Property description

Tenure: Freehold

What We Say at The Zoe Napier Group Taking everything into consideration, this property offers exceptional value for the size and quality of a fine, upstanding Country Home. The buyer also has the choice of as much or a little acreage as required, as the equestrian facilities can be split. However, the barns could also allow for someone to run a business from home stp. 

What the Owners Say The children have grown up and do their own thing, whilst we now split much of our time competing horses abroad - it's time to take on a new chapter in our lives. We have had great times here, spent way more than the guide price, so the incoming buyer will hopefully appreciate all that's on offer! 

History & Background An instantly stunning 5500 sq ft Country House set in a secluded oasis of up to 20 acres of beautiful grounds and meadows, accompanied by a highly appointed ancillary bungalow with the additional benefit of the equestrian facilities which are available by separate negotiation.

The property is steeped in history, formally documented as St Edwards, dating back to 1830, whilst originally forming part of The Pyrgo Palace Estate on the outer edge of the then sprawling Epping Forest. The property was later re-developed in 1830 as a Chapel with its elegant elevations, mellow brick, and ornate architectural detail. The house has more recently undergone extensive restoration, beautifully and lavishly appointed, undertaken by a professional interior designer, who cleverly discovered and revealed some original covered stone columns, whilst retaining all the essence of the original features, complemented by luxurious modern-day kitchens and bathrooms. In addition, a highly appointed one-bedroom, self-contained ancillary bungalow was built and discretely nestled within the grounds for excellent staff or family member accommodation.

The property is offered (in the initial advertised guide price), to include the bungalow and 9.4 acres (securing the glorious views). A further option, by separate negation, would be to purchase the excellent equestrian facilities, barns, stables, manege and 7.65 acres. There is also an additional 2.91-acre field which can further be made available. This field (greenbelt) adjoins the edge of the village and could offer longer term potential development value. Our client is willing to look at any sensible offer for either part or whole of the property and may further consider option agreements for the additional land.

Setting & Location The property is nestled within part wooded, extensive and mature grounds of just under 20 acres. The automatic gates provide access to a long sweeping drive where the entire premises sit in their own bowl of privately screened oasis, whilst open to the south across rolling countryside. The equestrian facilities have their own yard with parking and separate gated access, so can easily be separated out from the sale, if not required. However, these buildings might also suit a buyer looking for good storage arrangements with the opportunity of running a permissible business from home (a neighbouring former armyard has Commercial lets).

The remaining grounds offer mature gardens, an enclosed pond, a beautiful Victorian Garden with sunset views, south facing terraces, an orchard, rolling meadows and extensive areas for parking.

Tysea Hill is a popular area on the edge of Stapleford Abbotts, about 18 miles from central London, close to open countryside, for M11/M25 access, Brook Farm Equestrian Centre and Stapleford Abbotts Aerodrome/Flying School is just off the roundabout for Abridge. The more immediate location offers an eclectic mix of country homes/private residences, commercial enterprises, mobile homes, open countryside and the golf course.
