Property description

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND This exceptional detached thatched cottage underwent complete renovation and extension 3 years ago to create a stunning family house. The original thatched cottage is Grade II Listed and originates from the 17th Century with two impressive central inglenook fireplaces with bressumer beams in place. All rooms in the original part of the property are heavily beamed with extensive exposed studwork and floorboards. The current owners added the timber framed side extension that carries on the impressive character feel of the property providing a fabulous open-plan kitchen and dining room that is 30' in depth, with tri-folding doors out to the rear garden.

The property has a large front driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles currently with a detached timber framed outbuilding used as the dogs' home and laundry room but has potential for a good sized home office or additional accommodation.

SETTING AND LOCATION The property is set on the outskirts of the very popular village of Great Sampford, surrounded by rolling countryside and within easy access of great facilities including a local Pub, a fine Parish Church, cricket pitch, and an Ofsted rated 'Good' Primary School and a nursery school. Great Sampford also has a very popular livery yard on the doorstep. There are idyllic countryside walks in the vicinity and nearby destinations such as the historic towns of Saffron Walden and Thaxted provide all local amenities and are within easy reach.

There is access to Audley End mainline station and the M11 and Stansted Airport only 12 miles away. Secondary schools are situated in Saffron Walden and Haverhill; Gosfield School and Felsted Public Schools and Bishop's Stortford Collage are a little further away but within easy reach daily.
