Amid a half-acre plot edged by trees, this Five (potentially Seven) Bedroom Detached House has improved its carbon footprint courtesy of an A-Class Air Source Heat Pump, itself assisted by the electricity generated by solar panels up on the South facing Roof.

The property enjoys a lovely semi-rural setting on the Ingatestone Road within the Green Belt area of Stock, the rear garden also backing directly onto 'Stock Brook' itself.

It is a spacious family home, extended several times over the years, including more recently with a hugely impressive, two storey Oak framed glazed Atrium added to the front elevation, increasing the size of the Main Entrance, and enhancing its kerb appeal, as well as bathing the Hall and 1st Floor Landing in light.

The present accommodation briefly comprises the aforementioned double height Porch/Atrium, which is open plan to the long Hallway, itself opening up at the West Wing into a two desk Study area, a rear Lounge with a large window enjoying the garden view, a separate Dining Room featuring a recessed full height Glass Display Cabinet, a further Reception Room (presently used as a small cinema room), the gorgeous big 'Hub-of-the-Home' open plan Kitchen/Diner/Family Room boasting White Quartz topped White Gloss kitchen units and a large Granite topped Island, a huge adjoining Utility/Laundry Room and a ground floor WC Room to the ground floor, with upstairs the five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two Loft Rooms offering on (two ensuite and the main bathroom).

A bespoke Triple Bay Oak framed Garage/Carport/Workshop holds two large cars with the block paved Front Drive taking another six cars with ease. The well tendered grounds extend all round, with the main lawns to the South facing Rear and West facing side.

The Accommodation

The wide, chunky, beautiful Oak Front Door, incorporated within the 20ft tall Oak Atrium, designed to bring extra light into the north side of the house, swings open to:


Constructed by Messrs 'Prime Oak' from seasoned, air-dried Oak Beams, the dramatic double height glazed Gable end Atrium floods in light both into the now increased size Hall as well as through the glass balustrades of the Landing above.

Large stone tiles extend into the East wing, gorgeous wood flooring runs off to the West wing and stylish contemporary internal doors add to the premium look.

An abundance of storage is provided by a large walk-in Cupboard at one end, Cream Gloss fronted fitted cupboards the other end and a built-in Meter Cupboard as you enter.

STUDY AREA 14ft 2' x 5ft 9' (4.3m x 1.75m)

Two full height windows at each end bring in lots of working light to this well used Home Office.


A big downstairs Cloakroom featuring an attractive Walnut effect wall hung Vanity unit backed by striking split face tiling, along with a back-to-wall WC and a window giving plenty of light.

LOUNGE 24ft 4' x 13ft 1' (7.4m x 4m)

Upon entering, the eye will be drawn to the massive window which gazes out over the Garden with its treescape backdrop.

The centrepiece within the room is the 'Bodart and Gonay' Multifuel built-in cassette Stove Fire, offering low CO2 emissions and high efficiency, warming very large spaces like this big family friendly Living Room.

The same wood flooring in the Hall is found here as well as the Dining Room, proving warmth and character and fitted shelving at the far end will hold many a book or large ornament.

DINING ROOM 13ft 1' x 9ft 10' (4m x 3m)

The focal point of this room is the large, recessed glass display cabinet with glass double doors and shelving.

CINEMA ROOM 13ft 1' x 10ft 3' (4m x 3.1m)

A versatile extra reception room.

The Vendors projector screen lowers down in front of the New York Mural, the Projector, and its screen available by separate Negotiation.

KITCHEN/BREAKFAST/FAMILY ROOM 25ft 3' x 20ft 1' (7.7m x 6.1m)

The style Hub-of-the-Home featuring White Quartz topped White Gloss Kitchen units from 'Crown Wood Kitchens', Twin NEFF Multi-function Ovens, Twin Warming Drawers, a sleek black Induction Hob sitting below a swish Angled Extractor Fan, a neat undercounter sink and a host of smart storage systems like recycling bins and corner carousels.

