A south facing Grade II listed farmhouse with a lake and useful range of outbuildings in about 3.7 acres.


Maysland Farm is located to the south of the village of Great Easton and to the north of the market town of Great Dunmow which offers multiple shopping and sporting facilities and schooling for all ages, with private schools at Felsted and Bishop's Stortford. For the commuter there is access onto the A120 dual carriageway at Great Dunmow, giving access to the M11 motorway and Stansted Airport and there are mainline railway stations at Stansted Airport and Bishop's Stortford providing commuter services to Cambridge and Liverpool Street.


Maysland Farm is listed as being of architectural or historical interest Grade II and is believed to date from the 16th century. Constructed of timber frame with rendered elevations, the house provides good accommodation with many period features. On the ground floor a part-glazed door opens into the entrance hall, off which is a sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and inset wood burner, a dining room with views over the garden and the lake through a picture window, a study and a cloakroom/shower room. The hall opens into the kitchen/breakfast room, off which is a utility room leading into the garden room. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with an en suite shower room, three further bedrooms (one with an en suite WC) and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms overlook the garden, lake and farmland beyond.

Maysland Farm is approached over a gravel drive with parking to the front. The drive continues past a wood store to an office, adjacent to which are 18 covered individual cat pens and runs. To the east is a large single-storey barn (100 ft x 40 ft) (with possible development/planning potential) with two sets of double doors and a concrete hard standing floor, WC and workshop area. Between the outbuilding and the office is a large parking area for a number of cars. The mature garden has sweeping lawns around the house with a variety of mature trees, enclosed on three sides by a mature beech hedge. There is a south-facing terrace with flower borders and steps down to the main lawn area which opens out onto a small lake and gazebo. To the front of the lake is a potential paddock backing on to farmland.

Mains water, electricity and gas. Gas heating (Aga only). Private drainage.
