Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sheepcote Farm is an exceptional family house with beautiful grounds in a peaceful, rural setting with views over the undulating countryside of the Stour Valley. Believed to date back to 1770 or earlier, the Grade II listed house is of timber frame construction with rendered elevations under peg tiled roofs. Impressive period features throughout include exposed timbers and floorboards, fireplaces and vaulted ceilings all of which are further enhanced by the superb taste and interior design of the current owners. This sense of style extends into the delightful detached cottage which generates a successful holiday let income. There is also a Granary cottage which provides studio accommodation and would also work well as a home office. Adjoining is a detached summer house/gym. The main house is enchanting and takes full advantage of the outstanding views towards Great Henny Church.


Sheepcote Farm is superbly set at the end of a long private drive yet within walking distance of a popular riverside pub/restaurant, The Henny Swan. This part of the Stour Valley, on the Essex/Suffolk borders, is known for its exceptional beauty with gently undulating countryside either side of the River Stour. The house enjoys a private and elevated setting making this an enviable location. Great Henny is on the edge of Sudbury which offers a wide range of everyday amenities including shops, schools, sporting facilities, supermarkets plus a branchline station which connects onto the mainline at Marks Tey for London Liverpool Street. Neighbouring Bures also offers a branchline station and good facilities, whilst there are mainline stations at both Marks Tey and Colchester (fastest trains from 48 mins). Highly regarded schools in the area include the top grammar schools in Colchester. There are wonderful country walks from the property plus rowing on the River Stour.


The property is completely hidden away being approached from a little used country lane onto a long private driveway which leads through established trees to a parking area infront of the first traditional barn. A path from the parking area leads to the main house and runs alongside the cottage and granary. The principal garden, which lies to the front of the house, enjoys a south westerly aspect; this area is laid to lawn interspersed with trees and sweeps down to the open countryside. A brick terrace adjoins the house featuring a wonderful Magnolia. Further trees include Oak, Beech, Fig, Poplar, Scottish Fir and Chestnut.
