An attractive period house in a beautiful stretch of countryside


Elm Cottage is situated in a beautiful rural hamlet on a quiet country lane. Willingale village is close by and the villages of Blackmore, Fyfield and Roxwell provide local shopping facilities with traditional pubs and eateries. The property is situated between Chipping Ongar and Chelmsford, both providing a good range of shopping facilities and schools for all ages. The mainline station at Chelmsford provides a rail service into Liverpool Street (approximately 36 minutes), whilst Epping to the west lies just over 12 miles away and has an underground service into London. The countryside surrounding the property offers some of the best cycling, bridle and footpaths in Essex.


Elm Cottage, which is not listed, is early Victorian and has been in the same ownership for over 40 years. A central hallway with an attractive staircase separates the drawing room and dining room, both of which have southerly aspects and overlook farmland. At the rear of the house is a cosy sitting room overlooking the rear gardens. Opposite is a fitted kitchen with Shaker style cream units. At the rear of the property is a large laundry room finished with a pamment tiled floor, which would make a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the rear gardens. There is a workshop, ground floor cloakroom and larder accessed directly from the laundry room and the rear hallway is finished with a pamment tiled floor. The first floor landing is lit by a deep south-facing sash window which frames a lovely view of the open countryside. There are five bedrooms, the master bedroom having dual aspect windows and an en suite bathroom. The remaining four bedrooms all have long views over the adjoining countryside and are serviced by a family bathroom and separate WC.

The house is approached through timber double gates to a gravel drive passing the side of the house, which leads to a parking area and single-storey stabling incorporating garaging, with loft above. There are formal gardens with frontage to Silver Lane which are planted with an abundance of trees and shrubs providing all-year colour and interest. A mature hedge separates the gardens and grounds to the rear, which adjoin open farmland. There is an orchard, small vegetable garden and an extensive area of lawns surrounded by mature hedging.

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

Strictly by prior appointment with the sole agents Savills.

Square Footage: 2,484 sq ft
