The main drawing room is a stunning room with six sets of decorative windows, pine flooring and impressive 22'8" high pine vaulted ceiling, overlooked from the galleried landing above. Doors lead through to a garden room with built in book case and cupboards, UPVC double glazed French doors leading out to the gardens and a door leading through to a boiler room.

The sitting room is found at the front of the property and has three sets of attractive decorative windows as well as a fireplace, recess with shelving and cupboard. Doors lead through to the dining room with flagstone flooring and stairs leading to the first floor with small cupboard beneath.

This leads through to the kitchen which is comprehensively fitted with cream units and a combination of solid wood and granite work surfaces with butler sink and ample cupboard and drawer units. Built in appliances include integral dishwasher, fridge and freezer, Neff double oven as well as a Rangemaster oven and extractor hood. The island unit houses a preparation sink. A side lobby area has a useful storage cupboard and door leading on through to the cloakroom. The boot room has a dual aspect with tiled flooring and French doors leading out to the garden, whilst adjoining is the utility room with roll top work surfaces with cupboards above and plumbing for a washing machine as well as space for a tumble drier.

A long landing leads through to the gallery overlooking the drawing room with 13'6" high vaulted pine ceiling. The main bedroom has a range of built in bedroom furniture and dual aspect including UPVC double glazed French doors leading out onto a balcony overlooking the gardens. The ensuite has a marble topped vanity unit with two inset wash basins with cupboards and drawers under, walk in shower cubicle with glass screen, free standing slipper bath and toilet.

The property is approached from the Coggeshall Road with two separate gated entrances, one to the house and one to the equestrian facilities. An electric gate opens to the driveway of the house, sweeping round to the front of the property and providing parking with lawns and shrub borders. The shingle drive continues to the side, again with ample parking and leading on to the detached double garage with up and over doors, power and light connected. To the rear of the property is a paved terrace leading out on to lawns with established trees sweeping round to the side where there are further lawns, trees and a detached home office/studio with power and light connected.

From the main entrance, gated access leads down to the yard where there is ample parking for vehicles and horse box. The yard is immaculately presented with a concrete base with post and rail gated area in front of the stable block. There are four boxes with automatic water and matting, whilst at the end is a large tack room with kitchen including sink and plumbing for a washing machine. To the side of the block is a covered wash area leading round to a further stable block with three boxes again with automatic water and matting.
