CIRCA 1820: A landmark property within the village of Ingatestone, Bakehouse Cottage is a delightful period cottage (not Listed) with origins from the early 1800's, extended and meticulously modernised in recent years by the present owners.
The name Bakehouse Cottage arises from the small former bakehouse within the grounds, which remains today and offers a variety of potential uses, including a home office or studio, or simply a workshop and garden store.
The property is positioned on the corner of High Street and New Road, with a private driveway accessed via New Road leading to a large, fence-enclosed parking area. Externally there is also a cottage garden wrapping around the rear and side of the dwelling.
Following the sympathetic renovation, the property now offers modern living accommodation remaining in total harmony with the original feel and character of the building, taking advantage of features such as exposed chimney breasts and original timbers. The ground floor layout provides a semi-open plan arrangement of living space, with four distinct areas to include an entrance hall/sitting room, lounge, dining area and kitchen. The dining area enjoys a contemporary twist, with a pair of bifolding doors to the rear garden with a cantilevered design, effectively removing the corner of the room when fully opened and bringing the garden 'indoors'. In addition, there is a separate utility room and ground floor WC.
The first floor commences with a gallery style landing giving access to five rooms; namely, three bedrooms, a dressing room/fourth bedroom, and a beautiful main bathroom. The master bedroom also enjoys a luxury en-suite shower room.
This much-admired home presents a wonderful opportunity for purchasers seeking a period home in the heart of this thriving village, also benefitting from excellent road and rail links within immediate reach (Ingatestone Station is just a 10-12 minute walk away). Read more
