    About this property

    • The property dates from the 17th century and is Grade II listed of architectural and historical interest. The house has an impressive, rendered facade, complemented by symmetrical sash windows on either side of the centrally positioned street door. The roof comprises peg-tiles. The house benefits from an independent drive with generous parking to the rear of the house, a rare feature so close to the high street. The property also benefits from being close to the River Blackwater and a variety of amenities including schools.

      The house provides many period features exemplified by exposed timbers, fireplaces and deep sash windows. The accommodation is over four floors, which includes a cellar. At the rear of the house lies a snug within the oldest part of the house, with exposed timbers, a fireplace and dual fuel stove. Stairs from the snug lead down to the cellar rooms, two areas which include a boiler. A kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with Shaker-style units including a dresser, butler sink with a contrasting timber floor and a secondary staircase leading up to the first floor. Adjoining a central hall are two reception rooms at the front of the house. A generous separate dining room has a good deal of natural light and features a marble-framed fireplace, high ceiling and exposed wood floor. A door off provides access to a cloakroom. On the opposite side of the hall is a dual-aspect sitting room with French doors onto the garden and a large sash window with seating under to the front; a fireplace with a dual fuel stove and fitted book shelving provides a focal point for the room. On the first floor are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom has an en suite dressing room and shower room. Bedroom two has an en suite dressing room. On the second floor are two further bedrooms. A third staircase from the family bathroom provides access to the loft with ample storage space.

      An independent drive through electric gates leads to a parking area for three plus cars provided by a brick-paved courtyard. Beyond are generous lawned gardens with borders of shrubs and mature trees. Immediately behind the house, beyond the kitchen, is a single-storey outbuilding divided into two areas - a cart lodge and workshop. Subject to planning and listed building consent, this building provides the potential for further accommodation.

    I love the situation of this wonderful home, between the harbour and the high street, a great home for both upsizers and downsizers alike.
