Tenure: Freehold

What we say at the Zoe Napier Group This really is a rare and unique development opportunity for those who wish to build their own family home. The plot is located within the traditional farmyard to its adjacent 16th Century farmhouse, where there are two existing owner-occupied barns with plans passed for a third plot in this picturesque and relaxed setting. A true Gem of a find for the right buyers. 

What the owners Say: We live on this farm and it's idyllic, so far that the farmhouse and barns are surrounded by our own enviable rolling farmland, down a no through road yet literally about 10/15 minutes' drive from Epping Station. Our farm won conservation of the year award back in the 80's and there has been very little change over the past 100 years. We just hope that the buyers of the plot, who will become our immediate neighbours, mutually enjoy the tranquillity, peace and quiet here.  

The Facts Plans are passed for a brand new 250 meter squared (2690 sq ft) one and a half storey barn style house which will complement the existing barns on site with specifications to include both hand clay and peg tiled roofing with an external finish of black weatherboard or equivalent low maintenance composite weatherboard. The property will be offered with just shy of a half-acre plot (0.45 of an acre) which will benefit from part of a natural pond to the rear with open farmland beyond.

Our clients resides in the adjacent farmhouse and the two barns already built/converted are owner occupied. They are keen to meet any prospective purchasers, as the new build must be completed within 12 to 18 months (opposed to years as an ongoing project), since all will be neighbours with the requirement for reciprocal respect to the peace and quiet already enjoyed from the handful of residents in the immediate community.
 

Setting & Location The farmstead is recognised as one of the oldest buildings in Clatterford End, originally being the only farm with its traditional outbuildings at the end of Coleman's Lane - a no through road. The lane continues into an ancient Roman bridle path for access into the countryside. This plot is the last of three barn style dwellings, which will become the fifth property down the lane, all of which is surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside.

The farm were proud winners for 'Conservation of the Year' back in 1980's and little has changed in terms of the surrounding hedgerows and field sizes over the last 100 years. The book cover to the History of Epping Forest also features the historic 500-year-old Oak Tree located in the field opposite, which can be accessed by the public.

This idyllic setting brings the commuter to countryside, possibly one of the last unspoilt parts of Essex Countryside in the area, which is within 10/15 minutes' drive (5.3 miles) of Epping central Line Station.

Clatterford End, Toot Hill, Near Ongar lies approximately 2.4 miles (by road) east of Ongar and one mile from Toot Hill where there is a village school, Golf Course and the Green Man pub/restaurant.
