About this property

  • An imposing family home built in 2016, influenced by Tudor design, occupying a private gated development in the peaceful hamlet of Edney Common, to the west of Chelmsford. Despite its age, the property, known as 'Oakwood House', offers a traditional appearance often associated with 15th century architecture with an exposed oak frame design and tall roof line. The accommodation has been thoughtfully configured for family living with the perfect balance of reception rooms and bedrooms, offering light-filled and adaptable spaces. The house has five bedrooms and offers approximately 3,500 sq ft of accommodation, in addition to a detached double garage with studio room above and WC facilities. The east-facing garden is a wonderful addition to the house providing areas of lawn and protected woodland, totalling about 0.78 of an acre

    The accommodation comprises a vaulted reception hall providing a welcoming approach to the house. The hall enjoys a feature woodburning stove and an oak staircase with a contemporary glass balustrade rising to the first floor. There is a dining room, a study and a drawing room with a central family area providing a sociable bright space overlooking, and with access to, the garden. Beyond is a bespoke kitchen of open-plan design, fitted with a range of modern units and integrated appliances. To the first floor there is a stunning landing providing a real sense of space and light, leading to a superb principal suite with Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens and woodland. The suite offers a dressing area with fitted cupboards along with a four-piece en suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms with en suites and a large airing cupboard with hot water tank. A bespoke staircase leads to the second floor with two double bedrooms, both benefitting from en suite bathrooms.

    The property is approached over a block-paved driveway, continuing to the side of the house, opening to a detached double garage with WC facilities and a very useful studio room above, making for an ideal home office space or annexe potential, subject to the necessary consents. Gated access leads to the rear garden which commences a substantial terrace, providing a wonderful extension to the house, with steps leading to an area of lawn. The garden has been thoughtfully designed and planted with a selection of specimen trees and shrubs along with a 'nature trail' through protected woodland. All in about 0.78 of an acre.
