A spectacular setting amidst the historic woodland of Epping Forest, yet just a ten minute drive to Loughton town centre and central line tube station for the city commute.
This outstanding, character six bedroom detached home sits proudly on its plot approaching half an acre set back from the lane behind a secure gated entrance with forest views directly to the front and rear.
The accommodation extends over five floors from a vast basement area with very tall ceiling to bedrooms and living space on the ground, first and second floor with a further loft room on the fourth floor.
The ground floor features an impressive reception hall with central turning staircase rising to a large galleried landing. A drawing room extends across the rear of the house overlooking the gardens and there is a further family/sitting room.
The spacious fitted kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive range of contemporary base and eye level units with granite work tops and breakfast bar, an electric range cooker and split level oven and microwave.
An open aspect leads through to a stunning dining room with bi-fold doors on to the patio and a vaulted ceiling with triple Velux ceiling lights.
There is a good size utility/laundry room with extensive storage, separate w.C. And a further guest cloakroom approached from the reception hall.
On the first floor the bright galleried landing has forest views to the front and leads to four bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities.
On the second floor the master bedroom suite has a lovely balcony with forest views and includes a substantial walk-in wardrobe/dressing area and a separate dressing room/nursery and an en-suite bathroom/shower/w.C. With whirlpool bath.
The second bedroom on this floor also has an en-suite shower/wc.
The loft room on the third floor offers the opportunity of a games/hobbies room with rear garden aspect and partial restricted height ceiling.
Externally, beyond the electric security gates there is a large gravel drive leading to a triple open cart lodge.
The rear garden comprises an expansive full width patio with up-lighting, perfect for entertaining and al-fresco dining. This overlooks the lawned gardens and woodland beyond.
Adjacent to the house is a large garden/machinery store with triple roof lights. Towards the rear of the garden we are advised that a redundant outbuilding provides the opportunity for a possible annex/multi-purpose building under permitted development rights. This would require verification from Epping Forest Planning Office.
