General information Yarrowes was originally a thatched cottage that has been extended and improved over the years to form an excellent family home. The heart of the property is the original cottage with a wealth of timbers, part vaulted ceiling and was recently re-thatched in 2019. Most of the accommodation is more modern additions which are adaptable to suit living requirements and can provide comfortably up to 5 bedrooms. The delightful gardens are found either side of the property and well screened behind hedging with the plot totalling 0.36 of an acre.

he entrance hall of Yarrowes links the 2 storey 'barn style' accommodation to the original thatched cottage.

The main sitting room is an impressive feature of the property with exposed timbers, fireplace and 12' high part vaulted ceiling with access door into the loft. Leading off is a dining room and through to the Kitchen/Breakfast room with bespoke units and a large walk-in pantry. There is further ample storage in the Utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for numerous other appliances and houses the oil-fired boiler. A delightful, double-glazed conservatory with vaulted roof has attractive tiled flooring which flows through into a study/home office with a dual aspect overlooking the gardens.

Back to the entrance hall, access leads through to the flexible 4 or 5 bedrooms. On the ground floor are two double bedrooms both with wardrobes and a large bathroom with separate shower facilities. The final room on the ground floor is a large split-level room with views over the swimming pool. Currently used as a family room, there is a built-in storage cupboard/wardrobe and has previously been used as a bedroom.

On the first floor is a landing providing access to two further bedrooms. The current owners use the first floor as a principle bedroom suite so have the second bedroom as a dressing room with built in wardrobes along the two main walls. Between the two bedrooms is a Shower room with walk in shower, wash basin and toilet.

Outside Yarrowes has extensively long frontage along Boxted Church Road and is well screened by hedging. At one end of the plot is a block paved drive with parking for four cars and an open sided car port 19'3 square. At the rear is a log/recycling store, oil tank and large garden shed.

A gate and pathway edged with granite sets leads down to the property creating a large paved entertaining space. Flower and shrub beds create a screen and lead out on to lawns with a further paved terrace. The gardens sweep round the front of the cottage where there is a 5-bar gate and brick edged shingle pathway leading up to the main entrance door.

Behind a conifer screen are further large side gardens predominantly lawns with a raised swimming pool with attractive paved surround. When the owner's family were younger, this area around the pool was fenced in to create a safer environment and could easily be done again.

In total the plot extends to 0.36 of an acre.
