About this property:
Situated on the edge of the pretty village of Abridge is Ottley’s, a large and very well-appointed family home that has been much enhanced by the current owner.
The home has a superb amount of outside space, a large courtyard where you can easily park up to eight cars, and beyond that is a formal garden. It’s mainly laid to lawn, there is also a huge patio terrace where you can sit out, relax, cook on the BBQ and there’s lots of space for alfresco dining, and there’s also a very nice summerhouse that sits under a huge willow tree. The garden is a feature of the property that the current owner has really enjoyed as it’s been a lovely place to entertain family and friends.
The location is fabulous, the property is surrounded by glorious countryside and is just a stone’s throw from Epping Forest, so it feels quite rural, but you also have easy access to everything you need. There are two cosy pubs, a restaurant, a deli and a corner shop that you can walk to, and for everything else you can either go to nearby Loughton or hop on the Overground or Underground and head into the city centre. In our opinion it’s a location that would be terribly hard to beat.
What The Owner Says:
I bought the property twenty-four years ago and it was a combination of this very scenic edge of village location and the size and sheer potential of the house itself that sold it to me. I wanted a lovely big family home for my children to grow up in, in a place where we could enjoy countryside living, but ease of access to all the things needed on a day-to-day basis, and this place ticked all of those boxes.
It was very rundown when I came here, but over time I’ve extended and updated the main house, and I converted a number of outbuildings to create self-contained accommodation, which meant that the children were able to have their own space as they got that bit older. However, since they flew the nest I’ve been able to establish a thriving B&B business, which brings in a nice little income. It’s been a roaring success, but the if the new owners didn’t want to continue with it, the property could be turned back into a family home, ideal for multi-generational living or they could turn some of the rooms into a home office. The possibilities are endless.
