About our home

Beautiful quaint home in the Essex countryside, moments from Stansted Airport and less than an hour from Central London.
Large 4 double bedroom property with original beams and rustic fireplaces. 3 bathrooms, one is an en suite with a bath, another with a large jacuzzi bath and shower, and a smaller one with just a shower.

Lots of garden and Land, with large heated out door swimming pool, un-used stables, terrace with table and chairs.
A gym room above the garage (Cross trainer, treadmill, workout bench, weights, medicine ball, punch bag) with separate toilet and also has a single bed.
Also have 2 cycling bikes!

Very quiet and serene, with nothing but trees and land surrounding.
The village has only a local pub which is very cosy and friendly.
The house is 5 minutes from the nearest town of Great Dunmow which has a large supermarket and lots of independant shops.
The house is also 40 minutes drive from Cambridge, the historic town with excellent shopping and beautiful architecture.

My daughter (if she decides to travel with us on the exchange) has a one bedroom flat in East London which she may be willing to lend for a couple of nights included in the exchange). It is in a really trendy arty area of London with excellent night life, great markets and galleries and lots to do.

We are a family of four, our home is cosy but spacious and nice and clean.
