Opened in 1988, the Ensum Brown Ware office is also home to our 'Fine & Country' division - the largest network of Estate Agents in the country serving the upper end of the market.
The riverside town of Ware has a impressive history and holds the title of one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe. The town boasts a range of independent and national chain stores and numerous bars and restaurants.

There are also some idyllic traditional villages surrounding Ware, including Braughing, Widford, Gt Amwell, Much Hadham, Stanstead Abbotts and Watton on Stone - all of which are covered by the Ensum Brown Ware office.
