Property description

Providence Cottage is a deceptively spacious five bedroom, three reception rooms, three bathroom house providing approximately 2,370 sq ft of accommodation, set in one third of an acre and nestled in the Essex countryside.

The current owners originally acquired the property as a three bed house and have extended both the house and gardens extensively whilst bringing up their family.

Located between the famous Essex towns of Thaxted and Finchingfield the property sits just outside the village of Great Sampford, includes ample off road parking for a family, as well as outbuildings comprising a garden shed, greenhouse and studio, which could become an office.

The situation of the property allows lots of opportunities for dog walking, rambling or just enjoying the countryside.

The ground floor comprises the entrance hall leading to, a shower room, sitting room, a second reception room or study. Past the staircase to the upstairs, we find the 300sq ft kitchen diner with French doors leading to the extensive terrace.

Or hang a left and we find the “Reading Room” which in turn leads onto a conservatory with utility room section as well as a second entrance to the terrace.

The first floor is reached by a straight wooden staircase leading to a mini galleried landing which boasts a floor to ceiling window with views over the fields behind.

There are five bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level.

One of the bedrooms is a single, ideal for an office or nursery whilst three further rooms are comfortably doubles. Finally the Master Bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, an en-suite shower room as well as a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room as well as dual aspect windows overlooking over the beautiful Essex countryside.
