Located in Stratford St. Mary, in the heart of the Dedham Vale National Landscape, this detached cottage, built in 2000, offers accommodation comprising two reception rooms, study, conservatory, kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property also benefits from off-road parking, garage and beautifully landscaped gardens.

The village of Stratford St Mary is steeped in history – with ancient buildings seamlessly mixing with their more modern counterparts. The property is approached via a five-bar gate which leads to a gravel driveway - providing off-road parking - and the entrance door. Once inside, the entrance hall provides a space in which to greet guests before moving through to the main living accommodation. The sitting room enjoys a triple aspect and is a calming space to relax in at the end of a busy day. A fireplace and inset wood burner create additional warmth and ambience during the cooler months. For those who enjoy formal dining, a dedicated space awaits a laden dining table and the laughter of friends, and with double doors providing direct access to the garden, the party can flow outside. The adjacent kitchen is presented in country style, with space for a range cooker inset into a brick chimney and plenty of room for food preparation. The kitchen is open to the conservatory which allows both wonderful light to flood in and views over the garden. A useful utility room - with its own access to the garden - ensures all laundry paraphernalia is kept out of sight of the main living accommodation. A ground floor bedroom, bathroom and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, a spacious landing room provides access to the remaining bedroom, further bathroom and study. To the rear of the property, a beautifully landscaped garden commences with a patio area, which leads onto a trailing footpath, encircling an area of lawn. Beautifully stocked borders provide seasonal interest, whilst the sound of gently flowing water alerts the senses to a stream which flows into an ornamental pond. A further seating area and vegetable garden are located towards the end of the garden. These gardens have been tended with love and will continue to delight any new homeowner.
