Pyes Farmhouse is an exceptional Grade II listed period property believed to date from the sixteenth century with later additions to both wings. Retaining a wealth of original features the beautiful accommodation blends modern family living with the essential character and history of this charming family home. Accommodation is arranged over two floors. The loft is part converted to a study (accessed via loft ladder) and there is potential for further conversion. Of particular note is Sitting room 2 in the award winning two-storey South wing. The most recent extension provides a fully fitted kitchen with lobby, boot room, utility room and to the rear is an oak framed garden room, providing superb views over the formal gardens.

The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and walk-in wardrobe. There are three further bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom on the first floor. The possibility exists, subject to planning permission, to extend further into the roof void, as we understand that this was used as accommodation in the past.

This property has 2.5 acres of land.


Pyes Farmhouse lies at the end of a private drive in a exceptionally secluded area. Formal gardens lie to the front and rear of the property, with a variety of established trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants, with mature yew, box and beech hedging creating a series of garden ‘rooms’. To one side is an oak framed and tiled roofed building with partially open sides for Summer entertaining. To the other side of the rear garden is an established mixed fruit orchard, with grass paths leading through to the tennis court and summerhouse. Mown paths meander through the remainder of the informally planted part of the garden to the studio/summerhouse, which is set on a small mound among a variety of trees. There are also two copses of silver birch trees.

To the west of this area behind the barn is an enclosed chicken run with houses, a formal vegetable garden and triple log store, a cutting garden, and a utility area, all enclosed by established mixed hedging. A drive of cotswold chippings to the front of the property leads to a triple garage, which is backed by two stables and a tack room. Across the stable yard is a barn which has lapsed planning permission for conversion to an annexe. A garden pond can be found at the head of the drive.


Onslow Green is situated close to the village of Great Dunmow, with its range of shopping and schooling facilities. The nearby City of Chelmsford to the South East and Bishops Stortford to the West, offer a broader range of commercial, entertainment and educational amenities, together with mainline station, providing regular service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of 38 minutes. Pyes Farmhouse is well placed for transport links to the A120 at Dunmow, linking with the extensive motorway networks to London to the South, and Cambridge to the North. Stansted Airport to the North caters for domestic and international destinations, as well as providing an alternative mainline station to London Liverpool Street. The area is well serviced by both state and private schools, including Bishops Stortford College, The Felsted Schools, Saffron Walden High School, Helena Romanes School in Dunmow, The Perse in Cambridge, Chelmsford County High School for Girls and King Edward VI Grammar School in Chelmsford.


From Chelmsford travelling north away from the city centre, follow signs to Great Dunmow on the B1008. After the turning and sign for North End, take left turn signposted to Onslow Green. Continue through the hamlet and after a hard left turn in the road, take the private drive to the right signposted to Pyes Farm. Pyes Farmhouse lies at the end of the drive on the right.
