Property Description

The Bury lies in splendid location set back from the village High Street in a secluded and private setting. The house enjoys all advantages of a country house including privacy and open views with all the benefits of village life such as the shop, pub, church, etc which are all within easy walking distance

The Bury is Grade II Listed, considered to be of architectural and historical merit. The Listing suggests that the property was built in the late 16th or early 17th century and is traditionally built with a timber frame with rendered and plastered elevations under a neat thatched roof. The house was significantly extended in the 1920s to create a different architectural style and larger rooms with higher ceilings. For a house which has been so significantly extended, the accommodation flows surprisingly well and offers spacious rooms with considerable charm. The Bury has been an outstanding family home for fifty years and, for some, will be the best of both worlds; a country house but in the centre of an historic and picturesque west Essex village.

The grounds are private and include a small orchard, a more formal garden, former grass tennis court with paddocks and maturing trees beyond. The house has great character particularly in the older part of the building with open fireplaces and substantial timbers and the rooms built in the 1920s are generally larger with taller ceilings and several have fine views over the garden. The flexible ground floor accommodation includes four reception rooms, a kitchen/ breakfast room and utility area, office, butlers pantry and two ground floor cloakrooms. Three staircases lead to the first floor where there are seven bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shower room and two cloakrooms. The house has been well-maintained, but offers the new owners a great opportunity to modernise the interior. A driveway crosses a pond and leads to a parking and turning area beside the house. A link leads from the house to the double garage which has storage space in the roof, workshop, pump room and shower room. There is additional parking for about five cars in the courtyard. Within the grounds there is an apple store, stables, wood store, shepherd’s hut and a number of storage sheds. The grounds are relatively easily maintained with lawns, shrubs, mature trees. There is a large enclosed vegetable garden and fruit cage. There is planning potential here to place a further property. To the back of the plot, there are paddocks, a small spinney of deciduous and coniferous trees. The plot extends to about 5.75 acres.

Agents note: There is a hole in the ground close to the house which is a former swimming pool and with expenditure could be brought back into use. In addition, there is a gardener’s WC and small changing room which have historically been used in conjunction with the swimming pool
