Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This striking home was beautifully designed in 1936 by marine architect Alfred Moulton. It occupies an enviable corner location on one of Loughton's premier roads.

The house was designed by Moulton for himself with exquisite details referencing his nautical heritage. It is described in the Essex volume of Pevsner's “The Buildings of England” as one of the domestic buildings of interest in Loughton. It retains many original features including a magnificent panelled entrance hall that features an elegant hidden bar, which is fabulous for entertaining. Original parquet flooring features throughout much of the ground floor, with solid oak floorboards on the first floor. The ground floor also features spectacular stained glass windows and two impressive marble fireplaces that have been beautifully restored. The first floor landing leads to a balcony accessed through double doors with stained glass.

The current owners have lovingly restored and enhanced the house to an exceptional standard; the original Crittall windows were replaced with double glazed units that were again made by Crittall. The luxurious bathrooms have been modernised to a high standard, with the main bathroom on the first floor featuring stained glass windows. Every care has been taken to maintain the original beauty of the period features. The wonderful bespoke kitchen features hand painted units and a breakfast area with French doors leading to the impressive garden, which provides outdoor family dining space.

This is a house that was built with love and real care, and it simply exudes quality. Uniquely it still offers the new owners a rare and exciting opportunity to develop the home or land, subject to any necessary planning permissions being obtained.

What the Owner says:


We bought the house in 2011 and as well as the unique character and charm of the house itself, it was the location that proved to be one of the biggest selling points. It sits on one of the most sought after roads in the area, just a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Loughton High Road and most importantly for us only five minutes from the Tube station, so it's incredibly convenient, and the house itself is unlike anything we'd seen before.

One of the things that initially attracted us to the property was the wonderful sense of space both inside and out. Each of the rooms, and even the hall and landing are generously proportioned, and we also benefit from having a very large and very attractive garden. It was beautifully landscaped by a previous owner so it's well stocked with a variety of plants which provide colour and interest all year round. It also incorporates a number of different seating areas so we can follow the sun all day long.

For us it's been an incredibly happy home and we've no doubt its new owners will enjoy living here every bit as much as we have.
