Full description

18TH CENTURY - A fine Listed (Grade II) home overlooking much favoured Writtle Green, set over three floors and boasting 2,800 sq ft of period-correct accommodation with garaging and parking to the rear.

Several features denote the history of Greenbury House: the pargeted panels to the front elevation; a magnificent doorcase with semi-circular fanlight window; a double-pitched mansard roof (double pitched due to the sheer depth of the building); and heavy wrought iron gates and railings. The period details continue internally, with sash windows, exposed structural timbers, and a range of original fireplaces.

Comprehensively restored and enhanced in recent years, the accommodation is comparatively vast in scale, set across three floors and generous in proportion. A wander of the ground floor is to step back in time, admiring the features originating from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Finely proportioned reception rooms would have pleased the gentry of the day, and the central area of the ground floor gives a step back in time in what would have been the original 18th century kitchen, presented with an exposed brick floor and exposed 'lathes' and timberwork. The internal window giving natural light to this area is yet another layer of this property's history.A total of three reception rooms sit in addition to the kitchen/breakfast room, as well as a utility room, larder and ground floor cloakroom/wc. Six bedrooms occupy the first and second floors, with four bedrooms and a family bathroom at first floor level, and two sizeable rooms to the second. The master suite enjoys an en-suite and currently utilises one of the bedrooms as a glorious, light-filled dressing room.

It is worthy of note that the property was formerly occupied by Baroness Platt CBE, member of the House of Lords and a pioneering Aeronautical Engineer noted for her involvement with the RAF's outstanding fighter planes of the time, the Hurricane and Typhoon.
