    About this property

    • Langton Cottage is an attractive detached family home occupying a convenient setting close to the charming village of Felsted, about 10 miles north of the city of Chelmsford and 5 miles from the market town of Great Dunmow.

      The property was built around 1938, constructed of brick with a mansard tiled roof. The property has been very well maintained and enhanced with extensions added either side in 2010/11 providing the integral garage and bedroom suite above, additional bedroom, snug and an extension of the kitchen.

      The property has undergone substantial improvement including re-wiring and hot water installation. A new 'A' rated boiler was installed in December 2023. Replacement double-glazed windows feature throughout the majority of the house.

      The accommodation extends to just under 2,000 sq ft and is entered from the front via a welcoming entrance hall. The kitchen/diner is positioned to the rear of the house and was fitted by Humphrey Munson. This wonderful space comprises a range of solid oak cabinets and a selection of Siemens appliances. The room has been finished with a Mandarin Stone Nautilus stone flooring and opens directly out to the west-facing garden. The snug and dining room are positioned to the front the house offering very comfortable and flexible spaces. The principal reception room spans the length of the house and opens to a sun room with access to the rear garden. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is the cloakroom which was re fitted in 2020 providing Duravit sanitaryware and Hansgrohe fittings.

      The first floor offers four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal suite enjoys a dressing area, walk-in wardrobe and luxury en suite which was fitted in July 2021 comprising Carrara marble wall tiles and Duravit sanitaryware.

      The property is discreetly set back from the road behind neat hedging with a gated driveway leading to the front of the house providing parking for several vehicles. There is a rectangular area of front garden with shingle pathway surround. To the side of the house is an integral garage with timber doors.

      The west-facing garden extends from the kitchen/diner and sun room proving a wonderful extension to the house. The garden commences a paved terrace seating area opening to an expanse of lawn. The terrace extends to a greenhouse and further seating area behind the garage. The garden has been thoughtfully designed and planted providing all-year-round colour and interest. There is a timber-frame potting shed and a further terrace providing a delightful area to enjoy the evening sunsets.

      Mains water, private drainage (non compliant), gas and electricity connected. We understand mains drainage is available in the road.

      All in about 0.2 of an acre.
