A detached Grade II listed period home, beautifully presented, with useful outbuildings enjoying countryside views in a rural position.


Hope End Green is a picturesque hamlet of just a few houses on the edges of Great Canfield in Essex. Great Canfield is a conveniently located village with a few local shops, a well-regarded primary school and easy access to junction 8 of the M11.

It is well positioned for access both to Bishop's Stortford to the west and Dunmow to the east. Bishop's Stortford's mainline railway station has fast links to London Liverpool Street (from 38 minutes approx).

There is a variety of both state and private schooling in the surrounding area together with additional shopping and recreational facilities.

The house also enjoys convenient access to London Stansted Airport.


This beautifully presented Grade II Listed cottage has been sympathetically modernised and updated combining character with a contemporary interior and is set in the idyllic hamlet of Hope End Green on the fringes of Great Canfield.

The original front door takes you straight into the double aspect living room which features a fireplace with inset wood burning stove and door to the garden. This well-proportioned room provides access to the study at the south end of the house enjoying a triple aspect and views of the garden. The living room also provides access to the kitchen/breakfast room which features an oil fired Aga and a range of custom-built walnut base units and fitted corner bench seating.

From here the inner hallway provides access to the utility/boot room offering plenty of storage, the TV room, guest cloakroom and the garden to the rear.

The first floor provides access to the bedroom accommodation which comprises four bedrooms which share a family bathroom, plus a separate shower room. The master bedroom features a fabulous vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers and built-in wardrobes.

The house sits in neatly tended, landscaped gardens enjoying a westerly aspect with an extensive patio to the rear. Steps lead up to the lawn and a range of useful outbuildings situated to the rear of the plot including large shed with light and power, currently used as a workshop. The garden offers some lovely views over neighbouring countryside.

To the front, the in-out driveway provides parking for several vehicles with space for a cart lodge if required (subject to planning permission). Lapsed planning permission exists to enlarge the ground floor accommodation with the addition of a vaulted garden room at the rear of the house.
