  • Bedrooms: 3
Wonderfully located home on one level with useful outbuildings, set in 1.4 acres of beautifully maintained grounds, sheltered by a woodland backdrop and affording stunning far reaching views along the Colne Valley towards the landmark Chappel Viaduct

Offering potential to reconfigure, the property is tucked away towards the end of this peaceful country lane yet is just a 15 minute drive to Marks Tey mainline station and equally close to the small market towns of Coggleshall and Earls Colne

The property

The porch and boot room provides a spacious tiled entrance to the property and can be accessed from the front drive and also via a path leading from the parking area near the garage.

The good sized kitchen has a range of wall and base units with extensive work surfaces. Appliances include: AEG double oven, AEG hob and under counter fridge. There is space for a dishwasher and washing machine. This room also houses the oil fired boiler. There are wonderful views out across the garden and ornamental fishpond to the verdant hills beyond.

The kitchen leads into the well located dining area with a south west facing window overlooking the lawns. It features an attractive fireplace with tiled surround with the chimney breast creating a natural division in the room. There is also a gas flame fireplace in the adjoining sitting room. This light and airy room has a dual aspect with views out across the gardens. It would work equally well as study area. Bedroom three is a light and airy small double with a dual aspect and is currently used as a study.

Bedroom two is approached via a small hallway leading from the dining room. It is a generous double bedroom with a wall of fitted cupboards and delightful views to the west out across the lush gardens. It also benefits from an ensuite cloakroom. The recently refitted and generous bathroom is well appointed and fully tiled in a neutral scheme. It comprises: a large walk-in shower, Heritage console basin and bath.

The drawing room is of generous proportions, has superb views across the gardens and is flooded by light from the dual aspect including French doors out to the terrace. It features a classical marble mantelpiece and hearth inset with a Burley environ flueless gas fire. The equally generous master bedroom was formerly split into two rooms and has the potential to be reinstated as two rooms of 14' x 9' each, and enjoys stunning views towards the viaduct with bespoke fitted storage units and wardrobes. There is also a boarded loft with lighting and ladder.

Outside

Approached via a quiet country lane and accessed through attractive electric wrought iron gates, the property is set in stunning grounds which are further screened from the lane by well tended hedging. The gently sloping plot with exceptional panoramic views is completely fenced with boundaries of bamboo and hedging and is sheltered by a mature woodland.

A broad driveway, neatly finished with paviours, leads to a substantial cluster of outbuildings. The workshop (ceiling height 8' 7") with solid floor and two windows is entered from the large garage. The garage, at over forty feet long and with a ceiling height of 10'9", has the possibility of creating a mezzanine level to the rear if required and can currently accommodate up to 4 cars. There is power and light connected.

The gardens feature mature shrub borders, a raised brick edged ornamental fishpond and a west facing terrace to the rear of the property enjoying delightful views over the grounds.
