Location

Topeka is situated in the pretty village of Willingale between Chelmsford and Chipping Ongar within a lovely area of open countryside surrounding the village. Chelmsford, some 10 minutes' drive away, provides a cosmopolitan town centre with shops, restaurants and bars, with an excellent range of recreational facilities. There are mainline railway stations to London's Liverpool Street at Chelmsford, Brentwood and Shenfield with underground services at Epping and Debden. The property is readily accessible to major road links including the A414 linking Chelmsford with the M11 at junction 7 and the A1060 connecting Chelmsford and the A12. Willingale village has a village hall and sports field. Schooling can be found at Chipping Ongar with the recently opened academy senior school and the property lies within the catchment radius of Chelmsford's King Edward VI Grammar School and Chelmsford County High School for Girls. To the south lies Brentwood with the renowned Brentwood School for boys and girls.

Description

Topeka occupies a west-facing plot of 0.7 of an acre and enjoys far-reaching views over the Roding Valley. The house has been designed so that the principal reception rooms and bedrooms overlook the gardens and open countryside. The accommodation includes five bedrooms, the master bedroom having three sets of large windows, a good range of fitted wardrobes and a spacious en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, two of which share a "Jack and Jill" en suite, and in addition there is a good sized family bath/shower room. A unique feature of the property is a sheltered first floor balcony roof terrace overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond. From the first-floor landing steps rise to a largely boarded attic area.

The house is approached through a central hallway and at the rear of the house, overlooking the gardens, lies the kitchen/breakfast room, a light and airy family room with full height glazed sliding doors opening onto the swimming pool garden terrace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a good sized home office whilst at the front of the house is a spacious living room with fireplace incorporating a living flame gas fire with a link into a separate dining room.

Outside, the house is set back from a country lane approached over a broad gravel drive providing extensive off road parking. This in turn leads to an integral double garage. To the left of the house double gates open into a wide courtyard providing a secure parking area and potential for an extension to the house subject to obtaining planning consent. On the opposite side of the house is a useful brick-built storage area which incorporates an oil storage tank. The rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect with a substantial terrace that includes an in-ground swimming pool. Lying next to this area is a shower block including wc and further outbuildings providing workshop with power and light and a garden store. In addition a further building links the pool boiler and filtration plant. Beyond the pool the gardens are predominantly lawned, gently sloping to the rear boundary and adjoining open countryside. The boundaries either side of the lawn are mature evergreen and deciduous trees providing a great deal of privacy. The gardens measure over 300 ft in depth from the back of the house.
