When turning into Marlowe Way, you are greeted with large mature trees lining the road entrance with properties set back from the road. You immediately have a feel of calm and grandeur! Although this property is in the sought after Lexden area, the view at the rear really is quite unique which is very difficult to find nowadays, providing the best of both worlds.

The property itself consists of a large 25ft lounge diner with wonderful views out over the rear garden. A well equipped integrated kitchen, a separate morning room, ground floor cloakroom, a handy entrance porch and of course the entrance hall. The first floor boasts four double bedrooms, the master with en-suite and a refitted family four piece bathroom.
Outside the property has a beautiful feel, predominately because of "country style" of the rear garden with great views over mature trees and a glimpse of Lexden Park in the distance. The front garden also has off road parking and access to the garage, which has been partly converted into internal accommodation, whilst still having remaining storage.

On entering the property, you pass through the entrance porch which has tiled floor and double glazed windows to front and side and measures a good 6'8" X 6'6", a great space for a growing families shoes and coats, or after a long walk with the dogs over the Lexden park, which is on your doorstep. Then into the entrance hall, with doors to all rooms and a staircase to the first floor. The spacious lounge diner is a bright room with plenty of space, benefiting from an open fireplace which at present has a lovely gas fire inset, big windows to front, rear and side allowing lots of light in plus a patio door to the rear which takes you out onto the patio and decked dining areas where you can experience the stunning views to the rear.

The kitchen also has separate plumbing for a American style fridge freezer, tiled flooring, A double glazed door to the side and a double glazed window to the rear overlooking the garden. Of course a kitchen of this size has plenty of storage and more than ample work surface.

The garage as mentioned before has been converted creating two new rooms, a cloakroom and a morning room. The morning room is a lovely bright room with built in storage cupboards, T.V. cabinet and book case. A quiet room away from the hustle of the main house, its a great place to relax and read a book or catch up on your favourite T.V. programmes. There is also a separate double glazed side door providing private access if required plus a double glazed window to side.

Before you enter the cloakroom you pass through a lobby area which has additional storage, another benefit of the conversion. The cloakroom itself is a modern two piece suite with double glazed window to side and white wood panelling to half the walls with built in shelving and storage to complete the look.

Onto the first floor landing their are doors to all bedrooms and bathroom, plus loft access. The master bedroom is a good size measuring 12'8" x 11'3", with double glazed windows to the front and side, two door built in wardrobe and an ensuite comprising a wash hand basin inset into vanity unit, low level W.C and a double width shower, thermostatically controlled by AquaLisa, making sure your temperature is right for you, before getting in to the shower cubicle.
