Full description

***No Onward Chain*** Thought to date back to the 18th Century, Mary's Cottage in the village of Rayne is full of character and charm throughout. Originally a thatched cottage, the property has been subsequently extended on the ground floor to create a highly desirable two bedroom property with a good sized garden, detached garage, parking for two cars and also the 'Rayne lock-up' in the grounds, which was built in 1819 and reportedly used to house prisoners overnight either before they were taken into Braintree to be charged or they were left there to sober up, however the lock-up now makes a useful utility/storage space.
