This substantial family residence, located on the outskirts of Chelmsford has a wonderful feel throughout, with flowing accommodation; and is ready for a new owner to unpack and enjoy.The original house was built circa 1930, and has since benefitted from a full restoration by the current owners, inclusive of a two storey wrap-around extension resulting in a large, family orientated home- which feels as though it has always been.
The ground floor accommodation has something for everybody, inclusive of four reception rooms as well as a utility and shower room. The spacious Formal Lounge has charm and character with a feature Inglenook style fireplace, and with ample space for large furniture. This leads into the Garden Room, which as per its title overlooks the fabulous rear garden through bi-folding doors. Natural light floods this room through the roof lantern. It is bathed in sunlight all year round. Opening into the high specification bespoke Kitchen, which features another roof lantern, this room really is the hub of the home. The kitchen is a timeless style with an array of painted oak units and solid oak work surfaces. The focal point of this bright open space is the vast island in the middle of the room- set with a beautiful granite top. The island has two wine coolers, one at each end, as well as drawer storage and space for bar stool seating, making the space both practical and sociable. There are integrated Neff appliances inclusive of two wall mounted ovens with fold away doors, two microwaves, a warming drawer, and an induction hob with extractor above. The Kitchen leads seamlessly through into the Dining Room, which also features bi-folding doors out onto the rear garden. All three of these rooms have underfloor heating which are individually thermostatically controlled. Just off the Kitchen, is the Utility, which is well equipped and has plenty of cupboard space as well as where the American style fridge freezer, dishwasher, tumble dryer and washing machine are located. To the front of the property is a room affectionately known as “The Snug”.

The Primary Bedroom has a four-piece ensuite, a walk-in wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors and boasts breath-taking views over the garden and the Essex countryside from the Juliet balcony.

There is hard standing to the alternate side of the garage also. The further outbuildings include a separate double width Garage, and a brick built Shed named the ‘Pink House’, which has been used as a studio in the past for photography, and has potential to be a craft room or outside office.
