Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Charming village home set within delightful gardens with well-proportioned characterful rooms and a superb south westerly open aspect across the meadows to the trees beyond with the benefit of planning to extend. Just a few steps from the High Street with its local shops and restaurants and riverside walks, yet just 10 minutes drive from Manningtree mainline station and with good access to the A12 connecting to Colchester and Ipswich.

The property

A part glazed solid painted door leads into the entrance lobby with quarry tiled floor which continues through to the hall linking the main rooms of the house. The well-proportioned sitting room has a sash window with attractive views out across the front gardens. The room features a welcoming open fireplace with brick hearth and has exposed solid wooden floorboards.

The family room also features wooden floorboards and the focus of the rooms is a period fireplace with painted mantelpiece and tiled surround. There is a deep storage cupboard located beneath the stairs. The family room flows through to the dining area and benefits from a dual aspect with light flooding from sash windows from both the east and west and a large roof light. The dining area enjoys wonderful views across the rear gardens to the meadow and trees beyond. Slate flooring continues through to the spacious kitchen area which also benefits from a westerly aspect and good views with a stable door leading directly out to the raised terrace.

The kitchen is well fitted with a range of Shaker style painted wooden units with solid wooden work surfaces, complemented by stylish metro splash back tiles. Plenty of additional storage is provided by practical open shelving. There is a range cooker and space for a dishwasher, washer dryer and a large American style fridge. A large double butlers sink is well placed beneath a window with views out across the gardens. Also on the ground floor, the guest cloakroom has a wash hand basin and good sized window.

Stairs lead up from the front hallway to a small landing area (from which bedroom three would be accessed) with a small casement window giving plenty of light. Both of the bedrooms have excellent proportions and can accommodate king size beds. Bedroom one has an original fireplace, good sized sash window to the east and space for two large wardrobes. Bedroom two also has a decorative fireplace and delightful views out across the meadows and trees and benefits from a built in cupboard.

The large bathroom has a period style free standing bath, wash hand basin inset into a characterful wash stand, toilet and large walk-in tiled shower and is well lit via three windows.


The house is approached via a long shingle path bordered by Lavender with lawns to either side. The front garden is retained by metal fencing to the front with hedging to either side. There are deep flowers beds to either side of the front porch and the path continues around to the side of the house and via a timber gate to the rear garden.

There is a raised terrace area which is sheltered by a timber pergola. There are two paved patios which catch the sun throughout the day and a timber studio 12' 7" x 7'7" with glazed doors opening onto the lawned area. Privacy is provided by brick walls to either side and there are wonderful views out across the meadow land to the trees beyond.
