Located at the top of Bargate Lane, and mere footsteps away from the glorious north Essex countryside, this well-presented cottage offers spacious accommodation. The property is approached via a sweeping in-out driveway which, along with the double garage, provides off-road parking for several vehicles. The garden is beautifully landscaped with simple, contemporary planting which creates a welcoming aspect to the front. Once inside, the hallway provides a place in which to greet guests before moving through to the main living accommodation. A dual aspect sitting room offers a relaxing retreat in which to relax at the end of a busy day. Adjacent to the sitting room is a second reception room, complete with French doors providing direct access onto the garden. The kitchen / dining / family room is flooded with natural light and benefits from bi-folding doors which open onto the patio. This generously proportioned room is presented in French country style, replete with granite worktops, space for AGA range cooker ( available by separate negotiation), farmhouse sink and space for an American-style fridge-freezer. A central island in the kitchen provides the ideal spot for a morning coffee or informal meals, whilst there is also ample space for a table in the dining area for more formal affairs. An adjacent utility room and pantry further enhance the kitchen space. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, both the principal and second bedroom benefit from their own ensuite facilities, while the remaining two bedrooms share use of the well-appointed family bathroom. Outside, the rear garden is beautifully maintained; commencing with a patio area, ideal for al fresco dining, the garden is otherwise predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees and shrubs and colourful beds of flowers. A pathway, through the wisteria-covered pergola, leads to the corner of the garden where double gates open to a secluded patio area, perfect for contemplative afternoons or quiet evening drinks.
