SHORTGROVE ESTATE The Shortgrove Estate was one of the great Essex Estates along with its neighbour, the Audley End Estate. A substantial mansion (which was subsequently sold) was built in the 16th century and continuously improved by subsequent owners. In 1794, Capability Brown was commissioned to undertake work to the gardens and surrounding parkland. Longrove Barns are approached via the Sparrows End Hill entrance and are situated in the middle of Capability Brown's masterpiece, a superb location with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

LONGROVE BARNS Longrove Barns are a collection of agricultural buildings with approval to convert into 4 dwellings under permitted development. Full details can be found on the Uttlesford District Council Planning website under reference UTT/20/0963/PAQ3.
