Full description

Come and fall in love with the charm and character of this Victorian country cottage just in time to get the best out of the summer months. A cosy retreat from the crush of urban life. Available long term. Bring your dog or cat to see what they think. We know they'll love it!.

There's a woodburner in the living room, an electric rangemaster cooker, a country style kitchen, extra length garage, mature garden, and river nearby.This Victorian cottage, built in 1857 in picturesque Higham, just a couple of miles from Dedham, is only a few yards from the bank of a delightful twisting section of river.

It is carpeted throughout, except for the traditional tiled farmhouse style kitchen floor, and decorated in light, pastel colours. With the kitchen and cozy living room downstairs, the house has the relatively unusual bonus of the bathroom upstairs, as well as the two bedrooms.

The kitchen has an electric range cooker with no less than 6 hobs, including a long warming hob. There is a grill and two ovens, one of which is fan assisted, and one conventional. The style of the kitchen is very much along the lines of a farmhouse kitchen, with the units being supplied by a well-known, local, high specification kitchen company.

The woodburner is a feature that has been very much enjoyed, providing both the charm and interest of a real fire, but the practical heat of a cast iron wood burner. It is an exceptional feature to have. Picture yourself sitting in front of the flickering flames in the autumn or winter evenings.

Outside there is a driveway alongside the garage to the garden, which has a patio and old brick built barbecue effect chimney within the mature garden.

The garage gives parking and/or storage opportunities, which are often not available in rural properties.

The water supply for the washing machine is housed in an insulated room at the end of the garage, which makes best use of the kitchen space, and keeps the noise away from the house.

The approximate room measurements in feet are as follows:

Kitchen: 12'11" x 9'6"Living room: 12'6" x 11'0"Bathroom: 9'7" x 7'5"Bedroom 1: 12'1" x 8'0"Bedroom 2: 12'5" x 7'4"
Garden: 35' x 20' (Approx)

Higham is close enough to 3 significant towns of Colchester, Ipswich and Manningtree to be accessible easily within half an hour, and you can be in London within an hour and a half. Yet at the same time, Higham is a small village right on the Suffolk/Essex border in a designated conservation area within the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its population is little over 200 residents. Dedham itself is only 3 miles away.

Higham also contains Rowley Grove, a nature reserve classed as Ancient Woodland and a 'point-to-point' racecourse which is home to the 'Waveney Harriers'.

So, all in all, you have a very rare combination of practical features in the house and its location, whilst being deep in some of the most popular East Anglian countryside. Do not miss out on this unique property, call Concord to arrange a viewing.
