Description A charming three bedroom semi-detached Victorian cottage having been tastefully modernised and extended over the years to provide a light and deceptively spacious flexible family home. The accommodation displays fine character features, perfectly combined with the modern day conveniences including under floor heating, timber double glazed windows, solid oak and natural stone flooring, granite kitchen work tops and stylish bathroom suites with a free standing roll top bath. The property has been insulated throughout and benefits from a recently installed 'Clearview' wood burning stove. The property allows for open plan living whilst maintaining a country cottage feel.

The house is pleasantly nestled in this fantastic area promising incredible rural views and countryside living whilst still being well connected to the A12 and A14 for accessing Colchester, Ipswich and further afield. Cahmas Cottage sits on National cycle route 1 and is perfect for the keen cyclist, dog walker or runner. The area is also favoured for its outstanding schooling.

The accommodation in brief comprises: entrance porch, open plan sitting room with seating, dining and study areas, a good-sized kitchen with patio doors to the garden, staircase to the first floor landing with doors to all three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside a private gravelled driveway to the front offers off road parking with a bordered bed stocked with a range of roses, plants and specimen trees flanked by hedging either side. Double wrought iron gates provide access to the side where there is a useful wood and garden store and return door to the kitchen. A further gate leads to the rear garden, which is fully enclosed by hedging, mature trees and fencing providing the occupants with a good degree of privacy. There is an area of lawn, a pleasant raised seating area and useful workshop with power.
