A delightful grade II listed 3 bedroom cottage positioned at the end of a desirable and historic road in the heart of Coggeshall.
Formally two cottages this grade II listed home dates back to the 1700s and has retained much of its original period features. These include casement windows and an exposed brick fireplace which has been opened to both sides creating an attractive focal point of the sitting room.
You enter through the front door into a handy lobby with a door into the reception area / living room which is nicely divided by the fireplace. There are numerous exposed beams and exposed studwork which have been painstakingly sanded back to create a very pleasant living space filled with character.
The Sitting room opens into a dining area which has been extended by the current owner and has a set of French doors leading to the garden and a door into the kitchen. There are some handy fitted shelves and access into a ground floor cloakroom.
The kitchen is another nice room located at the rear of the house and with a door opening to the cottage garden. There are granite worksurfaces as well as a range of Shaker style cupboards.

The bathroom has a shower cubicle as well as a bath, WC and basin. A light marble has been used to compliment many of the bathroom surfaces including the bath panel, basin surround and splashback.
The rear garden is a delightful space and has been lovingly nurtured over the years to create a wonderful, tranquil space benefitting from exceptional views over the grade I listed church next door. There are many different areas to the garden which can be enjoyed all year around. One of the most notable features is the living Willow tunnel which creates natural shade, is a haven for wildlife and is a attractive natural feature of the garden.
