Monks Wood Cottage is located in a magical position backing onto woodland and undulating countryside along a quiet country lane in Pattiswick, between Coggeshall & Greenstead Green. The property sits in landscaped grounds of around 0.4 of an acre which are accessed by a gravel drive which in turn leads to a detached double garage.

The house is believed to date back to circa 1800 and was formally two cottages known as 1 & 2 Monkswood cottages. The property was then converted into one house in the 20th century. Timber framed and weather boarded under a clay pantile roof the accommodation extends to 1800 square feet consisting of five bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and two principle reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and conservatory on the ground floor.

You enter the house at the rear into a reception porch which then leads into an inner hall. From one end of the hall doors lead into a well proportioned study and shower room with WC. Further doors opposite each other then open into the drawing room and kitchen/breakfast room. The drawing room has a feature inglenook fireplace with heavy oak bressumer and cast iron stove. The room is full of character with exposed beams, studwork and windows on the south and east elevations. The kitchen again has exposed beams and studwork and is fitted with a good range of cupboards for storage and a wooden worktop which offers ample space for food preparation and is inset with a double bowl ceramic sink with drainer under easterly facing windows which flood the room with morning light. There is space for a modern cooker with built in extractor over. At one end there is a recessed 'Aga'. The room has plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and double doors open onto a conservatory which faces south and overlooks the rear garden. On the first floor all of the bedrooms are double sized and have a cottage feel. The fifth bedroom is currently used as a dressing room and the family bathroom is fitted with a ball and claw foot bath, WC and hand wash basin.
