2 the old barn is situated on the Wood Hall Estate which is almost equidistant between two of the most highly regarded villages in West Essex, Clavering and Arkesden. The barn is situated in an elevated position in the centre of the estate, off a private driveway and is in the middle of a terrace of three barns. Constructed of a timber frame with weather boarded elevations under a tiled roof, the barn is Grade II Listed, considered to be of architectural and historical merit. Internally there are some notable features, including a grand sitting/dining room with a brick fireplace, high vaulted ceiling and double height glaxing at one end drawing in natural light. On the first floor are four bedrooms, an en suite shower room and family bathroom.
Outside, to the front a driveway provides parking for numerous cars in addition to a single garage. At the back of the house there is a paved terrace beyond which lawns extend to the rear boundary. The garden is about 100ft, and is screened by a well-established hedgerow.
