5 Bedroom Mews House for sale in Trueloves Lane, Ingatestone
VICTORIAN - Trueloves Manor occupies a major part of Trueloves House, a superb example of a neo-Gothic Manor House designed by William White in the late 1800's, spanning almost 4,500 sq ft in the delightful countryside of Ingatestone.
This particular home boasts exceptional ceiling heights of over 4m to the principal areas, with the most divine period features restored to the finest of standards owing to an almost 10-year renovation.
Upon arrival to the private gated estate, a second private electric gate provides further security and access to the sizeable, private driveway, with ample parking and a detached double garage, with inviting garden areas spanning the frontage of this classic home. The astounding architecture is enjoyed immediately upon arrival, with yellow and gault brickwork punctuating the expanse of intricately designed red brick façade with stone detailing.
Moving inside, an oversized entrance door gives access to a grand hallway, commencing with a panelled, high-ceilinged corridor, which in turn leads to the main, central entrance hall, a magnificent space providing access to all reception spaces, and with a striking galleried landing running above. Adjacent to the hallway and accessed via a selection of archways sits a wonderful reading area with lantern roof, with secondary access door from an additional parking area.
The reception spaces are a sheer delight, comprised of a drawing room with bespoke library wall, leading to a sizeable study. In line with modern living styles, the kitchen/dining room provides an open-plan living area with two magnificent original windows - the larger of the two enjoying a window seat - and a grand fireplace with wood-burning stove creates an elegant centrepiece to the room. The kitchen is highly specified and well-fitted in a complementary style. A basement level provides an additional reception area with natural light, ideal as a hobby space, playroom, or cinema room. A plant room also occupies this level.
