Property description

Edesigned in 1863 by the renowned architects J & J Sanderson, Barrington Hall is an archetypal
example of a large country house with fine fireplaces, high ceilings and exquisite detail to doors and internal joinery.

Upon entering you are greeted by a stone staircase which leads into an exceptional double height great hall. From this leads a drawing room with a period fireplace and mullioned windows overlooking the lake. To the east of the great hall is a beautifully proportioned library which then leads through to the dining room. Adjoining the inner hall is the sitting room and arches into the kitchen with doors flowing out onto the extensive terrace.

A magnificent staircase leads to the first floor with a gallery landing overlooking the great hall. Landing doors lead into the master bedroom suite with two bathrooms, one with extensive built in wardrobes and a separate spacious dressing room. There are two further bedroom suites and two further bedrooms, sharing a family bathroom. A door at the far east side of the landing gives access to the two bedroom apartment. The second floor has two further bedrooms, bathroom and large living area with cloak room. Above the apartment is an open plan split-level games room/reception room.

Barrington Hall is approached over a long gravel driveway through mature woodland. To the east of the house is a courtyard with a swimming pool, which is a perfect entertaining area with the tennis court lying just beyond. The ornamental lake sits due south of the house with a boathouse and a private Cabu. There is also a stable yard, tack room, outdoor manége and a number of paddocks. To the east of the house The Coach House and Bungalow.

Arrington Hall sits within a delightful spot on the Essex/Hertfordshire borders, set within its own 32.85 acres with good communications to London, International airports and major road links for either the M25 or M11 motorway. The nearby village of Hatfield Broad Oak offers a local rural lifestyle with a post office, shop and 2 public houses. The larger centres of Bishop's Stortford and Sawbridgeworth are 7 and 4 miles respectively. Commuter mainline stations providing a regular service to London (Liverpool Street) are available at Bishop's Stortford, Sawbridgeworth and Stansted Airport, which is a 6-mile country drive giving access to the Stansted Express, which leaves every 15 minutes and takes approximately 46 minutes to Liverpool Street. Central London is about 38 miles by road.
