The House
Witheys, which is grade two listed was most likely constructed in the 1700’s and in relatively recent years has been divided into two properties. Although the house follows a traditional long house layout it has been extended to the rear on two occasions.

Subject to a planning application the property could be easily returned back to two properties if needed.

The ground floor includes a central double reception room which is partially divided by a red-brick chimney stack. This room has four windows facing the front and it interconnects with three additional ground-floor rooms, two of which could be used as bedrooms five and six if needed.

Our clients have added a sympathetic vaulted rear extension to create a modern, open-plan kitchen/breakfast room. This includes an Esse stove within a brick chimney, a large island incorporating a gas range cooker and a microwave, a series of cottage style units and a dining/seating area. Other ground floor accommodation includes two bathrooms that both include separate cubicle showers and baths.

The first floor can be accessed by two separate staircases meaning that all four bedrooms have their own landing access. Three of these rooms have cupboard storage.

The grounds measure 0.54 acres and include two driveways providing rear access and ample parking, large areas of lawn, various trees and beds and an open rural aspect to the rear.

The outbuildings include a timber garage/gym with windows that could make for a work-from-home office and a substantial triple length garage which is ideal for storage.

The house is very well located on Dead Lane in the village of Ardleigh, just off the Dedham Road. As such it is just a short drive from the village centres of both Dedham and Ardleigh, both of which have ample basic services including shops, restaurants and good primary schooling. The A12 is easily accessible in both directions and both Colchester and Manningtree mainline stations are a short drive by car.

Points to Note
The property is connected to mains gas, electric, water and sewerage. Council tax band F. EPC rating N/A. We understand the property will require re-thatching in the next three years.
