Tenure: Share of Freehold

This thoughtful split level conversion of a gothic mansion set in beautiful grounds and perfect for commuting, offers spacious and flexible living accommodation.


Gilston Park House is set within 13 acres of communal grounds
with tennis courts and lake and is located within moments of
the hubs of Sawbridgeworth and Harlow with their selection of
shops, schools, travel and transport facilities including access to
London via Harlow Town station giving a convenient commute of
around 30 minutes to London's Liverpool Street.


Retaining the proportions and grandeur of the 19th century
baronial mansion that this property forms a part of, the
property retains much of the original character yet offers
thoughtfully laid out accommodation with the convenience
of the exterior aspect and gardens being maintained by a
management company.

Gilston Park House was constructed on behalf of the shipping
merchant John Hodgson in around 1852. Now Grade II*
listed this stunning English Gothic mansion was converted
to separate residences some years ago. Collectively these
properties enjoy use of 13 acres of communal grounds with a
mix of parkland, lake and formal gardens which also include
two tennis courts.

The apartment offers elegant and stylish accommodation
arranged over two floors. The central entrance hall provides
access to the kitchen/breakfast room, master bedroom and
sitting room. A separate staircase from the entrance hall
leads to the lower ground floor where the accommodation
comprises a utility room, study and cloakroom. A further
bedroom can be accessed via the sitting room which has a
deep bay window to the side aspect and a spiral staircase
leading downstairs to an en suite bathroom with separate
shower. The master bedroom features stairs leading to a
mezzanine floor and also has stairs leading to the lower level
ground floor bathroom with separate shower. The enormous
sitting room also enjoys a deep bay window to the side aspect
with views across the gardens.

Square Footage: 3,368 sq ft
