Picturesque walks and perfect properties

By Denise Allen - 04 September 2015

With countless rural country lanes, meandering rivers and charming villages to explore, it would be rude not to don your walking boots, pack a picnic and head out to discover the wonderful picturesque sights Essex has to offer. Of course, the more adventurous types will leave the map, compass and all sense of direction at home, but if you fancy knowing when your next refreshment break might be, or where you are five miles in to your walk, these gorgeous homes are located near exciting routes that will help you get to know your home and its beautiful surroundings better. 

This beautiful six bedroom barn conversion, said to date back to the 16th century, is situated in the semi-rural location of Hatfield Brook Oak. A fantastic 11 mile route nearby guides you through the water meadows, alongside Pincey Brook, and into the National Trust’s Hatfield Forest – home to a large population of majestic Fallow and Muntjac deer. You will pass the fine dining pub, The Duke’s Head, along the way if you are in need of refreshment but if it should take more than a cold drink to cool you down, you can jump into your home’s very own outstanding indoor swimming pool.

This outstanding family home is available for £1,550,000 through our Great Dunmow branch. Please give them a call on 01371 876868 if you would like further information.

This three bedroom detached home on Vicarage Road in Roxwell is an extremely spacious property, which offers huge potential to expand. Navigational stiles help guide you on a short four mile walk past a scenic boating lake, Roxwell brook and even allow you meet a few stallions along the way in the horse paddock.  If the weather looks like it might take a turn for the worst, which, let’s face it, is probably likely here in England, the property’s conservatory has fantastic large windows that allow you to feel one with the great outdoors while cosying up on the sofa.

This property is available at a guide price of £675,000. If you would like to arrange a viewing, please contact our Writtle team on 01245 807302.

Situated close to Brentwood’s railway station and its vibrant High Street lies Glenridge House, a beautiful Victorian two bedroom flat conversion. The apartment benefits from its own patio area and private parking which is accessed through electronically operated gates. However, for those in need of a little bit of greenery, a leisurely five mile stroll through open farmland, along green lanes and Thorndon Country Park is right on your doorstep.

This property is available for £350,000. If you require close links to London but still want to live near the gorgeous Essex countryside, contact our Brentwood team on 01277 888624.

If you have a family who love to explore but would currently prefer to rent, this 17th century farmhouse with four bedrooms in the idyllic rural setting of Stebbing Ford is the perfect home for you. This property benefits from a stunning blend of character features with contemporary touches placed throughout, and it even has its own private gated entrance. Nearby is a great seven mile walk which takes you through vast open fields and past the Angel & Harp pub that offers a beautiful garden area to enjoy a glass of wine on a pleasant summer evening.

This property is available to rent for £2,200 per month through our Braintree team who can be contacted on 01376 388597.
