Full description

"The Old Pump House" is a beautiful grade II listed property sitting in the centre of Goldhanger, a quintessential country village along the Blackwater Estuary. We believe that parts of the property date back to 1600 this is evident in the fully restored Tudor sitting room. Formerly a Wheelwright's workshop and garage, coupled with the original fuel pumps in the front garden you really can paint a picture of the property's history.

First and foremost, the "The old Pump House" is a home, proportionate spaces are finished with style that compliments the property's age. A large red brick chimney sits in the centre of the smaller sitting room and the dining room and services both rooms with open fires. Sliding sash windows in both rooms look out over the front garden and village centre. The dining room offers enough space for a large table and chairs. The aforementioned larger sitting room has vaulted ceiling, beams and a box bay window and underfloor heating, and overlooks the well-stocked front garden and historic village centre. A versatile Mezzanine floor can be accessed from the main sitting room, it can be an office or another space to absorb the history.

A rear lobby grants access to the utility room and the Kitchen breakfast room. Measuring 23'9 it offers enough room for the usual kitchen appliances, a range of cupboards, wooden worktops and space for a large table and chairs and has a five burner Rangemaster cooker. It has underfloor heating and also has access to the rear garden.

A block paved driveway runs alongside the left of the house leading to the garage and access to the back garden. There is a large barn/workshop which can also be accessed by a second drive on the right, via a carport from the road, it is ideal for anybody with hobbies or a thirst for woodwork.
