"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." - Coco Chanel.
Rubbing shoulders with its woodland surroundings and frequent visitors such as deer, peacocks and alike is this expansive and unconventional family home.
Set within grounds of a 1/3 of an acre, The Mimosa House is an important building that forms part of the story and heritage of the enchanting village of South Weald.
Built around the 1900's this former Gas house would supply coal gas to illuminate and heat the nearby historic country house of "Rochetts" whose noteworthy previous owners included the 1st earl of St Vincent, a naval admiral and first sea lord, and Lieutenant colonel Charles Newman a Victoria Cross winner who played a pivotal role in the raid of St Nazaire during world war II.
Uncompromising in its prominence within the undulating gardens, its exterior is one of cat slide roofs, colonnades to hidden doorways, a minaret like chimney and solid white expansive walls.
Beyond this striking image of functionality and previous industry that this image portrays is an interior that is one to admire and marvel.
Beautifully kept, with flexible accommodation allowing for up to six bedrooms. The sitting room affords views of the lawned gardens from three sides. A beautiful dining room with galleried landing and full height window allows light to fill its voids. Its kitchen is modern and dynamic.. The bathrooms are utilitarian and spotless.
The Mimosa House is within a fabulous setting with The 500 acre Weald Country park moments away.
The highly regarded village of South Weald is just outside the town of Brentwood in Essex. Brentwood town centre enjoys a varied range of shops, boutiques and restaurants. There is also a railway station with frequent services into London's Liverpool Street terminus.
The M25 London orbital is less than two miles away.
