Welcome to 32 Colchester Road
A simply charming two bedroom Grade II listed cottage dating back to 1501, situated in a quintessential English village. Wonderful period features including exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner plus original stone flooring. There is a living/dining room, kitchen, bath/shower room, and two first floor bedrooms off a gallery landing. And outside, a lovely secluded rear cottage garden with an outbuilding and a shed, and a pretty side garden leads to the front door. St Osyth village is steeped in history with a 12th century Priory. And the front of this property enjoys an outlook over the Priory grounds opposite. Local amenities include a Post Office, Spar convenience store, a butcher, plus a village fish and chip shop, and three pubs. With good bus transport links to neighbouring Clacton, plus Colchester.
Open the garden gate to the pretty side garden and approach the front door of your new home. Stepping inside onto the original stone flooring you will see two doors. Unlatch the door ahead of you and you instantly feel the character of this charming period home. Wonderful exposed beams plus the cosiness of the inglenook fireplace with its wood burner create a nostalgic scene of times past. Why not sit for a moment and picture being amongst your own furnishings and treasured possessions. Open the door to the kitchen and you will notice there is a breakfast bar. This is nice to sit up to with your morning cup of tea or coffee with the door to the garden open in the summer to catch the first easterly rays of sun. Or your washing machine may have just finished its wash cycle for you to hang out! Before you head upstairs if you return to the entrance hall you will find the location of the bath/shower room.
The start of the lovely turning stairway is revealed behind a door in the living/dining room. Passing a door on your left; to an understairs cloaks cupboard, and then up past the brickwork of the lovely rising chimney breast, you will arrive at the naturally bright gallery landing. You will notice, before entering the bedrooms, a set of double doors and a single door to storage cupboards. The master bedroom is full of character showing also the rising chimney breast; with the airing cupboard next to this, plus exposed beams and partially sloping ceiling. And note the fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom is L-shaped, and it could be used as a dressing room or a study.
Walk into the secluded rear garden, and imagine enjoying some relaxing time either doing a spot of gardening or just spending a lazy day in the sunshine or pick a shady area – the choice is yours! The trees are lovely and to be appreciated, because being in a conservation area they are here to stay.
