Full description

The house has undergone a complete high quality restoration providing a unique fusion of elegant period features with the conveniences sought in the 21st century, including quality kitchen/breakfast room and modern bathrooms. Originally built as two cottages and an Oast House, the buildings are thought to date back to the 17th century. The house offers a rich tapestry of surviving historical detail, including several fireplaces, incorporating wood burners, intertwined with some beautiful exposed timbers. Despite its age, Hopkiln Cottage offers generous light filled rooms and versatile accommodation. Internally it enjoys wellproportioned reception rooms and bedrooms. The sun room extension is a later addition which offers beautiful views across open countryside.

Blackmore End is situated 5 miles north of the town of Braintree and is in a semi-rural location.
Easy access to central London can be gained from the mainline railway station at Witham, which provides regular services to London Liverpool Street (approximately 45 minutes). There are outstanding schools in the area, both state and private including the Grammar Schools in both Chelmsford and Colchester, New Hall and Felsted. Shalford Primary School is within 1.6 miles. Excellent transport links include easy access to the A12 leading to the M25 and the A120 to Stansted and the M11 and the National road network beyond. A local country pub, The Bull, is within close proximity offering a selection of traditional pub meals and real ales.

A domestic barn lies adjacent to the cottage. This is in need of restoration and had planning
permission granted, on 3rd March 2017, for
refurbishment to include extensions, to both the rear and side, and a small porch to front. The documentation for this can be located at Braintree District Council under the reference
Ref 17/00322/FUL.

The gardens which surround Hopkiln Cottage are landscaped with extensive lawns and beautiful views to the south west. A wide variety of mature trees and hedging surround the grounds, creating a great deal of privacy. A secluded patio, pagoda and raised pond are tucked away behind the barn creating a great area to relax. Raised vegetable beds and a greenhouse offer the garden enthusiast the opportunity to ‘grow your own’. Parking is never an issue as the sweeping driveway offers parking for many vehicles. The double bay cartlodge and wood store are a recent addition, but aesthetically sympathetic to the original buildings.
