Thaxted Cottage is a quintessential thatched character home, built in the 1930’s by the renowned builder Frank Chown. The house has been sympathetically extended, whilst retaining the inherent features associated with Chown houses including eyebrow windows, oak beams and oak internal doors. The accommodation is suited to modern living with a mix of formal and informal areas including a fine open plan kitchen/dining/family room, the kitchen featuring country style cabinets and a gas aga. To compliment the ground floor there is a good size formal living room, dining room and conservatory and a useful additional room which can be a fifth bedroom or study/snug, which has access to a ground floor cloakroom/shower room. There are four bedrooms on the first floor the master being a lovely room with en-suite bathroom, in addition to which there is a family bathroom. The gardens are of good size, the plot in total extending to approximately ¼ acre, and with excellent privacy. There is also ample parking for several cars and the potential to build a garage STPP. Glendene Avenue is highly sought after being one of the most prestigious roads, where it is rare that houses come to the market for sale, situated just a short walk from the village centre and station, it offers convenience, in a quiet and peaceful private road location.
