Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully refurbished Grade II listed period farmhouse in a semi-rural situation.


Larks is located to the south of Bannister Green, a hamlet within the parish of Felsted. Felsted provides local amenities, including Felsted public and preparatory schools, as well as a primary school. For the commuter there are mainline train stations to Liverpool Street from Chelmsford, Braintree, Bishop's Stortford and Stansted Airport, and there is access onto the A120 dual carriageway which links with the M11 and Stansted Airport to the west.


Larks was converted into a house in the 16th century. Constructed of part-exposed timber frame and brick under a tiled roof, the house is listed as being of architectural or historical interest Grade II and has been subject to an extensive programme of refurbishment. Work has included the repair of the oak parquet floors, redecoration throughout, the laying of a new sandstone floor at the rear of the house, new solid oak doors, the checking of all existing wiring and plumbing, new bespoke cabinets and shelving in the study, the fitting of a new kitchen including Cimstone quartz worktops and a butler sink, and the fitting of quality bathrooms, showers and cloakrooms. The house now provides immaculate accommodation and rooms of particular note are the drawing room separated by a decorative oak screen from the study, the newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and the master bedroom with its en suite bathroom. Planning permission was granted in September 2009 for a two storey and single storey rear extension to include a further bedroom with en suite but this has since lapsed.

Larks is approached over a gravel drive leading to a parking area for a number of cars. Adjacent to the parking area is a log store and a large modern weatherboard and tiled barn comprising a garage and workshop with an open-tread staircase to the first floor, presently used for storage. The garden to the front is laid to lawn incorporating a large pond, a number of trees including maple, willow and horse chestnut, enclosed on three sides by high hedges. A Yorkstone terrace to the rear of the house opens out into the delightful main garden laid to lawn with established borders and a summer house. To one side is a small shed and set behind a high evergreen hedge is an all-weather fenced tennis court enclosed by high hedges. Access through a five-bar gate from the garden leads into the fenced paddock bisected by an avenue of lime trees.

Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. Oil fired heating.

Strictly by prior appointment with the sole agents Savills.

Square Footage: 2,580 sq ft
Acreage: 1.85 Acres
