Full Description

A unique detached Grade II listed chocolate box thatched cottage in a private setting, with stunning views. The sun has full access to the garden from dawn to dusk.

This three double bedroom detached cottage has been owned by the same family since 1956. With a 2 storey one bedroom annex with prospective spiral staircase leading to mezzanine first floor bedroom and studio accomadation on the ground floor, suitable for teenager of the family. Could also be used as an office with separate telephone/broadband connection already fitted.
Approx 1/2 acre of land with outstanding uninterrupted views to Castle Hedingham, Essex and Bulmer, Suffolk. This property stands high up in the village and so there is no chance of flooding.

New thatch in 2012 and totally sympathetically restored in 1999/2000 where no expense was spared. New sole plate, damp courses, drains, plumbing, electrics, exterior and interior lime plaster, even new wattle and daub panels from floor to eaves. 
With the annex/office (with separate telephone/broadband line) and double stables/workshop, this property has so much to offer. 

The village of Little Yeldham has many footpaths and bridle ways. Two miles away in Great Yeldham there is a full time postoffice, shops, pubs, restaurants, indian takeaway, fish and chip shop, and small animal vets. Two petrol stations in Sible Hedingham 5 miles away and a comprehensive school. Several near villages have primary schools so there is a choice. Stanstead airport is 26 miles away. For people not familiar with the area a list of excellent trustworthy tradesman is available from the owner. 

The cottage was once two cottages , hence the two staircases. Oil fired heating, plus an 'Esse' oil fired cooking range which heats the water and one bathroom (heat sink) radiator. The amount of heat coming from this range 24/7 even on low heats half of the house alone.It is a very economical house to heat and run. At the moment the 'esse' 24/7 costs £25 p.w. which is very welcoming both with constant warmth and financial cost !! 

There is a superb quality 'Clearview' multifuel wood and coal burner in one inglenook with a new chimney liner in 2011 and an oil fired stove in the other. The heating system relinquishes the need for any unsightly radiators and pipe work. All 3 chimneys are lined and in excellent order. 
At the entrance 12' wide x 6' high security gates to the property. The quality of the workmanship to this property is second to none and it is arguably one of the most structurally sound thatched properties in East Anglia. One of which you are also able to shut the world out if you want calm and privacy in your life. 
Owner can move out quickly if needed by purchaser.
