The Lodge at Wood Hall is a handsome period property set in rolling parkland on the site of a sprawling Edwardian country house, six miles from the soughtafter town of Saffron Walden. The accommodation could benefit from some modernisation, but the property offers well-proportioned reception rooms and plenty of potential to be a superb family home in a desirable countryside setting. The ground floor accommodation includes two comfortable reception rooms – the drawing room and sitting room. Both are over 16ft long, with dual aspects, while the drawing room has a brick-built open fireplace. The kitchen and breakfast room to the rear has plenty of storage space in cream units, an integrated hob, oven and extractor hood, and space for all of the necessary appliances, while there is also a useful utility room. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, with the master benefitting from a large en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom.

This property has 2 acres of land.


To the front of the property there is a gravel driveway, which provides parking space for several vehicles and leads to the detached double garage. There is also a small garden, with a lawn and a paved pathway leading to the house. To the rear there are further gardens, with paved terracing, a good-sized lawn and border flowerbeds, with an additional 2 acres and views across the adjoining parkland.


The property is located just outside the small and pretty north Essex village of Arkesden. Arkesden has a local pub, a village hall set alongside the steady flow of Wicken Water, the small river that weaves through the village. The nearby town of Saffron Walden provides plenty of everyday amenities, including an excellent variety of shops, leisure facilities, cafés and restaurants, while further amenities can be found in Bishops Stortford and Royston, 10 and 11 miles away respectively. The local area has several schools, with the outstandingrated Clavering Primary School just a mile away, and the Joyce Frankland Academy, for secondary, in Saffron Walden. The area is well connected, with a railway station at Audley End providing services towards London Liverpool Street, Stansted Airport and Cambridge. By road, the M11 is within nine miles to the north or south.


From Cambridge city centre head towards Royston on A11 take the exit for the A1301/B184. At the roundabout, take the first exit onto the B184 and then at the next roundabout, take the third exit onto the B1383/Nemarket Road. Turn right onto the B1039 and continue before turning left, as the road bends to the right, following the sign for Arkesden. Continue for just over two miles, through Arkesden, before turning right onto the Wood Hall estate. The property will be immediately on your right-hand side.
