Virtual Tour

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a charming Grade II listed Cottage in excess of 2,400 sq. feet (including outbuildings) nestled within a secured plot of approximately 0.2 acres found in the very heart of the historic market town of Manningtree.

Formerly three cottages, Yewtree Cottage is now a substantial residence located in a large plot (0.2 acre) which wraps around all elevations with garaging and off street parking found to the rear.

For such a centrally located property it is rare to find such a large garden and it is a testament to the home, location and plot that the cottage has been within the same family's ownership for many years.

Whilst charming and packed full of period features any potential buyer should be aware that this property would benefit from adding value through improvement and modernisation.

Outside you will find that there are a number of substantial and useful outbuildings. In the mature garden behind the garage to the rear is a timber ex-stable of 8.98m x 2.98m with light and power connected and directly behind the Kitchen to the rear are two further conventionally built split level outbuildings of 4.89m x 7.34m (including a shower room) and of 3.97m x 2.87m respectively.


Yewtree cottage itself is brimming with features of its period and these include sash and bay windows, stripped wood flooring, Inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams all under a pan tiled roof.

At the front of the property you will find an elegant Bay fronted Drawing Room with stripped wood flooring and also a beamed split level reception room hosting an Inglenook fireplace and large glazed window looking out to the garden at the South. Behind the Living Room is a sunny garden room again with exposed beam work and quarry tiled flooring leading out to the garden.

The Kitchen is an excellent size and we are sure, whilst immediately usable, this will be updated to taste.

The rear of the property has been used as a self-contained unit with Bathroom, Kitchenette and a further reception room or bedroom.


Upstairs, leading off the landing are three bedrooms, the Master having and Ensuite and all offering an elevated view of the immediate town.
