Zig Zag Cottage in Great Oakley has seen considerable changes in the 50 year tenure of the current owner. None so more withstanding than the meticulous ongoing renovation of the property which has included the restoration and retention all original features and details of the building combined with the use of interesting reclaimed period and traditional fittings.

This cottage is brimming with Character throughout. The reception rooms downstairs are breath-taking, from the sand blasted reclamation of heavily beamed ceilings through to red brick inglenook fireplaces and block paved flooring expect this viewing to take considerable time to fully absorb the cottage's historic ambience.

At the rear of the cottage is a large conservatory almost spanning the entire length of the house and oriented South ensuring it is basked in sunlight throughout the day.

Upstairs the quirky and jovial feel of this property continues. From a split-level landing you can access the first three bedrooms and a fully tiled bathroom.

This is an area perfect for its own self-contained accommodation if required. The second bedroom is a double with built-in tall storage cupboards and the next bedroom a single.


As you continue to the Eastern side of the property upstairs you will note that there is still some work to do. Walls have been recently plastered in areas and the large Bathroom on the boundary of the building remains unfinished. This bathroom is spacious and could be converted to another bedroom with Ensuite. Just across the hall from here is another double bedroom and a second bathroom.

The private walled rear garden is predominantly laid to intricate historic clay pavers and benefits from the original C17 well and a Koi-Pond. At the rear you will also find a well fitted workshop and a detached annex with its own Living space, Kitchenette and shower room.
