A delightful detached Country Cottage enjoying a peaceful setting now suitable for renovation or possible redevelopment.
Brands Farm is believed to date back to the late 1880’s Victorian period, originally forming part of a small country estate surrounded by farmland. The property now offers a wonderful opportunity to sympathetically modernise, extend, or potentially redevelop the existing accommodation within a plot including gardens and paddock of approximately 3/4’s of an acre (to be verified) subject to necessary planning approval. The existing accommodation includes a hall, open plan living dining room, kitchen, utility room, garden room and on the first floor 3 bedrooms and bathroom wc. To the side of the house set back is a detached double garage and the paddock can be accessed from the gardens or from the Lane.
The nearby village of Much Hadham, with its attractive High Street made up of predominantly period properties includes a busy Post Office store, sought after primary school, Public House, together with a doctors surgery and beautiful Parish church. The former market town of Bishops Stortford offering a more extensive range of shopping facilities is within driving distance and includes a mainline railway station with fast commuter access to London’s Liverpool Street (in about 40 mins). The M11 (junction 8) connecting with Cambridge, the North, together with the M25 and London is also accessible. Stanstead airport, is located to the East of Bishops Stortford offering both domestic and international services.
Viewing is strictly by appointment via McRae’s Property Services.
