House for sale in Essex is hiding something magical inside | Property | Life & Style

It may look like a formal Georgian property from the outside but this listed home is the ultimate fun house on the inside.

Astles, on the market for £1.85 million, is the perfect party house for entertaining all ages.

It has a large “party barn” which has a games room and a home cinema.

In the extensive 2.75 acres of gardens, the new owners can play on a rope bridge, zip wire and treetop walk, as well as swings, slides, a cricket net, and a giant chess board.

The property is a Grade II listed house in the village of Castle Hedingham, near Sudbury, Essex.

The owners have carried out an extensive 18-month restoration to create a stunning home with a large drawing room, dining room, kitchen and separate preparation kitchen, study, family room, seven bedrooms, a playroom/study, three bathrooms and two storage rooms.

Next to the house is the impressive party barn with a games room on the ground floor.

The property also has two large greenhouses, a vegetable plot, an apple orchard, and outbuildings.

Tim Rutter, from estate agents David Burr, said: “The current owners bought it about 12 years ago and it was in a fairly sorry state. 

“They spent 18 months completely renovating it and really transformed it into what it is now.

“It’s the perfect party house. You’ve got a large preparation kitchen, a large cellar, at the rear of the property large French doors open from the inner hall onto the York stone terrace.

“The grounds are beautiful but the owners have also put in lots of fun things, it’s like your own adventure playground.”

Children are sure to love the house, thanks to all the fun additions outside.

Tim added: “There’s a zip wire, a treetop walk, a subterranean climbing area with tunnels in it, a playground with swings and slides and a giant outdoor chessboard.”

On the other side of the spectrum, a one bedroom flat in Leyton, London, is up for sale at auction for the guide price of £25,000.

However, there is a catch for any owner hoping to cash in on the cheap price.
