Bridge House is a great example of a 16th century home with many notable and attractive features located close to Kelvedon mainline station and benefitting from NO ONWARD CHAIN.
Bridge House dates back to the 16th century and was once a singular property alongside the neighbouring home. Rich in history, this expansive residence has meticulously preserved its grandeur, boasting remarkable features such as imposing inglenook fireplaces, lofty ceilings, and a stunning Oak staircase that graces a gallery landing.
Upon entering you are welcomed into a generous sitting room with dual aspects and is centred around a large inglenook fireplace and Oak bressumer. There are windows to the front and side which allows for a lot of natural light to enter.
There is open access into another large reception room which shares the inglenook and has a wood burner fitted. There are French doors leading to the garden and access into the kitchen breakfast room.
The Kitchen is fitted with a range of units and has granite worksurfaces. There is a large walk-in pantry cupboard and a utility room / boot room with access into the garden.
Another really nice feature is the inner lobby where the staircase leads to the first floor. The staircase is worth making particular note of. It is a grand feature from the original house and has moulded strings, handrails and twist turn balusters all carved out of Oak dating back to the 17th century. The staircase has two dog legs which return to provide a attractive study area. The stairwell is filled with light from a large 12 pane window with leading.
The first floor benefits from four generous bedrooms with the primary bedroom having an en-suite bathroom. There is an additional family bathroom located on this floor.
There is also a staircase leading up to a large attic space suitable for storage.
Externally there is a small front garden enclosed with a picket fence and gate and a parking area to the side with access to the garage.
The rear garden is partly walled and has a Southerly aspect. There are numerous mature plantings as well as a well-established Beech hedge and a lawn area.
Feering is a lovely village with all the benefits of a rural, yet strategic location, enabling easy travel to Colchester, Chelmsford and London. Its ancient centre, located around All Saints Church, is listed in the Domesday Book although the village has grown considerably since medieval days and now stretches from the river Blackwater at the border with Kelvedon in the south, to the A120 in the north, and is home to some 1900 people. While still retaining its small, local and friendly village feel, Feering has a surprisingly large number of amenities including thriving pubs, All Saints Church and a well-regarded primary school. The region boasts a significant number of secondary schools as well as colleges and nurseries. There are well-renowned private schools within easy reach and some of the country’s leading grammar schools in Colchester and Chelmsford.
