About this property

  • The Coach House is a bungalow offering well planned accommodation (currently in need of some modernisation) and has been designed to provide the principal reception rooms and main bedroom with views over the south-facing back garden and the Chelmer Valley beyond. The entrance porch leads directly into a central hallway, with coat cupboard, a WC and double doors opening into the large sitting room at the centre of the house with its elevated views over the garden and a fireplace housing a wood- burning stove. The adjoining dining room has double-glazed sliding patio doors providing views towards Little Baddow and Danbury churches and access to the large utility room, which in turn leads into the kitchen/breakfast room. This overlooks the front and is fitted with a range of Shaker-style units with sufficient additional space for appliances and a table and chairs.

    A door off the central hall gives on to the principal bedroom, which lies to the right of the sitting room and has lovely views over the rear garden, a range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. The hall then branches off past a bathroom to the other three bedrooms with views over the front.

    Outside
    The bungalow is approached over a long drive shared with a barn. There is plenty of parking at the front and access to a double garage and former tack room (attached to a barn owned by neighbouring Boreham Manor) which still has the original saddle racks but has more recently been used as a workshop. The rear gardens enjoy a southerly aspect, commencing with an elevated terrace retained by wrought- iron railings. Steps and ramped access leads to a lower level including a large greenhouse, a shed and three substantial raised vegetable beds retained by timber sleepers. The part-walled gardens are predominantly lawned, extending to about 120 ft with established borders with a scattering of trees. There is a part-moated area at the bottom of the garden beyond the fence.

    Services
    Oil fired central heating. Mains water, drainage and electricity.

    Agent's Note
    (1) We understand there is a restrictive covenant on the garage and workshop preventing any further conversion. We also wish to inform prospective buyers of this property that the sellers are relatives of a Savills employee.

    (2) The property is a Probate sale, consequently exchange of contracts can't take place until probate is granted. Please contact us for details on this point.

What I love about this property is its position and the garden. You're tucked away in the heart of the village but on the edge of the most beautiful stretch of open countryside.
