    About this property

    • Built in 2010, Ferradura provides luxurious accommodation extending over 5,000 sq ft, thoughtfully designed over two levels with a substantial unconverted loft, offering further potential, subject to planning. The property is pleasantly situated in the countryside, set back from the road, within close proximity of Witham, Maldon, Colchester and Chelmsford.

      Ferradura provides an attractive symmetrical design of brick construction, with a mellowed rendered facade. This stylish home enjoys vast amounts of natural light with large glazed elevations to the principal rooms, elegantly presented in neutral tones. From the west-facing garden, this imposing, individual home backs on to paddock land and has been oriented to make the most of the semi-rural views. The property is set back from the road with a gated driveway providing parking and a triple garage with a useful studio room above.

      Ferradura is entered from the front via a large entrance lobby, opening to a welcoming reception hall with a stunning bespoke staircase rising to the first floor. The ground floor, which has underfloor heating throughout, boasts a guest cloakroom and a beautifully presented study with an array of bespoke wooden storage units. The formal dining room features double-aspect bay windows, providing an excellent space for entertaining. Adjacent to the dining room is another reception room, also double aspect, currently used as a relaxation/games room by the present owners.

      The kitchen, boasting a bespoke German design and fitted by Nicholas Anthony, has Miele appliances including a hot/cold/sparkling water tap, and is open plan, situated between two substantial formal living areas. Both living spaces open seamlessly on to Indian sandstone patios through full-height bifold doors, providing a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living. Two distinctive fireplaces with wood burners add warmth and character to the space.

      Concluding the ground floor accommodation is a boot room and a laundry/plant room, both offering storage, sink/worktop facilities and outside access.

      To the first floor, an elegant landing with curved walls separates the principal bedroom suite from a spectacular family bathroom and four additional double bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities.

      The principal suite occupies the entire south side of the property and features a spacious dressing room and a magnificent en suite bathroom complete with a Juliette balcony with stunning westerly views.

      The loft area presents an opportunity for expansion, with the potential to increase the property's square footage and create additional living space. It has been thoughtfully designed and partially boarded, offering flexibility for future owners to extend the property (subject to building regulations).

      The property is accessed through automated double gates featuring video entry, leading to a sweeping gravel driveway that offers ample parking for multiple vehicles. In addition to the main house, there is a detached pitched roof triple garage. Interestingly, the roof space has been creatively converted by the current owners to serve as a studio with a toilet and sink. This versatile space is currently used as extra living accommodation for visiting friends and family but could also function as a separate office completely detached from the main dwelling. To the rear of the garage, there are two other conveniently placed outbuildings.

      The majority of the garden area consists of well maintained lawns, complemented by mature borders and sturdy close-boarded fencing, enhancing the overall charm of this exceptional property.

      All in about 0.81 of an acre.

      Mains water and electricity. Air-source heat pump. Private drainage system - Klargester.
