General information Occupying delightful gardens in excess of half an acre in a country lane position on the outskirts of Colchester is this 3-bedroom detached Grade II listed single storey cottage with garaging for 4 cars.

Lamberts consists of a thatched period cottage with extensive modern tiled roof additions to the rear and is found at the end of a long driveway. There are large gardens to both front and rear with a well, and two double garages with potential for an annexe, subject to planning, summerhouse, greenhouse and shed. Crockleford Heath is a quiet hamlet found on the north eastern outskirts of Colchester before Elmstead and Ardleigh and enjoys a rural environment yet has good accessibility into the City centre.

The main entrance door opens into the large sitting room with exposed timbers, brick fireplace, storage cupboards and dual aspect with windows to both front and rear. Also at the front of the cottage are the bedrooms, either side of the sitting room. The principal bedroom has built in storage, exposed timbers and a closed brick fireplace. A door leads through to an en-suite bathroom with freestanding cast iron bath with claw and ball feet, toilet and wash hand basin.

A door leads off the sitting room at the other end into a hallway with access to two further bedrooms, both with a range of built-in wardrobes and a further bathroom with bath, basin and toilet, originally a wet room. There is a rear porch with useful storage cupboard that leads off the hall out onto the veranda. This side of the property had been used as a self contained suite.

At the rear of the cottage located within the modern additions, is the dining room, garden room and kitchen/breakfast room. The dining room has French doors leading out onto the veranda and has a dual aspect. The garden room is a wonderfully light room with lobby and door leading out to the garden. This room could well be adapted to make an additional bedroom with perhaps en-suite facilities and currently enjoys double glazed windows and part vaulted ceiling.

The kitchen/breakfast room has painted units with timber edged tiled worksurfaces over cupboard and draw units with matching range of cupboards. A central granite topped island has a breakfast table with storage beneath. Appliances include integral fridge and freezer with space and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine, space for a range cooker, (all available via separate negotiation). The room has a dual aspect and a door leading out to the veranda.

Outside Lamberts is well screened from Chapel Lane by hedging with 5 bar gate and newly laid shingle drive leading down with adjacent lawns with a 'well'. The drive sweeps round to the side of the cottage where two double garages are found both with power and light connected. Leading round to the rear garden is a greenhouse and shed, lawns with established trees and shrub beds, enclosed by fencing whilst in the far corner is a summerhouse with power and lights. In total the plot extends to 0.56 of an acre.

Location Crockleford Heath is a rural hamlet just outside Colchester, where schooling and shops are found. The area is surrounded by farmland and woodland which provides excellent country walks. Further village amenities are found in both Ardleigh and Elmstead Market.

Colchester, which was Britain's first City, has just been awarded City status and provides major shopping centres and a variety of supermarkets nearby including Tesco, Lidl, Waitrose and soon to open Sainsburys. The university of Essex is also found on the outskirts at Wivenhoe Park, whilst in the city centre is a sixth form college and Colchester Institute.
