5 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
This beautifully renovated, Grade Two Listed home makes the most of its peaceful Dedham Vale location with an attractive façade and substantial family living space.
The property, including its thatch and ridge, was renovated in the late noughties but our clients made a number of further improvements in 2021 including a redecoration of many of the rooms including new flooring, the fitting a new Laura Ashley kitchen, repainting the exterior and re-pointing the garden wall.
Period features include studwork and beams, exposed red bricks, impressive oak floorboards, characterful staircases, lead windows and inglenook chimneys.
There are three reception rooms on the ground floor. The well-proportioned sitting room has a duel aspect, a recess for a television and a log burner. The adjacent dining room has a large inglenook with a log burner and space for a good-sized dining table. Other ground floor accommodation includes a WC and a tastefully renovated bathroom that includes a cubicle shower and a freestanding roll-top bath.
The L-shaped kitchen features a pantry, granite surfaces, a butler’s sink, an electric range and new units with a built-in fridge and freezer. It overlooks the front and rear and has access to a delightful conservatory/breakfast area.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor which are accessed via three staircases. One of these rooms can easily be repurposed as a dressing room to create a large master suite. There are two en-suite shower rooms on the first floor and a fifth bedroom sits alone on the top floor.
GARDEN AND OUTBUILIDNGS
Of note is the office which is detached from the main property above one of the double garages. This is ideal for those who work from home with ample space for two desks and plenty of extra storage.
The plot totals 0.6 of an acre and faces south for all-day sun in the summer. Although a footpath runs to the front of the property (between the house and its second garage) the rear garden is totally private. It includes a wide variety of trees and shrubs arranged among various beds and along the boundaries. A segregated area is ideal for gardeners looking to grow produce and there is also a brick-built garden store and two storage sheds.
At the front, there is a parking area that can accommodate several vehicles, and a second double garage. Beneath the property there is a cellar.
The house is found on Greyhound Hill in the village of Langham in north Essex, close to the border with Suffolk. The village has excellent A12 access in both directions and is popular with London commuters who enjoy an easy drive to Colchester North Station (where a direct service runs to the City-of-London with a journey time of 50 minutes).
Within an easy walk of the property buyers will find The Shepherd Public House and restaurant, Langham Primary School and the village’s community shop.
POINTS TO NOTE
