4 Bedroom detached house Copford £800,000

"A superb example of a C17th Listed Grade II cottage which over the years has been subject to a full and sympathetic refurbishment programme combining both original and contemporary aesthetics blended together seamlessly creating sophisticated living spa

"A superb example of a C17th Listed Grade II cottage which over the years has been subject to a full and sympathetic refurbishment programme combining both original and contemporary aesthetics blended together seamlessly creating sophisticated living space. The cottage is well-arranged with versatile accommodation over three floors approaching an impressive 3000 sq ft (inc. garage).

For 40 years this light, bright family home has been with the same owners who have raised 3 children here. They have loved the house for its convenience due to combining rural – walking distance by footpath and through woods to the village school, village pub, cricket pitch and a playground and access country cycle rides and runs without driving anywhere, with superb accessibility – walk to Marks Tey main line rail station, on direct bus route into town and senior schools (private, Grammar and Comprehensive) and only a couple of kilometres to Sainsbury's Superstore and Tollgate Centre amenities. It has been a house for all seasons – a sunny summer garden-centred home but in winter it does cosy and 'hygge' superbly. Christmas is stunning.

A storm porch and attractive entrance door gives way to the welcoming Entrance Hall with impressive inglenook fireplace with oak bressumer beam and an open fire - complemented with solid oak flooring which extends throughout the Hallway and Dining Room into the Inner Hall. There is a walk-in cloaks cupboard and separate W/C also off the Entrance Hall.

Leading from the Hall, to your left is a Sitting Room/Reception with French windows leading to the rear garden and small patio. To your right lies the Dining Room with another impressive inglenook fireplace and oak bressummer beam, with a French 'Godin' gas stove. From the Dining Room a door leads to the spacious fitted south facing Kitchen. The Kitchen leads into the Garden Room through internal French doors. This is a light, bright room currently used as a sewing room/home office, with French doors onto a paved terrace and outdoor dining area. From the Entrance Hall there is also a door into the Breakfast Room which has French doors leading onto a sunny south facing patio; this room also leads into the Kitchen.

From the Garden Room and Dining Room, doors lead to the Inner Hall which in turn gives access to the Utility Room, a door to the drive, the Sitting Room/Library, and the staircase to the upper floor. The stylish Sitting Room/Library has two large sash windows allowing plenty of sun to flood through from the south facing aspect and it has extensive built in bookshelves and a wood burning stove.

From the Inner Hall a door leads out onto the south facing terraced dining area.

From the Inner Hall, stairs lead to the first floor Landing leading to four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with all bedrooms and bathrooms having south facing windows and enjoying views over countryside. The Family Bathroom/Wetroom has a fully tiled shower area and heated tiled floor. In the old part of the cottage, the stunning dual aspect master suite comes with dressing room and en-suite bathroom.

From the Landing a 'hidden' staircase lead to an attic room with childrens' den and access to an extensive boarded loft space.

Outside, the cottage is approached by a private drive leading to an integral garage, and off-road parking for 3 cars and hardstanding for a boat. The beautifully landscaped and established south facing rear garden offers a high degree of privacy and plenty of sun traps and areas for entertaining.
