A former pub in Essex that was once owned by Jamie Oliver and featured on one of his TV shows has been put on the market for £1 million after being converted into a stunning four-bed home.

The celebrity chef bought The Cock in 2006 under his charity Fifteen Foundation, which worked to train disadvantaged youngsters up as chefs.

The village tavern, situated in Beazley End, near Braintree, featured on Oliver’s 2000s reality TV show Jamie’s Chef.

The series saw Oliver gift the gastropub to school dropout Aaron Craze, 28, who ran it until business reportedly slumped and it shut down in 2008.

The 400-year-old property was converted into a four-bed period home in 2013 and renamed Lime Tree Cottage.

It sits among trees and fields with a large driveway and a south-facing garden.

The inside of the property was done up with a modern decor, as shown here by the kitchen which is full of modern furnishings
