Full description

Tenure: Freehold

At the front, the property benefits from a gravel driveway with space for 2 cars to park plus plenty of on street parking too. This gorgeous cottage has a large front garden, full of colourful plants and shrubs and is the definition of 'kerb-appeal'! On entering the property you reach an entrance hall and to the left is the dining room which enjoys an open fire. From here you reach the galley kitchen, which includes a gas cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. A door leads out from the kitchen to the wonderful rear garden and a pretty window above the sink means you can enjoy views of your garden from the kitchen - washing up will never be dull again! Finally on the ground floor is the lounge, also with an open fire and plenty more exposed beams and character features.

Upstairs are the two double bedrooms as well as the main bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys built in wardrobe space and is a great sized room. Also upstairs is a landing area, which the current owner uses as a home office.

The rear garden of the property is stunning and full of mature plants, including a vine which produces wonderful grapes each year. A pond with a water feature at the end with a seating area makes for a relaxing spot, and the workshop/home office is a handy addition too. The garden is a most private space, not overlooked and a place you can imagine enjoying many a summer's evening.
 

LOCATION In terms of location, this property enjoys the best of both worlds - located on a peaceful, no through road, yet just minutes away (by foot) from the local shop, pub, train station, local school and doctor's surgery. Elsenham's train station has links to both London and Cambridge and can be reached by foot in around 10 minutes - ideal for commuters.
