Church Street, Braintree


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Situated on the sought after 'Bocking Church Street' is this utterly charming four bedroom grade II Listed property originally built for the managers of Courtauld's mill in 1872. This property is one of ten and enjoys an abundance of character features including the unique honeycomb metal windows that were imported from Flanders. This property enjoys a wealth of history. Originally, the current Breakfast Room was a courtyard containing the old rainwater well which fed the pump in the wash house - The pump is still in situ in the utility room. In 1914, what is now the kitchen extension was a bathroom and separate lavatory. This property was the last of 5 of the houses to have this work completed as the work was abandoned when the men enlisted for the war effort. Sadly, not enough men returned from war to continue the work to the remaining 5 houses. The main reason this beautiful home is Grade II listed is due to the stunning honeycomb windows and it was one of the earliest houses to be built with cavity walls. In its current condition, this property is presented in excellent order throughout as it has been extensively modernised to a very high standard by the current owners who have been lucky enough to have owned this lovely property since 2004. This family home enjoys a large enclosed rear garden and such features as vaulted ceilings, open fire places and comes with all of the charm and character that you would expect from a property of this type.
