This detached, grade two listed farmhouse offers generous living accommodation which totals 4611 square feet (excluding outbuildings). The original part of the property is timber framed and was built around 1400 and there were two subsequent additions in approximately 1600 and 1800.
As the floorplan shows, the ground floor includes an open plan kitchen/breakfast room with farmhouse style units and a range cooker, a sitting room with a series of recessed cupboards and an open fire, a large dining room and a 19 foot study which would suit as a further reception space if required (having an impressive inglenook fireplace and wood burner). There are also two conservatories, and a WC.
The first and second floors provide six double bedrooms between them with these sharing the use of a first floor WC and a family bathroom that also has a separate shower.
The property currently incorporates a self contained one bedroom annexe which has its own front door, kitchen and bathroom. This could provide a useful rental income if required. Alternatively, it could easily be adjusted to provide additional living space for the main residence.
The property is positioned centrally within grounds that total 5.8 acres. The house is approached via a long private driveway which has areas of lawn to both sides which are populated by various beds and trees. To the rear of the house there are around 3 acres of flat grassland which would be suitable for equestrian use and a large area of woodland. There is a second driveway, as well as two useful brick outbuildings and a shed.
The property is boarded on one side by Harts Lane, (a quiet lane leading towards Dedham village) and on the other by the Blue Barns Business Centre, (which includes a number of single storey offices that do not overlook the property or its grounds and which are limited to B1 use only).
The southbound carriageway of the A12, (whilst mostly screened) is around 200 meters from the house. This allows excellent access to Ipswich, Chelmsford and London. Colchester town centre is around three miles away and the village centres of Ardleigh and Dedham are around two miles from the house.
