A beautifully presented five bedroom, three bathroom family house set in approx. 8 acres with an outdoor swimming pool, stables, manege and paddocks, on the fringe of the village with access to fantastic outriding
We understand that the property dates back to the 1980’s since when it has been added to and developed over the years, with extensions to the main house, complete landscaping of the rear gardens, as well as the additions of the stables and the manege. The present owners have lived there for twenty-three years and the property has provided a wonderful family home.
Whilst being situated on the edge of the village, the property enjoys a high degree of privacy, with lovely views out over its own land to the beautiful countryside beyond. The property is ideal for private equestrian use and there is access to many miles of fantastic hacking around the local area.
The village has a popular pub which is owned by the villagers, whilst neighbouring Steeple Bumpstead has a primary school, shop and petrol station. Haverhill offers a good range of local amenities, supermarkets, banks etc, whilst more extensive ranges of amenities can be found further afield in Saffron Walden and Cambridge. The nearest mainline railway is at Audley End with regular services to London Liverpool Street station, which takes about an hour. The A11 dual carriageway is also easily accessible providing a fast link to the M11 and M25 motorways, and Stanstead Airport is approx. 16 miles.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
I really wanted to thank everyone at Rural Scene for the brilliant service you all gave during the sale of our farm. Everyone I spoke to was so polite and couldn't have been more helpful. Even when things got a bit stressful you sorted it all out for us. We will certainly recommend you to friends and should we move again, we will definitely use Rural scene again.
