4 Bedroom Semi-Detached House For Sale
The Ancient House, which is far larger than its frontage suggests, is a substantial semi-detached listed home, with 15th, 16th and 17th Century origins.
The house was renovated in the early 2000s (at the same time as its attached neighbour) and has been well-maintained and further updated by our clients since. Period features which have been retained include original oak internal and external doors, leaded windows, numerous wall and ceiling beams including some with decorative detailing, exposed brickwork, bay windows, a red-brick fireplace in the sitting room and stained-glass windows.
The renovations include three very well-appointed bathrooms (all of which have showers) and a total re-fit of the kitchen, which overlooks the rear garden and features an island with granite surfaces, a wine fridge, a gas range cooker, a larder cupboard, an island with a breakfast bar, and a bespoke-built window seat.
The rear garden measures 50 feet and faces south for all day sun in the summer months. It is secured by a mix of red brick wall and fencing and has a stone patio, a lawn and various beds; there is direct access from the rear garden to two private parking spaces.
The property is one of a pair of semi-detached homes located close to the centre of the village of Ardleigh. Services available within a short walk include a village shop, a Post Office a doctor’s surgery, a primary school, a Chinese takeaway, a recreation ground and a village hall.
Both Manningtree and Colchester mainline railway stations are within an easy drive of the property and these provide services to London Liverpool Street with journey times of 50 and 60 minutes respectively. Colchester City centre is just five miles from the front door.
