A Property of Two Halves
The property known as "Coes" is a listed building which has been tastefully modernised by its current owners to create a stunning blend of both modern and character property dating back to 1529. The current owners use the rear entrance hall with large glass windows and doors to both the front and rear as the entrance hall. To the right is the old cottage which opens into a rear lobby with downstairs bathroom with window to rear aspect and metal roll-top claw footed bath, pedestal style wash hand basin and WC. Through the lobby is the kitchen/breakfast room which is where the original front door is located offering fitted units with inset sink, exposed beams and log burner. Through this space is what was used originally as a sitting room with an abundance of period features including another log burner and exposed beams, this room is currently being used as a downstairs bedroom. To the first floor of the original property are two good double sized bedrooms with exposed beams, built in wardrobes and windows to front and rear aspects.
From the entrance hall to the left is the "new" part of property, having been extended in 2009 with a no expenses' spared attitude consisting of a downstairs utility room with built-in units incorporating a butler sink and washing machine. The lounge area opens from the entrance hall with impressive open fireplace, windows to dual aspects, solid oak flooring and french doors leading into the garden/dining room which benefits from a tiled roof keeping this space warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, french doors then lead into the garden beyond. There are separate stairs which lead to the first floor master bedroom suite with vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and windows to both the front and rear with stunning views over the wildflower meadow to the rear, the en-suite bathroom consists of a bath (with wall mounted TV) double shower cubicle, close couple WC and pedestal style wash hand basin with mirror over and dual aspect windows with stunning views across the valley.
Coes benefits from about 1.25 acres of grounds in total, much of it has been seeded as a wildflower meadow which gives a wealth of colour infront of the meadow is set to lawn and includes a large self maintaining pond which is home to an abundance of fish, dragon flies and other wildlife. There are a number of external facilities including a large shed 20'/10' and wood stores.
There is a large gravel driveway with ample parking for a number of vehicles and a five bar gate giving access to the meadow. There is also planning permission granted for a cart lodge (details on request) which would give undercover parking and storage.
Coes is situated just outside of the small village of Mount Bures in a small cluster of five character properties. The property is in a peaceful setting yet is easily accessible to both Sudbury to the North and Colchester to the South both within about 15 minutes drive, with Colchester Mainline Station being just 7 miles away. Bures village is just 1.5 miles away which benefits from a number of public houses, train station, primary school, post office, village shop and a thriving village community.
Whilst not requiring an EPC the property has been adapted by the current owners to be as energy efficient as possible with a bank of solar thermal tubes providing completely free domestic hot water for approximately 6 months of the year which is banked in an efficient 500L thermal store. During the winter months the thermal store is heated by a large wood burning stove linked to a central heating system serving radiators to all rooms of the property. With the addition of high spec thermal insulation and super-efficient LED lighting throughout, and the maximum possible Renewable Heat Incentive solar rebate payments from the government factored in, the total utility outgoings are in the region of just £75/month.
