Full description

A beautifully presented detached period cottage which is Grade II Listed and has origins dating back to the 18th Century. It is believed that the cottage originated as part of the Belchamp Walter Hall Estate and is situated in an attractive location with views across the valley. The property is constructed of a frame with plaster rendering and with the rear buildings being restored approximately nine years ago to provide useful additional accommodation that blends splendidly alongside the original dwelling.

The charming cottage boasts delightful rooms that offer a wealth of character to include an abundance of exposed beams and stud work, with the brick inglenook fireplace and bread oven just adding to this charm. The property has been well maintained in its recent history and work includes a new thatch, the sole plate being replaced where needed and redecoration. The house is offered to a good standard throughout and we highly recommend an internal inspection.

The accommodation, in brief, comprises wooden front door leading to the homely sitting room (16'3" x 11'8") with a wonderful large brick fireplace, with bread oven to one-side, wooden mantle and fitted with a wood burning stove. The room offers a good degree of character with exposed wall and ceiling timbers, herringbone brick flooring and front and side windows affording stunning views. The kitchen breakfast room (11'8" x 7'9") is fitted with a range of bespoke pine units with inset 1 1/2 bowl ceramic sink and integrated oven, hob and extractor hood.

Accommodation - This delightful room provides an area suitable for eating; the exposed brick chimney breast, brick flooring, exposed beams and cathedral leaded window compliments the finish of the room. The restored rear outbuildings now provide a study area (15'9" x 4'6") finished with slate flooring, with a door leading to the rear garden area and a door to the utility/cloakroom.

Wooden stairs lead to the first floor and two bedrooms. As is typical of a house of this era the rooms are divided by an interconnecting inner-hallway and are served by a beautifully presented bathroom.

Outside - The property is approached via gravelled driveway with leads to the custom made oak garage and adjoining cart-lodge. The garage has a useful boarded storage area over which has scope to be converted into a studio. To the rear of this, the useful wood store is situated. The property is screened from the quiet country lane by hedging with a picket fence with the gravelled entrance path leading to the front of the house. The principal garden area lies to the west of the property with a brick terrace, ideal for entertaining and outdoor eating, overlooking the garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a feature fish pond. The small rear garden area, with raised flower beds, gives access to the rear of the property and leads to the parking area.

Situation - The Belchamps are made up of three villages, all local to one another. Belchamp St Paul houses the local primary school and along with Belchamp Otten benefits from a public house. Belchamp Walter itself benefits from a village hall, with a strong community spirit, Church and the Stunning Belchamp Hall which has previously been used as a setting for a television series and currently provides an exclusive small venue for weddings, corporate functions and holiday lets. It offers a fine mixture of houses and the nearby market town of Sudbury lies 5 miles away, providing an excellent range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities, together with a train station providing lines through to London and Colchester via a change at Marks Tey. It is possible to drive south to Chelmsford and Braintree, the latter providing direct rail services and links by the A120 to Stansted Airport and the M11.

Services - Mains water and electric, septic tank drainage.

Council - Braintree District Council. Council Tax Band B
