A charming thatched cottage, located in Little Chesterford, Essex, has just entered the property market for £1.15 million.

Comprising four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three living spaces, this detached home was created by combining two thatched cottages back in the Victorian times. While it still maintains original features, the property has also had many modern updates, including a newly re-thatched roof.

Entering through the part-glazed entrance, you are immediately met with traditional exposed timbers, bookshelves and beautiful parquet flooring. This hall leads on to the sitting room, the drawing room and a turning staircase that winds upstairs. With beautiful French doors that lead out to the lush south-facing garden, why not enjoy having the doors open and sitting with a good book as the breeze blows in.

The second staircase is found in what could be used as a music room or playroom that also leads into the kitchen/dining room. In the kitchen, a former fireplace now houses an oil-fired AGA but there are plenty of modern amenities too such as a concealed extractor fan, induction hob and Miele electric cooker.

You'll also find a utility room beyond the kitchen with space for a fridge/freezer, as well as a cloakroom, with even more storage.

On the first floor, the master bedroom boasts fantastic views over the garden. The second and third bedrooms are connected by a very unique feature — a Narnia-style cupboard which connects the two halves of the cottage and two of the bedrooms upstairs.

The fourth bedroom is another vaulted double room with loft access and its own en-suite shower room. The family bathroom, also located on this level, features Czech & Speake fittings, including Victorian-style mixer taps and a drench shower.

Outside, there is plenty of space to relax, with a vegetable garden consisting of three raised beds, a Hartley Botanic greenhouse and a handy shed — perfect for the green-fingered among you. If you prefer enjoying the sun, there is a double-glazed summer house with French doors that can give you that indoor outdoor living that so many would love to have in their home, particularly in the warmer months.

In addition to all this, there is also a garden room, perfect for entertaining friends and family or to use as a separate work from home space, plus a garage with mezzanine storage.

Bank Cottage is located in the lovely village of Little Chesterford, approximately 12 miles south of Cambridge. There’s also regular train service to London Liverpool Street and motorway access to the north and south.

The property is currently on the market for £1,150,000 via Savills.
