This outstanding country property enjoys an enviable rural location, within striking distance of Dedham's High Street and the A12, with far-reaching views over the Dedham Vale. A substantial property, with flexible accommodation, this detached home has been transformed by the vendors to offer contemporary, open-plan living with the added benefit of a self-contained unit above the double garage.
Enjoying a generous plot in the midst of the Dedham Vale countryside, White Cottage offers contemporary open-plan living in a picturesque, traditional village. Located down a rural lane, a block paved driveway leads to this stunning detached residence with its outer facade alluding to the modern, elegant style to be found within. The commodious living room benefits from virtually full height glazing to three aspects, creating a bright and spacious reception room. The sleek, modern kitchen, finished in gloss white and steel effect, is well-appointed with ample space for a wealth of appliances. Being open-plan with the dining room, which opens directly onto the terrace, this room is perfect for both family life and for entertaining. Towards the rear of the property, a fourth bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, can be accessed directly through the side entrance or through the main house. This rear hallway also provides access to the practical areas of the property - the utility room, laundry and boot room. A study / fifth bedroom and shower room complete the ground floor accommodation. A bespoke oak and steel staircase, with galleried landing, leads from the double-height reception hall to the first floor. Upstairs, the master bedroom benefits from two separate dressing areas - one at the entrance to the room, creating a stunning effect as it opens in the generously-proportioned, light-filled room, and a second behind a free-standing interior wall. Making the most of the property's elevated position with a Juliet balcony and four Velux windows, this room is flooded with light and enjoys far-reaching views over the garden and countryside beyond. A 'Jack and Jill shower room, also accessible from the landing, completes this master suite. The second bedroom has the luxury of an en-suite shower room, and a third bedroom completes the first-floor accommodation.
Outside, above the double garage, is a self-contained flat which the current owners occasionally rent out for short-term holiday lets. This could potentially be used as an annexe.
The garden is beautifully maintained with an immaculate lawn bordered by mature trees and shrubs. This magnificent outdoor space is enhanced by both a terrace and decking area, perfect for al fresco dining and outdoor living.
