The property has been comprehensively renovated to provide exceptional entertaining space and has been re-modelled and refurbished by the current owners ensuring that its historic fabric has been conserved and every modern convenience incorporated.

The property is mainly of Georgian construction added on to an existing Tudor house. The obvious Georgian features are the east and south elevation, the porch and the conformation of the main reception rooms. From the north and west aspects of the side and back of the house many of the external Tudor features can be seen such as the octagonal chimneys, the last remaining mullion window and the gables.

Internally of interest are the two staircases. The Main staircase is particularly fine. It was built for Thomas Western, according to the Listing and Pevsner's authoritative volume ‘The Buildings of England – Essex Edition', circa 1700. The old original staircase, now the back staircase, has a central newel post – a ship's mast – running from the bottom to the top of the house. The house contains a considerable quantity of re-set 16th and 17th Century panelling which was in the original Tudor building.

The property stands surrounded by its own parkland setting at the end of a 500 yard long drive, which crosses the lakes.


Rivenhall village 1.5 miles, Access A12 – 3 miles, Witham 3 miles (London Liverpool Street 44 minutes), Chelmsford 14 miles, Colchester 14 miles, Stansted Airport 22 miles. All distances and times are approximate.
