Goldens Farm is an impressive Grade II listed late 16th Century oak timber framed farmhouse which has been maintained to a particularly high standard by the current owners. The property enjoys a favourable location on the periphery of this sought after North Essex village and has charming field views to the rear and enjoys grounds of approximately 2.5 acres sts.

A glazed oak door leads to an attractive reception hall which has a tiled floor, bespoke bookcases and panelled oak concertina doors which access the conservatory. Directly accessed via a panelled solid oak door from the reception hall is the dining room which is a charming room that displays an impressive oak frame to the walls and ceiling and has a tiled floor and benefits from a dual aspect to the front and side gardens. There is a large red brick chimney breast providing a focal point adjacent to which is a further panelled solid oak door accessing the sitting room. This charming room has an impressive oak frame on display throughout and an attractive inglenook fireplace with detailed pargetting above the bressumer. There is a storage cupboard to the side of the fireplace and a glazed oak door gives access to the front gardens.

A ledge and board door with linen fold carving leads to the delightful kitchen/breakfast room which has an impressive oak frame on display and is extensively fitted with a range of shaker style units and benefits from a white enamel Aga, 'Neff' oven and grill with hob and extractor hood over. There is detailed and extensive splashbacks and a quarry tiled floor. A square arch leads to the breakfast room which has a glazed door to the side garden. A further linen fold door leads to a spacious utility/cloakroom which has a water softener and extensive storage.

The later addition of the conservatory joins the former bake house to the principal residence and this has been carried out with some style and skill. The conservatory has delightful gothic features to the windows, fluted columns, an impressive vaulted ceiling and benefits from tiled flooring and delightful views to the grounds and countryside beyond. There is a practical bar area between the conservatory and the former bake house which has a tiled work surface and carved oak doors to bespoke cupboards beneath.

The former bake house is a delightful room with a fully vaulted ceiling, glazed oak French doors to the rear garden and attractive tiled flooring. There is an impressive red brick chimney breast with oak bressumer and an ornate cast iron wood burning stove.

A panelled solid oak door leads to a well appointed cloak/shower room which has a fully tiled shower cubicle, wash hand basin set within a vanity unit and a matching w.c. Stairs from the bake house rise to a first floor mezzanine which is used as a fourth bedroom providing a charming area with exposed oak frame work to the walls and ceiling.

Stairs rise from the drawing room to a large landing which has an impressive oak frame on display throughout and some charming cast iron windows with their original latches.

An oak ledge and board door accesses the principal suite which has a beautiful oak frame on display, a range of bespoke wardrobes and a window giving views to the gardens. A square arch opens to a dressing area and a dormer window gives views to the grounds. Beyond this, a solid oak panelled door leads to an impressive en-suite bath/shower room which has a large centrally mounted and circular 'Hansgro' shower unit, oval ended bath set within a plinth, his and hers wash hand basins within a marble surface which is flanked by extensive storage and shelving and there is oak flooring.

Goldens Farm is accessed via a pair of five bar gates which lead to an extensive gravel drive providing parking for numerous vehicles and also provides access for the impressive and extensive workshop/garage complex.

The gardens at Goldens Farm are an absolute delight and principally benefit from a South and Westerly aspect enabling them to take advantage of the all day sun and evening sunset. Immediately to the rear of the property and accessed via the bake house is a charming garden with densely stocked herbaceous borders that provide year round privacy. There is a York stone terrace positioned to take advantage of the all day sun featuring a well and this is flanked by another herbaceous border which is stocked with a variety of perennials and shrubs to provide interest and colour. Adjacent to this terrace is a manicured area of formal garden which is delineated by post and rail fencing, within which are a number of clipped shrubs and trees to provide topiary, and these consist of copper beech and an attractive six trunk specimen tree which provides a shaded area flanked by box hedging.

To the side of the property and accessed via the kitchen/breakfast room is a further terrace which is positioned to take advantage of the morning sun and this has red brick walling to one side and further densely stocked herbaceous borders. The remainder of the grounds comprise large expanses of lawn which are interspersed with a variety of trees to include apple, fir, maple and a clump of silver birch trees which lead to a small spinney. A large greenhouse is adjacent to a fruit cage and beyond are further expanses of lawn that directly abut open farmland.

There is a truly impressive workshop/office building which would be suitable for a variety of purposes and would be appropriate for someone wishing to run a business from home or house a classic car collection. There is a large quadruple garage with two sets of roller shutter doors adjacent to which is a workshop/storage building which has a separate cloakroom. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a further workshop/machine room and a large storage room. The first floor is accessed via a lobby and this provides perfect office space adjacent to which is a large landing with two storage cupboards. The workshop/garage building could readily convert to ancillary accommodation if required subject to the necessary consents.

It would be fair to say that Goldens Farm is an outstanding property which has been particularly well cared for and blends the perfect balance of character and charm whilst being functional for modern day living. In all about 2.5 acres sts.
