Located in the picturesque village of Tillingham which has its pretty village green and church, a village shop, two public houses, primary school and doctors surgery.
The area is well known for both its rural and coastal walks but is still only 4.2 miles from Southminster which offers a good selection of shops and a rail link to London Liverpool Street Station.
This very eye appealing Grade ll listed cottage which has a history of being a village shop and a family residence and has been wonderfully redecorated and cared for by the present vendor, both internally and externally.
The cottage has kept so much of its original character and charm and offers very deceptive accommodation including a generous size lounge and dining area with large open fire place, a good size kitchen and a snug which was the original shop. The first floor offers four good size bedrooms which are versatile in use, bathroom and separate w/c.
