Situated in the heart of Ardleigh and benefitting from easy connections to both Manningtree and Colchester this semi-detached period cottage is in need to some gentle refurbishment. Accommodation comprises living room, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, ground-floor bathroom, utility room, and four bedrooms. The garden to the rear enjoys a west-facing aspect.
Situated in the heart of Ardleigh and within easy access of the village amenities, this period cottage dates back to 1800 and has been a much-loved home. The cottage is deceptively spacious and offers flexible family accommodation. Having been cherished by the same family for the last thirty years the property is now ready for its next chapter and a period of gentle refurbishment. From the front, a gate takes the visitor to the rear of the property, to a pretty, west-facing garden, which gloriously captures the afternoon / evening sun - bathing the vegetable patches in warmth and light - whilst creating a lovely place to enjoy al fresco dining during the warmer months.
