Discreet and stylish modern bungalow with stable block and outbuildings
This beautifully presented bungalow offers a modern and stylish theme throughout and has been extensively modernised and improved by the current owners. The house is nestled behind a row of houses within striking distance of Sawbridgeworth town centre.
The discreet gated driveway opens to reveal a large bonded resin driveway providing turning and ample parking. This drive continues to the rear part of the plot where you will find the equestrian/ storage facilities.
A grand entrance hallway sits in the middle of the house with a utility and cloakroom just off of this to your right is the bedroom wing and to the left is a large open-plan living and dining area which provides the hub for family living. This large and bright space has bi-folding doors on to the terrace to the rear. A small lobby leads to a guest cloakroom and stairs to the first floor bedroom and bathroom which has a roof terrace with some lovely countryside views.
The kitchen is open-plan with the living area and is fitted with a range of modern wall and base units and integrated Neff appliances.
On the other side of the house are the main bedrooms, essentially set up as four suites. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, wet room and dressing room. The three remaining bedrooms all have en suite facilities and fitted wardrobes.
On the outside, a substantial sun terrace wraps around the back of the house with an outdoor party room with space for a pool table and seating area. Courtesy lighting wraps around the outside of the property and the flowerbeds in the garden.
The grounds themselves extend to around 2.76 acres and are mainly laid to lawn although we understand these have been divided into paddocks in the past. To the rear corner of the plot sits a large L shaped stable block with four stables, tack room and storage facilities. One of these areas has been insulated and lined to provide a useful, dry storage space. We understand that this building could offer an opportunity to convert to additional residential living space - subject to planning permission. Adjacent to these are further workshops and storage sheds including an open hay store. A side gate opens on to a footpath with direct access to the open countryside.
We understand that the house is connected to mains water, drainage and electricity. There are two oil-fired central heating boilers serving the main house.

I love the discreet location of this house - it offers true rural-style living, yet is literally just a few minutes' walk from the mainline station and shops in Sawbridgeworth town centre. This house could be ideal for someone with either a horse or a car habit!Justin Godfrey
