Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding Victorian house situated in a premier location offering sumptuous accommodation, coupled with a wonderful garden and detached double garage plus home office.


The Chestnuts is a magnificent Victorian house offering outstanding accommodation arranged over two floors with an array of delightful period features throughout. The house has been sympathetically extended and renovated from top to bottom by the current owners to provide an exceptional family home with a lovely feeling of space and light. There is underfloor heating to the tiled areas on the ground floor and 'School' style radiators. The house is complemented by one of the widest plots with a very deep frontage that incorporates a sweeping carriage driveway and a large rear sunny west facing garden. There is potential to extend further, subject to planning consent.

The ground floor comprises a welcoming entrance hall with attractive floor tiles and a fine stained glass front door. There are three elegant reception rooms with period features typical of houses from the era including tall ceilings, fireplaces and large windows which flood the rooms with natural light. There is a useful study and a guest cloakroom. Perhaps the standout room in the house is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room which perfectly reflects modern living. There are high quality bespoke cupboards, granite worktops and integrated appliances, space in the middle for a large table and chairs, tiled floor and plenty of windows to the rear overlooking the garden. Leading from the kitchen is a utility room and an exquisite orangery which provides a perfect additional reception room in which to enjoy the garden.

The first floor comprises a main bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom, a second bedroom suite with bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Each bedroom and bathroom has been finished to the highest standards and follows the authentic period feel of the rest of the house including fireplaces to three of the bedrooms and bespoke wardrobes.

The house occupies a wide west facing symmetrical plot extending to about 0.42 an acre. There is a gravel carriage driveway with a landscaped lawn and mature flowering borders. The detached double garage also benefits from a large loft storage area and a useful office accessed from the rear and is an ideal place to work from or to use as a gym. There is wide double gated access either side of the house to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with flowering borders featuring a variety of trees, shrubs and plants. The paved sun terrace spans the width of the plot and provides a wonderful secluded place to sit and enjoy the garden.


Theydon Bois is a popular village with a good range of local amenities including a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and Central Line tube station. There is a typical village green complete with duck pond, a golf course and access into Epping Forest. Piercing Hill contains some of the village's finest houses and The Chestnuts is situated opposite Theydon Bois Golf Club and lies within 0.8 mile of the tube station and shops. There are several well regarded local state and private schools, particularly Theydon Bois Primary School, and access to M11 & M25 junctions which are within a few miles.
