MULRIAN HOUSE
Mulrian House is a charming former hall house dating back to pre-1694 when the property was re-rendered. It is said to be the 'gentleman's house' the famous British diarist Samuel Pepys described in his diary in 1660, after spending a night there on the way to visit Lord Braybrooke at Audley End.

The original part of the house offers a wealth of character features including inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers and attractive leaded windows. The property has been well-maintained and cared for by the current owner who extended the property to the rear in 2012 to provide a stunning open plan kitchen/dining/family room, study, cloakroom and utility room, and a master bedroom suite and shower room to the first floor.
