Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exquisite, fully restored and enhanced former Rectory, Listed (Grade II) offering over 3,000 sq ft of unparalleled accommodation, within truly outstanding landscaped and meticulously maintained grounds approaching 2 acres (stls), within the tranquil Parish of Greensted and its historic Church (the oldest timber structure in Europe), yet being convenient for commuting and international travel.

A wisteria-adorned gated access opens into a sweeping driveway, allowing the home to unveil its elegance to you. Nestled within its grounds and having an abundance of outbuildings and garaging for several vehicles, with a large games room and splendid indoor swimming pool complex, all designed appropriately to blend with the original architecture of the home.

Having an array of period features, in keeping with the late Georgian early Regency eras, including high ceilings, hand-tooled cornice, deep architraves and cabinetry, wonderful large fully operational sash windows, original glazing bars and in many cases, the original glass. Several elegant fireplaces with marble surrounds - restored and enhanced - sit effortlessly against a more contemporary interior, making for a welcoming family home.

Commencing with an inviting entrance hall, accommodation comprises a drawing room, sitting room, study, cloakroom, bespoke Christians kitchen/breakfast room, adjoining pantry, many being dual aspect and enjoying enchanting views across the grounds. The ground floor culminates with a hand crafted Orangery, which ties the home seamlessly to the grounds and across to the games room and pool complex.

A bespoke, sweeping staircase with ?monkey's tail? handrail and period-designed pineapple-spindles lead to the first floor, which comprises an impressive master suite, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The grounds are beautifully maintained and mature, predominantly lawned and with an abundance of specimen planting. Further land available under separate negotiation.
