History & Background

Hall Farm is an immediately impressive property (Listed as Grade II) and situated in an enviable rural position with mature acreage and great lifestyle & leisure facilities, yet is so easily accessible for Shenfield's Cross Rail and major surrounding road links for the City and beyond.

The property dates back in part to 17th Century with later 19th and 20th Century additions offering a combination of both characterful accommodation and modern day living. The configuration of well-proportioned rooms offer good family living with space both inside and within the grounds to entertain. The facilities within the part walled mature grounds include a Tennis Court with modern ETC surfacing, a former stable complex; now a leisure/pool complex with a 12m heated outdoor pool, surrounded by good storage, which further includes fun leisure rooms for pool and table tennis tables, changing rooms with WC, a covered family BBQ area and extensive terraces.

The acreage includes a paddock suitable for a family pony (or two) or to just enjoy the landscape and perhaps create a wild flower meadow.

The property is being sold as part of the title. The barns, stabling and garaging beyond the pool complex are to have between one and four new homes, subject to enhance planning approval. The purchaser of Hall Farm will undertake not to object to residential dwellings of this nature.

Setting & Location

The property is situated in a highly sought after position on the edge of Shenfield, in Hall Lane with open farmland to both the front and rear aspects yet is located just 2.3 miles from Shenfield Mainline Station and Crossrail (2019) and a similar distance for A12 access for M25 (J28).

The house is set behind a walled boundary with extensive frontage and wide gated access affords right of access to an area designated for garaging and parking. The purchaser might be able to obtain future planning for a separate entrance, subject to the required consents for a listed building.

Nearby schooling offers an excellent choice in both the private and Government run sectors. These include Brentwood School, Brentwood Ursuline, Shenfield High, Brentwood County High and The Anglo European School in Ingatestone.

Ground Floor Accommodation

The main entrance is approached from the west elevation with a welcoming reception area and access to the ground floor cloakroom/wk. and Dining room, which interlinks with the Drawing room. These principal receptions are situated in the older part of the house, each enjoying magnificent Inglenook fireplaces and exposed timbers with an outlook across farmland to the south.
The reception hall leads immediately into a central breakfast room area which provides the flowing interlinking access for the modern kitchen/breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling, quality integrated appliances and a rear lobby/storage area for access to the well-proportioned bespoke garden room which has underfloor heating and overlooks the mature gardens and then in turn access also leads from the garden room into the sitting room/study.

Stairs lead down to the basement laundry room. This room is tanked for intended use and provides space for washing machines and additional white goods (such as a chest freezer) with good storage facilities.

First Floor Accommodation

A door with stairs leads to the first floor part galleried landings which are split level creating further character. The first floor has five good size bedrooms. The current configuration has allowed the current owners to utilise the rooms at the east end for a master bedroom with access to a modern en-suite bathroom with separate shower and underfloor heating, with a further door providing access from an inner landing and fifth bedroom fitted out as a dressing room with floor to ceiling storage and a vanity area.

There are three further double bedrooms, each with individual features; one having a vaulted ceiling and the majority of rooms enjoy the outlook and rural vista over its own grounds and farmland. There is an additional family bathroom with a corner bath and also with a separate shower.

A door and stairs lead up to the attic room. This could be an additional bedroom or a play/hobbies room, to suit.


The mature gardens encompass the house with a part walled front garden featuring a Well. The gardens are well stocked and continue around to the side where there is a largely screened Tennis Court with high chain link fencing and a modern ETC surface for the more serious player. The rear garden, amongst lawn areas are numerous specimen trees including an attractive species of Pine, Yew, Copper Beach, together with part walled features, lower and upper terraces with a path that leads to the covered family area for al-fresco dining and BBQ's through to the Pool/Leisure complex. There is also a boiler house.

Essentially the pool complex is centred to former stabling on three sides creating good storage and stables which have been converted for games rooms and entertaining (with table tennis and billiard tables), facilities for the pool room, pool furniture and inflatables plus a changing room with shower and WC. To one side of the garden is an attractive paddock.
