Abbotts are privileged to welcome to the market the magnificent 18th century, Grade II listed, 'The Old Ferry House' which is busting with charm and character and enjoying around 1/3 of an acre garden which is elegantly understated and breathtakingly impressive in equal measure.This fabulous home oozing with original features, sash windows, beautiful fireplaces and exposed beams, comes with an abundance of space with five double bedrooms including a flexible ground bedroom with en-suite, ideal for multi generation living or an au pair. While the four reception rooms provide plenty of room for the whole family to relax and would offer space for working from home if desired. This stunning property is located in the quaint setting of South Fambridge and a few hundred yards of the River Crouch which we are advised the property benefits from 'river rights' to a small section of, making it ideal for water activities and county walks, while nearby towns of Hockley and Rochford with rail links to London would make this the perfect blend of town and county living.
