A deceptively spacious five bedroom character cottage including a one bedroom annex, and two garden work shops. Located in the heart of Manuden, ‘Village of the year 2018’, with an Ofsted Outstanding Primary.

The property is located just a short drive from both Bishop’s Stortford and Stansted Mountfichet which provide excellent commuter links, including many high street branded shops, independent retailers, restaurants and bars.


Manuden is a small picturesque village in a designated conservation area, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. The village dates back to the 1100s and it won village of the year 2018. The charm of the village is in its thriving community with an Ofsted Outstanding Primary School, a beautiful church and an impressive new village community center. The village also has a recently refurbished pub The Yew Tree providing delicious food and a boutique B&B.

From Bishops Stortford travel north on the B1004. Continue on the B1004 over the A120 into Hazel End Road, through Hazel End. Arrive in Manuden, 18 The Street is on the right hand side, as you go through the village.

Bishop's Stortford 3.6 miles (38 minutes to London Liverpool Street), Stansted Mountfitchet 2.4 miles (41 minutes to London Liverpool Street), Cambridge 27 miles, M11 (Junction 8) 7.1 miles, M25 (Junction 27) 19 miles. All distances and times are approximate.


This property has great curb appeal. I love the wrought iron railings with the flag stones leading to the covered porch entrance and a solid front door which leads into a very deceptively spacious 2045 sq.ft (approx) interior with lots of character throughout. I do love the original features, exposed beams, feature fireplaces, original wood doors with brass door knobs and exposed floor boards.

The sitting room has an impressive brick fireplace. It is a lovely and light room with a dual aspect and french doors leading into the garden. Across the hallway is the dining room with a feature fireplace, beautiful original built in cupboards and exposed beams and floor boards. This room then leads into the adjoining kitchen / breakfast room with a range of complimentary wood painted fitted cupboards and granite work tops, with a window overlooking the garden. The garden can be accessed by the adjoining rear hallway. The rear hallway also provides access into the adjoining annex which can be used independently as a fully contained one bedroom annex with a separate shower room and kitchen or it can be left fully incorporated with the existing house to provide an additional living room, wc and utility area.

Upstairs there is a recently added master suite with a luxury walk in shower en suite with beautiful muted tone tiling and underfloor heating. There are then two additional generous size bedrooms with fitted cupboards and one of them has a feature fireplace too. The fourth bedroom has a lovely aspect with rear garden views. These bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with a roll top bath and separate shower.


The property benefits from private parking for two to three cars. A side gate provides access to the rear garden. It is very pretty cottage garden with shrub and flower borders, and a sunny patio for entertaining family and friends. For keen hobbyists there are two good sized outbuildings that provide both work space and storage and their black weather boarding compliments the properties architecture.
