TENURE: To be advised
This truly deceptive bungalow located within the village of Thorrington is a must see. This property benefits from a generous open plan living area compromising of a modern fitted kitchen with wooden worktop, dining area and then opening into the lounge with a fully working log burner which is to remain.
Two double bedrooms with an en suite to bedroom two and fitted wardrobes to bedroom one, Bedroom three was used as a bedroom and had a single bed - bedside table and wardrobe and was used for one of the children but could also be used as a study or reading room.
Thorrington is a village and civil parish in the Tendring district of Essex, England. It lies 3 miles (5 km) east of Wivenhoe and 1.9 miles (3 km) north of Brightlingsea. The striking medieval flint church is dedicated to Mary Magdalene, and the patrons of the church are St John's College, Cambridge.
On the west side, the Tenpenny Brook forms the parish boundary between Thorrington and Alresford. At the point where the brook flows into the Alresford Creek (a branch of the Colne Estuary) stands Thorrington Mill. This is a tide mill built in 1831 and now a Grade II listed building. The east and northern boundaries of the parish are bounded by the Saltwater Brook. Where the Saltwater Brook flows into Flag Creek (formerly Borefleet Creek or Byrflytt) is the former site of another Tidal Mill.
The Colchester to Clacton railway line passes just to the north of the village. Thorrington's station was opened in 1867, and closed in 1957. Great Bentley station is now the closest rail station, located around 2 miles north-east of the village.
