About this property

  • Seasons is located on a quiet, rural lane set down a cobblestone driveway which leads to the entrance door, detached cart lodge and garage.

    Seasons is a superbly presented house on the edge of a highly sought-after village. The accommodation is remarkably flexible and comprises a sitting room, dining room, study, garden room, kitchen/ breakfast room and utility room. The layout can be easily altered to provide either three, four or five bedrooms.

    The house is entered through a spacious entrance hall before moving through to the main living accommodation. The sitting room benefits from an elegant stone chimney piece, with an inset wood burning stove. Sliding doors provide direct access on to the terrace, overlooking the gardens.

    The kitchen is superbly appointed with country style bespoke cabinetry and granite work surfaces. There are integrated appliances, including a Miele oven with warming drawer below, Miele induction hob, Miele dishwasher and Bosch fridge and freezer.

    From the kitchen, a lobby leads to a utility room and provides access to the integral garage which again is remarkably flexible and could be integrated into the main house as additional accommodation, if required.

    Across the hall, a dual aspect dining room provides a formal space with wonderful far reaching views over the vale. It has a box bay window with a window seat and bespoke wood panelling.

    There is a superb garden room with windows to three sides providing the most outstanding views. This space is perfect for relaxing and a more casual dining space. A beautifully appointed bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor is the principal bedroom with en suite and dressing room. French doors lead out to a balcony allowing beautiful views over the garden. There are a further two bedrooms on this floor, one with en suite cloakroom. All these rooms have fabulous views over the garden and fields.

    Seasons has beautiful mature grounds of about 0.3 of an acre. To the rear of the buildings is a spacious terrace, ideal for al fresco dining.

    The stunning gardens have mature trees and shrubs. There is an excellent array of outbuildings, including a workshop and shed, both with power and lighting, a further garden shed and an outside cloakroom.

Seasons is an absolutely superb house with versatile accommodation and a stunning garden in one of my favourite parts of the world, the spectacular Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
