Property description

An attractive late Victorian former farmhouse with integrated annex accommodation, entertainment barn, bespoke indoor swimming pool complex, detached five door garage facilities with luxury guest quarters above, all set in beautiful secluded grounds of approximately 3 acres. Planning permission granted to further extend the main dwelling.

Property In Brief - Believed to be of late Victorian origins, Cottesmore stands in established gardens and grounds of approximately 3 acres and is located approximately within 27 miles of central London. This delightful five/six bedroom country residence is situated towards the outskirts of Roydon, a quintessential English village complete with village green on the Essex/Hertfordshire county borders, the perfect location for commuting by road or rail.
Sitting unassumingly behind walled and gated gardens, this is a very special home of individual style and personality. The current owners have carried out many improvements over the years and have created a warm and comfortable family home, truly designed for entertaining on a grand scale.
There is an excellent and varied range of outbuildings including: detached five door garaging with studio/guest quarters above, a detached barn/entertainment room and bar and a state of the art indoor pool complex with several doors opening out to provide a seamless connection to the terrace and a vista over the beautiful gardens.

The accommodation radiates from a central vestibule with a glass roof lantern leading to spacious and well-proportioned rooms. Of particular note is the beautiful oak wood panelling to the vestibule, hall, stairs and landing, the dining room and study. Oak floors complement the majority of the principle rooms together with solid oak doors and deep cornicing . Beautiful ornate fireplaces feature throughout.
To the ground floor there are two principle reception rooms, a study and farmhouse kitchen with a door to the garden . Off an inner lobby there is integrated annex accommodation offering a double bedroom, sitting room, small kitchen and a cloakroom.
The first floor hosts the master bedroom with a deep, three window bay providing delightful views across the surrounding countryside. Four further double bedrooms, one with a large walk-in en-suite dressing room and two well appointed bathrooms complete this floor.

Planning Permission - Permission has been granted to extend the main dwelling. Plans available on request or can be viewed on Epping Forest Council planning department website: REF: EPF/3309/18

Grounds And Outbuildings - Within the extensive grounds is a tremendous entertainment barn with its own bar service area and spacious areas to relax or 'dance the night away'.
The superb bespoke indoor swimming pool complex boasts a jacuzzi, changing facilities, steam room, tanning booth and bar/kitchen area has doors that open up on two sides to the gardens and second outdoor pool and terrace.
The generous five door thatched garage facility is predominately open plan to the ground floor enabling the housing of several vehicles.
Guests can choose to stay in the main house or to have their own self-contained accommodation in the quarters above the garage which is luxuriously appointed and open plan: Bedroom, living room, fitted kitchen and shower room.
The formal gardens are landscaped and surround the main house offering different areas to enjoy al-fresco dining or just to sit and relax taking in the interesting slate monoliths and ornamental waterfall linking to the koi carp pond.
Sweeping lawns are studded by a wide variety of mature and specimen trees, both coniferous and deciduous. The side garden offers an enclosed children's play area complete with play equipment. This is a wonderful place for children, with so much outside space youngsters can just go off and safely explore.

On a personal note….

On Monday 25th October 1999, a life long ambition came true for me, as Oliver Minton Estate Agents opened for business in Stanstead Abbotts. I started my career in estate agency 14 years ago and stood down as Branch Manager of the Ware branch of Halifax Property Services in August 1999, in order to devote my time to the setting up of the new business.

After 4 highly successful years in Stanstead Abbotts as the first specialist village-based local estate
