Offered for sale for the first time in over 20 years with a complete onward chain this established and well presented detached family home sits back from the road behind a secure gated entrance in private and secluded grounds of over 9.5 acres with formal gardens, paddock and woodland. Its enviable and highly sought after position is close to the renowned Elm Green Preparatory School and Heathcote Schools in Danbury. The property currently provides over 2800 sq. foot of living accommodation which includes five bedrooms, two bathrooms, separate shower room, two large reception rooms, conservatory, fitted kitchen/diner and large utility room with separate boot room and boiler room. Outside there is a detached double garage, stable block with 3 stables and tack room, tennis court, covered and enclosed hot tub and an outdoor walled garden with heated swimming pool and summer house.
