Situated in the heart of semi-rural Tendring, this pretty, timber framed cottage offers two reception rooms, kitchen, snug, ground-floor bathroom and four double bedrooms. This family home also offers a garage, off-road parking and gardens.
Situated in the pretty village of Tendring, surrounded by glorious Essex countryside; Tendring itself benefits from its position equidistant between Colchester and Thorpe-le-Soken, and excellent transport links. The North Essex coastline is a mere fifteen minute car ride away. The cottage itself was formerly two dwellings but converted into one spacious family home some time ago. As the visitor enters the house, the hallway opens up into the main living accommodation and with the kitchen directly in front, the eye is drawn towards its country-style elegance. The kitchen is light and bright and as such feels an ideal place for food preparation, and with a pretty window overlooking the rear garden this is a lovely place to enjoy morning coffee. The adjacent lobby area is a handy place to leave coats and shoes, or for those homeowners who count a dog in their number, a dog bed would be at home here, especially with doors opening on to the garden. The pretty living room leads off from the kitchen, a room full of cosy character, with a brick fireplace and ceiling beam. A lovely place for the family to relax together and exchange stories at the end of a busy day. The cottage benefits from two further reception rooms, a formal dining room and a snug. These rooms are flexible for the modern family and as such can be utilised in whatever way suits the new homeowners needs - albeit a hobby room, playroom, or den for a teenager. A family bathroom and cloakroom complete the ground-floor accommodation. On the first floor are four double bedrooms, two of which, facing the front aspect, enjoy distant field views. To the rear of the property, the garden commences with an area of patio which leads on to an extensive garden, mainly laid to lawn with raised flower borders and a pretty ornamental pond. Towards the bottom of the garden a picket gate opens onto an area of vegetable beds, perfect for those wanting to enjoy 'The Good Life'.
