2 Bedroom Semi-Detached House Sold
This delightful, unlisted period cottage is nicely located only a short walk from the centre of Dedham, one of Essex's most sought after villages, known for its restaurants, its characterful High Street and its river walks along the banks of the Stour.
The property is conveniently laid out for a house of its age with an open-plan kitchen/dining room that has a vaulted ceiling and which opens directly to the garden, a good-sized reception room and two first-floor bedrooms. These are support by a separate shower room and bathroom.
The cottage has a large rear garden (IRO 60-foot) which not only enjoys a pleasant outlook over meadowland but also faces west, making it perfect for afternoon and evening sun.
THE GROUND FLOOR
The sitting room measures over 22-feet and draws light from two front facing windows. It has a fireplace at either end, one of which has been fitted with a log burner above a brick hearth. There are shelves and cupboards either side of the same chimney stack and the walls and ceilings in this room feature exposed studwork and ceiling beams.
The kitchen/dining room has windows facing four directions and is nicely laid out for entertaining with a dining area sat beneath a vaulted ceiling and double doors to the garden. This room includes some cleverly arranged cottage style units with a SMEG range cooker and extractor, an inset Butlers sink, space for a large fridge/freezer and a fitted dishwasher.
Behind the kitchen there is a lobby area that leads to a shower room - this has a good-sized cubicle shower, a WC with a traditional high-cistern and a basin.
THE FIRST FLOOR
The master bedroom has been fitted with wardrobes and overhead storage either side of the chimney breast, whilst the second bedroom has access to the loft. These are complimented by a first-floor bathroom which has a freestanding roll-top bath and a basin set below a window that enjoys some pleasant rural views.
OUTSIDE & OUTBUILDINGS
The rear garden measures 60-feet and, as mentioned, it faces west meaning it will enjoy sunshine from the afternoon until dusk. It is mainly laid to lawn but includes a patio on its back boundary and a garden shed. There is pedestrian access to the street via the side of the house.
There is on-street parking to the front of house.
Within walking distance buyers will find several pubs and restaurants, a recently refurbished Co-op store, a dentist, a doctor's surgery, a pharmacy, St Marys church, a 16th century tea room and an arts and crafts centre. Dedham's Primary School is just moments from the front door.
Dedham is famed for its connection with the landscape artist John Constable and Flatford Mill is around 30-minutes on foot from house, along the Stour River path. Dedham is also home to the museum and former home of Sir Alfred Munnings, and this is only half a mile from the property.
For commuters, Manningtree mainline station is just three miles from the property where a direct service to London Liverpool Street runs with a journey time of 60-minutes.
