Property Description

A quintessential period home with a mature, terraced courtyard garden and some quaint interior features including exposed beams, solid oak floors and an inglenook fireplace, Claremont Cottage is everything you would expect from a traditional English abode. Immaculately presented, the property boasts authentic 16th century architecture, offering comfortable and functional accommodation in an evocative setting.

Interior
The front door opens into a striking reception hallway, currently decorated in a vibrant blue which offers contrast to the solid oak floors, exposed beams, a rustic solid-wood door to the under-stairs storage and wood panelling beneath carpeted stairs. Internal doors also lead in turn to the kitchen, dining room and lounge. The kitchen and dining room quarry style floor tiles with more exposed beams above. The kitchen is fitted with base and wall units, incorporating solid oak worktops illuminated by hanging lamps above. A four-ring gas hob and electric oven, along with a ceramic Belfast-style sink with mixer tap, are fitted beneath double windows overlooking the rear courtyard garden, which is also accessed via an external door from the kitchen. The living area has solid oak floors and exposed beams but also perhaps the home\'s most striking feature – an inglenook fireplace with red brick surround and wood lintel, framing a cast-iron stove. Windows to three sides of the room allow in plenty of light. Doors from the carpeted first-floor landing open into the two double bedrooms, the master a wonderful vaulted ceiling. The second bedroom an in-built storage cupboard. The house bathroom features pretty patterned tiling around the bath and traditional brass shower rose, which also includes a shelf and mirror above and WC.

Exterior
Claremont Cottage abuts Freshwell Street, the black gloss front door and decorative pargetting overlooking the no through road which is set off the northern reach of the High Street. The delightful, private courtyard garden lies to the rear, with a step up from flagstones onto a block-paved terrace surrounded by shrubs that offer privacy from neighbouring properties.

In our opinion, this is a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional property, tastefully blending delightful historic features with modern home comforts. As ever, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing to appreciate both the convenient market town location as well as the high standard of accommodation on offer.

Location
Freshwell Street lies on the north-western edge of the historic market town of Saffron Walden, just to the east of the M11 between Cambridge and Bishop Stortford. A short walk down the road will bring to the old, original well leading to the pond at Freshwell meadows. The community is served by the railway station at nearby Audley End, just over an hour from London\'s Liverpool Street, while for those travelling further afield, Stansted Airport is within half an hour\'s drive by car. The town itself boasts a thriving centre mixing small, independent shops with a selection of high street chain stores, convenience stores,a post office and an impressive selection of pubs and restaurants. Both Waitrose and Tesco have a presence while the town is also served by a community hospital. Facilities within a short walk of Claremont Cottage include the historic Eight Bells pub, serving a blend of modern and traditional British dishes, and the Saffron Walden Golf Club. The town\'s County High School – rated “outstanding” by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2012 - is within easy reach. While Tottenham is approximately 45 minutes away on train, where you can get a connecting tube train to Oxford Circus in approximately 17 minutes.
