Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This deceptively spacious five bedroom detached residence is beautifully presented and designed to offer everything the modern family would desire. The present owners have tastefully extended the property and the living accommodation is now approximately 2660sq feet.

The property is approached via a block paved in and out driveway which also allows ample parking. Access to the impressive reception hall is through a solid indigbo door; here a log burner, solid oak flooring and doors make for an attractive and inviting welcome. French doors open into a large sitting room where views across the garden can be observed and accessed. The modern fitted kitchen comprises of cream units, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar. It opens into a dining room which at present is furnished with an eighteen seater table and has a front aspect. A study, separate utility, shower room, cloakroom and coat cupboard are also located on this floor.
The first floor has five double bedrooms. The master suite was created from an extension and has use of a very well appointed shower room with his and hers basins and a double size walk in shower. A Juliette balcony gives a panoramic view across the well maintained garden. The guest room also has an en-suite wetroom and the three remaining bedrooms share the use of a family bathroom. Most of the bathrooms, apart from the family bathroom, have been provided with underfloor heating.

The overall plot is in excess of a quarter of an acre which allows this well-proportioned home to be set back from the road. Gates give access to the rear garden where a patio area overlooks an established lawn. There is also a useful workshop/office and a wooden shed.

The property is found on Clacton Road in Elmstead and benefits from convenient access to the A120 to Colchester and beyond only two miles from the house. Elmstead is big enough for basic amenities, but small enough to maintain its village feel. The property is walking distance to the local primary school which has a very good reputation. Colchester lies some four miles to the west with its restaurants, shopping and leisure facilities and the main campus for the University of Essex is only a short car journey.
