Full descriptionStanstead Lodge is a handsome Grade II Listed house, dating from the mid 17th Century set within 17 acres of exceptional parkland complemented by a very fine garden with meadows, lakes, tennis court and numerous outbuildings.
Location - Stanstead Lodge is situated amongst open countryside set on the edge of the former Briggens Hall Estate and adjoining the golf club. The house is within half a mile of Roydon village, which adjoins the River Stort and enjoys a selection of shopping and recreational facilities. There is a footpath through the property's land leading through the Briggens Estate to Roydon station, which takes less than fifteen minutes on foot. The station has regular services to Cambridge and London (Liverpool Street approx 30 minutes).
Roydon lies almost equidistant between Hoddesdon and Harlow, which offer a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and recreational amenities including mainline station, golf courses etc. There is a wide range of schooling, both public and private, the most prominent Haileybury and Bishops Stortford College. The A414 is within a few minutes drive and provides access to the east to Harlow and the M11 (junction 7) and to the west to the A10, London, M25 (about 12 miles) and Cambridge. There are numerous attractive villages in the area including Stanstead Abbotts, Great Amwell and Much Hadham.
There is a footpath through the property's land leading through the Briggens Estate to Roydon station, which is about a mile distant and we consider it to be within walking distance.
