Are you Iooking for something special, steeped in history, full of country character with some presence? Does it need to be within reach of main transport links, good schools and everyday life? Do you want to be able to go for country walks or stop off for lunch at a country pub? Look no further than this charming cottage in Herongate which can give you all of this and more, with the potential to adapt and be flexible to suit your family’s needs. The owner has enjoyed living here for some time but it is now time for another family to grow here and experience this stylish home and the gorgeous uninterrupted views of farmland for themselves!
Driving through Herongate from Brentwood, past the cricket green and village pubs, Peartree Cottage can be found on the left hand side of Billericay Road. The hedgerow to the side of the cottage frames the block paved driveway to this house where 4 or 5 cars can be parked with ease. A picket garden fence and low hedging fronts this cottage perfectly and leads you to the cottage front door.
Step inside the light, welcoming hallway and soak in that country feel. Pine doors leading from the hallway take you to each of the ground floor rooms where you will notice how light and bright this cottage is. Taking the door on the right leads you into the large living area with views to the front and side of the house. The exposed brickwork chimney breast and character stove gives you that rustic style found typically in country homes. Add to this the feature timber- beamed recess through to the kitchen and the wooden style flooring and this oozes country cottage charm!
A downstairs cloakroom with shower leads off this living area making this room ideal if you need ground floor accessibility and want the flexibility to change this room into a fourth bedroom or an annexe-style space for extended family.
Another door leads from this living area to the kitchen where the country feel continues. The tiled floor and granite style worktops compliment the white units, butler sink and freestanding furniture. Passing the kitchen window with amazing views out over the farmland and fields, you move into the light dining room which has windows to the side of the cottage and more amazing views! Here you can quite easily entertain upwards of 8 friends or family members, talk to them whilst you are cooking, let them admire your views while they wait for their meal and then throw open the French doors for an after dinner drink! More about the great outdoors later!
Once inside the hall again, the room on your left is currently being used as a study. It is another spacious, bright room and has French doors leading to the side aspect of the cottage. Could this be your new home office, playroom, music room or snug? Maybe you could connect this room to the dining room and kitchen to make this a large open plan family living space (subject to planning consents of course!). You decide!
Taking the stairs to the first floor reveals further delights where 3 double bedrooms and a family bathroom await. The large master bedroom has wooden style flooring, an en-suite with shower, an area which could serve as a dressing space and views of the fields to the rear of the cottage. Magnificent!
Along the landing you will find the other two bedrooms which are both bright and spacious and they also have those amazing views! One bedroom has an area which could be a dressing space or may even house your comfy bedtime reading chair! The family bathroom is part tiled with a bath and storage areas.
OUTSIDE: Those French doors from the dining room take you out to a very spacious patio area for entertaining, a generous lawn and then... those uninterrupted farmland views! The picket fence and gate at the side of the cottage leads you back through to that spacious driveway.
If you want to live the country life but still be able to easily reach the world going on around you, come and take a look at this cottage. You won’t be disappointed! Call us today to take a look around!
