Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Copelands is an appealing detached four bedroom home constructed around the early 1950’s set back from the road and screened by mature hedgerow within gardens extending to around two thirds of an acre. There is a large gravel driveway providing parking space for numerous vehicles along with boat, caravan etc and there is a sizeable detached double width garage and useful timber work shed.

The spacious accommodation includes a front facing office/study which although fully connected to the property also has its own independent access making it an ideal workroom for those requiring a little ‘peace and quiet’, or for alternative uses, subject to obtaining the relevant planning consent. The A120 is close by and for those requiring access to London both Colchester’s main line railway station and A12 dual carriageway are within a short drive.

The accommodation briefly comprises a welcoming and sizeable reception hall and cloakroom with low level WC, vanity unit with inset wash basin having cupboards under and part tiled walls. There is a front facing dining room with oil fired rayburn and a comfortable lounge with ceramic tiled fireplace an hearth, wood burning stove and double glazed French doors opening onto the superb conservatory/family room with its double set of French doors opening onto the mature garden. There is a spacious kitchen fitted with a comprehensive range of units and a large walk in pantry. A side lobby with access to the coal/wood shed also has a door leading to the utility room which houses the oil fired boiler, has a stable door opening out onto the garden and a further door to the office/study with its range of fitted book shelving and independent door to front.

On the first floor is a split level landing with a shelved airing cupboard which also houses the water softener. The master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes to one wall and lovely views to the front elevation to the countryside and to Ardleigh Reservoir and opens onto the en-suite shower room which has a vanity unit with inset wash basin, useful storage cupboards under, a tiled shower cubicle and low level WC. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom which has a white suite comprising panelled bath with separate shower fitment over, pedestal wash basin and access to loft space with a separate low level WC.

This well presented home has a delightful countryside aspect to the rear elevation where we understand there are around seven acres of paddock land that may be available to rent (for those with an equestrian interest from a local land owner). There is oil fired central heating, an alarm system and double glazed windows.
