Constables is located at Shalford Green to the northwest of Braintree, in a delightful situation backing onto farmland. There is a local shop at Church End, Shalford and the main shopping facilities are provided at Braintree with a primary school at Wethersfield. For the commuter there is a train service from Braintree, Witham or Chelmsford and there is access onto the A120 at Braintree which connects with the M11at Bishop's Stortford.

Description

Constables is a Grade II listed cottage believed to date from the 18th century or earlier and altered in the 20th century. Constructed of timber frame with rendered elevations under concrete tiles the cottage has been in the same ownership for 46 years and is in need of renovation. The accommodation comprises a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and entrance lobby on the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

Outside
Constables is approached over a single track country lane leading to a parking area to the side of the cottage in front of a dilapidated timber garage. The garden is laid mainly to lawn surrounded by mature trees and shrubs with plum and apple trees. To the north of the main garden is a further area of garden, presently overgrown, interspersed with trees and shrubs and including a large fig tree, backing onto farmland.

Services (not tested)
Mains water and electricity. (NOTE: The mains water pipe in the lane has been slightly dislodged resulting in a small leak, so the water has now been switched off to the house at the junction with the road. No water is presently connected to the house and it will be the purchaser's responsibility to re-connect).

Viewing
Strictly by prior appointment with the sole agents Savills.

Square Footage: 1,042 sq ft
