Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A truly outstanding 16th century Grade II listed house set in beautiful gardens and grounds in the prestigious location of Rolls Park, Chigwell.

Location

For centuries Rolls Park was known as Chigwell’s most famous building with a rich heritage among its former owners and visitors. Built in the 17th century, the stately home was best known as the family seat of the Harvey family who owned it for many generations.

Among their famous members was Dr William Harvey who discovered the circulation of the blood in 1628. Perhaps the most famous occupant of the home was Admiral Sir Eliab Harvey who fought alongside Admiral Nelson as one of the key figures in the Battle of Trafalgar.

All that remains of the site today is the Stables, a Cottage and the Orangery, which was rebuilt, although the area of the estate, near the end of Chigwell High Road, is still known as Rolls Park Corner.

Chigwell contains some of the area's finest properties and the Stables is ideally located for the local amenities including a comprehensive selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Transport links into London are excellent with a central line tube station situated 1.3 miles away. There are several well regarded state and private schools locally with Chigwell private school situated only 0.7 miles away. There are a good selection of leisure facilities nearby including golf clubs and sports centres.

Access to the M11 junction 5 is 0.4 miles away and M25 junction 26 is 4.3 miles away.

Description

The former stable block of Rolls Park is now something of a masterpiece. The current owners have spent considerable time and effort sourcing and choosing the stylish and ‘in keeping’ fixtures and fittings found throughout the home.

The accommodation is arranged over two spacious floors and is in excess of 6000 square feet. Once inside the property you are treated to an impressive foyer with stone flooring, wood paneling cast iron radiators, log burner, stunning feature staircase and double height ceilings allowing for a dramatic light fixture to showcase and impress your would be guests. Moving around the ground floor in a clockwise direction you walk down the wood paneled hallway and first reach the study room. This is finished with wood paneling to the walls and ornate parquet flooring with bespoke built in storage, bookcase and cast iron radiators. The dining room is next finished with original parquet flooring, cast iron radiators, original exposed structural timbers, wood paneled walls and four large windows flooding the space with an abundance of natural light. There is also a bar area and to really impress your guests, not to mention store your much loved wine collection there is an underground spiral wine cellar with an electrically operated glass door. Should this fail to impress then the original working mechanism to the bell tower clock which sits proudly in the dining room should certainly do the job.

As you continue there is a staircase that leads to the 1st floor accommodation, an external door leading to the courtyard, a guest cloak room with Chadder & Co fittings, snug room featuring the stunning and original parquet flooring and utility room with French doors to the patio and a storage cupboard housing the media hub.

Without question one of the main rooms of any house is the kitchen diner which becomes the epicenter providing a pleasurable and sociable space for a modern day family. The space is bright, open and airy with an abundance of glass in the orangery allowing natural light in. Three sets of French doors provide access to the patio and garden beyond.

Concluding the ground floor and before you are back in the foyer is a further guest cloakroom fully fitted with Chadder and Co and wood paneled closet useful for shoes and coats.

Taking the impressive staircase from the foyer you reach the landing of the first floor. From here its certainly worth looking back and down to the foyer area to take in and appreciate its grandeur.
