A superb contemporary re-imagining of a country cottage, this beautifully curated family home is set on the edge of farmland bordering the Roman River Valley Conservation Area. Ideally adapted for busy modern lifestyles, Brewers Cottage offers a generous ‘Working From Home’ possibility if desired, as well as being within walking distance of Marks Tey Station (London 55 minutes) and having good access to the A12.

Several ground floor rooms open into the garden which has a large sunken terrace area for easy summer eating.
