The area is widely referrred to as "Constable Country" is renowned for its natural beauty, clean air and countryside walks, coupled with its easy access to the A12 through to Ipswich, Colchester and London and A14 To Cambridge, Bury, and Felixstowe. The immediate vicinity is walking distance to some popular Dedham haunts including The Boat House restaurant, Dedham Centre and Essex Rose Team Rooms.

The cottage oozes kerb appeal. The front garden is accessed through a picket fence and a pathway leads up to the front door. A plethora of mature shrubs and small trees line the boundary with a lush green lawn and small patio area underneath the glaze of the lounge window.

Entry is straight into the living room which benefits from a brick surround open fireplace a wonderful period feature. Stripped wood flooring allows for easy maintenance and adds to the cosy, welcoming ambience.

An archway opening leads into the fitted kitchen, bespoke design in a country style in keeping of the style of the property, it includes an electric cooker and hob, integrated fridge, washer/dryer and microwave with ample base and wall units providing storage. An understair cupboard provides yet more storage.

Up on the first floor the accomodation comprises a front aspect Master bedroom, continuing the light and homely feel, again an excellent size, neutrally decorated with stripped wood flooring.

Bedroom two is a smaller double rear aspect again continuing the neutral theme, with its shape and good size it can be tailored to the occupants and it would potentially work well as a home office/study, creative space, or guest bedroom.

There is a shared courtyard garden to the rear, and there is access back to the front for waste and recycling bins. An allocated parking space is included in the near by Mill car park.

The cottage is heated by new style electric panel heaters, and the solid fuel burner is extremely efficient and comforting during the winter months.
