The Manor House occupies a delightful location on the edge of the village of Stansted Mountfitchet at the end of a long private driveway. The immediate area has a predominantly rural feel, yet the house is within walking distance of a mainline station with services to London and Cambridge and about 2.5 miles from junction 8 of the M11. The oldest part of this handsome three storey house dates back to the 17th century, but it is predominantly Victorian with mellow red brick under a slate roof and has considerable character. The floor plan shows the layout which includes a lower ground floor where here is a kitchen, utility room and two cellars, which could provide additional accommodation. On the other side there is an annexe with a reception room and a kitchen. On the ground floor there is a reception hall, a grand drawing room, dining room, study, sun room and ground floor shower room. On the first floor there are six bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and a three bedroom annexe with a bathroom. A staircase leads to the second floor, where there are three further bedrooms.
The property lies in a parkland setting with specimen trees and a hard tennis court. There is an extensive gravel parking area to the front of the house and within the grounds, there are adjoining outbuildings which provide generous storage.
The Coach House has historically been granted planning consent for residential accommodation and works started some years ago.
In one corner of the grounds and shown hatched blue on the plan is a large outbuilding which has planning consent to convert into a single storey dwelling of over 2000 sq ft.
