Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
If you are looking for a period property, with all the enchantment of yesteryear- look no further than The Old Police House. This charming home was once the Police House for the local Constable of the village, and dates back to the 1930's. Situated in the picturesque village of Ridgewell, surrounded by a beautiful well-established garden, which is further complimented by panoramic views of the Essex countryside. On entering the property, you are greeted with a grand hallway, leading onto the first of three reception rooms. The Reading Room offers a quiet space for reading or just relaxing away from all the hustle and bustle. This space could also be used as a ground floor bedroom; as adjacent to this is an en-suite shower room; perfect for a teenager who needs their own space, or a private space for your guests to stay. There is an impressive dining room, large enough to accommodate the whole family and more. Following on, you have a cosy lounge with 'multi fuel' burner; a real desire for this time of the year! The lounge also boasts French doors out onto the patio, which is perfect for letting the outside in once the summer returns. The hub of the home in this property certainly is the kitchen. It has everything you could possibly want and more, including integrated appliances and room for a breakfast bar. It is the perfect balance of traditional with a modern edge. Upstairs, the immensity of the space is remarkable. The landing is one-of-a-kind with an awe-inspiring stain glass window, which floods the space with natural light and reflects a stunning display of colour.To complete the property, there are three sizeable bedrooms, that are serviced by a generous family bathroom, and a separate study. Outside, the driveway is large enough to park around twelve vehicles and has a grand iron-gated entrance. To the rear, the garden stretches as far as you can see; and has different sections so can be used for a multitude of functions. Whether you are someone who enjoys playing a bit of football, bouncing on a trampoline or growing your very own vegetables, there is something for everyone. This inspiring property is a rare-find on today's market; and an opportunity not to be missed.
