About this property
The Arabin Estate is a Grade II listed country estate set in about 11 acres of private mature parkland in Epping Forest. Originally built in the late 16th Century with further remodeling in 1800 Arabin House is an elegant white stucco fronted three story home with the benefit of active planning permission granted to remodel and extend to circa 11,840 square feet above ground. There is an extensive rear terrace with the permission granting an impressive outdoor swimming pool.
The estate also includes a beautiful detached Grade II listed cottage featuring four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms and kitchen breakfast room; a detached coach house including a large living room, good sized kitchen breakfast room and on the first floor a good sized bedroom and bathroom; a newly constructed 8 car garage block which is air conditioned with the first floor providing 3 large rooms above also air conditioned and perfect for a gymnasium and games room.
Arabin house is currently divided into two residences (Arabin House and Beech Hill house). The current owner has brought back together the original Arabin estate. Planning permission has been granted to bring together the two houses and adding two breath taking wings to create an elegant Georgian home with bespoke modern luxury. The new home created will use the original Georgian entrance with the Victorian front extension being demolished.
