Description

What We Say at The Zoe Napier Group
This is an instantly attractive farmhouse home with cottage annexe in a rural setting but with convenient access to local amenities. The equestrian possibilities are clear to see, and with the property not listed, there is exciting potential to develop the array of outbuildings for residential or business use(stp).
What the Owners Say
Living here has been a joy and a fantastic place for an active and outdoors family lifestyle. As well as benefiting the family, the property has been home to numerous animals and we will miss the relaxing hours spend in the grounds, enjoying the magnificent landscapes, sunsets and abundant wildlife.
History & Background
This superb, four-bedroom character farmhouse was formerly part of a much larger estate and although not listed, dates to the 1500’s and now has the added benefit of an annexe cottage conversion.
The property stands on a glorious 5.7 acres(stls) of grounds that surveys the magnificent surrounding countryside. With an array of existing outbuildings there are obvious possibilities to create something incredibly special and in keeping with the wonderful setting that this property enjoys.
The current vendor has owned the property for 44 years and the farmhouse has been updated within this timeframe to include the addition of the indoor pool. Additional benefits include a studio and over 2000 sq. feet of outbuildings.
As one might expect from a character home attractive features include exposed beams and high ceilings allowing a good sensation of space and light.
The house does require modernisation, but the possibilities are incredibly exciting and for the right buyers the prospect to create a property masterpiece in stunning rural surroundings.
Setting & Location
Lying between the villages of Boyton and Great Sampford, this wonderful Essex farmhouse enjoys far reaching views of sweeping countryside and open farmland and delivers the most perfect rural ambience.
Great Sampford offers a highly regarded primary school with village hall, a cricket ground and play area, and the popular Red Lion Inn and Italian Restaurant. More extensive amenities are available in the picturesque neighbouring market towns of Thaxted, Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow.
The area is extremely popular for open countryside walking and offers a superb rural and outdoor lifestyle. However, being so close to three key market towns, it benefits from convenient access to all necessary amenities, with the bonus of a choice of three railway stations to meet any commuting needs to London and Cambridge, as well as Stansted Airport.
The property borders Essex, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk and therefore benefits from convenient access to the M11. The nearest railway station is Audley End which lies ten miles away from the property.
Cambridge 20 miles* Saffron Walden 8.4 miles* Thaxted 3.1 miles* Great Dunmow 9.4 miles* Average journey time to London 65 minutes* Stansted Airport 10 miles*
