Lavenders is a delightful Grade II listed mid-terrace property enjoying a favourable location within the centre of this highly regarded North Essex village overlooking the parish church.

The sitting room has views to both the parish church and rear garden and boasts a wealth of period features including a particularly impressive inglenook fireplace with oak lintel above and wood burning stove set on a raised tiled hearth and an exposed heavy oak frame. Stairs rise to the first floor and an inner hall gives access to the well appointed shower room which is tiled to dado height and has a matching white suite.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units, eye level oven, gas hob with extractor hood over, 1 ½ bowl stainless steel sink and a solid oak stable door to the garden. A ledge and board door leads to a clever extension which provides formal dining space if required and could readily be joined to the kitchen. This room has attractive exposed floorboards, a vaulted ceiling, red brickwork on display and is completed by a bay window giving views to the garden.

The first floor is equally charming and has a landing with exposed oak studwork and a ledge and board door leading to the principal bedroom which is situated to the front of the property and benefits from views of the village. It has a part vaulted ceiling with exposed oak framework on display and a range of built-in wardrobes with linen fold detail doors.

The second bedroom is situated to the rear of the property and overlooks the garden and benefits from a range of built-in wardrobes. A door from the half landing accesses a useful attic space which houses the gas fired boiler and subject to the necessary consents could potentially convert to a second bathroom.

The rear gardens are delightful and are accessed via the stable door in the kitchen to a small courtyard area which has a brick built log store with a tiled roof. A stone path leads to an expanse of lawn which is flanked by a mellow red brick wall with well stocked herbaceous borders. A brick paved terrace with pergola, a mature apple tree and cherry tree provide a focal point.

At the bottom of the garden is a useful studio/workshop which has a pair of stable doors and windows overlooking the garden with a large storage cupboard and this would make for a perfect home office or hobby room if required.
