    Exteriors can be deceiving – and that’s certainly the case when it comes to this magnificent property located in the North Essex town of Halstead.

    Step back in time: Take a tour of this pretty four-bedroom Yorkshire stone detached house, built in 1921

    The five-bed detached home’s period facade lies a much more modern interior, with some unique mementos on display that theatre buffs will love.

    The property sits in a generous plot just 25 minutes away from Stansted Airport – perfect for those occasional weekend breaks to the continent.

    From the authentic Les Miserables theatre sign to the plush red velvet sofa this living space has a theatrical vibe. Complete with hanging egg chair – there’s a lot to take in in this eclectic space. The statement chandelier and Persian style floral rug reveal that the current occupant isn’t afraid to play with different styles.

    There’s no place like home – the giant Wizard of Oz sign reminds us of that. A pair of leather armchairs and warm wood floorboards add to the room’s homely feel.

    We’re not exactly sure how to define this room but what we do know is that we love the juke box. That cream Smeg fridge gets the thumbs up from us too. We also love the way the vintage clothes press has been repurposed for extra storage.

    Kitchen

    There’s a futuristic vibe to this expansive kitchen with it’s vibrant violet backsplash and the space-ship like chrome ceiling drop lamp. An exposed wine rack built into the central island is perfect for popping in a bottle or three of your favourite plonk.

    The property is listed on Zoopla for £1.6 million.
