Description

Apartment 7 is nestled within the remarkable Congregation House, a Gothic revival masterpiece from the 19th century. With almost 2,000 square feet of living space, this property is truly extraordinary. Carefully designed to harmonize with the building's stunning architecture, Apartment 7 captivates with its seamless integration of the dramatic historical features. Upon entering through arched doors into the communal entrance, you catch glimpses of the intricate ecclesiastical elements on display.



To reach Apartment 7, ascend the ornate heavy timber staircase, leading to a lobby dominated by a floor-to-ceiling stone mullion window. A modern steel staircase guides you to the property's front door. As you step inside, the entrance hall guides you towards the breathtaking open-plan living area beneath a remarkable vaulted ceiling adorned with intricately carved braces and exposed rafters. The sheer scale of this room is awe-inspiring, creating an unparalleled entertainment space thoughtfully divided into cozy living zones.



Upon entering, a contemporary kitchen greets you on the left, complementing the space perfectly. Abundant light fills the kitchen through two Velux windows, with the southern windows offering exceptional views, especially during sunsets. On the opposite end of the living room, a snug sitting area invites you to unwind and soak in the property's ambiance. A well-positioned dining area between the kitchen and sitting room provides ample space for entertaining around a large table. The owners' favorite spot is the snug area within an awe-inspiring stone mullion arch, featuring stained glass windows and a vaulted ceiling.



A spiral staircase ascends to a mezzanine with seating and a balcony overlooking the main living area. From here, you step into another extraordinary room, which showcases the roof design's exquisite craftsmanship. This spacious bedroom offers potential for a bathroom addition (subject to approvals), making it an ideal primary bedroom. Two Velux windows offer views of the bell tower's intricate masonry and the serene open countryside surrounding Halstead Town.



The remaining accommodation branches off the entrance hall. The principal bedroom boasts ample space and an elegant en-suite that complements the property's period charm. Across the hall, the third bedroom includes a walk-in wardrobe, and a delightful family bathroom with a shower over the bath completes the layout. Additional storage is available in a dedicated room, providing ample space for shelving and housing the hot water cylinder and boiler.



Congregation House rests at the heart of historic Halstead, conveniently connected to Essex and Suffolk via excellent road links. The property, accessed via a horseshoe drive that winds through manicured communal gardens, offers two parking spaces and a nearby visitor bay. The gardens are maintained through a residents' management charge of £153 per month. The property boasts a long lease of 980 years, with each resident holding an equal share of the freehold.



Halstead High Street is a short walk away, offering an array of independent shops, restaurants, pubs, as well as popular chains like Sainsbury's, Costa, and Greggs. Larger towns such as Sudbury, Braintree, and Chelmsford are easily accessible within 45 minutes, providing various amenities. Commuting options by rail are plentiful, with Braintree, Witham, and Marks Tey offering regular services to London, with an average travel time of around 1 hour.
