Located at the end of a gated and private drive, close to the market town of Coggeshall you will find Mulberry House. A beautiful, and very well-presented detached , four double bedroom family home has been updated and modernised over thirteen years since the current sellers moved in, making this 2567 square feet (according to our measurements) house... move in ready.
At the top of the gated and gravelled drive, Mulberry House is enclosed by high brick walls and set back from Kelvedon Road. The house was originally built by a local farmer for his family in the 1980's on this two-acre plot (sts).
From the inviting 19ft entrance hall, the ground and first floor accommodation can be accessed from both ends. The first of the two main reception rooms are a more formal large and light (21'9"x13'9") living room with, high ceilings, a multifuel burner and hearth. The first of two Office/Studies (9'8"x8'5") offers some space for the home working buyer or a studying teenager, with access to the decking and garden.
Through double doors the very sociable and airy (29'6"x 18'6" max) kitchen/family room offers an open plan feel for everyday living, space for comfortable sofas and a place to chill in front of the TV or open the tri-fold doors and bring the outside in for those summer nights of entertaining or alfresco dining on the decking. The modern fitted kitchen has a selection of eye and base level units with, white granite worksurfaces, double butler style sinks, induction hob with extractor hood over and integrated electric oven and grill and dishwasher.
A well-appointed (13'8"x9'11") utility room gives access to the garden and drive for those muddy paws or dirty wellies. again, offering a selection of eye and base level units, plumbing and spaces for washing machines and driers, lots of storage and access to the (16'10"x10'7") garage with light and power an up and over fob activated roller shutter. The second home (9'1"x7'1") office/study and W.C complete the ground floor.
The second floor is welcomed by the large landing, lit by the light décor and the east facing windows, a place to read a book or take a moment is offered in the alcove to the front of the house. There are four bedrooms with the (13'7"x13'1") Master bedroom giving views over the large garden and farm views and the Essex way beyond, fitted wardrobes give plenty of storage, a separate dressing area with further fitted wardrobes and the tasteful En-suite shower room make this a restful retreat for the adults in the house.
To the rear is a large garden with two very distinct areas, one directly from the ground floor of the property through the tri fold doors and onto the decking, with a selection of fruit trees on the lawns all enclosed by a low-level retaining wall.
Access to the paddock behind (unmeasured) is laid to grasses and enclosed by wooden fencing not obscuring the farm views beyond. Two separate metal five bar gates give access to the Essex way and shared drive to Grange Hill and Grange Barn.
A (40'9"x32'9") steel framed and steel-clad barn with ceiling heights of 17 ft, single up and over pully-based roller door has light, power, and water available inside and would be ideal for the vintage car enthusiasts, furniture builders or the home DIY'er.
The property is within walking distance (0.4 miles) to Coggeshall town centre with its array of boutique shops, well known supermarkets, a variety of public house and restaurants. Weekly markets offer fresh produce from local producers and artisan makers, some stunning walks around the village, the National Trusts Paycockes House, Grange Barn, and the river Blackwater offer recreational options to everyone. Schooling is available at St Peters, primary school and the well thought of Honywood secondary school.
Transport links are excellent and one of the reasons in our opinion that Coggeshall is favourable with buyers from out of the local areas. The A12 is a short (1.1 mile) drive taking you east to Colchester and west to Braintree, Chelmsford and the M11 beyond. Train links are accessible from Kelvedon station (2.2 miles) or Marks Tey (4.6 miles) both giving regular links to London Liverpool St, Colchester, Ipswich, and Norwich.
In the opinion of Simon, the local property consultant "Mulberry House is a beautiful family home and probably my favourite listing I've seen in my time in the industry. Close to the village I call home, I can honestly say anyone moving here will love the community feel and all that the local area has to offer. The house is move in ready and hopefully the next owners will love it as much as the current sellers".
