Built in 1964, this substantial private residence, now arranged over three floors, offers five double bedrooms, four bathrooms, three reception rooms and extended kitchen breakfast room as the main rooms of the house.
On the ground floor you are greeted by a grand entrance lobby leading to the reception rooms, where you will discover a characterful formal living room with a feature fireplace, large picture frame window (overlooking the garden) and a pair of inset stain glass leaded windows.
The second reception room is an inviting dining room perfect for creating those memories of special family occasions like birthdays and Christmas.
The third reception is a delightful sunny room with its French patio doors leading to the garden, which makes this room the perfect spot for some quiet time to read a book, or simply enjoy a morning coffee looking out onto the garden.
Last, but no means least, of the main rooms in the house is a fantastic kitchen breakfast room, extended in 2014, which now boasts a beautiful range cooker sitting pride of place, as well as a separate utility room and French patio doors leading out to the well-kept, south-west facing, walled garden. There is also a cloakroom on this floor and storage in the lobby.
Taking the wide staircase to the first floor leads you to three of the double bedrooms, all with built in storage. There is also a family bathroom on this floor with separate WC, along with a further shower room also with separate WC.
Moving up to the second floor, converted in 2011, there are a further two double bedrooms and two more bathrooms (one en-suite), as well as eaves access.
The outside space includes a front garden with lawn, paved path and steps to the front of the house, as well as mature trees, gravelled drive either side of the front garden providing parking and a detached garage. There is also dedicated visitor parking within the gates of the secluded private road.
To the rear of the house is a charming walled garden with a seated patio area, lawn, mature shrubs and trees, as well as a covered wooden pergola. The secure gate to the rear of the garden leads to a real hidden gem, which is the extensive grounds of the local cricket club. This is the perfect place to sit and watch the cricket on a lazy summers afternoon.
The current owner says these grounds are protected from any further development by the Buxton Trust who are the landowners. Beyond the cricket club in the distance is Epping Forest Deer Sanctuary home to a herd of black fallow deer, the sanctuary covers approximately 140 acres. Epping Forest provides some amazing nature trails and weekend walks.
Situated just off the village green, Pedlers Folly is well situated and just a short walk to Theydon Bois Underground Station. Theydon Bois is on the Central Line, which carries passengers from Essex, through Central London and out to West London. Theydon Bois is also just a short drive to the M25 Motorway, as well as the popular Essex suburbs of Loughton and Chigwell.
Theydon Bois is proud of its village like status and heritage, flanked by Epping Forest, and even to this day remains one of the few villages that doesnt have street lights in England.
THE CURRENT OWNERS VIEW
Having lived in Theydon Bois all of their lives, the current owners realised that this house was by far one of the most desirable in the Village and hoped it might one day become available. Luckily for them, it did, and they were in a position to be able to buy it some 16 years ago. The private, extremely quiet location was always a draw for them and not forgetting the views across the cricket grounds, Deer Sanctuary and Epping Forest.
They feel so lucky to have owned a house that was not only incredibly well built and conveniently situated, but also the most picturesque and perfect place to be.
