Hadham Hall is a country estate boasting a rich and varied history dating back to the 11th Century. The Grade II* Listed Gatehouse is believed to have been built in the early 1500s for carriage storage and later as a dwelling for farmhands. In 1948, when the estate was converted to a co-educational school, The Gate House was used as a classroom, workshop and storage. The estate was sold in the 1990s and since then the Gate House has been utilised as a health spa retreat and now a commercial office.

The estate itself is approximately 40 acres of beautiful parkland and fabulous specimen trees. Each property owner has the option to acquire a stake in a management company who maintain the grounds, providing equal rights over the land, to all houses. There is a residents' tennis court and various guest parking areas dotted around the estate.
