Situated on the outskirts of Dedham and within the glorious Dedham Vale National Landscape, this C18 country home offers accommodation comprising two reception rooms, study, kitchen / breakfast room, utility room, conservatory, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property also benefits from a detached garage, off-road parking and delightful gardens.

Enjoying a superior position on the outskirts of Dedham, and surrounded by glorious Constable Country, this three-bedroomed, double-fronted cottage offers outstanding accommodation. Built in the 18th century, the house is set back from the road and is approached, by foot, via a paved pathway leading up to the entrance porch. For those visiting by car, a gravel driveway runs the length of the property to a detached garage. Although exuding a plethora of historical charm this property is not confined by the shackles of a Graded listing and so is able to provide comfortable 21st century living. Beautifully presented throughout, the visitor is greeted with gentle ambiance as soon as they step over the threshold. The sitting room is a charming spot in which to relax at the end of a busy day - with an inset gas fire creating additional warmth during the cooler months. Open studwork gives way to a study / reading area, with direct access onto the garden. The dual aspect dining room provides a dedicated place for formal dining whilst entertaining family and friends. Adjacent to the dining room, the kitchen / breakfast room is presented in country style with plenty of space for food preparation. Leading from the kitchen, the utility room ensures all laundry paraphernalia is kept out of the way of the general household. A large conservatory adds additional living space, with direct access onto the garden. A shower room completes the ground floor accommodation. The character of the property continues on the first floor, with the landing providing access to three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The garden, to the rear, commences with terraces to both sides which lead to a lawn, acting as a pathway to different areas of the garden. The beds are filled with cottage garden planting and border the lawn. A picket fence retains the vegetable garden, enabling those looking for the 'Good' life.
