    About this property

    • Mandalay is a delightful family home enjoying well-presented and flexible accommodation, located within the charming semi-rural village of Woodham Mortimer, about 2.3 miles east of Danbury, 4.5 miles from the A12 and 3 miles south-west of the historic town of Maldon.

      The property has been very well maintained and enhanced, enjoying spacious, light-filled accommodation, ideal for large family living with growing teenagers.

      The accommodation extends to about 3,000 sq ft and comprises five first floor bedrooms, two providing en suite facilities, with the primary bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe. There is a family bathroom with all of the west-facing bedrooms enjoying views over the stunning garden. There are three reception rooms to the ground floor including a spacious kitchen/breakfast room leading to a utility room and further reception area. The layout provides comfortable levels of accommodation for family living but could also be re-organised for multi-generational living.

      The property is approached from the front into a welcoming entrance hall leading to the office and a rear reception space with sliding doors opening to the garden. Originally a single room, this part of the house also provides a utility room and service room with internal access to the garage offering the opportunity to be converted into self-contained living quarters. A spacious inner hall has stairs leading to the first floor and access to the cloakroom, dining room and 'L' shaped living room. The living room is a delightful dual-aspect room with sliding doors opening to the terrace. Central to the room is the feature brick fire place with solid oak mantle over, and inset dual coal/log burner. To the rear of the house is a wonderful country-style kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a collection of oak units, work surfaces and a breakfast bar. The room enjoys a part-vaulted ceiling and incorporates a range of integrated appliances.

      Equally as charming is the rear garden offering a delightful extension to the house, enjoying a wonderful selection of herbaceous plants and a variety specimen trees. The garden is west facing, full of interest and colour, commencing a terrace which extends from the rear of the house making an ideal area for entertaining and relaxation. The terrace opens to lawn incorporating stocked borders and a Koi pond with a bridge. A neatly cut pathway meanders through the garden to the very back where a timber-framed summer house is located, providing power and light. There are two greenhouses, and a further private area of garden currently used as a children's fairy garden, and previously used for bee hives. To the front of the property is a wide shingle driveway accommodating parking for several vehicles leading to an adjoining garage.

      Mains water, electricity and drainage.
