Property description

A charming period cottage overlooking Writtle village green.

Location

Chelmsford Station: 3.1 miles (Liverpool Street from 34 minutes): A414: 0.7 miles; A12: 3 miles; M25: 12 miles; Stansted Airport: 18.9 miles. All distances approximate.

This delightful property is situated on the green at the heart of Writtle village, which has been described as "one of the loveliest villages in England". In addition to its Norman church and green (complete with duck pond), it offers an excellent choice of shops and other amenities including a post office, a delicatessen, a supermarket and a number of highly regarded restaurants and pubs. It also has a pre-school, two primary schools and a senior school and is home to Writtle College, which is one of the UK's oldest and largest agricultural colleges.

The city of Chelmsford lies approximately one mile away to the east of the village and offers a very wide choice of facilities including excellent state and independent schools, a station on the mainline into London Liverpool Street and access onto the A12.

Description

The courtyard front garden is set behind iron rail fencing and leads to the stable door main entrance. The property dates back approximately 400 years and has had a varied and interesting history, having at times been an antique shop, a public house and even a bakery and is now a wonderful family home with abundant character throughout. Unlike most cottages, the accommodation has good ceiling heights and spacious living areas that include a split level lounge with a large feature bay window to the front and a fireplace with wood burner, a dining room with built in storage cupboards, an inner lobby leading to the ground floor cloakroom and a garden room (added in 2002) with flagstone floors, a glazed roof and arched windows. The good size kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of country-style bespoke units and benefits from a larder cupboard, a four oven Aga and access to a separate utility room.

The first floor provides four bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, a substantial family bathroom fitted with a three piece white suite and storage unit and a separate shower room.

OUTSIDE
The kitchen and garden rooms give on to an courtyard that extends, somewhat unexpectedly, into a plot of some size. Much time and love has been spent creating several garden zones with mature planting, a pond, a vegetable patch, and numerous seating areas. There is also a range of outbuildings to include a former bake house, all with power and lighting and a long private driveway to the rear (accessed from St John's road) leads to a detached double garage and ample off street parking.

Square Footage: 2009 sq ft




Acreage: 0.25 Acres

Directions

From Chelmsford, proceed west out of Chelmsford on Writtle Road towards Writtle. Continue for approximately a mile past the duck pond on your left and then The Cricketers can be found on your right facing the village green.
