Situated in a quiet tree lined lane on a half acre plot backing onto field and woodland, this highly desirable Grade II Listed 4 bedroom detached character property has been a much loved part of the same family for almost 60 years. Originally built in 1710 as three small cottages, it was sympathetically reconfigured in the 1960s to provide spacious living accommodation while still retaining many period features such as exposed beams and open fireplaces and offering good head height throughout. The large entrance hallway with cloakroom leads to the first reception currently used as a dining room, further main reception has triple aspect over the gardens, french window rear access and a wonderful pale brick fireplace. The kitchen country-style benefits from a walk-in larder and leads through to a lobby/boot room and generous separate utility room, each with their own rear access. The third reception/bedroom sits to the other wing of the house with another open fireplace and adjoins a good sized smaller room overlooking the garden that would make an ideal en-suite or dressing room. Upstairs there is a family bathroom along with three double bedrooms and a further bedroom, all with ample storage. The master bedroom has the additional features of exposed original studwork and dual aspect over the garden.Outside an established and well-maintained beautiful English garden surrounds the property, with extensive lawns, mature shrubs and specimen trees. A double garage provides off-road parking and there is also a coal bunker to the rear of the property. Dooley House is located on the periphery of the sought-after village of Wickham Bishops with local shops, Olio restaurant, pub and tennis club with excellent road links (A12/M25) and main line rail services from nearby Witham (London Liverpool Street approx. 45 minutes). EPC exempt.
