Property Description

The Brewhouse is an exceptional, single storey house set in a beautifully landscaped one acre garden with established trees and bushes. Its single storey profile and pitched roofs and copious glazing, sympathetically blends the house into its surroundings. This 3 bedroom house provides a serene and natural environment, allowing the surrounding greenery to take centre stage. Privacy and tranquillity is assured by mature hedges and evergreen trees, whilst focussing on the stunning South and East facing views over open farmland and woods.

The Brewhouse was originally a building forming part of the adjoining Watermans End Farmhouse, a fine late 16th century listed house. It was converted and sympathetically renovated for the present owner about 10 years ago and provides excellent ‘one level’ accommodation with a high specification. The main front door opens to a generous hallway with floor to ceiling storage and the adjoining utility area is well equipped and fitted with carrera marble quartz work surfaces. The excellent kitchen, is well equipped with integrated appliances, granite worktops and solid hardwood (sapele) fronted cabinets. It is the centre between the utility area and the large open-plan living space. The drawing and dining room area is wonderful open plan environment almost 42ft long with a vaulted ceiling. It is bright, light area , with some floor to ceiling glazing and three sets of wide doors to the terraces and garden, making it an ideal house for inside/outside living. An exceptional light oak wooden flooring is laid in the entire open-plan areas and the bedrooms. The 1” thick, solid oak is laid in long planks of varying width, clearly carefully hand crafted and creating a sense space.

There are bright, modern three bedrooms and three modern bathrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and two further shower rooms which adjoin the other two bedrooms.

The Brewhouse is a part brick, part Essex timber framed building and it is extremely well insulated, has solar panels and is very economical to run. Many of the original features of the old Brewhouse were retained during the refurbishment, including the beautiful curved beams, fireplace and original baking oven door. The owner gave a great nod towards making it an environmentally sustainable and climate resilient house. On the occasional extremely hot summers days being experienced now, one can simply turn on the air conditioning, which is installed throughout the house, powered by air source heat pumps. On cold winter days when you might want extra cosiness provided by a live fire, the built-in wood burner provides you with this, but also provides additional heat and hot water via its back burner system.

Outside, the house is surrounded on two sides by generous terraces gardens, one running the full length of the open plan area, approx 18m x6m and another, partially, covered terrace of approx 12m x 8m. From the side terrace area wide steps lead to lawns and well mature trees. The lawns are being easily maintained by a lawn robot (called Bertie). The garden is well established with herbaceous, shrub and rose borders as well as mature hedges. The house is reached by a private, gated, 45 m long, wide driveway and provides ample room for car parking. Storage and workshop space is provided by a 12 meter long shed.

The Brewhouse is part of Watermans End, a small hamlet of character period properties about 300 meters outside the highly regarded village of Matching Green, which is considered to be one of the prettiest North Essex villages. The village enjoys a convenient location for Bishops Stortford and Harlow and the M11 motorway (Junctions 7 and 7A) providing access to London, the M25, Cambridge and the Midlands.
