This large and exceptionally well-appointed single-storey family home occupies a highly sought after location on the edge of Epping Forest, the beautiful swathe of ancient woodland that links rural Essex and London.
When the current owner bought the house eleven years ago it's fair to say that it was in need of a lot of tlc. The décor was very dated and the layout was a little awkward so they brought in a team of builders and had the whole property modernised. Walls were taken down to create larger rooms, extra bathrooms added so now all the bedrooms are en-suite, elements such as the plumbing, wiring and heating system were all upgraded. Underfloor heating was installed and he also had a huge, bespoke picture and floor-to-ceiling windows fitted that not only let in a tremendous amount of light, but also make the most of the absolutely stunning setting. The work took a lot of time, effort and money but it was worth it and the house is now ready for the new owners to simply move in and enjoy. However this is also a house that still has tremendous potential, so should the new owners be looking for something to really get their teeth into, subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions, there is huge scope to develop it further.
What the Owner says:
I looked at twenty-three properties before I came across this house, but the minute I set eyes on it I knew i'd found the one. It's a lovely big family home with an amazing wrap-around garden that extends to 0.673 of an acre; it sits on a highly desirable road in one of the most sought after villages in the area, and while the house is surrounded by mile upon mile of glorious rolling countryside, it's just eleven miles from the centre of London. For me, the combination of property and location ticked so many boxes.
The house is set well away from what is actually a very quiet road and the garden stretches out from the back of the property and almost appears to meld with the rolling countryside beyond, so the views are really quite incredible. In fact, I often sit out there and find it hard to believe i'm so close to the hustle and bustle of the central London; I can be at home and feel totally away from it all or hop in the car or on the train and be in the West End in well under an hour. I don't think i'll ever find anywhere quite like it again.
