Take a look at 4 stunning Essex properties with annexes...
The Garden House
This very appealing five-bedroom residence is set within elevated grounds of just over two acres (stls), enjoying panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The property benefits from a newly-built detached bungalow/self-contained annexe within the grounds which would ideally suit those seeking to acquire a property with young or elderly relatives requiring their own accommodation. The road qualifies for free school transport to the excellent local catchment schools of Quilters and Billericay High School.
Guide price: 1,790,000

Formerly a public house, The Old Lamb probably dates back to the early Victorian period. Over the years The Old Lamb has been much improved and extended and now incorporates a rebuilt barn providing additional ground and first floor accommodation. With flexibility in mind, plumbing has been laid on in the gym which could be utilised for a kitchen, thereby creating a self-contained annexe. Presented in good order, the versatile and varied living accommodation extends to 3,592sq ft.

Lea Lane Wood
Lea Lane Wood has accommodation arranged over two storeys with the principal rooms enjoying southerly views. At the head of the drive is a comfortable, modern, two-storey Lodge Cottage, again, very well presented. Surrounding the house, extending to about nine acres, are charming gardens, opening into meadows which back onto open countryside with a belt of woodland giving privacy and seclusion to this exceptional home.

Chevers Hall is delightfully presented following a sympathetic programme of restoration and improvement. Works have included the amalgamation of a single-storey barn, which is linked to the main house. The annexe, which has been converted from a former granary, is of split-level design providing a sitting room, kitchen and bedroom independent to the main house. Chevers Hall is located between Chipping Ongar and Chelmsford.
