Property Description

Full description

A charming example of a circa C16 Grade II Listed thatched cottage with gabled dormers, heavily beamed interior, vaulted ceilings and feature red brick fireplaces all nestled with an irregular shaped quarter of an acre plot within the peripherals of Tendring village.

Tendring is a village and civil parish in Essex located South of the A120 to the East side of Colchester. The village itself sprawls along the main thoroughfare and consists predominantly of a full mix of residential dwellings ranging from Period, Georgian and Victorian buildings through to contemporary construction. Tendring Primary school is well reputed and in close proximity. Bus services connect Tendring Village to both Clacton on Sea and Colchester. Whilst this period cottage has a Heath Road address, the property's access leads off Parsonage Lane.

From Parsonage Lane via a gravelled driveway you will approach The Thatch Cottage's rear elevation. A parking bay and further shingled area through the five bar gate provides plenty of parking and this area leads on to the detached garage. 

The timber framed rough rendered cottage itself lies more or less centrally in its established plot which is of an unusual shape with formal mature gardens (predominantly laid to lawn) to the North Easterly, Southern and South Westerly aspects.

Formally two cottages this listed property retains an abundance of character spanning four centuries. Beneath the C20 gabled porch to the front of the property lies the entrance door leading into the modern Kitchen with central island (breakfast bar and storage), butler sink and provisions for the usual expected Kitchen appliances. Adjacent to the Kitchen but accessed independently from the front of the cottage is a useful utility room with work surface and plumbing present for a washing machine.

The first reception room you are greeted with is heavily beamed with vertical, diagonal and horizontal (ceiling) exposed framework. The focal point of this impressive reception room is the full height redbrick Inglenook fireplace whose chimney stack forms the central pillar of this property's design. A window and a glazed wood panelled door to the South facing aspect of this reception space ensure that it basks in plenty of natural light. Cottage stairs to the left hand side of the Inglenook split and lead up independently to the two generously proportioned bedrooms on the first floor and walking past the alternate side of the chimney stack leads to the ground floor bathroom and second reception room.

The second reception, albeit a Dining Room, Lounge or further bedroom (as currently configured) has dual aspect windows that benefit the sun moving around the front to the side of the property late afternoon. It is similarly proportioned to the main Living Room with the benefit of a recessed alcove (1.6m x 1.7m)  approached through fully exposed beamwork. Here there is a more modern fireplace to compliment the period features.

The bathroom downstairs is half wood panelled with a free-standing pedestal bath, WC and hand-wash basin with opaque glazed window to the side elevation.

On the first floor, both bedrooms are profound with dramatic high vaulted (and part-vaulted) ceilings, exposed floorboards, brickwork to the chimney stack and structural beams. Both Master and second bedrooms are very well proportioned and have gabled dormer windows.

Outside, as alluded to previously, the garden is divided into a number of sections with the main established garden to the front and side (South Westerly aspect) where the modern summer house of 5.29m x 3.30m sits, offering a tranquil place to sit and relax or the central hub for your garden parties.

The accommodation consists of (with approximate room sizes):

Living Room 4.17m x 4.02m (13' 8" x 13' 2")

Dining Room (second reception / third bedroom) 3.96m x 3.83m (13' x 12' 6")

Kitchen 4.04m x 3.11m (13' 3" x 10' 2")

Utility Room (external) 2.52 x 1.69m (8' 3" x 5' 6")
