Part of our Signature collection, occupying a rural location in grounds of just over ¾ of an acre is a four bedroom detached cottage requiring modernisation and improvement with a range of outbuildings and a stream running through the gardens.

Fountain Cottage is found in a rural position between the villages of Copford and Birch has oil central heating and double-glazed windows. The timber framed outbuildings extend to approximately 1,500 sq ft. with separate access and are found either side of an old disused swimming pool.

The main entrance door leads through to a hall with stairs leading to the first floor. The sitting room has exposed timbers and a central fireplace with a triple aspect including a bow window with window seat. The dining room has been extended and has doors through to the garden room which projects into the rear garden with French doors leading out. The room has a wood burning stove and is open to the kitchen. Double doors lead to an inner hall and through to a snug with exposed timbers and there is a small lobby and cloakroom.

The kitchen has a recess area with built-in cupboards and small work surface whilst the main kitchen has work surfaces to three walls with cupboards and drawers beneath and matching wall mounted cupboards. Built-in appliances include an integral dishwasher, 5 ring gas hob (supplied by LPG gas cylinders) with extractor hood above and double oven. The side hall provides a second entrance and is open to the utility with a run of wooden work surfaces around a butler sink, with cupboards and drawers beneath and wall mounted cupboards whilst the oil-fired boiler is located here.

The stairs lead up to a split-level landing which houses the walk-in airing cupboard and has access to the loft space. All bedrooms are double in size and enjoy a dual aspect. The principal bedroom has a wardrobe and en-suite shower room with shower and basin. The second bedroom has a range of built-in wardrobes which also incorporates and wash basin and door to a shower. Bedroom three has a wash basin and so does bedroom four which also has a double door wardrobe. There are two bathrooms and a separate toilet.

Outside
The main entrance to Fountain Cottage has gates leading through to a parking area in front of the cottage. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with established trees, pathways and the stream running through making a wonderful feature. There are a variety of shrubs and plants and a steep embankment to the rear with hedging to the front.

A side gate provides access to the rear with the stream running along the boundary. There is a paved terrace with raised beds and path leading through to a rear gate. At this point there is a second vehicular entrance to the open carport with two sets of doors through to a double garage with workshop behind. There is a potting shed next to the sunken area with disused swimming pool. On the other side is the former pool house with large main room and a kitchen area, changing room and toilet, as well as a cupboard with the pool equipment. In total the plot is just over ¾ of an acre.
