Full description

BEAUTIFUL RURAL LOCATION BACKING OPEN FIELDS - Located on a no through road in the pretty Essex village of Blackmore End this wonderful 4/5 bedroom detached house boasting nearly 3000 sq.ft. of accommodation is an absolute delight. Nestled on a plot of approximately 1 acre (STLS) the property is thought to date back originally to the mid 1500's and has been extended and improved over the years to create a substantial family home. Charm and character flows throughout the house and it enjoys a wealth of original features and detail including an impressive inglenook fireplace in the living room. Despite it's age the property benefits from not being a 'listed' building giving the owners the opportunity to sympathetically extend the property further, if desired. The current vendors have added a detached double garage during their tenure and also had all the thatch replaced in 2016. The main garden area is South/West facing and enjoys the sun all day whilst behind the main house there is a raised deck overlooking fields and the ideal place to watch the sun set. EPC Band F.
