Close to the village of Stambridge, this prestigious property oozes historic character and charm, with internal features matching the impressive kerb appeal.

Where do we start to describe a property as prestigious and premium as this?

The history, perhaps. Moats and Springs dates back to the 17th century but would be unrecognisable to its forebears.

Externally, the property is set in splendid isolation from Stambridge Road, yet is only just 5 miles from Southend-on-Sea, with journeys to London taking under an hour by train from Rochford. Surrounded by the flat Essex countryside, it has uninterrupted vistas from all angles, with Essex being one of the sunniest and driest places in the UK.

A long, gravelled road leads down a hedged driveway from the five-barred gate to the home itself, where the promise of greatness does not disappoint. A pitched porch entrance hall with oak door, ornate wooden and brick detailing hints at the promise within.

The main reception room has beams across the impressive brick focal point of the fireplace with inset multifuel stove, grandly punctuated by vertical, angular beams that speak of its historical significance. This beautiful uniformity continues throughout the home. A dining room has its own focal point of brick fireplace, with French doors inviting you outside. Cast iron radiators draw the eye too, along with the beamed ceilings.

A sitting room, suitable as home office, is bathed in natural light from its three windows with a door leading to an inner hallway, staircase, the lounge, kitchen, exceptional shower room and utility room.

The kitchen is fully fitted with flagged, stone floor and cabinetry that matches the aesthetic throughout, including a breakfast bar and floating island cabinet. The separate laundry / utility room is flagged too, with quirky features like a cylindrical wine rack and space for white goods, along with a butler sink and butcher's block.

The joys continue upstairs with a characterful staircase with glass screening, sloping ceilings and bricked and beamed walls, leading to four bedrooms, three with bespoke fitted storage and dormer views over the landscaped gardens. Each is carpeted, with beams and low feature exposed walls, marking its age and period charms.

An impressive shower room and bathroom completes the first floor footprint, with the bathroom having a copper slipper bath, with ornate taps fixed to the tiled walls.

Outside, the delights continue with patio areas, inset lawn, bridge, well and ornamental pond as well as two outbuildings, a triple detached garage, along with a barn, ripe for conversion, subject to the usual planning consents.

Rural beauty with expansive grounds and a premium interior, what's not to love about Moats and Springs, Stambridge?
