Detached bungalow with equestrian facilities

This fine single-storey residence benefits from countryside views and well-presented accommodation throughout. Of particular note, the vendor has obtained full planning permission for a single side extension, as well as two further bedrooms and bathrooms to the first floor. This idyllic semi-rural home offers comfortable living space, along with an excellent set-up for the keeping of several horses.

The open-plan kitchen/breakfast room features bespoke painted wood units with solid timber countertops, a butler sink and a traditional range cooker; the room offers plenty of space for dining, along with access to the garden. The generously sized sitting room features a characterful brick fireplace with wood-burning stove, and the space flows into the light-filled conservatory overlooking the garden and views beyond.

A spacious utility/boot room offers a useful space with direct access outside, which could be utilised as a second kitchen for those needing an annexe; one of the double bedrooms with ensuite is accessed from this room. Three further bedrooms are serviced by a well-appointed family shower room; two of the bedrooms feature sliding doors opening up to the garden.

The property is approached via a private driveway which leads to a parking area large enough for several vehicles and horse boxes. There is a recently replaced manège by Charles Britton with a wax track surface, as well as a Claydon horse walker, several post and rail paddocks; located near the extensive and fully alarmed stables, with hay barn and tack rooms. For those that are looking for a more superior equestrian experience, there are plenty of byways and quiet country lanes for hacking and is within close proximity to an animal feed store. The gardens are attractive and feature mature trees, shrubs and planting, a patio area, and tremendous views across the surrounding grounds and down to the Bourne Brook.

This property has 6.34 acres of land.


Situated in a picturesque part of Essex, the property enjoys a rural location that is within easy reach of amenities at the nearby villages of Greenstead Green and Stisted; charming and picturesque villages with a strong community spirit.
