Petty Son & Prestwich are proud to present Chipstead House; an elegant FIVE BEDROOM family home set on a large plot, built circa 1810 with later additions in 1837. The property retains much charm and character befitting its era including ceiling coving, beautiful bay sash windows and fireplaces.
This elegant home was previously known as Forest Cottage, to which a substantial refurbishment took place between 1837 and 1851 resulting in the house which stands today with 2716 sq ft approx. of accommodation. On approach, one is immediately impressed by the attractive bayed façade of the building, set behind wrought iron railings and a pathway leading through the lawns with a beautiful Magnolia tree. The entrance hall with black and white tiled flooring leads into the reception hallway, boasting a superb stained glass window, original fire surround, full height fitted cupboard and a guest cloakroom with white suite. There are two reception rooms, both featuring sash bay windows, ceiling coving and roses. The magnificent drawing room of 28' X 20' leads into a large double glazed, heated conservatory enjoying garden views, whilst the dining room features the original marble fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with base and wall cabinets with space for electric appliances and leads into the gardens.
On the first floor there is a large landing with carved spindle balustrading serving the five spacious bedrooms, four with fireplaces. A family shower room with white suite completes the accommodation. Externally there are well stocked gardens of some 82ft commencing with a patio area leading to the lawns, bordered with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs with fish pond at the rear. The driveway serves a brick built detached garage with hay loft (formerly the stable) offering a huge amount of space and development potential (subject to the usual planning consents). Chipstead House lies on the edge of Epping Forest. For the commuter Woodford Central Line Station is 1.3 miles away. The North Circular Road, M11 and M25 are within a short drive. A good range of well-regarded schools are close by, including the much sought after Bancroft's.
