Chigwell’s outstanding properties

The Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford areas are well known for their many outstanding properties. Historically one of the most well-known even legendary properties in Chigwell was Belmont Hall and its accompanying Gate Lodge. Belmont Hall was built in 1810 with an estate of some 47 acres. This outstanding Chigwell property was once home to the Earl of Stradbroke but it was unfortunately destroyed by fire in 1973. Sadly the fire spared only one set of buildings those that were once the carriage and stable block.

What remains of Chigwell’s Belmont Hall estate  can be found about 250 yards from the present Chigwell Hall. Traces of both original driveways can still be viewed leading from the High Road Chigwell towards what were once two elegant estates. Belmont Lodge remains at the front entrance and is a reminder of the past splendour that continues to grace the Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford properties of today. 

Chigwell Hall itself is a beautiful, Grade II, listed manor house, set in its own 42 acres of lush greenery in the heart of Chigwell. It is no longer a private residence but can be used for all kinds of celebrations for the residents of Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford. It is a perfect setting for a truly romantic and memorable wedding day and they have experience of hosting all kinds of events throughout the year including Bar Mitzvahs, Birthday Parties, and other Anniversaries. Their packages can accommodate events of just 20 people all the way up to 800, with dry hire and fully catered options available.

Modern Chigwell is home to a host of unique, stylish, independent properties, old and new that grace the village and surrounding locations. The properties contribute to the areas proud sense of community spirit and identity. There is something for everyone from all walks of life in the Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford areas when it comes to outstanding properties.
