    About this property

    • A handsome 1920s family home occupying a popular turning close to the centre of Chelmsford set on a generous plot of about 0.14 of an acre. The property provides well-proportioned rooms which have a comfortable feel, with high ceilings, contemporary décor and some beautiful original period features.

      Situated around one mile from Chelmsford city and centre and within easy reach of Admirals Park, the property offers approximately 2,150 sq ft of accommodation and is being sold with no onward chain.

      The property is entered from the front into an entrance porch opening to a welcoming entrance hall with turning staircase rising to the first floor. The property has a practical layout with three reception rooms and a home office. A kitchen/family room extends from the back of the house with access and views over the garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of light-coloured units and integrated appliances. A utility room which connects a shower room concludes the ground floor accommodation.

      The first floor is equally as charming providing five bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate cloakroom.

    Apart from this wonderful period of design and sense of space in this property, perhaps my favourite element is how close it is to Admirals Park and the city centre.
