About this property

  • An impressive family home of generous proportion occupying a convenient setting, 2 miles north of Colchester town centre and being sold with no chain.

    Built in 2002, the property provides light-filled accommodation totalling approximately 3,860 sq ft, offering four first floor bedrooms and three receptions rooms. The principal rooms have been orientated to take advantage of the property's stunning south-facing garden amplified by large amounts of glazing providing a wealth of natural light. The property is set back within its plot providing a spacious drive and a double garage. The garden has been beautifully designed and maintained, all in around about 0.61 of an acre.

    The property is approached from the front into a welcoming reception hall with a turning staircase rising to the first floor. From the hall is the cloakroom and a comfortably proportioned home office positioned to the front of the house. The kitchen is located to the far side and is a sociable room offering an informal dining area and a range of wooden base level units with light-coloured work surfaces. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of integrated appliances with further appliances, storage facilities and work space found in the utility room, linking the garage. The principal reception rooms can be found to the rear and side of the house and although two distinct spaces, offer a wonderful social space, ideal for family living and entertaining. A particular feature is the extensive range of sliding doors which open directly on to the garden providing a wonderful extension to this beautiful family home. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom which is also accessed from bedroom three. Two further bedrooms provide en suite facilities with three of the rooms enjoying fitted wardrobes. There is access to the loft from the landing offering further scope.

    Outside
    The landscaped rear garden commences with an extensive rear and side terrace which adjoins shaped lawns with deep, heavily-stocked beds providing all-year colour and interest. The lawns have a scattering of specimen trees and to the side of the garden there is a circular timber-frame summer house. All in about 0.61 of an acre.

Apart from the extraordinary design and sense of space in this property, perhaps my favourite element is the landscaped south facing garden.
