Beautifully framed by a verdant patchwork of rolling countryside is the much sought after village of Moreton. It is a peaceful place that boasts a cosy pub and a well-regarded primary school, but its air of rural tranquillity belies its proximity to thriving towns such as Epping and Harlow, and indeed central London, which is just a half-hour train journey from nearby Harlow Town railway station. Moreton is also a very pretty place that's peppered with charming period homes, and one such home is Black Hall, a fine example of 15th century architecture that occupies a commanding position right in the heart of the village.

The house is thought to date back to the early part of the 15th century and it is a place that is steeped in history. It is considered to be the oldest building in the Moreton conservation area and it is said to have once been the meeting place of the Guild of All Saints, a religious guild quite typical of rural parishes in the 14th and 15th centuries. Features of the building itself appear to confirm this, as the elaborate mouldings of the internal timbers as well as external carvings - which sadly, over time have been covered up - "suggest a building of greater status than a small domestic 15th century house."

In more recent times the house has been sympathetically modernised and is now a very large and comfortable family home that is extremely conducive to modern family life and entertaining. The rooms are all generously proportioned, and a pale, neutral colour palette has been used throughout the interior, which not only creates a greater feeling of light and space, but also serves to enhance all of the beautiful period features. Many of the rooms are heavily beamed, there are a number of impressive original fireplaces, including a rather grand inglenook in the formal dining room, and exposed timbers are a feature of the house throughout.

This lovely home also boasts a very large and very attractive garden. There is an expansive patio terrace, ideal for alfresco entertaining, a vast lawn, and tucked away in a quiet corner is the swimming pool. The whole space is said to be very peaceful and private and because it backs onto nothing but open farmland, the views are outstanding.


Previously mentioned in The Times on 6th May 1963 when it was offered For Sale for the freehold interest for £12,950, Black Hall is now offered back to the open market at a slightly higher figure.

An attractive, historic property with a wealth of features, it nonetheless offers fabulous living for any discerning purchaser. The ground floor comprises of sitting room, dining room, snug, entrance hall, ground floor bathroom, kitchen and studio room. The first floor offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and further studio space.

The triple car garage has the benefit of a self-contained annexe adjoining with bedroom, kitchen/breakfast/sitting and bathroom. The pump room is also located in this building.

Externally is the garden with the benefit of an enclosed kidney shaped swimming pool. There is ample parking to complement the triple car garage.

Whilst the fabulous location, so convenient for road and rail access, is undisputed, you would be forgiven for thinking you are living miles away, as the property has views over open farmland and you would never think you are less than 30 miles from the City of London, or that Stansted airport is only 12 miles away for access to Europes cities and beyond.
