Winton House is delightfully situated in an elevated position to the south of the village green which lies at the heart of the village, in the Conservation Area. The village has the usual amenities including a post office/village shop and a primary school, both within easy walking distance and there is a wider range of shopping and recreational facilities at Braintree including a Sainsbury's and Tesco supermarket.

It is also within a short drive of several private schools including Felsted School and Gosfield School, and for the commuter there are train stations at Braintree, Witham and Kelvedon to London Liverpool Street with access onto the M11 (junction 8) and to Stansted Airport via the A120.


Winton House is believed to date from 1905 with later additions, constructed of red brick under a tiled roof. The house has many features including original fireplaces in the main reception rooms, high ceilings which are typical of the period and provides good accommodation. On the ground floor the front door opens into a hall off which is the sitting room, and a dining hall, off which is the living room, with two sets of French doors opening into the garden. The kitchen/family/breakfast room is located at the rear of the house overlooking the garden, well fitted with a range of floor units incorporating a Britannia range set in the chimney recess and incorporating integrated appliances and with French doors out onto the patio. Off the back lobby is a utility room and cloakroom with steps down to a basement study. A door in the back lobby leads out on to the patio and into the garden.

On the first floor is a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom with a free-standing bath, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

To the side of the house is a shared drive leading to a brick double garage and workshop. A gate leads into the delightful south-facing walled garden which is on two levels, laid to lawn with shrub borders and with a patio adjacent to the house. Above the garage is a studio, panelled to dado height internally with plumbing for a w.c. and shower.

Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil-fired heating.
