A beautifully presented listed house set in generous gardens.
76 Stock Street is a handsome family home providing beautifully presented interiors with a wealth of charm and character, conveniently situated for Coggeshall, Braintree and the A12.
The property, which enjoys well balanced and light-filled accommodation, has undergone a thorough programme of restoration incorporating high quality fittings but retaining many fine period features associated with its age.
The property is believed to date back to around 1780 and was formerly two independent cottages, brought together in 2004. It is timber-framed house with plastered elevations under a handmade red clay-tiled roof, constituting a valuable source of historical architecture, listed as Grade II.
The accommodation has been thoughtfully designed for family living with three first floor bedrooms and a family bathroom, with the principal bedroom having en suite facilities.
There are two generous reception rooms, a fifth bedroom with en suite facilities and a study, all located to the ground floor. A modern kitchen/breakfast room opens to a utility room, lobby and cloakroom.
The property commands a prominent position within its plot, set back from its main road setting with a garden bustling with colour and interest, totalling about 0.6 of an acre.
The property is entered from the front into a wonderful reception hall with stairs rising to one section of the first floor accommodation. The room has attractive wood flooring and leads to the snug/study and dining room. The snug/study has a feature fireplace and storage facilities. The dining room sees a continuation of the wood flooring with wood panelling to walls, adding to the charm of the room. From here is a generously-sized sitting room leading to the fifth bedroom offering en suite shower facilities. At the rear of the property is a modern kitchen/breakfast room with light-coloured wooden units, granite work surfaces and appliances. To the side of the kitchen, a turning staircase leads to the first floor, principal bedroom which is a wonderful room with bespoke fitted units and en suite shower room. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is a cloakroom, utility room and an inner lobby, both providing access to the garden. The first floor is equally as charming offering three bedrooms, all providing fitted wardrobes, and a separate family bathroom.
The gardens are an exceptional feature of the property being laid principally to lawn with established borders comprising a wide variety of plants and shrubs, creating colour and all-year-round interest.
A circular terrace extends from the back of the house with neatly cut paths leading to a feature pond and a charming brick-built outbuilding, formerly a bake house.
To the front, a sweeping in-and-out drive provides off-road parking for several vehicles.
All in about 0.6 acre.
Mains water and drainage. Oil-fired heating.

This is such a wonderful house, full of character and very well maintained. The gardens are delightful and the former bake house offers great potential.Karl ManningProperty agent
