GEORGIAN - Occupying one of the most attractive and historic parts of the village scene, this highly appealing Georgian property enjoys a most characterful interior with a wonderful, walled garden and private driveway with garage.
'100 High Street' presents an opportunity to enjoy period living in the very heart of Ingatestone, with the many and varied amenities of this esteemed village all within strolling distance. This fine Listed (Grade II) home is one of only a few timber-framed homes of this style in Ingatestone with superb ceiling heights, offering immense charm behind a beautiful façade, enhanced by a variety of traditional materials, including clay roof tiles, brick fireplaces, and exposed internal joinery. Stone steps and elegant wrought iron railings lead to a Georgian, pilastered front doorcase, which in turn gives access to an entrance vestibule, leading to a front parlour of superb proportions, providing both a panelled study/entrance hall, and living room with front and rear aspect windows; an inglenook fireplace; and unique galley-style library discreetly located by the chimney breast. A dining area connects the front parlour to the kitchen, from where views of the garden can be fully enjoyed. A utility room sits to the rear, and we consider there to be potential to extend the kitchen, subject to Planning & Listed Building consents.
A fine staircase rises through the centre of the house with a tall rear window providing excellent natural light to the landing. The principal bedroom, situated at the front of the house, enjoys two deep sash windows and a further window overlooking the beautiful rear garden, as well as a feature fireplace.
