*Off Street Parking for 2/3 Vehicles and Double Garage* New to the market is this quaint and quirky Grade II listed cottage that dates back to the 18th Century and has been in the same ownership for over 25 years, being well maintained and visibly loved by the current owners. This home is located in Stanstead Abbotts, just a short walk away from the High Street and St Margaret’s Station which goes directly to Liverpool Street.

As you approach the property, this home has fantastic kerb appeal, with a paved pathway leading you past the front garden and under a beautiful archway where you will find the front door on your left. Entering through the front door you are welcomed by the traditional living room, which formed part of the original dwelling. This room is a fantastic living space, with large windows creating a lot of light, as well as beautiful features including a log burner inset within an exposed brick feature fireplace, a large built in storage cupboard, cream carpet throughout and original ceiling beams. This room is truly the ideal cosy living room.

Continuing through into the second reception space, this is currently used as a dining room and has been tastefully decorated with neutral walls and wood effect laminate flooring, and also has a large sash window with views overlooking the rear garden. As well as being a spacious room for dining furniture, there are also two storage cupboards, one of which houses the boiler and water softener and another which acts as an under the stairs cupboard. To the right of this room are stairs leading to the upper levels.

As you continue through to the back of the property, this is where the kitchen is located. If you are looking for a traditional cottage kitchen, then you will not be disappointed. This kitchen has been tastefully designed with a range of cream wall and base units, paired with black worktops and terracotta tiled flooring, and includes features such as a butler sink with a chrome tap, a stable door providing access into the garden and two windows. There is also plentiful space for a fridge/freezer, gas hob/oven and washing machine.

Heading upstairs onto first floor, the staircase is framed by original beams which creates a wealth of character. On your right you will find the principle bedroom which is a fantastic size room with high ceilings. Having been neutrally decorated with cream walls, cream built-in wardrobes, a black feature fireplace and a large sash window overlooking the rear garden, this is a beautiful room. There is also a loft hatch in this room for access into the loft.

The third bedroom is also located on this floor, which again, is a good sized room with charming beams that make this a very unique room. The current owners use this as a spare room/study/ craft room as the layout works well. There is space for a small double bed, and there is an alcove towards the front of the room which is the ideal space for a desk/storage. There is also space for a freestanding wardrobe.

Completing this floor is the family bathroom, which is a fantastic size and an addition made by the current owners. The décor of this bathroom is in keeping with the rest of the property, with part tiled walls, beams and a neutral suite. The bathroom comprises of a four piece suite, including a bathtub, cubicle shower with a chrome hand held shower head, a white sink and a high level flush WC. There is also additional storage.

Going up to the second level, this homes the second bedroom. Having been converted prior to their ownership, the owners have since decorated and made this a useable space. This room easily fits a double bed and bedside tables, and has been decorated with grey carpet and light grey/white walls. There is room for built in storage to be added and a window creating much light.

Heading back downstairs and out into the East-facing rear garden, this is a very deceptive and extensive garden that has an impressive variety of spaces. As you step out from the kitchen, you are welcome by the first patio area, and as you step up a few steps there is another patio area which is ideal for al-fresco dining. To the right of this is a large storage shed with electricity, and there is a parking space in front of this. There are then a few more steps that lead you up to an area laid to lawn, that is surrounded with mature shrubs and plants which are beautiful in summer months.

Towards the end of the garden is a very large double garage which the current owners built, this is insulated and has water supply and is the ideal space for an office or potential annexe. There is also parking to the rear of the garage for 2-3 vehicles.
