Come to Constable Country!

This modern and beautiful four double bedroom country house is situated in Dedham, in the heart of Constable Country, and has a huge family/kitchen with a dedicated utility room, large separate living room, study, downstairs cloakroom, Jack-and-Jill en suite and a further family bathroom, and an airing cupboard. It is in a non-estate position with country views, newly built in 2006 and refurbished in 2024. It has full gas central heating, is fully double glazed, with parking area at the front, and front and rear gardens.


The owners themselves built and designed this house, and things they had in mind in doing so were to have large family spaces as well as the ability to entertain—so open up the double doors from the dining room into the living room and large hallway and you will have masses of space for your guests to mingle! Or, secrete yourselves in the living room with the double doors shut, and still keep an eye on the children as they play in the family room.


The whole house has been refurbished and repainted, with new hessian backed carpets in every room save the study and hallway, which has brand new quality laminate flooring. There are new suites in the downstairs cloakroom, family bathroom and Jack-and-Jill shower en suite, and as well as double glazed windows through both the kitchen and rear master bedroom have new double glazed windows as part of the refurbishment.


New mains operated, battery back-up smoke alarms and kitchen heat detector have been fitted. The understairs cupboard not only has a coat rack, but room for all your holiday suitcases. Attention to detail includes the provision of “keyed alike” locks, so one key will fit all your locks externally, front and back—and turn knobs inside means that you will have an easy way to lock up at night without searching for your keys.


Internal doors throughout are country pine, with brass style fittings. All windows have locks. All carpets have been Scotchguarded, and the house has a new gas safety certificate and Electrical installation Condition Report. With the exception of the family bathroom bath and showers, every water supply point has its own shut off valve for easy maintenance.


The photos really do not do this house justice, so come and see for yourself!
