Full description

INTRODUCTION
This exceptionally well-located home is a rare find, being one of the few properties found in close proximity to Dedham High Street that enjoys both seclusion and private parking.

The house retains many delightful period features such as oak panelling, studwork and ceiling beams, mullion and sash windows, feature fireplaces in the bedrooms, a handsome red-brick chimney with two fireplaces (not in use) and antique internal doors.

Built in 1614, we believe the house was restored in 1976 before undergoing some more recent improvements during our client?s ownership. These include being re-decorated from top-to-bottom, the addition of a modern but sympathetic kitchen and three new bath/shower rooms. A new boiler was also fitted.

The adjoining two storey workshop is currently used for storage but has the potential for conversation (stp) into a studio, an office for up to four people or even an annex, in which case its location at the very heart of Constable Country could make it ideal for Airbnb.


GROUND FLOOR
The dining room is the centre point of the ground floor and orientates around a red-brick fireplace. It has access to the kitchen, the cellar, the sitting room and stairs leading to the first floor. The kitchen has a stone floor, quartz surfaces, a boiling water tap and a dishwasher. There is space for a gas range cooker and fridge/freezer plus access to a utility cupboard that houses the boiler.

The sitting room has panelling on all its walls, a charming fireplace and windows to two elevations. Other ground floor accommodation includes a shower room and a good-sized entrance hall which is ideal for coats and boots. The cellar has been tanked and makes for an excellent gym or playroom.



FIRST AND SECOND FLOORS
There are four bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors which share the use of a shower room and a family bathroom. The master bedroom also has a dressing room/nursery and there is a fifth single bedroom/study on the top floor.


OUTSIDE & OUTBUILDINGS
The property is one of six homes on School Lane with The Old Post House having its own parking spaces to the front and side which are sufficient for three cars. The rear garden was previously used for parking but has more recently been enclosed; it is ideal for outside entertaining being mostly private and south facing (for all-day sun).

As the floorplan illustrates, the two-level workshop sits adjacent to the house. It has a set of double doors to the front, a ladder to the first floor and its own small courtyard to the rear.


LOCATION
Dedham is recognised as north Essex's most sought-after village and The Old Post House enjoys a superb position right at its centre. Within easy walking distance buyers will find the Sun Inn, The Marlborough Head, The Boathouse restaurant, many shops including a recently renovated Co-op. The Stour River walk to Flatford starts just half a mile from the property.

Dedham is equidistant between Ipswich and Colchester, whilst Manningtee is around four miles away by road where a mainline station delivers commuters to London Liverpool Street in around an hour.


POINTS TO NOTE
We understand the property is connected to mains gas, electric, water and sewerage. Council tax band E. EPC exempt. The loft rooms have been used as bedrooms by our clients and the previous owners.
