In Focus - Issue 05

By Alex D'Andrea - 02 November 2018

This month, we are focusing on the historic market town of Great Dunmow which along with its surrounding villages, offers the perfect of blend of country and convenience. With Stansted Airport nearby and great road links north and south thanks to M11 and the A120 east – west, this area is really underrated. What's more, the commuter links are second to none. Both Braintree and Bishops Stortford railway stations go straight into Liverpool Street on different lines in around an hour or less, along with the Stansted Express line going to the city as well.

A great family day out in Great Dunmow would be to visit the Gardens of Easton Lodge or to go and see a piece of history at the Dunmow Maltings & Museum. Both offer the family an opportunity to sample a slice of true history, restoration and characterful architecture.

Another much-loved outing is Hatfield Forest with its beautiful wildlife and numerous activities running on a daily basis. Residents love to come here to discover cherished wildflowers, see historic gardens, take part in forest trails ideal for walking or riding your bike, and indulge in its annual festival called Wood Fest.

The High Street is one of the few remaining High Streets where the majority of shops are independents. There is a diverse assortment, from fashion and beauty to furniture and homewares, as well as your staples such as chemists, opticians and butchers.

Furthermore, Great Dunmow has an excellent choice of schools including; Dunmow St Mary’s Primary School, Great Dunmow Primary School & Felsted School.

If you’re looking for property in and around Great Dunmow, Beresfords has a wide selection available.

Enviably situated, this extended family home enjoys open views to front and rear, yet is approximately 1 mile from the centre of the much sought after village of Felsted, which is renowned for its prep and senior school.

To the first floor are four bedrooms, a dressing area and a bath/shower room which serves bedroom one. The dressing area could easily provide the fifth bedroom. Again there is flexibility in how the first floor accommodation can be used, as it is accessed by two staircases, therefore there is the scope to create annexed accommodation, if required. Another feature of the property is the rear garden, which enjoys an excellent degree of privacy and borders onto a lake and farmland. There is a heated swimming pool and a spacious paved patio area for barbecuing and eating al-fresco.
