Part of our Signature collection, a charming unlisted characterful cottage occupying a peaceful setting, nestled down a country lane on the outskirts of this pleasant village.

.
Believed to date back to the early 1600's with later additions in the 1950's, Oak Cottage offers a wealth of characterful features whilst having been sympathetically restored throughout previous years. The property sits within a secluded and beautifully landscaped plot of around 0.25 of an acre surrounded by countryside, with the benefit of a garage and driveway.

Upon entering the property through the porch, a wooden door provides access to the light and airy living room. This room offers views of the garden and has exposed timbers throughout with an open cast iron fireplace and brick surround. There are two useful storage cupboards along with a separate seating area which could be ideal as an office space. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a range of wooden storage units with granite worksurfaces which provide space for necessary kitchen appliances and a butler sink. The dining room offers a triple aspect and French doors lead out to the sun terrace. A beautiful Victorian spiral staircase ascends to the primary bedroom which offers elevated views of the garden and countryside beyond.  To complete the ground floor is the bathroom with W.C and wash hand basin and a separate staircase that rises to the first floor.

The first floor provides access to three well proportioned bedrooms, all of which have their own access whilst a dressing room, accessed through bedroom two, could also be used as a fourth bedroom. All of the bedrooms have character and are complemented by pleasant picturesque views. Bedrooms one and three are connected by a generous shower room with facilities.

Gated access leads to the side garden where the front door can be found, along with a sun terrace which is perfect for garden furniture and alfresco dining with access into the dining room.

The rear garden has sloping lawns, interspersed with mature hedgerows and trees which create seclusion and tranquillity.

Where?
The property is located in the sought after village of Purleigh, around 4 miles south of Maldon and approximately 10 miles east of Chelmsford. Purleigh is a small semi-rural village with a village shop, highly regarded primary school, public house and parish church. The property occupies a country lane setting and enjoys views over open countryside with the village recreational park located further along the lane. The village has a strong local community with many active social groups mainly centred around the village hall and The Bell public house. The area is largely surrounded by open countryside with a network of footpaths.

For the commuter, the property is within close proximity of South Woodham Ferrers and North Fambridge railway stations, providing links into London Liverpool Street. There are a choice of schools in the area, in both the public and private sector, including Maldon Court Prep School, Heathcote and Elm Green and slightly further afield, New Hall at Boreham. A bus service provides links to Maldon.
