A substantial detached property in the sought after village of Wethersfield, The Hoods offers a wealth of period features from the 16th and 17th centuries. Constructed of timber frame and mainly plastered elevations under a mainly clay tiled roof, every room has exceptional appeal, from solid floorboards, open stud work, high ceilings and beams to the important circa 500 year old fresco which features Adam and Eve figures topped by a Genesis script (EMAP3/V24). The main reception room offers two redbrick fireplaces, one of which houses a wood burning stove. The dining room, mainly of16th century construction, also has an open fireplace and the fresco shown above. The conservatory is of oak and brick construction and offers pleasant views into the enclosed garden. The kitchen/breakfast room area features a range solid fuel cooker and ample room for kitchen furniture. Upstairs, via the exposed timber stairway, the galleried landing gives access to master and second bedrooms. Bedroom three is through the second. A family bathroom with roll top bath, low level w.c, and wash hand basin completes the surprisingly spacious living space. To the rear, a substantial dry cellar offers ample storage. The two Storey Annexe is built in brick, with wood elevations. This addition to the main house offers considerable extra accommodation currently used for storage and as a day office, it could easily be converted as a Granny Annexe, subject to usual permissions. The garden is delightfully mature, with two paved patio areas, borders, shrubs and trees. A greenhouse is also located at the end. To the right, a five-bar gate way gives access to a side drive, which will accommodate several vehicles. It also allows access via a second gate to the rear garden. In conclusion, The Hoods is located in a quiet, but easily accessible village with easy access to the A120 and M11. The property has been carefully maintained by the current owners to offer a piece of history with modern convenience. A viewing is highly recommended.
