Cockerells Farm is a handsome country house of timber framing and red brick elevations under a tiled roof with a classic three-bay symmetrical façade. In part, the house dates from the 18th Century, with 19th Century additions to include the bakehouse that was converted and added to the house in the last 20 years, and is arranged over three floors. The house is now listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance.
The earlier part radiates on a formal basis from a central reception hall, whilst the latter is the conversion of the bakehouse now offering a spacious dining room. The rooms deliver a broad variety of atmosphere and use, yet also offer a good degree of flexibility. The principal reception rooms are elegantly proportioned retaining many features of the period including exposed beams, fireplaces and surprisingly high ceilings flooded with light from the sash windows.
On the first floor is a magnificent master bedroom suite incorporating an impressive en-suite bathroom; together with two further bedrooms, an en-suite and a family bathroom. On the second floor are three double bedrooms with a second family bathroom. The setting and orientation of the house allows lovely views over the mature grounds and surroundings beyond, together with rooftop views from the upper floors.
In addition to the main house is the ‘Hay Loft’, set above the garage overlooking the gardens, which has been completely refurbished to offer an idyllic guest accommodation. Further outbuildings include two double garages, a large workshop, and two spacious stables.
The property is positioned discreetly down a country lane, nestled in its surrounding countryside, between the ever popular and picturesque villages of both Feering and Coggeshall. Approached by a red brick wall leading along a sweeping gravel driveway providing ample parking and giving access to the outbuildings. The front lawns have a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees that act as the border, screening the property and offering a great deal of privacy. Beyond the outbuildings and through a set of white gates is a secluded courtyard; an ideal spot for outdoor entertaining being west facing. From here, you can enjoy views across the formal lawns that are also west facing and bordered by an array of beautiful trees and bushes. To the rear of the house is a second walled garden, well secured and the perfect spot for children to play. In addition to the gardens, there is a paddock with post and rail fencing that adjoins both the formal lawns.
