Knowleton Hall is located at the end of a private lane within 0.5 mile from Ongar High Street which offers a range of shops, restaurants, pubs and a library. There are good transport links within a few miles and there are several well regarded state and private schools, some with transport pick up points nearby.


Knowleton Hall is a delightful character house dating back to circa 1887. In recent years it has been sympathetically updated and extended with style and imagination to create a beautiful family home with a lovely feeling of light and space. The accommodation is typical of its era comprising elegant and spacious rooms with high ceilings, cornicing and fireplaces. There is a contemporary wing built in 2011 which adds a fabulous counterpoint to the original house.

The entrance hall has an ornate mosaic floor and leads to an inner hall with leaded light windows, a feature fireplace, stairs to the first floor and doors to the drawing room and kitchen. The drawing room is full of period charm and the fabulous kitchen/breakfast/family room features a range of fitted units with integrated appliances, a breakfast bar, dining area and seating area with fireplace. There is a utility room, pantry and guest cloakroom.

There are 5 bedrooms, a shower room and family bathroom arranged over two floors.

The kitchen leads to the contemporary wing which offers a glazed atrium providing a dramatic living space flooded with natural light enjoying views over the garden and beyond. This leads to the light and spacious living room with two sets of doors to the garden and three skylights. There is access to one of the garages which is currently being used as a gym and a separate door to a ground floor shower room. There is a staircase rising to the first floor which comprises a large room with cloakroom. This room has a variety of potential uses including a home office, annex or games room.

The house is approached via a private lane which leads to the driveway providing parking for several vehicles and a double garage. The garden faces south and is mainly laid to lawn with a mature hedgerow and a paved patio area.
