rear of the property is a gravelled courtyard which is flanked on two sides by an L-shaped range of outbuildings comprising of a large vaulted barn, 3 stables, a double garage and various other store sheds. These buildings may offer further potential for conversion for use as ancillary accommodation (subject to planning permission). Beyond the house and outbuildings there is an additional paddock of some 2.2 acres, whereas the main house itself has delightful and mature gardens of around 1.1 acres.

Internally the house would benefit from some decorative improvements that we feel offers an ideal opportunity for a family buyer to create something very special for their own occupation.

Square Footage: 2,235 sq ft


From the town of Thaxted take the B184 heading towards Saffron Walden where you will see the driveway to Old Star House on your right hand side before the further hamlet of Howlett End. Coming through Saffron Walden from the north again take the B184 heading towards Thaxted passing through Howlett End and you will see the driveway for Old Star House on your left hand side just after "Fieldview B&B" on your right.
