First Floor 
The triple aspect master bedroom is situated at the far end of the landing. A slight step up reveals a large room with an en-suite shower room. Bedroom two is also a double room and is to the front of the property. Bedroom three is a slightly smaller double, whilst bedroom four may make an ideal nursery/playroom or study. There is a family bath/shower room off the landing, plus two remaining doors – one to an airing cupboard, and the other is a built-in storage cupboard.

Arriving at Harwich Road in Ardleigh village, proceed for approximately a mile and a half, and just after passing Coggeshall Road you will shortly arrive [also on your left] to double timber entry gates – where this property is set behind them, un-seen from the road.

Ground Floor 
Having been welcomed through the front door the first room you enter is the dining hall. This is a good size room allowing for a large table and chairs and features a cosy open fireplace. To your right is the dual aspect drawing room, entered via a set of French doors - alternatively you can envision these removed if you wish to create a modern open-plan arrangement [as appears in the photographs]. Note the lovely flooring and the French doors to the rear opening out onto a sun/alfresco garden decking area. From the dining hall [the left rear door] is access to an inner hallway leading in-turn to three further rooms.

The kitchen/breakfast room [also accessed directly from the dining hall] is dual aspect with the benefit of sliding patio doors to a secondary rear garden decked area. This room allows for a large breakfast table and chairs and note the spaces for an American style fridge freezer and dishwasher. In the hallway, opposite the kitchen door, is an under-stairs store cupboard and the second door along opens to a convenient ground floor bath/shower room. Viewing the utility room, offering space and plumbing for a washing machine and is the location of the oil fuelled boiler, you will see this room comfortably doubles up as a handy boot room when coming in and out of the partially glazed door to the rear garden [ideal for pet owners].

Returning to the dining hall, opening the door to the rear right reveals the staircase up to the landing and the first floor accommodation.

Front and Rear Gardens 
The front garden and driveway is enclosed, with mature foliage within the garden design along with the double timber entrance gates screening it nicely from the road. Please see the Virtual Tour link offering 360° perspective.

The rear garden is ideal for all the family and incorporates two decking areas, as previously mentioned – one commencing from the drawing room and the other from the kitchen/breakfast room. Fronting this is a large lawn with mature planting within and to the fence boundaries.

The front driveway offers secure off-road parking for several vehicles.

Ardleigh has long been regarded as a most desirable location for house buyers. It offers village living – surrounded by agricultural land, whilst retaining easy access to local towns such as Colchester and Ipswich. There are three shops in the village centre – a post office, fish & chip shop and a public house. Easy access to London is provided by Manningtree train station. It is not seen as a tourist attraction like Dedham, even though it is on the very edge of the beautiful Stour Valley.
Colchester Town Centre: 5.7 miles.
Manningtree Train Station: 3.0 miles.
London Liverpool Street: 60 minutes by fast train service.

Mains: electricity, water, and drainage.
Off mains: oil (central heating).
