OUT OF TOWN BUY OF THE WEEK: HOCKLEY, ESSEX, £600,000
An ancient history of smuggling wraps this 17th century, Hockley house in intrigue.

At ground level, sitting, drawing and dining rooms are full of beams and exposed brickwork, the kitchen houses a pale blue Aga, four bedrooms (one en suite) are upstairs and the gardens are a well-stocked treat that surround a heated swimming pool and summerhouse. Through John D Wood & Co.
