A wonderful slice of Brentwood history in a grade one listed Georgian Palladian country with an abundance of space, style and character. Guide Price: £2250 to £2500 per calendar month.

This 1679 Sq.ft. apartment, arranged over two floors, is full of natural light in the main living area, due to the large dual aspect, Georgian, windows flooding the room with light, right to the top of the double heighted ceiling. In this room there is also a spectacular piece of bespoke carpentry as a focal point, with a double heighted, oak, storage unit that would sit pride and place in any academic library. On this level there is also an excellent, well-equipped, Art-Deco style, separate kitchen, complete with island unit. You can also find the third bedroom with bespoke fitted wardrobes and desk to match as well as a downstairs cloakroom along the hall.

Upstairs the apartment has been opened up to create a galleried workspace if working for home or just a lovely spot to sit and read, whilst looking out over the living area and through the large Georgian window with a view across the grounds.

The main bedroom not only benefits from built in wardrobes but also a simply exquisite en-suite bathroom that has a large bath, and separate walk-in shower. Along this floor is also the second bedroom with built in storage and a very contemporary main bathroom, with a double shower cubicle complete with jet sprays, as well as overhead rainfall shower head.


The property benefits from having the communal terrace close by, which is the perfect spot for that morning cup coffee or glass of wine in the evening. The terrace overlooks the grounds and the golf course beyond, as well as Thorndon Country Park.

The apartment also has its own garage within the grounds as well as communal parking to the front. There is access to Thorndon Country Park from the communal grounds with BBQ areas available for residents to use at the edge of the to the park. The well-kept lawn is the perfect spot to sit in the sun and enjoy the peace and tranquillity the grounds provide, especially emphasised by the stone water fountain on the edge of the lawn.


According to the history books, the estate of Thorndon Hall, known previously as the manor of West Horndon, traces back to the 1086 Domesday Survey commissioned by William the Conqueror. A building on the site of Old Thorndon Hall was first recorded in 1414.

The present house was designed by the fashionable architect James Paine and construction started in 1764. The portico of the present house was originally commissioned and imported from Italy in 1742 for use on the old hall which had been remodelled by Giacomo Leoniin in a Palladian style.

Following a fire in 1878, much of the main house and west wing were gutted leaving a shell. The surviving east wing was adapted into partial residential use with plans to renovate the house back to its original grandeur. In 1920 the house and a portion of the estate was leased to Thorndon Park Golf Club. Originally, the company had planned to develop the estate into a luxury housing development and golf course, much the same as the Wentworth Club and St. George's Hill in Surrey, but with the introduction of London green belt legislation limiting house building on farm and parkland, the plan could not go ahead and the company folded.

Eventually the golf club acquired the house and grounds but chose to move out of the main hall and construct its purpose-built clubhouse within the grounds. In 1976, Thorndon Hall was sold to a developer, Thomas Bates & Son, who converted the mansion sympathetically to luxury apartments and cottages in landscaped surroundings, woodlands and parkland.

Parts of the former park had been sold off during the twentieth century for development on the outskirts of Brentwood. Essex County Council manages extensive areas as the public Thorndon Country Park.


Brentwood offers the best of town and country. From the amazing country parks such as Thorndon of which this development sits in the hundreds of acres – to the high street stores, bars and restaurants, as well as the wonderful independent businesses on Crown Street - it’s a brilliant place to be!”

Brentwood rail station is a short drive away and provides frequent trains to London Liverpool Street and Shenfield. Shenfield will also be the eastern terminus of Crossrail when it finally makes its long-awaited debut later this year. Crossrail will carry passengers from Shenfield, through central London and then out to the west via Heathrow, terminating at Reading
