Full property description
Folio: 14779 Gatehouse is a carefully considered country cottage, with a façade of red brick and render which has been redesigned in a pared back palette. Tednambury, a small 12th century hamlet sitting on the Stort Navigation river, is easily accessible to both Sawbridgeworth and Bishops Stortford with train links to London, Stansted and Cambridge, educational facilities, wide variety of shops and community resources.
The house of some 1543 sq.ft has evolved over time and the owners have created a space of interconnecting rooms which offer functional, split level living whilst remaining full of surprise and character. At the heart of the house is the kitchen and cosy dining room wrapped around an open fire from which there are elevated views across further reception rooms towards the conservatory.
The latter offers multiple aspects to blur the division between indoors and outdoors, with the rear garden offering an incredibly private space with walls of greenery and excellent sunlight from the east and south throughout the day. Both front and rear gardens have been extensively developed by the owners with their love of design and horticulture.
The upper floor is the main bedroom suite and flows across the dressing room, bedroom and bathroom. The quality of the light is exceptional at different parts of the day with a view of the sunrise over the fields early in the morning.
