PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: Nevards forms a striking individual residence, of timber framed construction and set beneath a roofline thatched in reed, enjoying a rural situation amidst picturesque surroundings within the well-regarded North Essex village of Boxted. Enjoying a southerly front aspect, the principal residence is understood to have been extended in the 1960s and in its present form offers hugely versatile accommodation arranged over two floors comprising three main reception rooms. Comprising a linear floor arrangement, the original building is understood to have previously formed a number of cottages and has retained notable features including an array of exposed timbers and studwork, exposed redbrick fireplace, doors complete with Suffolk latches, engineered oak flooring and timber framed bespoke casement and sash windows. A unique lifestyle opportunity for those looking to combine external living with a fine country home of historical origins, the accommodation is unusually light for a property of this ilk with many rooms enjoying a dual if not triple aspect. The bespoke, handmade kitchen is fitted with an array of pine units with extensive granite surfaces, central island and a triple aspect with French doors opening to the south-facing terrace. Continuing beyond the kitchen, the sitting room operates as the principal reception space with plantation shutters and views across the south-facing terrace, a versatile dining room provides an ideal entertaining space with entrance hall off and snug with engineered oak flooring, exposed fireplace and array of timber and studwork. A craft room is set beneath a pitched roofline, ideally placed as an office/study and afforded a dual aspect with casement windows to front and side elevation. Completing the ground-floor accommodation is a cloakroom and rear hall with terracotta tiled flooring. Four first-floor double bedrooms are well presented throughout, arranged via a central landing with oak landing rail and glass panelling. All four bedrooms enjoy distinctive, differing aspects with views across the gardens, south-facing terrace or adjacent farmland. The principal suite benefits from mirror fronted fitted wardrobes with complementing high-specification en-suite shower room facilities. A centrally located family bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms.

The outbuildings provide a unique appeal to this rarely available lifestyle opportunity with a vaulted, dual aspect summer room affording a wealth of natural light with exposed timber work, tiled flooring, casement windows to front and rear and French doors opening to the terrace and gardens beyond. An Indian sandstone walkway is set between the principal residence and outbuilding which is partitioned to create a central walkway and vaulted garden room with tiled flooring, adjacent kitchenette and cloakroom facilities.

The gardens are discretely set with the south-facing terrace forming the principal entertaining area, well-paced for the midday to evening sun and bordered by a covered fish pond with water feature, perennial and evergreen planting, original well with box hedged surround and established fir tree and silver birch. A mature hedge line border to front provides complete screening from Ellis Road with covered walkways, pergola and raised terrace providing a further seating area. A shingled walkway beyond links to the covered barbeque area finished in Indian sandstone.

The diverse gardens are arranged into a variety of 'rooms' with well-maintained fencing, range of border planting and area of raised beds with covered log store. Gated access opens into a further expanse of lawn, completely private with both fence and hedge line border, established planting and walkway through to a further screened area with substantial outbuilding. The two further outbuildings within the grounds are ideally placed for vehicle storage or possible conversion or equestrian use (subject to relevant planning permissions).

SITUATION: Nevards is discretely positioned on a quiet lane serving a handful of properties within the much sought-after North Essex village of Boxted. Accessible for the historic Roman town of Colchester, A12 trunk road, A134 and the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Affording an outstanding aspect across uninterrupted farmland to the west, the overall accommodation has enjoyed significant extension, adaption and enhancement by the current owners. Set within 2.1-acre grounds, the property is well placed for countryside walks, a range of accessible footpath networks and a short drive to an extensive range of amenities, both state and independent schooling for all ages and a main train line to London Liverpool Street. The town of Colchester is approximately 4 miles by car, Chelmsford approximately 38 minutes by car and Bury St Edmunds 45 minutes by car.
