Property description

Tenure: Freehold

We are proud to offer one of Loughton’s finest residential properties for sale to the open market for the first time since 1966. This classic 1930s built six bedroom grand residence was imaginatively designed by renowned local architects Tooley and Foster. “Bordersmead” sits within substantial mature landscaped gardens on an elevated and commanding corner plot. The overall site offers approximately 0.98 acres (0.4 Hectares)

There is a wealth of planning history and a variety of proposals associated with the property including reference in 1964 that planning was obtained to build one property in the rear garden bordering Traps Hill and further reference to a potential plot in the “Rose Garden” adjacent to the main house on Church Lane, Loughton. The property has no local heritage listing although is subject to a number of tree preservation orders.

There also exists a recent EFDC Pre-Application response relating to a proposed Sheltered/Retirement living development which can be reviewed as case ref: EF/2021/ENQ/00416.

This spacious and prestigious property and grounds provide exceptional living space for family occupation with considerable potential for refurbishment of the existing property notwithstanding future development opportunities subject to planning consent.

It is rare that a fine house such as Bordersmead comes to the market with such a wide variety of options for improvement and development and all within immediate proximity to Central line stations and their respective shopping facilities.

The property offers excellent potential for multiple unit property development however we are instructed that no offers submitted that are subject to obtaining planning consent will be considered.

Viewings will be conducted strictly by appointment on allocated viewings days.
