A beautifully located period house with gardens and land, 1.5 miles from Ingtestone station


Lightoaks Cottage is situated in the heart of this beautiful village. The historic village of Ingatestone is a few minutes' drive providing an excellent range of village shops, traditional pubs and a selection of restaurants. Also within Ingatestone village is the renowned Anglo European School together with a mainline rail service to London. Further south lie the towns of Shenfield and Brentwood, which are due to have the Crossrail rail service from 2018/2019 and both provide a good range of shops, educational and recreational facilities.


On the ground floor the principal reception room provides a large and versatile space, 24.6 ft x 16 ft, which features French double doors with fitted shutters opening onto the side gardens. The room features oak flooring with underfloor heating, a high ceiling and has been finished with a contemporary theme. At the front of the house lies the bespoke fitted kitchen finished with Shaker-style units and granite working surfaces. Adjoining is a dual-aspect dining room, 16 ft x 12 ft. The first floor provides a large master bedroom suite with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms, cloakroom and bathroom.

An electronically-operated, five-bar timber gate opens into a long drive passing the side of the house and leading to a courtyard and parking area at the side of the garaging and games room.

Adjacent to the garaging is a Victorian-style greenhouse which stands next to the formal part-walled gardens predominantly lawned with deep herbaceous borders and island beds partly enclosed by copper beech hedging. At the end of this garden area a high brick wall separates a further garden approached via a metal gate. Part of the garden has been designed with topiary hedging and lavender separated by gravel pathways and enclosed by copper beech hedging. A five-bar gate set on post and rail fencing separates the area of land, extending to about 2.2 acres, which may be used as a paddock or leisure field.
