Setting & Location
Positioned on a quiet country lane within two acres(stls) of glorious grounds and surrounded by far reaching countryside scenery this wonderful property enjoys a rural setting on the fringes of the historic and sought after Essex village of Pleshey.
Pleshey is a small, historic village set around the site of a former motte and bailey castle that was once the ancestral home of Geoffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex and one of the 25 Magna Carta barons. Although the village has traditionally been an agricultural community, many modern residents are commuters, and the attractive appearance of the village and the castle draws many admirers.
The village lies to the northeast of Chelmsford, which was awarded city status in 2012 and offers a wide variety of facilities including a bustling shopping centre and a choice of excellent private and state schools. It can also boast superb transport links, with a station on the main line to Liverpool Street and access onto the A12. It is also circa seven miles from the popular and historic market town of Great Dunmow which boasts an array of shops and restaurants.
The highly recommended village pub (the Leather Bottle), Holy Trinity Church and the Village Hall are the hub of the community, with a general store, post office and primary school in the nearby village of Great Waltham, and other primary schools in Little Waltham and Ford End.
Felsted School is circa a five mile drive from the property with Newhall School circa eight miles away.
