Ayres End House was recently used as judges' lodgings and is owned freehold by the Ministry of Justice.
An impressive example of Mock Tudor architectural style constructed of birch and timber with part slated gable ends. The property has a pitched tiled roof. Fenestration is a mixture of single and secondary glazed wooden framed units. Internally the property is arranged over part basement, ground, first and part second floors providing 3 reception rooms, lounge, kitchen, laundry/store rooms and two WCs on the ground floor. There are 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 studies on the first floor and 2 bedrooms. In addition there are 2 notable outbuildings including a former barn and adjoining garage which are both listed.
The property is situated in the Green Belt and redevelopment or intensification is likely to be inappropriate however reuse of the existing buildings for residential use is likely to be considered as only posing a low risk in planning terms.
