HISTORY AND BACKGROUND This stunning late 16th Century red brick Manor House with impressive 5000 sq ft of accommodation, occupying three floors plus cellar rooms and offered with 6.25 acres of part walled grounds with a further 6.5 adjoining acres available, strictly by separate negotiation.

The property enjoys a long entrance approach (initially shared with The Brew House), to an extensive private courtyard.

The house has been sympathetically restored and improved over the years, whilst retaining many exquisite period features which enhance its historical and magical ambience, combined with modern day living conveniences. Planning permission is granted 19/00329/FUL to open the kitchen to a far larger living space with the demolition of existing extension and construction of a new single store side extension.

Numerous outbuildings include courtyard stabling (offering potential to convert), extensive garaging, an enclosed pool house and machinery stores. There is also a modern tennis court and facilities for grazing.

The property enjoys a long entrance approach (initially shared with The Brew House), to an extensive private courtyard.



SETTING AND LOCATION The property is nestled in the very heart of its former country estate grounds, where there are two immediate neighbouring country properties (formerly the grain barn and brew house to Great Graces) which present as an attractive small enclave with an impressive entrance approach with undisturbed, elevated views across its own part walled, manicured gardens and fields and The Chelmer Valley beyond.

Great Graces is a prominent, historical local landmark, noted for its elegant architecture featuring a Dutch Gable/turreted like (moulded brick coping) to its south end, and also for Graces Walk; an ancient track (still part owned by Great Graces) which provides a very scenic public bridle access on the edge of a Nature Conservation Zone and Special Landscape Area.

Its enviable location is close to the renowned Elm Green Preparatory and Heathcote Schools in Little Baddow and Danbury, yet equally well placed for the City of Chelmsford and A12 access, from the A414 at Sandon, where there is also the park and ride site.
