ALDBORO HOUSE is a fine example of a spacious and characterful Grade II Listed period house. Located on Park Street, just a short walk from the popular facilities that Thaxted has to offer, the property benefits from a driveway leading to a detached double garage to the rear of the large and well stocked gardens. Aldboro House was originally a smaller timber framed property which evolved over time to have an elegant Georgian façade with a small, more modern extension to the side linking it to the neighbouring property at ground floor level.
Accommodation comprises a large entrance hallway with cloakroom, cloaks cupboard, door to the rear terrace and trap door access to a large cellar. The impressive sitting room (28' 7" long) has a wide bay window to the front elevation and sash window overlooking the rear garden. The centrepiece is an ornate fireplace with marble slips and hearth and carved mantel housing an electric wood burning style stove (suitable for conversion to logs). An inner hallway with two store
cupboards leads to the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a good range of wall and base units with appliances to include a Miele dishwasher, Neff electric oven with 5-ring gas hob and extractor fan over, Miele microwave, coffee maker and warming drawer. An adjacent large utility room leads to the rear garden and has a range of fitted cupboards with butler sink, water softener, space for a large fridge and freezer and houses the gas fired central heating boiler. A formal dining room features an open fireplace with fitted cupboards and drawers in the recesses and a large bay window. At the end of the inner hall is a study/snug with two high level windows.
The first floor comprises a spacious landing leading to the four double bedrooms; the master with en suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe. The family bathroom has been modernised in recent years with a wash basin inset to a vanity unit, heated towel rail and shower over the bath. A door
and stairs from a rear bedroom lead to a loft room/bedroom five with wash hand basin and exposed timbers and a door leads to a large loft storage area.
OUTSIDE, a wide driveway leads to the bottom of the garden with double garage (18' x 18') and gravelled parking and turning area with adjacent shed. This area is screened by large conifer bushes. The garden is principally lawned surrounded by mature trees and shrub borders and is partially walled with steps leading up to a raised terrace with outside lighting and a pedestrian side gate.
