THE STORY

Cleverly mixing the old with the new, the house on Creffield Road is a newly-built home with an imposing Victorian-style frontage.
Once inside, however, it soon becomes apparent to visitors that the attractive, high-specification house has been conceived to meet all the expectations of modern living. It is a home that blends the old and the new with great care and attention.
"It was designed to look like a genuine Victorian home from the outside," says the developer, of Ardleigh-based Tey Developments. "It's a three-storey, detached, buff brick house with double bay windows and a classic portico."
He adds: "This is a beautiful house both inside and out - every last detail has been carefully considered to ensure the new owners enjoy a wonderful lifestyle."

GLASS BALUSTRADE

Boasting five bedrooms each with its own en suite bathroom, the feeling of space is heightened by the fact it has higher than average ceilings.
"All of the rooms on the ground floor have 2.7 metre ceiling heights," he points out. "There is also cornicing in the drawing room, study and entrance hall."
From the light and airy hall, the staircase with its glass balustrade, oak newel posts and handrail ascends to the third floor, making a striking feature.
"From the hall, you can access the study and the drawing room, both of which benefit from the bay windows at front," he explains.
"There is a log-burner in the drawing room and it has a very nice aspect with the bay window and a second window throwing light into the room. There are enough rooms in the house to provide flexibility as to how an owner ultimately wants to use them."

A WARM WELCOME

Timber flooring has been laid in the entrance hall and the study but the drawing room and all the bedrooms have been laid with a neutral coloured carpet. Meanwhile, large ceramic tiles cover the spacious kitchen family rooms and adjoining utility room.
"The whole of the ground floor benefits from underfloor heating, so even on the tiles toes are kept lovely and warm. The kitchen family room has been designed for the dual purpose of family living and entertaining," he says. "There are glazed bi-folding doors opening to a courtyard garden perfect for hosting barbecues in the summer."

GLOSSY FINISH

The fabulous bespoke kitchen fitted made by Dovetails of Colchester has grey gloss, handle-less fitted units with light quartz work surfaces and integrated Miele appliances including an eye-level, double oven, combi microwave oven and ceramic hob with warming drawer. "It's a large spacious kitchen so we have fitted it with both a full-sized fridge and freezer. "The island has a wine cooler and a Franke sink and taps have been installed," says the developer. "In the living space there is room for a table that can easily accommodate up to eight people and a large sofa."
From the kitchen there is a separate utility room, with fitted cupboards and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a door giving access to the side of the property.

BEAUTIFIL BATHROOMS

There are three bedrooms on the first floor including the master bedroom suite, which also has its own dressing room; two more on the second floor are generous doubles. The contemporary en suite bathrooms feature chrome fitted taps and white gloss vanity units offering plenty of storage.
"The two bedrooms on the top floor have the largest en suite bathrooms after the master suite and all the rooms have very pleasant outlooks, some over the tree-lined avenue at the front," he says.

OUTSTANDING LOCATION

The detached house is situated in the much-sought after suburb of Lexden in Colchester and is the last of three properties in the exclusive development.
The property is just a short stroll away from the centre of historic Colchester and North Station where a train to London's Liverpool Street takes about 45 minutes.
The A12, which connects with the M25, heads south towards London or north to Ipswich, while London Stansted is the nearest airport.
Colchester is close to Constable Country, the landscape immortalised by the artist John Constable and is also within easy reach of coastal resorts.
"This is a house which has been built very much for town living but is also within easy reach of the countryside," he says. "It offers enough space for a busy family to enjoy."

SETTING THE SCENE

The courtyard garden at the rear of the property has been designed with easy maintenance and entertaining in mind.
The fully-walled garden has been laid with astro-turf, good quality paving and ample lighting to enable al fresco dining in the summer months.
"It is a good sized space and perfect to host barbecues or parties for family and friends," says the developer.
The house benefits from a paved drive at the front with a small garden area featuring laurels and shrubbery.
It has a brand new buff brick wall interspersed with railings and a single garage providing ample storage.

WHATS NEARBY

The property is a short stroll to the town centre with its diverse shopping facilities and is also within easy reach of excellent choice of schooling facilities including Girls High School, Royal Grammar, Oxford House, St Marys and Sixth Form College. Colchester's North Station is also in easy access serving London's Liverpool Street with a approximate journey time of 45 minutes. The property also enjoys excellent access to the A12 southbound at junction 27, and north and southbound at junction 26.

WITHIN EASY REACH

Trains from Colchester take approximately 50 minutes to London Liverpool Street Station. There is also a range of excellent private and state schools, with the house being within the Hamilton Primary School and Phillip Morant School catchment areas. The A12, which connects with the M25, heads south towards London or north to Ipswich with Stansted being the nearest airport. Towards the Essex and Suffolk border is "Constable Country," the landscape immortalised by the great painter John Constable, and the coast is also within easy reach.

DIRECTIONS

Make your way to Lexden Road, turning into Oxford Road and then right into Creffield road where the property can be found on the right but situated to the left of the Two substantial Semi detached properties that have already been sold and are part of this small exclusive development.
