Built and completed to the highest of standards, Anvil Cottage offers all the benefits of modern contemporary living whilst enjoying a wonderful elevated setting in a small, picturesque hamlet of just five other properties.

Attractively finished with weatherboard elevations under a slate tiled roof, the bungalow’s traditional design compliments the immediate surroundings.

Offering a pleasing layout, one is instantly drawn on entry to the rear where the open-plan kitchen / dining / sitting room takes full advantage of the stunning rural backdrop via two sets of bi-fold doors.

Stylishly fitted, the kitchen offers solid quartz worksurfaces, integral appliances including ‘Neff’ single oven and grill, induction hob, combi microwave and numerous built in full-height cupboards, base and eye level units and drawers.

Adding to the stylish furnishings is a wood burner on a porcelain hearth.

All two / three bedrooms are set to the front which overlook the driveway and beyond the minor country lane.

Bedroom one provides an ensuite shower room which similarly to the main bathroom is finished to a stylish contemporary edge.

The remaining accommodation is the utility / boot room which offers further worksurfaces, storage space and plumbing for further appliances. 

Defined by walls of red brick, the front part provides ample off -road parking with an adjacent garden.

Access to both sides leads through to the main garden where a raised terrace of Indian sandstone leads on to an area of lawn defined by timber fencing and an established field hedge which abuts open farmland.

Due to the elevated setting, the property provides uninterrupted and far-reaching views over rolling countryside towards the hamlet of Horner’s Green and Kersey Upland. 


Groton is a rural community with The Fox pub and church, all set around magnificent undulating countryside.

The market towns of Hadleigh and Sudbury are close by and Colchester, with its commuter rail service to London, Liverpool Street, is some 11 miles distant.

The large village of Boxford is approximately one mile to the south, which offers a wide range of amenities.


Mains water and electricity are connected. Heat recovery ventilation system and underfloor heating. Private drainage.
