Being offered to the market for the first time in over 50 years.
Immersed in originality and history being one of the oldest homes in Stondon Massey listed Grade II, "Inglenook" is set within the most idyllic of settings. Situated within the heart of the village, yet well secluded and approached via a gated entrance into a long driveway with gardens to either side. The home has been thoughtfully enhanced and maintained over the years by its current custodians and has the added benefit of several outbuildings/workshops which present a multitude of opportunities for many uses. The home also offers flexibility with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom.
Overlooking the abutting Essex Countryside the home is the perfect semi-rural retreat yet only a short drive to Brentwood, Shenfield and indeed Ingatestone. On arriving at the home you are presented with a good size driveway providing parking for several vehicles and giving access to the range of outbuildings. The home can be entered from the original front door into the sitting room, beamed but of good height and with a beautiful Inglenook style red brick fireplace with inset log burning stove and hearth, providing a perfect reception and leading round to the dining area, again bathed in character and with the original "Bread oven". The third bedroom/home office is located off of the hallway of good size and offers unparalleled and uninterrupted views across the abutting Countryside. Adjacent to which is the family bathroom, offering a four piece suite with walk in shower as well as opportunity and space for laundry appliances. The ground floor is completed by the kitchen/dining room. Triple aspect and offering a large range of oak wall and base units with complementary worksurfaces and again enjoying views across the open fields to the rear. Read more
