Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1922 as Farm Workers Housing for the 16th Century Fremnells Manor House estate of which it formed part, this three bedroom semi-detached cottage represents a rare opportunity to acquire a character property that enjoys a good sized plot in a semi rural position on the edge of Hanningfield Resevoir. Being so close to the Reservoir and its surrounding woodland and countryside, this home will be able to provide you with a fantastic choice of walks, runs and cycle rides on your doorstep, together with a pleasant mix of wildlife, privacy and tranquillity.

The accommodation has a welcoming blend of cottage character and tasteful modern fittings throughout the accommodation, period touches including antique pine doors and the four individual fireplaces, typical of this era, which are located in both reception rooms as well as two of the three bedrooms on the first floor of the house.

There are built in wardrobes to two of the bedrooms, with the main bedroom also having a large airing cupboard and two picture windows.

The kitchen has also been refitted in recent years with wood fronted units with complimentary wood block worktops incorporating a Butler style sink. Adjoining the kitchen, which is positioned at the front of the house with a stable doors, is the large dining/family room, boasting a fitted log burner in the fireplace and a great outlook over the garden. As well as the dining/family room the property as has a cosy lounge for those winter evenings which again has a fireplace and looks onto the garden.

Occupying a plot with a good width, this semi detached house not only has excellent potential for a loft conversion but also, subject to planning, ample space for a two storey side extension, making this a home that can grow with you if and when required. Currently the owners have an opaque roofed outbuilding used a gym and driveway to the side sitting behind double gates and a fenced front garden. The rear garden is unoverlooked, has a paved patio and enjoys a popular westerly aspect.
