Brightlingsea is situated around 10 miles east of Colchester, rail links to the city can be found at Great Bentley or Alresford, both with main line connections.
The "Ofstead Outstanding" Colne community school and college can found towards the top of Brightlingsea whilst lower down, can be found a variety of speciality shops.

This detached property enjoys three reception rooms, including a 21'6" dining room and a 26'0" x 16'0" drawing room with vaulted ceiling and impressive feature inglenook style fireplace with log burner. In addition to the three reception rooms there is also a country style fitted kitchen.

To the first floor there are three bedrooms, plus a shower room and bathroom. There is also potential (subject to planning and building regs) to rearrange the first floor into four bedrooms. Another plus with the property is the option (subject to building permission) to divide a part of the side and rear garden into a separate building plot and still leaving a generous garden with the existing dwelling. There is ample off road parking for multiple vehicles and all in all a comfortable sized plot.

Although the word "potential" is often an overused term in describing property, it does however, fit this property accurately.

On entering the house into the 17'0" long tiled entrance hall, you have a staircase rising to the first floor and door leading into the sitting room. It measures 14'2" x 12'0 (max measurement) and has dual aspect plus a feature open fireplace.
Continuing down the hallway into the dining room, measuring 21'6" x 8'0" (max measurement), again with tiled floor, it has a bespoke feature window to the rear taking in the view of the comfortable rear garden. A walk-in storage cupboard can be found just off the dining room (which could be converted to a downstairs cloakroom, an a door that leads out to the rear dining patio.

An arch leads you into the country style kitchen/breakfast room which has a large range of fitted wall and base cupboards. There is an integrated fridge and freezer, plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher and a fantastic Alpha "Aga style" cooker. The kitchen/breakfast room measures 15'0" x 12'0" and also has a tiled floor.

The last room on the ground floor is the impressive 26'0" x 16'0" Drawing room. Of particular note is the high vaulted timber ceiling with its equally grand mock inglenook fireplace with log burner within. The drawing room has two box bay windows to one side and french doors to the other, leading out to the rear garden.
A fantastic room to entertain or simply to relax in.

Onto the split landing, stairs rising from the entrance hall, you have three bedrooms, a shower room and bathroom. Bedroom one measures 15'0" (max into bay) x 12'0", a spacious double, again with dual aspect windows and also picture rail which is a common feature within the property. Bedroom two, another double measuring 12'0" x 11'7", has picture rail and window to front with bedroom three also at the front of the property. To the rear of the first floor can be found the family bathroom, 8'6" x 7'4", and the shower room. There is potential here to reconfigure (subject to planning and building regs) these two rooms to make another bedroom, should it be required.

To the rear of the property the garden as can be seen by the photographs, is a comfortable size which has a variety of flower and mature shrub borders plus an enclosed secret garden. There is also gardens to both sides, one side which (subject to planning) could make a building plot, still allowing a good size rear garden for the existing house.

Plenty of genuine potential awaits at this character detached house where period features and contemporary style blend seemlessly, situated in an ideal location in the favoured town of Brightlingsea.
