The property

Entered via a solid oak door, a vestibule leads into a welcoming reception hall. Equally suitable for informal dining and well-lit by a deep sash window, it features an open fireplace with stone surround and Tudor bricks. A striking feature is the gently rising solid oak staircase leading to a galleried first floor landing. There is a useful side entrance and generous guest cloakroom with space for hanging coats. The room opens through to a charming music room or inner reception hall with large French doors leading out to the south facing terrace.

This in turn leads through to the elegant drawing room. This wonderful high ceilinged rooms benefits from a dual aspect with superb southerly views out across the grounds. The focal point of the gracious drawing room is an impressive mantelpiece surrounding a grate with open fire.

There is fine architectural detailing throughout the property with ornate cornicing, deep skirtings and wide doorways with solid panelled doors. The magnificent dining room enjoys far reaching views across the grounds through two large sash windows and has an attractive marble fireplace. This room leads through to the neatly fitted kitchen with stylish units and muted granite work surfaces. It is fitted with a Britannia Range Oven with Elica extractor above and there is space for a dishwasher and a separate covetable pantry. This area flows through to the breakfast room, which has a door out to the walled courtyard and gardens. Stairs also lead up from the breakfast room to the bedrooms in the west wing of the house. The conveniently sited laundry room has a butlers sink and space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and large American style fridge freezer if required. Beyond is the boot room and store with access out to the garden. The sitting room is a wonderful family room, well lit by three sash windows and featuring painted panelling and a brick fireplace. The expansive study can also be entered via the reception hall.

The galleried landing, at the heart of property, is flooded with light from a series of leaded light windows and leads to the principal first floor bedrooms. The impressive master suite includes a superbly proportioned bedroom with stunning views to the south. It is complemented by a well fitted cloakroom; separate dressing room and large well-appointed bathroom with walk-in shower, basin, toilet and bath with shower overhead. A staircase leads to the second floor bedrooms, possibly suitable for nanny/au pair accommodation.

Bedroom two, a beautifully proportioned guest bedroom, benefits from an ensuite shower room and southerly leafy views. Bedroom four is a charming double bedroom with leaded casement window and a wall of wardrobes, whilst bedroom three is a generous double room and again has fitted wardrobes. Both are complemented by a well fitted bathroom, including a bath with shower above. A passage leads to the west wing of bedrooms (this section could become a separate annexe); Bedroom five and six are both doubles complemented by a stylishly finished shower room. Bedroom seven is a spacious room with exposed timbers, that could work equally well as a playroom or first floor sitting room.

Outside

Approaching 1.3 acres, these beautiful grounds are a rarity within the heart of this small market town.

The secluded landscaped gardens are a wonderful feature of the property and include extensive lawned areas and many specimen trees and shrubs. A large balustraded terrace extends across the rear of the property and adjoins a characterful walled courtyard area, also providing access to the boot room or breakfast room.

The boundaries are delineated by established brick walls and mature hedging and are fully enclosed. At the furthest point of the garden is a woodland glade underplanted with spring bulbs.

Access to the property is through substantial brick piers set within the walls at the entrance to Nunns Close. A sweeping gravel drive provides parking for a number of vehicles. There is an additional access for Coggeshall House (only) via the southern most end of Nunns Close, albeit currently not utilised, offering flexibility in the layout of the grounds.
