The property is accessed via a tree-lined driveway, which leads to a parking area and provides access to several outbuildings. There is a single garage attached to the house, plus a cart lodge with a room on the first-floor above.

Additionally, there is a large barn, providing further covered parking for vehicles and storage, or the potential for development, subject to the necessary consents. The house is set in mature gardens, which are surrounded be established trees and hedgerows, and provide a peaceful setting in which to relax.


The house is located just within the popular village of Rayne, which is near to the market town of Braintree.
