BACKGROUND AND HISTORY The house, which is built of brick with weather-boarded upper elevations under a tiled roof featuring a number of dormer windows, is understood to have been built some 40 years ago and lies off a private road serving 2 other properties close to the Village Green in the heart of the village but totally screened from the village by an established belt of trees. To find a private setting yet be so close to the centre of the village makes the property somewhat remarkable. The house stands well, the majority of the garden and the paddocks lying to the rear. The house is well presented throughout and provides comfortable and versatile accommodation. Part is designed as an Annexe. There is good relationship between the house and its grounds, there being good access from one to the other and many of the rooms enjoying the prospect onto the garden to the paddocks beyond.
SETTING AND LOCATION The house occupies a central village location and within a short walk is the Post Office, tea rooms, Public House, refurbished Guildhall and Church and a little further away is the Village School. Finchingfield is the centre of a lively community and home to a wide selection of clubs and societies. The historic town of Saffron Walden provides shopping facilities and schooling and the same can be found in Great Dunmow and Braintree, the last being home to Freeport Shopping Centre. The countryside surrounding the village is largely agricultural, gently undulating and acknowledged as some of the prettiest in the County of Essex as captured by artists such as Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, John Aldridge and others of the nearby Great Bardfield School. Stansted Airport, which offers an increasing range of domestic, European and now global destinations, is within easy reach, as is the M11 which provides good access southwards to the M25 and London and northwards to Cambridge and beyond
