Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A large versatile house in glorious landscaped gardens and parkland.


Fryerning Court is a merger of two properties: Fryerning Court and Fryerning Cottage, which are thoughtfully linked with a glazed garden room. The property is discreetly located behind a wall of mature trees approached through a horseshoe driveway.

Fryerning Court is approached over a fine reception hall overlooked by a galleried landing and lit by six full-height glazed doors which open onto a rear terrace. At the front of the property is a fitted home office overlooking the front gardens with a door to the gardens at the side of the house. On the opposite side of the hall lies a good sized family room with deep windows overlooking the front gardens and glazed doors opening into the kitchen. A lovely, light sitting room is located at the rear of the house with windows and doors onto the formal gardens and incorporates a raised, modern fireplace. The kitchen has been cleverly designed with a minimalist, contemporary feel. Extensive storage is provided behind a wall of gloss-fronted units with contrasting base units finished in walnut with polished granite tops, which contrast with the white stone flooring. There is a Miele integrated oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge. Six full-height windows and double doors open onto a garden terrace, ideal for al fresco dining.

A glazed garden room, 33.2’ x 17.5’, provides a link into a former cottage providing versatile space, which includes a library, large utility room, gym, ground floor shower and cloakroom and a purpose built kitchen for al fresco dining together with two first floor bedrooms, one with its own en suite

On the first floor of the principal house there is a lovely, light-filled landing overlooking the gardens, grounds and countryside beyond. The principal bedroom suite occupies the whole of the south wing of the house providing a good sized bedroom, 22.10’ x 14.3’, with double doors onto a delightful balcony overlooking the property’s grounds. A large en suite bathroom with adjoining dressing room is accessed directly from the bedroom. There are three further double bedrooms, two with independent en suites, and a fourth bedroom with a Jack and Jill facility.

The gardens to the front of the house are predominantly lawned, bordered by a driveway and planted with mature trees providing privacy from the lane. At the rear of the house, which enjoys a south and south-easterly aspect, is a series of terraces which immediately adjoin the formal gardens. The gardens are principally divided into three areas. The first, immediately behind the cottage, is a shaded woodland glade incorporating a sunken water feature and established shrub borders. The garden is discreetly positioned with night-time lighting creating a lovely atmospheric area. Behind the principal house is a substantial terrace with inset lighting planted with box hedging and a variety of evergreen and deciduous specimen shrubs and trees providing lovely colour tones and textures. To the south is a very private area of garden incorporating an in-ground heated swimming pool surrounded by paving and a large terrace, which joins onto a loggia designed in the theme of a Chinese tea house featuring a semi-vaulted, part-glazed roof and glazed sliding walls. Behind is the filtration unit for the pool. A tennis court stands on the far southern boundary, hard-surfaced and enclosed by full-height fencing. The majority of the land lies to the south and south east, an extensive area of parkland planted with a variety of mature evergreen trees. The area also includes two natural ponds and a collection of former stables.

Services: Gas, electricity and drainage.

Fryerning 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 and its excellent rail and road links into London. Crossrail will soon be available from Shenfield providing a service to London’s West End and Heathrow Airport.

Fryerning itself is renowned for having one of the most exclusive postcodes in Essex and boasts two public houses of note: The Cricketers and The Viper. Neighbouring Ingatestone, just one mile away, is the larger of the two villages and has a wide range of amenities including numerous shops, a doctors surgery, library, post office and a railway station on the main line into Stratford and London Liverpool Street. Chelmsford city to the north offers a cosmopolitan pedestrian shopping centre including the new Bond Street area containing John Lewis and many other branded shops and restaurants, and a wide variety of recreational facilities. There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools including Anglo European School, Brentwood School, St Martin’s, King Edward Grammar School, Chelmsford County High School for Girls, New Hall and Felsted, all within driving distance.
