Overall Description

This is a handsome Grade II Listed Georgian property, built in 1809, and subsequently extended and sympathetically modernised to create the glorious home that it now is. The house has plenty of period character with open fireplaces (the one in the main sitting room has a wood -burning stove) and sash windows - and the stylish decoration and later additions only add to the appeal such as the new oak flooring recently added downstairs, period-style radiators throughout, roll-top bath, and ceiling roses/coving. The kitchen/dining room with utility and downstairs cloakroom formed the rear extension and is now very much heart of the home. There are two further receptions downstairs, a good sized sitting room with wood-burner and study/snug with open fire. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two large doubles and a smaller double/single, as well as a luxury bathroom. The garden is a real feature of this house, attractively landscaped and very private, and the views of it from the house are a delight. Next to the garden is a gravel parking area with room for two cars. If you want a beautifully modernised period home just a stone's throw from London, right next to open countryside, then this charming property is well worth a look.

Location

The house is located in the hamlet of Bulls Cross opposite a footpath across open farmland and yet very well placed for local transport links, schools and amenities. It is less than five minute's drive from the junction both the M25 and A10, a similar distance from both Turkey Street Station (Liverpool Street in around 32 minutes) and Crews Hill Station (Moorgate in around 36 minutes), and a short walk to the bus stop. The house is a very short walk from the well regarded Forty Hill CofE Primary School (outstanding in the latest OFSTED report) and around five minutes from Worcesters Primary School (also outstanding). Local secondary schools include Aylands School (outstanding), St Ignatious College (good) and the Lea Valley High School (good). There is a village shop just up the road, two good local pubs, the Pied Bull (gastro pub) and King and Tinker, White Webbs Golf Club which can be reached via the footpath opposite and a coffee shop in Myddelton House. It is a great location for keen walkers or dog owners with footpaths leading across the surrounding countryside giving plenty of opportunity to stretch your legs.
