What the owner says

The house originally dates to c1890, and it has evolved over time. It is very elegant and has beautiful character and the facilities have been modernised throughout. There are beautiful features, parquet flooring, ornate fireplaces, oak panelling and some stunning plaster-work and many original features. Modernisation has been carried out very sympathetically with quality double glazing throughout.

The house is only a short walk from Epping Forest which we consider an extension to our own garden and there is a good selection of schools and private schools close by too.

Property details

Connaught Avenue is an imposing family home that enjoys a prime location close to the thriving town centre of Loughton. “We moved to the property thirty-three years ago,” says the owner, “and in terms of what initially attracted us to it, was both the position and the character of the house. It's such a pretty house and it's also deceptively large”

The house has excellent proportions with an impressive wall at the front of the house with two double electric gates. The house is set back from the road and is quite and tranquil. The games room is particularly impressive with its domed ceiling and oak panelled walls and the Granny annex has been utilised as a gymnasium.

The house sits on a very generous plot, and the owners have maintained planning permission to build a detached four-bedroom house on the left side of the house but while in occupation preferred the house as it is at present.

The garden is very pretty with edged lawn and mature trees that are attractive and give privacy. There is a large swimming pool with a terraced gallery which is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The location is very peaceful and there is a wide selection of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Transport links are excellent with Loughton tube station on the Central Line only 0.35 miles away.

The size and the exceptional location all combine to make this house a lovely place to live and a very good investment for the future.
