Tenure: Freehold

Ideally located to the west of Colchester in the ever popular Lexden area is this imposing six double bedroom detached family home. Originally built in the 1960s as a four bedroom, the property has been extensively extended over the years and now provides over three thousand square feet of versatile accommodation.
An open porch provides shelter for the main entrance which opens into a hallway with a black and white tiled floor. The stairs to the first floor are accessed from here and doors lead into a recently refitted cloakroom, sitting room and lounge, which in turn opens via French doors into a large garden room that overlooks the rear garden.
The bespoke kitchen was designed and fitted by ‘Wentworth’ only three years ago and comprises solid granite and oak work surfaces, a range of cupboards and drawers with soft closing doors and ‘Siemens’ appliances, which include a five ring induction hob with extractor, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. An Italian marble tiled floor runs throughout this functional dining space and dual aspect windows flood the area with natural light.
The first floor provides six double bedrooms of which the Master benefits from a fully fitted dressing room with sensor lighting and an en-suite shower room. Another bedroom also has the advantage of an en-suite and a recently fitted family bathroom is also available on this floor.
This well presented residence is approached via a driveway that affords off street parking for a minimum of three cars and leads to a double garage. The rear garden can be accessed through a side gate and as it is west facing receives sunlight most of the day.
