A highly attractive detached, five bedroom family home, in the pretty Essex village of Toppesfield

A beautifully presented detached family home, with five bedrooms and extensive accommodation, set in the pretty Essex village of Toppesfield. The property has been extended, and is finished to a high standard throughout, boasting period features in the original parts of the house, with oak windows and door frames complementing the clean, neutral décor.

On the ground floor there are five well proportioned reception rooms, including the sitting room and family room; both of which feature grand original fireplaces. There is a useful office, and a formal dining room, which has French doors opening onto the rear gardens, while the large conservatory is a light and airy space to enjoy views over the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with appealing painted storage units and includes solid wood worktops, a range cooker and an island.

There are five generous double bedrooms to the first floor, including the master, with its en suite shower room, and one further bedroom with en suite. There is also a family bathroom.

This property has 0.5 acres of land.


The property is approached via a block-paved driveway, which provides plenty of parking space, and access to the double garage. The garage has useful accommodation to its first floor, accessed via an external staircase. There is a well maintained lawn to the front of the house, while the front entrance has an attractive timber constructed storm porch.

To the side and rear of the property there are delightful gardens, with a timber deck to the rear, accessed from the dining room, a children’s play area, and a pristine expanse of lawn, with a further decked seating terrace, all enclosed and surrounded by established hedgerow and mature trees.


The property is set in Toppesfield village to the north of Essex. Surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, the village is within easy reach of the desirable town of Halstead, while Braintree is also close-at-hand. Toppesfield has a local pub, a parish church and a village primary school, while there are some everyday amenities in nearby Great Yeldham and Sible Hedingham. Larger supermarkets can be found in Halstead, while Braintree has an excellent choice of shops, and the popular Freeport Designer Village. The area is well connected by road, with good connections to the M11 and A12, while regular rail services to London can be found in Braintree (approx. 1 hour).


From Chelmsford, take the A1016 away from the city centre and head north on Essex Regiment Way (A130). Go straight ahead at five roundabouts, and then take the third exit onto Braintree Road (A131). Stay on the A131 through six roundabouts, and then turn onto the A120, towards Halstead and Freeport Designer Village. Take the second exit at the roundabout to stay on the A120, and at the next roundabout, re-join the A131. Follow the A131 through one roundabout, and at High Garrett, turn left at the traffic lights onto the A1017 (Braintree Road). Continue for seven and a half miles, through Gosfield and Sible Hedingham, and turn left onto Toppesfield Road just after passing The White Hart pub. After a mile and a half, turn left onto Gainsford End Road, and you will find the property immediately on you right-hand side.
