A handsome late Victorian family home enjoying a secluded semi-rural location on the edge of the village with excellent communications.
Woodside House is a most impressive Victorian house with later additions offering well proportioned, light accommodation, providing a fine family home. Built of brick, with a slate tiled roof and a feature bay window to the front elevation, the property has partially stone edged windows, a veranda and a glass- covered porch providing access to the main hall. The accommodation is arranged over two floors, together with a cellar and the property retains a wealth of fine period features whilst enjoying modern-day comforts and amenities.
Features of note include attractive fireplaces, high ceilings, elaborate cornicing in the hall and landing areas, heavy panelled doors, deep architraves, sash windows, working window shutters to the morning room, period-style radiators and pine flooring in many of the rooms. The traditional-style kitchen is the heart of the house, being a good size and with a four-oven Aga as a centrepiece and with direct access into the family room.
Woodside House is approached via an electric gated access, with clipped yew hedging and a gravel driveway. A gravel path provides access to the front of the house and the parking area lies to the side, together with a double garage. To the rear is a paved terrace providing a delightful eating area with access to the heated indoor pool, set in wood chalet (currently unused and requiring some repairs).
There is also a separate area of decking with a barbecue where the morning sun and views over the garden can be appreciated. The gardens stretch away from the house to an expanse of lawn split over two levels, interspersed and bounded by an abundance of mature specimen trees and shrubs providing a high level of privacy and seclusion. Trees include mature oaks, beeches, poplars and a fine tulip tree.
A five bar gate provides access to a fenced paddock with a further gate out to Romford Road.

Detached Victorian houses are hard to find, especially outside the town in this price sector, and with space away from neighbours. I think these are the key considerations here; semi-rural, but so convenient.Robert JacobsProperty agent
