General information

Charming unlisted period home, nestled amongst the scenic constable country village of Dedham. A rare opportunity to personalise this characterful cottage, currently offering classically proportioned accommodation set within delightful secluded grounds of approaching 2/3 of an acre

The property

A hardwood front door leads in to the entrance hall which provides access to the kitchenette, cloakroom and utility room with window to front and space and plumbing for a washing machine. The cloakroom comprises a window to rear, WC and wash hand basin and through the entrance hall is the reception hall. The reception hall holds potential to be created in to an additional reception room for the property with a window and further entrance door with porch to the front. The room is spacious with exposed timbers and a main feature of an open fireplace and wooden surround.

From here stairs ascend to the first floor and there is further access to the inner hallway and study room. The generously sized study benefits from dual aspect windows overlooking the front of the property and side garden, with feature fireplace and brick surround. The sitting room accessed off the inner hallway is a light and airy, spacious room with two windows and double French doors leading out to a terrace area overlooking the side garden.

The dual aspect dining room benefits from a gas feature fireplace with wooden surround and offers double French doors through to the garden room with generous views over the beautifully appointed rear garden. In turn a wooden door provides access through to the kitchen and kitchenette room. Both rooms currently stand with eye and base level storage units with integrated sink, double electric oven and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. The kitchen shares similar views over the rear garden as the dining room and is dual aspect with a door leading to an external porch to the side of the property. Standing pride of place is a charming red and white Rayburn and a side door leads to a useful shelved pantry cupboard.

First floor

The first floor landing with window overlooking the front of the property and ceiling window, allows access to all four bedrooms, cloakroom, family bathroom and both airing cupboards. Steps lead down in to bedrooms three and four which both offer windows to the front and built in storage cupboards.

Bedrooms one and two are both of similar spacious sizes with bedroom one benefiting from  a window to the side and built in wardrobes whilst bedroom two is dual aspect with breath-taking views over the rear garden and valley beyond.

There is a separate WC with wash hand basin and obscure window to the side and the tiled family bathroom consists of a WC, wash hand basin, bath tub and window to the side.

Outside

The property is set back from the road and is retained by a wooden fence and high hedge with a brick enclosed shingled area and driveway which provides parking for several vehicles.

There is an outdoor brick built building with three doors providing access to separate storage sheds and access from the front of the property to the rear garden.

With the plot extending to 2/3 of an acre, the rear garden is a delightful and peaceful place to relax. Immediately to the rear of the property is a paved patio and BBQ area which wraps around the property whilst the rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn enclosed by mature high hedge row and various trees. The garden wraps around the house to the side providing a more secluded garden area which can also be accessed via the sitting room.
