Toppesfield Vineyard has a contemporary house with a large, open plan lounge/dining area and a giant picture window overlooking the vineyard. The lounge area has full height glass sliding doors looking out onto a beautiful garden and a private patio with an outside dining table, sunloungers and an outside sofa. The upstairs has two luxury bedrooms with superking size beds and luxury ensuite bathrooms; both bedrooms have views over the vineyard. There is a small, fully equipped kitchen, a tennis court and a 4 person jacuzzi.
The property is ideal for two – four adults looking to share stunning, luxury accommodation on an award-winning vineyard. There is a guest WiFi, 75” TV screen, Sonos and Alexa in the lounge area. There is a large nickel bar (like at The Ivy) which looks out over the vineyard and is ideal for drinking and eating if the weather doesn’t allow al fresco dining. The fridges are stocked with Toppesfield award winning white, rosé and sparkling wines. There is a BBQ for easy dinners and a great range of local restaurants and pubs for eating out. This is a very peaceful location just 3 metres from the edge of the vineyard, surrounded by soft rolling countryside on one side and beautiful mature gardens and a large pond on the other side.
Bradfields, the family home at Toppesfield Vineyard, has been home to many creative residents over the years, including Michael Ayrton between 1951 and 1975. Ayrton was a famous neo-romantic artist, sculptor and writer whose work became characterised by a fascination for Greek myths, notably those of the Minotaur, Daedulus and Icarus. The final photograph below shows a life size photograph of one of his biggest personal triumphs, the Arkville Minotaur, which was sculpted in the Tudor barn at Bradfields. The Minotaur is now situated in London Wall Place, in the heart of the City of London.
2021 is the centenary of Michael Ayrton and The Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden is hosting an exhibition entitled A Singular Obsession which will bring together an unprecedented loan from the Ayrton Estate of 12 bronze sculptures and paintings, some of which have not been displayed since his death. The exhibition opened on 29th May and will run until 31st October 2021, subject to government guidelines.
