General information Simpsons Farm has an extremely attractive and secluded location being located at the end of a quarter mile private drive on high ground lying just to the south of the Stour Valley in attractive Essex countryside.

The house is situated on a partly moated site which dates back to the 15th Century and it has been the subject of meticulous restoration, refurbishment and extension to maintain all of the original character of the house with many attractive original features.

The attractive accommodation is approached from a front door leading in from a stone paved terrace which adjoins the large wide shingled parking and turning area which provides access to the extensive range of outbuildings.

The reception hallway leads through to the fine heavily timbered dining room with large inglenook fireplace and brick flooring. From the dining room there is access through to the heavily timbered drawing room with oak flooring, marble fireplace and a wealth of exposed timbering. The kitchen runs along the rear of the house and also has an attractive open fireplace within it and glazed double doors leading into the large double glazed conservatory with a lovely sunny aspect over the garden and access to the large paved south west facing terrace. At the far end of the house located in a more modern extension is the sitting room and the inner hallway with beautifully made modern oak staircase providing access to the first floor and which leads through to the large ground floor study which has views out across the paddocks and pond. Located off the entrance hall is access to the utility room and cloakroom.

The first floor is approached by two staircases. The master suite has a large well equipped bedroom with fitted wardrobe cupboards and bathroom with shower cubicle. There is a family bathroom and from the original landing in the property there is access to a beautifully timbered large second bedroom and heavily timbered third bedroom with arched fireplace and en suite shower room.

From the landing there is an original staircase which leads to the ground floor and a modern craftsman built oak staircase to the second floor which has two interconnecting rooms which could operate a child's suite or as a study and bedroom.

All of the rooms have a warmth and character reflecting the age of the original property but they have all been updated to meet modern requirements and the new extensions to the property have been carried out in a sympathetic way to the original structure.
