A 1920s 4 bedroom detached period home just over a mile walking distance from Chelmsford station.
Built by the owner of Beachs Brickworks in 1927, Tintagel is a fine period property retaining feature bricks from the former works which were located at the end of Beachs Drive, a short walk away. Other period features to note are the oak doors, oak architrave, skirting, picture and plate rails. The current owners have sympathetically improved the property to offer spacious flexible accommodation for today's family needs.
The property is well screened by mature trees at the front with access via a five-bar gate leading you to a shingle driveway providing parking for several cars and access to an attached double garage. The Tudor revival exterior is beautifully enhanced by decorative brickwork and a covered porch entrance sits central in the façade.
The typical 1920s front door with stained glass and original ironmongery opens to the central hallway. From the hall doors lead on to all the living accommodation and a dogleg staircase takes you up to the first floor landing. The triple aspect dining room extends the full depth of the house; its features include an original open fireplace, a square bay to the side and a vaulted seating area with bi-fold doors (a later addition) leads on to the south-facing, unoverlooked rear garden. The sitting room has a large bay window overlooking the rear garden, as well as side door access on to the patio and an attractive stone and cast iron fireplace with granite hearth and a gas fire.
The kitchen is a bright social space extended to create a breakfast area with a vaulted ceiling and French doors providing access to the patio at the rear. The kitchen is fitted with white Shaker-style units and black granite worktops and breakfast bar. All the appliances are integrated and include a double oven, larder fridge, dishwasher and five-ring hob with extractor hood. In addition to the wide range of kitchen units there is a convenient original pantry with cold slab with space for an under-counter fridge. The study is accessed from the breakfast area, it too has a vaulted ceiling and is a good size room creating an excellent home office space. There is also access into the double attached garage (which doubles as a utility room), has eves storage and an electric up-and-over door with side pedestrian access.
The first floor accommodation includes a master bedroom with Juliette balcony overlooking the rear garden, fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room with white suite, vanity storage unit and heated towel rail. Bedroom two has a front and back double aspect, fitted cupboards, wash basin and original fireplace. Bedroom three also has an original fireplace and in addition original fitted wardrobes and corner cupboard. Bedroom four is a good size and has a built-in wardrobe and views to the front of the property. The family bathroom is part-tiled, with a white suite, basin with black granite top vanity unit, heated towel rail and a separate fully tiled shower cubicle with Victorian-style fitments. A separate WC is on the opposite side of the landing.
Tintagel benefits from a south-facing, well screened rear garden with extensive patio and decking spaces providing ideal early morning or late evening dining areas and a covered entertaining area with power and lighting. Steps lead down from the patio to an easily maintained lawn area with established shrub borders. There is gated access at both sides of the property which leads to a log store.
