    About this property

    • A modern detached country cottage occupying a glorious stretch of countryside within rural Essex. Langley House was constructed in the 1990s and is of traditional brick construction to the lower floor and timber frame to the upper floor, in keeping with its surroundings, offering three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a study and a spacious conservatory. Externally, there is a detached double garage and an outdoor, heating swimming pool, set within a plot of about 0.22 of an acre.

      The property provides a conventional design and is entered from the front into a welcoming entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and a cloakroom. The study/bedroom four and kitchen are positioned to the front of the house with views over the front garden. The kitchen provides a collection of storage units with space for appliances and informal dining. The dining room and sitting room are comfortable reception spaces, ideal for family living. The sitting room enjoys direct access to the garden along with a feature fireplace with attractive stone surround. The dining room leads to a large conservatory with mainly glazed elevations overlooking and opening to the garden. To the first floor, an attractive landing serves three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom is positioned to the rear of the house and enjoys en suite shower facilities.

      The property is set back from its country lane setting and accessed over a side shingle driveway with picket fence and a front area of lawn. The drive continues to the side of the house providing extensive parking, leading to a detached double garage of pitched roof design. The garden is a generous size and extends from the rear of house providing a wonderful extension to this charming home. There is a paved terrace area opening to an expanse of lawn. Beyond is the outdoor, heating swimming pool with two adjacent sheds which houses the services for the pool which include a dual fuel system comprising electric air-source heat pump and oil-fired boiler.
