A stunning three/four bedroom mews house within this gated development of just four individually designed homes, located within a converted Coach House on the borders of Fryerning and Ingatestone adjacent to the historic Trueloves House, a glorious Neo-Gothic mansion built in 1859.
The Stables at Trueloves has undergone an impressive conversion to create four unique freehold homes, this being the largest of the four and offering a large, brick-built studio in the garden, as well as a mezzanine level within the clocktower. Retaining all of the original architectural elegance and offering the convenience and individuality many buyers seek but can rarely find in this segment of the market. The development is approached via a tree-lined driveway where the trees were planted in pairs, giving inspiration for the name - true-loves.
The property features a private garden, energy-efficient air source heat pump, under floor heating, two allocated parking spaces and a private indoor courtyard set within the original Victorian cast iron stables under a glazed atrium roof. The Trueloves estate was originally occupied by members of the local Petre Family in the mid-1600's, who continue today to reside at the Ingatestone Hall Estate. Trueloves House and Stables was constructed in 1859 and has since been occupied by various members of the British gentry. The property offers many striking features, including red brick elevations with stripes and decoration of black and gault brick, a slate roof with fishscale pattern bands, and arched windows in a Gothic style.
The villages of Ingatestone and Fryerning, renowned for having one of the most exclusive postcodes in Essex, are surrounded by a wealth of Green Belt, farmland, ancient hedgerows and woodland, and the area retains a distinctly rural atmosphere despite its convenient location between Brentwood and Chelmsford and its excellent rail and road links into London.
