Rivenhall Place 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.

HISTORY

Rivenhall Place 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.

LOCATION

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

Witham is 3 miles to the south, with its shopping centre and rail station with direct access to London Liverpool Street (44 minutes). There is also good access to the A12 (3 miles), with Chelmsford and Colchester, 12 miles away respectively. Both provide comprehensive educational, recreational and shopping facilities.

There are excellent schools in both the state and private sectors, including Felsted, New Hall (Chelmsford), St Mary's and Holmwood House in Colchester complemented in the state sector by the strongly performing Grammar Schools for both sexes in both Chelmsford and Colchester.

There is a choice of supermarkets in Colchester including Waitrose, Sainsbury's at the Tollgate Shopping Centre at Stanway and The Food Company Store at Marks Tey. Nearby Witham and Braintree offer further choice of supermarkets.

Stansted Airport, with its increasing range of national and international destinations, is within easy reach (22 miles). There are excellent walking and riding opportunities in the surrounding countryside, and, to the south, the river and marshland walks of the Blackwater Estuary popular with ornithologists.

The Blackwater is also home to a number of marinas and sailing clubs, notably at Tollesbury and West Mersea. Local golf courses include Braxted Park, Braintree Golf Club at Stisted, Benton Hall Golf and Country Club at Wickham Bishops and the nearby Rivenhall Oaks Golf Club.
