Property Description

Nestled amid a serene woodland setting, Tendrings Cottage boasts an enchanting 150ft tree-lined driveway, creating an impressive approach reminiscent of a cinematic scene. This 30-year-old residence promises a private and tranquil lifestyle surrounded by open fields, often graced by deer and muntjacs, with no tree protection orders or listing constraints.

As you traverse the picturesque driveway, you are greeted by a sprawling meadow adorned with mature trees and vibrant flowers. The property includes a substantial double garage situated to the right of the driveway. The house itself, positioned on the left, welcomes you with a covered porch that leads into a capacious entrance hallway. Adjacent facilities include a versatile storage space, a downstairs shower room, and convenient access to a boiler room and separate utility room, which also opens to a verdant garden.

The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen/dining area, awaiting a personal touch to transform it into a culinary paradise. This area benefits from dual views: one overlooking a secluded courtyard with a substantial brick storage shed and greenhouse, and the other extending into a private garden section leading to the meadow. Adjacent to the kitchen, the spacious living room, featuring a prominent fireplace, offers dual garden views and forms a seamless flow back to the entrance hallway.

Ascending the stairs, past the feature windows offering expansive field views, you arrive at a generous landing that distributes to three large bedrooms. The principal bedroom includes built-in wardrobes and a dedicated lookout with a Juliet balcony overlooking the meadow garden. There are two additional well-proportioned bedrooms and two family bathrooms, each providing scenic views of the surrounding fields.

Tendrings Cottage has been equipped with high-quality improvements including a new condensing boiler, underfloor heating preparation, and comprehensive insulation for thermal and noise control. The property also features a state-of-the-art 3.3 kW solar system, expandable to 5 kW, complete with a 25 kWh battery pack, supported by a smart solar charger from Victron Energy. Furthermore, the potential relocation of the oil tank near the shed adds to the practicality of the grounds.

This unique home offers an outstanding opportunity to finalise a vision of countryside living. With its foundational upgrades and untouched potential, Tendrings Cottage is ideal for those looking to imprint their personal style and enjoy the benefits of a peaceful, private setting.
