A listed Georgian house at the heart of Writtle village.

About this property

  • The accommodation has a symmetrical layout to the front segregated by a central hallway, which enjoys good ceiling heights, typical of the Georgian period. These are mirrored in the front reception rooms and first floor bedrooms. Either side of the hall are the two principal rooms. To the left is a light-filled sitting room with a shuttered front bay window and further window overlooking the side gardens. A fireplace provides a focal point to this delightful room. To the right of the hall, the dining room has a shuttered front bay and includes a central fireplace and fitted floor-to-ceiling book shelving with storage under. Both rooms flow well into the kitchen and snug at the rear. The kitchen, which overlooks the walled garden, includes a breakfast area and is fitted with light Shaker-style units topped with granite. The flooring is Karndean, finished in a stone style. Integrated appliances include an oven, a hob, a fridge and a dishwasher. A utility and pantry room is open to the kitchen with a door into the garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a snug overlooking, and with doors out to the garden, and beyond is a side lobby into the garden and cloaks/shower room.

    The house has a lovely mature plot of 0.23 acres. The front garden is retained by a wrought iron railing fence. A central flagstone path separates a mature cottage-style garden. The garden wraps around the house and features a redbrick wall on two sides, designed and planted over many years for all-year colour and interest. To the left of the house is a double garage with two electric up/over doors. There are two side rooms providing a workshop and studio, an ideal work-from-home office.

    There is a footpath providing a lovely walk, outside the house, beside the village church into the village.
