A seamlessly extended and character rich rural cottage with three substantial double bedrooms that has excellent parking facilities and a lovely outlook to the rear over allotments to farmland on the horizon.

Myrtle Cottage is a charming purchase proposition for those looking to escape to a rural yet well connected village in North Essex.

The property has been immaculately kept and cared for during the time of the current custodians and it offers three substantial double bedrooms upstairs (the first with an ensuite and lovely views at the rear) whilst downstairs there is a beamed dual aspect dining room to the front and a spacious beamed living room with full height red brick fireplace and ornate red brick bread oven.

A country-styled kitchen breakfast room awaits you at the rear of the property and this leads out to a patio retaining an immaculately kept garden at the rear.

The owners currently enjoy use of a large allotment directly behind their property. Discussions with the landowner seem positive about continued use of this land by future custodians of Myrtle Cottage.
