PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Hidden from view and located in a charming, picturesque setting is this Grade II listed timber framed residence understood to date from the 17th Century. Tucked away amongst picturesque surroundings, within the historic village of Wormingford, part of the Stour Valley made famous by the paintings of John Constable, is this aesthetically striking opportunity, notable for its central gabled porch with verge boards and carved finial. A versatile and adaptable period property, the property offers four bedrooms (one en-suite) and is complemented by three reception rooms retaining a wealth of individual charm, character and notable period features throughout including a wealth of exposed timbers and studwork, eight-pane casement windows, a dual-sided red brick fireplace, doors complete with Suffolk latches and exposed oak timber flooring. Further benefits to the property include a detached double garage, ample private parking set at the foot of a brick paved driveway and striking grounds with a brook and total plot size of approximately 0.5 acres. This quintessential English property sits within the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a conservation area, affording the property with direct access to the beautiful English countryside.
The Dell is within the catchment area for the highly desirable Fordham All Saints primary school, which last year achieved an Outstanding grading by Ofsted, as well as being close to a host of well-established private schools such as Colchester High, Holmwood House, St Mary's and Oxford House.
