Occupying a delightful hamlet on the rural fringes of Chelmsford City.
The house is listed as being of Architectural or Historical Interest and an extract from the listing states: "A timber framed and plastered house probably of 16th century origin
roof tiled, half hipped at the north end, with three gabled dormers."
The property stands in grounds approaching an acre and at the rear the gardens immediately adjoin farmland providing far-reaching views. A good-sized hallway at the centre of the property provides access to the principal rooms and to the front is a snug with some exposed timbers and also a separate dining room. At the opposite end of the house is a delightful sitting room, 19 x 13.9ft, with some exposed timbers and a fireplace. Double doors open into a study with further double doors opening onto the terrace and a window overlooking the grounds and farmland beyond. At the rear of the house lies a highly appointed kitchen/breakfast room with a contrasting oak-style Karndean floor. The kitchen is fitted with a range of gloss-fronted units with contrasting granite work surfaces, integrated hob, extractor hood, double oven and fridge/freezer. Double doors at the end frame lovely views of the gardens and farmland beyond. There is also a ground floor cloakroom.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom has a well appointed bathroom. Bedroom 2 also has an en suite shower room with a further shower room servicing the three further bedrooms.
A long drive passes the front gardens to a parking area beside the house with access to the cart lodge and store and beyond is a double width detached garage. The gardens are predominantly lawned and include a greenhouse and immediately behind the house are two paved areas which are ideal for al fresco dining.
