About this property

  • Lime House is listed as being of Architectural or Historical Interest Grade II, believed to date back to the early 19th century and constructed of mellow rendered elevations with a grey slate hipped roof. The house is typical of the period of architecture with a symmetrical façade and deep sash windows around a central door case with pilasters and moulded canopy. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with a cellar and provides five bedrooms, totalling approximately 3,400 sq ft.

    The property occupies an established garden of about 0.82 of an acre with garaging and storage facilities and is situated within reasonable proximity of Earls Colne and Coggeshall.
    The property could benefit from some updating and is being sold with no chain.

    A hallway passes through the centre of the house and includes a fine staircase and access to the cellar. There are two reception rooms at the front, with a separate sitting room and conservatory overlooking the property's terrace and garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with a range of units and space for appliances. A boot room, utility room and pantry are accessed from the kitchen and a cloakroom concludes the ground floor accommodation. There are five bedrooms to the first floor with an en suite bathroom to the principal suite alongside a separate family bathroom. There is access to the loft providing further potential, subject to the necessary consents.

    The gardens are a wonderful feature, lying mainly to the south 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. There is a sun terrace and a useful range of outbuildings including a double garage and workshop. A further collection of buildings sit on the eastern boundary and do not form part of the sale. The property is set back from the road over a sweeping shingle drive leading to the front of the house and providing ample parking.