The large Island holds a second sink and is topped this time with black Granite, the adjoining contrasting timber Breakfast Bar providing seating for four.

As part of the Kitchen extension, an Oak glazed roof was put on the projection, which along with the Bi-fold doors, further fully glazed external door and the glazing within the other windows, makes for a sun drenched room, especially as it is South facing.

Further features worthy of note is the beautiful porcelain floor tiles, recessed display niche in the informal dining area, LED plinth lighting and the six contemporary brushed steel spherical pendant lights which hang down over the Island and Dining area.

OPEN PLAN UTILITY/LAUNDRY/BOOT ROOM 16ft 9' x 10ft 6' (5.1m x 3.2m)

Essentially two big Utility Rooms with a range of units matching those in the Kitchen and both with windows for natural lights

The first area is fitted out as the Utility Room and incorporates a double Butler sink and spaces for the usual appliances.

The second area has a run of full height matching fitted cupboards housing the mains pressure hot water cylinder, Manifold for the Underfloor Heating in the Kitchen, Ground floor WC, Utility Room and the new projecting Atrium, and the Oil Fired Boiler (to assist the Air Source Heath Pump during very cold spells) and a fully glazed external door opening out to the east grounds.

Note: The 16kW Air Source Heat Pump serves the hot water and central heating. A 400L insulated Hot Water Cylinder tops the heat up on the hot water, as Air Source Heat Pumps typically work on lower temperatures. In addition, the Vendor has retained the Oil Fired Worcester Boiler as a back up, in case of very cold spells (minus zero). Essentially this is a hybrid heating system that combines an air source heat pump with an oil boiler. The oil boiler used to 'top-up' the low temperature heat pump to meet the heating demands of the property during especially cold spells.

Straight staircase with glass balustrading runs up to:

1st FLOOR LANDING 40ft x 11ft max, narrowing to 7ft (12.2m x 3.35 > 2.2m)

As previously mentioned within the Hall, the focal point is the full height projecting Oak glazed Porch/Atrium, which floods light across and over the Galleried Landing, the glass balustrades looking down over the Travertine flooring below. Even more light comes in through two further windows as well.

One of the internal doors open to reveal the full height airing cupboard.

MASTER BEDROOM 18ft 2' x 14ft 6' (5.5m x 4.4m)

A spacious principal bedroom with a clever freestanding wall giving separation to a run of five Light Grey Gloss Double Wardrobes behind. Of course, this could be removed to open up the bedroom even more, but we think this works very well as it is, giving fabulous uncluttered hidden storage.

The new light grey carpet is so soft underfoot and two rear windows enjoy a pleasant outlook over the Garden with its tall trees backdrop.

Sliding 'Pocket' doors disappear into the wall, leaving a 5ft 3' wide opening leading through to:

ENSUITE BATHROOM 17ft 9' x 9ft

The ultimate in luxury, the deep and spacious, freestanding 'Ashton & Bentley' Bath provides a stunning focal point.

Matching 'His and Hers' White Gloss, Chrome and dark wood effect Vanity units with stylish oval basins, also by Ashton & Bentley', at each end of the room also add to the luxury feel.

There is also a 'hidden' WC area and a large 1200mm x 860mm walk-in Shower with both a big Rainhead Showerhead and a separate handset too.

Further features of this lavish designer style Bathroom include contrasting hued premium Porcelain tiling, two tall chrome towel radiators, a quiet Extractor Fan and two windows streaming in plenty of light.

BEDROOM TWO 18ft 6' narrowing to 14ft 3' x 9ft 10' min (5.6m > 4.3m x 3m)

Another good sized rear double bedroom with a very large 6ft 7' ((2m) built-in wardrobe incorporating fitted drawers inside.

ENSUITE 10ft x 2ft 10' (3m x 0.86m)

Metallic copper look tiling makes a real style statement to this second Ensuite which has a White Gloss wall hung Vanity Unit, back-to-wall WC and a 1000mm x 860mm Shower with a fixed Shower head and separate handset.

