The three-bedroom house is believed to originate from the 17th century and retains enviable period features. In addition, it boasts a lovely south-facing, landscaped garden, a detached double garage and a workshop.

Upstairs, there are the three bedrooms, as well as a bathroom and a shower room. Downstairs delights include a sitting room, garden room, study, dining room and kitchen.

Bruce King, director at Cheffins, told the Cambridge Independent: “One of the most sought-after villages close to Saffron Walden is Arkesden, which is full of chocolate-box cottages all set around a small central green.

“It has a good pub and is only two miles from Audley End train station, while being surrounded by pretty countryside. As a result, any house that comes up for sale in Arkesden tends to sell very quickly.

“Arkesden is also only a mile south of Clavering, which is home to The Cricketers, the famous pub owned by Jamie Oliver’s parents, as well as a large shop and a tennis club.”

Bruce concluded: “Bailey’s Cottage is a very special property which has been beautifully cared for by its current owner.

“We expect it will be of interest to those looking for a lovely family home or to commuters looking for a country property while still being within easy reach of London.”
