Charming Georgian Grade II listed country house located 1.7 miles from the centre of Felsted.

Believed to date from 1787 Sewards Hall is a fine example of a late Georgian country home set in grounds of approximately 5 acres.

Listed as being of Architectural and Historical interest, this Grade II listed property provides immaculate accommodation with beautifully proportioned reception rooms which benefit from high ceilings and deep sash windows associated with this period of architecture. The double fronted construction has rooms radiating from a central reception hall and comprises a sitting room and drawing room to the front aspect with a study and utility room to the rear. Of particular note is the extended garden room which has been designed to overlook three aspects of the gardens, and the parquet flooring to the sitting room and drawing room. The kitchen has a fine range of bespoke cabinets, made by a local craftsman, granite surfaces and an Aga. A further wing to the rear comprises the cloakroom, TV room, boiler room/workshop, adjacent to a large studio which can also be utilised as an internal garage. From the utility room a staircase leads down to a cellar.

The first floor accommodation comprises the master bedroom with en suite shower and dressing room, with Smallbone cupboards. Five further bedrooms, two bathrooms and hatch leading to a large loft space.

This property has 5 acres of land.

Outside

The house is approached via a long tree lined gravel drive which bisects the formal lawns and creates the atmosphere of a parkland setting with an abundance of mature trees and an all weather tennis court. To the rear and adjacent to the sun room is a west facing terrace, protected by a wall and which acts as a suntrap. South of this is the summer house overlooking the croquet lawn and the well defined boundaries overlook open farm land. The outbuildings lie to the south of the house and comprise a double garage, a store room, a large work shop and an equally large wood stoe.
