An exceptional and decorative property, its creators imagined it as a typical Arts & Crafts-style country house, built in rich Essex red bricks and with distinctive large, leaded light windows and intricate eaves detailing.
Conceived possibly as a farmhouse of the hamlet, it sits very squarely on its sizeable plot and enjoys the unique benefit of a paddock on which to graze a family pony.
Among its other distinctive characteristics are its attractive chimneys, carefully positioned for added interest, one of which makes an imposing, external feature to the side of the house.
Internally, however, Prittles in no less arresting, with a grand, central reception hall, from which an impressive, feature staircase rises.
Most of the accommodation nestles in two wings: at ground-floor level one of these comprises a splendid kitchen, dining and family room, with French windows on to the terrace.
Half-glazed, timber-panelled, double doors, from the hall open into this spectacular space, enhancing the airy ambience and providing a sense of flow with the rest of the house.
