Description

HELP TO BUY AVAILABLE

Dating from the 1700s, Kingsmoor House began life as a gentleman’s residence two storeys high by three windows wide. The first half of the 19th Century saw extensive additions which more than doubled the size of the building and a front porch was added later that century.

Ownership of the house passed from the Risdens in the 18th Century, then to the Houblons and finally to the Todhunters, a worthy and respected family of Great Parndon. Kingsmoor House is today protected by a Grade II* listing and, under the watchful eye of English Heritage, has undergone a skilful restoration and conversion into nine luxury apartments.

This historic building is experiencing a renaissance that will sympathetically restore and retain the important architectural features including the magnificent bow windows, the colonnaded porch, the elegant high ceilings and many of the original cornices and mouldings. It will be eminently placed to remain a feature of the region’s architectural heritage for many generations to come.

The building’s original fabric has influenced the design approach in the choice of materials, the spatial arrangements and the retention of period details. The introduction of contemporary features is sensitively balanced within the classic context to give rise to interiors that are both stylish and refined.


In the desirable setting of North Essex

One of the most desirable of the Home Counties, Essex lies in prime commuter belt territory and boasts glorious countryside, traditional market towns, a great mix of architecture and miles of waterways and canals.

Kingsmoor lies to the south of Harlow yet is ideally placed to enjoy the many amenities of Bishop’s Stortford. Immediately south of Kingsmoor is the vast Epping Forest, 5,900 acres of ancient woodland, peppered by more than 100 ponds and lakes. To the west is the Lee Valley with nature reserves, sports and outdoor activities, water parks, gardens and a host of events designed to engage and entertain all the family.

The local area is punctuated by beautiful outside spaces such as the Moorhen Marina, the Gibberd Garden and Parndon Mill on the River Stort, a workspace for artists and designers with a gallery and classes. There is a fine selection of restaurants and bars that include Coho, a riverside brasserie and Marco’s Italian in Roydon Marina Village. Golf is the king of the local sports with Canons Brook Golf Club and Nazeing Golf Course both within easy reach.

Local shopping can be found at the Water Gardens or the Harvey Shopping Centres as well as Jackson Square at nearby Bishop’s Stortford or Westfield Stratford City, around 30 minutes away by car.

Connections

Kingsmoor House lies no more than 6 miles from the A10, the M11 and the M25 so the drive south to London or north to Cambridge. The M25 orbital offers a choice of approaches to the capital, so wherever you are headed, you’ll discover it’s achievable.

Many local residents take advantage of the fast rail links from Harlow Town Station into London’s Liverpool Street with a journey time of around half an hour. The railway also provides for local journeys with services to Bishops Stortford as well as Tottenham Hale on the outskirts of London or north to Cambridge.

Stansted Airport is the obvious departure point for national or international flights and is less than a 20-minute trip on the train or around half an hour by car via the M11. London City Airport is also highly accessible with a road journey time of approximately 45 minutes.
