Asking Price £4,000,000
Located within one of Essex's most desirable village settings is a beautiful Manor House with the potential to provide new owners with a lifestyle of luxury within its fifteen acre grounds surrounded by rural countryside.
The property is an unfinished renovation project but the majority of the structural work has been completed.
Secure behind a gated driveway is this beautifully imposing property that has been greatly extended to provide almost double the internal living space with a grand foyer entrance, kitchen breakfast room, dining room, two large reception rooms, a peaceful library, leisure complex with plumbing ready for the installation of a new swimming pool and hot tub.
The first floor principle bedroom is a stunning suite with ensuite bathroom and dressing room as well as doors out to a large roof terrace with south facing views over the grounds.
There are a further three large double bedrooms on the floor as well as an unfinished laundry room, another ensuite and family bathroom.
Also within the grounds of this beautiful yellow stone brick Edwardian style home is paddocks, formal gardens with large pond, a spacious three bedroom detached annex, Aviary, brick built green house with enclosed garden, quadruple garage to the main dwelling as well as another quadruple garage with two grand home offices above and a warehouse in excess of 4000 square feet. To the rear of the plot, a steel frame is in place for a large barn and planning consent for a block of 16 luxury stables.
"Set within exquisitely landscaped gardens, the Manor House is a luxury home like no other," says the vendor, "with stunningly unique features both inside and out. The breathtakingly beautiful gardens have had so much love and care lavished upon them over the years, and include a substantial pond with water features, trees all around, and even ducks; formal gardens with raised pathways; large sweeping lawns; and a picturesque greenhouse edged with grapevines. We have hosted annual summer garden parties here for 50 guests, with badminton, croquet and garden games on the lawn, and a marquee for dancing and dining."
Inside, the house itself is equally suited to entertaining. "The double height reception room would be perfect for parties," says the vendor, "and the vast dining room and living room are large enough for the children to have running races there. During renovations, we even rollerbladed around the dining room before putting the furniture in. The aviary always proves popular with guests, too. My favourite room, however, is the luxurious library with its bespoke bookshelves full of antique tomes – it is such a peaceful place to be."
The location of the property has much to recommend it, too. "The sense of community here is lovely," says the vendor, "with regular community gatherings hosted in the village hall, including yoga classes, playschool for young children, and a weekly cafe. The village hall also has a shop, as well as a Post Office service on Thursdays and Fridays. There is a local primary school within walking distance, and a pub a mile down the road. Nearby West Horndon station offers direct services to London, with connections to the Underground via West Ham."
"I will miss the views from the flat roof over the beautifully tended gardens, which embody years of love and care."
Known to the local area, Manor House occupies a corner plot location on the fringe of Bulphan, a picturesque Essex village that offers rural living withing easy reach of a wealth of amenities.
Perfectly positioned between Brentwood and Orsett, residents of this property will have the option to take in the picturesque countryside views on their hack out to Bulphan Fenns or Langdon Hills. Also close by are both the Langdon Hills Golf and Country Club and the nature reserve.
Within seven miles of home is the Thames Estuary and London international freeport and cruise terminal and further out you can easily satisfy your shopping needs with a choice of Lakeside, Bluewater and London's west end shopping centres.
The neighbouring West Horndon has a rail station on the city to coast line to benefit commuters as well as major roads with easy reach.
