- £9,295,000 14 0 0 Planning number EPF/1299/15 Dating back to the late 16th century, with further remodelling in 1800 Arabin house is a spectacular Grade II Listed white stucco fronted residence, that is set in approximately 11 acres of stunning, mature grounds within the heart of Epping Forest. The Arabin Estate incorporates four separate dwellings totalling close to 15,000 sq ft with planning permission granted to extend further if so desired. The estate also includes a beautiful detached Grade II listed cottage featuring four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms and kitchen breakfast room; a detached coach house including a large living room, good sized kitchen breakfast room and on the first floor a good sized bedroom and bathroom, a newly constructed eight car garage block which is air conditioned with the first floor providing three large rooms above also air conditioned and perfect for a gymnasium and games room. Arabin house is currently divided into two residences (Arabin House and Beech Hill house). The current owner has brought back together the original Arabin estate. Planning permission has been granted to bring together the two houses and adding two breath taking wings to create an elegant Georgian home with bespoke modern luxury. The new home created will use the original Georgian entrance with the Victorian front extension being demolished. The# active planning permission granted is to remodel and extend the property to circa 11,840 square feet above ground. There is an extensive rear terrace with the permission granting an impressive outdoor swimming pool. The property is approached via two separate entrances both with secure and remote controlled gates that open onto the shingle driveway leading down to the courtyard parking and driveway to the front of the main house. The extensive grounds with beautiful gardens and an abundance of mature borders create a delightfully secluded setting for the house. The gardens are a delight and are teaming with flowering plants and well-established shrubs and woodland trees such as Yew, Fir, Pine, Willow, Horse Chestnut, Oak, Hazel and Silver, which add a wonderful fragrance when in flower. Features such as the pergola and thatched folly by the pond with decking surround invite guests to linger. The pond has been made from a former Victorian swimming pool that can be restored as a natural swimming pool with minimal effort. A stable block is found to the rear boundary, providing the perfect opportunity for the keen equestrian to explore the many magical paths found in the 100 s of acres Epping Forest has to offer. Alternatively, additional dwellings could be added and hidden from the main house subject to the relevant planning permission. Despite its rural setting, The Arabin Estate is very well positioned for easy access to the motorway network via the M25, which links with the M1 (for the north), and the M11. Loughton Station is also within 2 miles away with London Underground (Central Line) trains to London Liverpool Street from 38 minutes and Canary Wharf from 43 minutes (Central and Jubilee Line). High Beech, Loughton is a delightful rural hamlet popular with commuters and those who seek to combine access to countryside with the convenience of excellent transport links and local facilities.
