Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A large timber framed five-bay curtilage listed Essex Barn situated in the grounds of Spinney Farm, a farmhouse dating from the 15th century.


Spinney Farm Barn is situated in a lovely stretch of open countryside some 5 miles to the north of the attractive market town of Chipping Ongar. The property is ideally placed for the M11 (3 miles) and the Central Line at Epping (7 miles) whilst Stansted Airport is just 16 miles away and Canary Wharf is about 24 miles to the south via the A13.

Local amenities can be found in Potter Street or in Chipping Ongar (5.7 miles) which has an excellent range of local boutique shops together with larger supermarkets (Tesco and Sainsbury). More extensive shopping facilities can be found at Epping, Chelmsford and Brentwood. There are primary schools in Ongar and Moreton as well as nearby schools Coopersale Hall, Chigwell, Bancrofts and The Forest. Whilst further afield are Felsted, New Hall, Brentwood School (with a coach pick-up/drop-off nearby), Bishop's Stortford College, Heath Mount and Haileybury.


The barn is a large timber framed five-bay curtilage listed building situated in the grounds of Spinney Farm, a farmhouse dating from the 15th century. The building is of timber frame with black weatherboard elevations under a clay and pantile roof. Much of the timber frame is original and intact, which will provide for some noteworthy features within the conversion.

The planning permission provides for about 2,100 sq ft of accommodation with three first floor bedrooms, en suite bathroom and shower room, a lovely central vaulted dining hall, living room, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom and study. Outside, the property will share the driveway with the adjoining farmhouse and the plot lies predominantly to the south and south east, mainly lawned, and including a substantial vegetable plot fronting onto Tilegate Road. The rear of the barn backs directly onto a public footpath.

The planning permission also provides for a detached three-bay cart lodge with two open bays and one secure store.


From Moreton village pass the Nags Head pub, continuing into Harlow Road. Continue for just under a mile, turning right into Mill Lane and then left into Tilegate Road towards High Laver Church. Pass the church on the right-hand side. At the crossroads continue over into Tilegate Road. Proceed for about a mile passing Faggotters Lane on your right, where the entrance to Spinney Farm will be found after a short distance on the right-hand side.
