Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Shop in the village of Raydon is a divine semi detached period cottage without the Grade II listing. Deeply loved by the current owner, the house has some high grade fixtures and fittings and stylish interior design. The property would be equally ideal for a family or those that enjoy entertaining. A particular feature is the detached two storey barn style building at the rear of the plot.

Nicely set back from the road, the paved frontage has been colour coordinated with the house render and leads to the central wide Oak front door. You walk into a wide generous reception hall with its wood floor, fireplace with wood stove, built in dresser with draws and cupboards, and large walk in cupboard with huge immersion tank, storage for coats and boots. There is a wood latch door into a room currently used as a study, but could be your fourth bedroom with wood floor, beams and disused fireplace. You walk from the hall into the kitchen, where the flooring turns to tile. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke painted wood units, topped with solid granite work surfaces. There is loads of storage space here and a smart range cooker, there is a modest breakfast bar and the windows look on to the rear garden. A stable door takes you out to the sun terrace and a door way leads to a lobby where you will find the drawing room to the front, dining room to the rear and shower room in front of you. The drawing room has a ‘vintage’ Oak floor, beams on the walls and ceilings, fireplace with wood stove and a bay window to the front. The dining room has a half vaulted ceiling with French doors out to the garden. The shower room has just been replaced with contemporary fittings and underfloor heating.
Upstairs, the landing has doors off to the bedrooms and bathroom, linen cupboard and loft hatch. The principal bedroom has double aspect windows and his and hers built in wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms.

Outside, there is a driveway to the side, which leads down to the back of the property and into the detached barn style garaging. This structure has an external staircase that takes you up to a useful studio above. The garden is mainly lawn with some patio and garden pond. There is a further detached single storey outbuilding which also has electricity.

The village of Raydon has excellent communication links with the A12 between Ipswich and Colchester and Manningtree train Station is a few miles away. The fine ancient market town of Hadleigh is about 3 miles distance.

All mains utilities connected excluding gas. Oil fired central heating.