A light up mirror and chrome shaver socket complete the specification.

BEDROOM FIVE 12ft 2' x 8ft (3.7m x 2.4m)

* You may have noticed we have switched round Bedrooms Four & Five. This is because Bedroom Five is off Bedroom Three *

Bedroom Five here has varnished floorboards and is well lit by two windows as it is dual aspect. We thought it would make the perfect little Lounge or Gaming Room for the occupier of the main bedroom adjacent.

BEDROOM FOUR 12ft 5' x 9ft 3' (3.8m x 2.8m)

Another dual aspect bedroom, this one with a large 6ft 3' x 2ft 6' (1.9m x 0.76m) walk-in understairs cupboard.

MAIN BATHROOM 10ft 5' x 6ft 5' (3.2m x 2m)

A beautifully appointed Bathroom with gorgeous gloss tiling and both a Bath and a separate Shower Cubicle too. The shower with its 'Rain' Showerhead and separate handset measures 3ft 9' x 2ft 10' (1100mm x 860mm).

Further features of this rear facing Bathroom include chrome waste to the Basin, chrome curved towel radiator, mirror with two wall lights and a Shaver socket.

SEPARATE WC ROOM 9ft maximum x 3ft 3' (2.74m x 1m)

A handy additional WC room fitted with a ‘Heritage' white two piece suite. With shiny porcelain floor tiles, chrome towel radiator, inset downlighting and a front facing obscure glass window for some natural daylight.

A huge loft room with a 6ft 10' ceiling height, deep pile white carpet, two radiators, five eaves storage cupboards and four skylight windows.

LOFT BEDROOM SEVEN 11ft 6' x 9ft 3' (3.5m x 2.8m)

This room is also nice and bright, having both a side facing window as well as a rear facing skylight.

Within this room are three eaves storage cupboards.


As you turn into Ingatestone Road, the first house on the left is Stratton house. The second is this one - Fairmead.

Here you will see a block paved bridge going over the stream between the house and the road.

A remote controlled metal sliding gate gently rolls aside, with the block paving running on as the drive for the property, providing parking for six vehicles with ease.

On the left is the detached 3-Bay Oak Framed Carport/Garage/Workshop, with a pitched tiled roof, comprising

CART LODGE 17ft 7' x 8ft 5' (5.4m x 2.6m) With an internal light and security light

GARAGE 17ft 10' x 8ft 8' (5.4m x 2.65m) With timber double doors, two fluorescent lights and power sockets.

A 4ft wide side gate leads through to the garden, and also the workshop.

WORKSHOP 17ft 7' x 8ft 9' (5.4m x 2.7m) Fully ready for action, the workshop has a fitted workbench across the far wall with four power sockets, further sockets, and lighting, shelving and a 4ft 3' wide door, allowing the sit-on mower to be driven out with ease.

An open hatch in the ceiling, provides access to the loft which runs across all three bays and has been fully boarded, therefore providing a superb storage facility.

Just outside the workshop, in this tucked away part of the garden, is the 16kW Air source heat pump and the 550 gallon oil tank.


The property sets fairly central within its formal grounds, albeit more towards the front, to give a 157ft x 75ft max Rear Garden and 78ft x 55ft East Side Area/Garden, the lawns extending round to the front and other side.

The extensive lawn is in very good shape and is bordered by a mix of a timber lengths and railway sleepers, retaining rows of various different trees giving a high degree of seclusion.

The property backs onto Stock Brook and the fields behind, so enjoys a semi-rural rear aspect, the tall trees giving a pleasant backdrop to the garden.

A neatly paved Patio provides plenty of room for the largest table and chair sets with the bifold doors in the kitchen seamlessly opening out to attractive composite decking, which steps down to the lawn. This decking part retained by glass and chrome balustrading and with inset floor lighting.
