Impressive Country Home set in 6 Acres with Two Bedroom Cottage

Originally a smaller bungalow, Purleigh Grange is now an impressive country house set in just under 6 acres in the sought-after village of Purleigh. Constructed by the current owners, the house sits on an elevated position with fabulous country views to the front and rear.

Offering spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, the house is approached from the central entrance hall. To the left, the vast sitting room incorporates a log burner and windows to three aspects. The log burner can be used to supplement the heating system during the winter. To the opposite side of the entrance hall there is an office, internal lobby and cloakroom. Beyond to the rear the door leads to the remaining accommodation. This includes the generous kitchen/breakfast room and dining area, fitted with a range of bespoke cabinets and integrated appliances, and of particular note are the middle eastern floor tiles. A family room with views across the grounds is accessed from here, whilst the utility room and boiler room can be found from the opposite end of the kitchen. Returning to the entrance hall, the inner lobby leads to an enormous games room, fitted with a bar, and which has two sets of double glazed doors leading onto the terrace. Three metre ceiling heights throughout the ground floor add to the impression of spacious living accommodation.

The first floor accommodation comprises galleried landing, the Principal bedroom with two dressing rooms and an en-suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and bathrooms and a dressing room to the second bedroom.

Heating to the property is provided by an efficient eco-electric system, installed under floor to the ground floor, and the plant room houses a Thermostore offering the potential for solar installation. Energy efficiency is enhanced by the installation of double glazed windows throughout.

Adjacent to the property is an annex. This has a glass hallway leading to an, 'L' shaped sitting room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom to the ground floor, and two bedrooms and a dressing room located at first floor level.

This property has 6 acres of land.


Outside Originally, the grounds extended to four acres but the owners subsequently purchased a two acre paddock to the rear. Purleigh Grange has the advantage of sitting centrally within the grounds, which mostly consist of expansive areas of well- tended lawns, a pond and a selection of mature trees providing diversity. Immediately surrounding the rear and sides of the property is an attractive terrace and within the grounds is a detached garage consisting of two garages, an adjacent office, and generous storage facilities in the roof void.

Located to the front of the drive there is also (subject to negotiation) a barn with B1 use.


Travelling east from the City of Chelmsford, take the A414 towards Danbury. Pass through the village of Danbury until you reach a round-about. At the round-a-bout take the second exit towards Purleigh along the Burnham Road. Continue along this road for some distance until you arrive at the veterinary centre and the property can be found immediately after on the right.
