Redcote occupies a very private setting approached over an 250' private gravelled drive from Beggar Hill, Fryerning.
Fryerning itself is renowned for having one of the most exclusive postcodes in Essex and is surrounded by a wealth of greenbelt farmland, ancient hedgerows and woodland and the area retains a distinctly rural atmosphere despite its convenient location between Ingatestone, Shenfield and Chelmsford, together with its excellent road and rail links into London.
The village has two public houses of note; The Cricketers and The Viper. The neighbouring village of Ingatestone just one mile away is the larger of the two villages and has a wide range of amenities, delicatessens and numerous shops, doctors surgery, library, post office and railway station on the mainline into London's Liverpool Street. Further south Shenfield has a fast and frequent rail service (from 25 mins) to Stratford and Liverpool Street and from 2018 will have a Cross Rail service to the West End and Heathrow Airport. Chelmsford to the north offers a cosmopolitan pedestrian shopping centre, a wide variety of restaurants and recreational facilities. There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools including the Anglo European at Ingatestone, Brentwood School, St. Martins at Hutton, King Edward grammar school and Chelmsford Country High school for girls, New Hall and Felsted all within driving distance.
Redcote is available for the first time in some 25 years and occupies a beautiful location on high ground towards the centre of its land which extends to about 6.78 acres. The house has distinctive elevations of red brick under a tiled roof relieved by hipped dormers. There are lovely views from all of the principal bedrooms and reception rooms and particularly to the west over open countryside and ancient woodlands. Internally the accommodation is versatile with rooms of note including elegant reception rooms with high ceilings and deep windows overlooking the property's gardens and grounds. There are 5 south facing first floor bedrooms including a generous master bedroom suite incorporating an en suite bathroom. Attached to the house is an integral double garage, single garage and stores which may provide for further accommodation or a self-contained annexe with alternations subject to planning.
Redcote is approached over a long gravelled drive passing through parkland fencing and mature borders to a parking area outside the house. Beyond are a range of outbuildings including a tractor store and tennis court with the majority of the land lying to the south comprising formal lawned gardens, screened by a bank of deciduous and evergreen trees separating some amenity land which has frontage to Beggar Hill. Redcote stands centrally within its plot in a private situation.
Mains water, electricity, gas central heating and private drainage.
