About this property

  • Black Horse Cottage is a renovated 15th century Grade II listed house, full of charm and character. There are exposed timbers and leaded light windows featuring throughout the property, which benefits from panoramic countryside views and is being sold with no onward chain. This attractive timber-framed cottage provides rendered elevations under a thatched roof, which we understand was replaced in 2023. The cottage offers four first floor bedrooms and generous reception space, including a delightful kitchen/breakfast room with views over the adjoining garden and countryside beyond.

    The accommodation is arranged over two levels. An entrance porch leads to a spacious reception room with inglenook brick fireplace, parquet flooring and a beautiful open staircase with wrought iron ballustrade. Off to the right of the entrance porch is a separate dining room with brick fireplace framed with timber and inset wood burner and beautiful limestone-style floor. To the rear is a luxury ground floor bathroom with Portofino Calacatta tiles and free-standing Lusso stone bath with underfloor heating. There is also a well fitted study with bespoke desk and cupboards and a useful boot room, again fitted with bespoke cupboards. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is a fantastic bright and airy modern kitchen with Shaker-style light-coloured units with contrasting worktops and built-in appliances. A feature island is finished in a period tone topped with wood and a bay window to this room provides a lovely vista of the garden.

    To the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one of which has bespoke fitted wardrobes and a stunning luxury en suite with steam shower and underfloor heating.

    The gardens are a prominent feature of the property, providing privacy and views. A gated drive offers access to large area for parking. There is a double garage with power and light connected, window and rear door. The established gardens are well maintained and wrap around the property. To the immediate rear there is a lovely terraced seating and a further area beyond. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with an array of specimen and mature trees.

    To the rear of the property, an external door gives access to a lobby that houses the oil-fired boiler, with space and plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

    The whole plot extends to approximately 0.75 of an acre.

    Mains water and electricity. Oil-fired heating and drainage via a private compliant system.

A convenient, semi-rural part of Essex with stunning farmland views. Having a network of footpaths on your doorstep is a real delight.
