About this property

  • Stuarts is set back from the road, well-screened by mature trees and shrubs and surrounded by established gardens adjoining Oaklands Park, a 12-acre public park with a museum, tennis courts and sports pitches. Located in one of Chelmsford's conservation areas, it is well-placed for access to the city centre, parks, A12, schools and rail station. The house itself is believed to date back to the 1920s and has half-rendered and red-brick elevations under a tiled roof, impressive splay bays in the dining room and first floor bedroom and well-proportioned rooms enhanced by high ceilings. The property has retained a wealth of period features including an attractive dog-leg staircase, the original casement windows, numerous fireplaces, doors, cornice, picture rails and skirting boards. Of particular note is to mention the large kitchen/breakfast room at the rear of the house, overlooking the gardens.

    A vestibule shelters the entrance door, opening into a fine hall, finished with parquet flooring. The hall contains an attractive dog-leg style staircase providing a focal point. Adjacent is a ‘hotel style' wet room with traditional tiling. At the front of the house is a sitting/dining room with a bay window and a feature fireplace. At the rear of the house is a living room with a bay window, fireplace and door into the garden. Also at the rear is a kitchen/breakfast room finished with a traditional ‘pammet' style tiled floor, complementing the on-trend period colour kitchen units which have contrasting marble style work tops. The fittings include a falcon five burner Range cooker. The breakfast area, lit by a glazed lantern overlooks the garden and has a door on to the terrace. At the opposite end of the kitchen is a pantry and boiler room.

    On the first floor are four bedrooms (three en suite), the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a traditional styled slipper bath. On the second floor is a fifth bedroom, fitted with bespoke storage and has an en suite shower room.

    The driveway adjacent to the house, which also serves Oaklands Park and a property behind, leads on to a set of double gates at the end of the back garden to a parking area. This garden is screened on both sides by a bank of mature trees, with lawns and a large terrace behind the house, ideal for alfresco dining. The front garden is about 18m (60') deep, approached through a set of double timber gates to a gravelled central area, with lawns. On either side of the front garden are lattice screened area for bin storage.

    All main services connected.

I love the location, next to the 12 acre Oaklands park and within a mile of the city center.
