Henry Ward Waltham Abbey are proud to present this stunning period cottage set in an idyllic location with surrounding countryside and farmland. This two double bedroom semi detached home has been highly maintained by its current owners with decor in keeping with the period of build. The property also benefits from off street parking for at least two vehicles, a 23’ lounge and a rear garden overlooking rolling fields. Other benefits include close proximity to acres of Lea Valley Regional Parkland.

The Crooked Mile winds its way through countryside and agricultural land heading out toward Nazeing. The property is located approximately 1mile along the road from Waltham Abbeys Town Centre. A gravel driveway provides off street parking spaces and a side gate allows access to the garden.

Entrance to the property is gained via the front door that opens into the hallway where you will find stairs ascending to the first floor and an internal door leading to the lounge. The current owners use this room as two separate spaces, to the front the lounging area complete with its leaded light double glazed window and the cottage style open fireplace and real fuel burning stove. Bespoke oak shelving and storage cupboards has been built into the alcoves. To the rear a dining area with its double doors to the garden providing the stunning views over the fields and a stripped wooden door leading to the kitchen. An added bonus is the downstairs cloakroom along with a large built in storage cupboard.

The kitchen is extremely light and bright thanks to the dual aspect windows and has a range of base and wall mounted cream units with contrasting work surfaces. There is space for appliances and a range style cooker. A glazed door allows access to the garden.

Upstairs, and towards the front you will find the master bedroom with a period style fireplace and inbuilt wardrobe space. The second bedroom, a good size double, also enjoys these period features and has superb views to the rear aspect. Off Landing, you will find the family bathroom. This is a beautiful room with exposed timber beams and a roll top bath sunken into a mosaic tiled base.

One of the best features of this property is undoubtedly the garden and its position backing the fields. The views heading out toward Galley Hill are superb where deer and other wildlife can be spotted regularly. The garden itself is mostly laid lawn with a paved patio area and a low picket fence that makes the most of the view.
