Tenure: Freehold

An exceptional modern house in a very desirable location.

Location

Squirrels occupies a secluded position in Little Baddow, which is in a picturesque conservation area, surrounded by a wealth of National Trust and heathland, in the heart of the Chelmer Valley.

Little Baddow is a very desirable village with two public houses (The General's Arms and The Rodney), a highly recommended preparatory school (Elm Green), a village hall, two long-established churches and its own sports ground and clubhouse (which is home to a local cricket club in the summer months). The village lies just north of the village of Danbury, which has its own extensive range of local shops, amenities and schools (including the Heathcote Preparatory School and Nursery) and is only 5 miles due east of the city of Chelmsford, which again offers an excellent choice of facilities, with a bustling shopping centre, two outstanding grammar schools, a station on the main line into London Liverpool Street and access onto the A12.

Description

The house sits back in its plot at the end of a long drive and was built in the 1970s although it has subsequently been extended. It is exceptionally light and airy inside, with deep windows and high ceilings and the high specification finish continues throughout the house, with a bespoke Nicholas Anthony kitchen, Siemens appliances and Porcelanosa sanitary ware. The accommodation extends to 2,495 sq ft over two floors and the ground floor accommodation includes a reception hall extending from the front to the back of the house, a large L-shaped sitting room looking over the garden, an adjoining dining room with bi-fold doors leading out onto the terrace, a study and a 23 ft kitchen/breakfast room that leads directly onto the rear deck and garden beyond. The master bedroom with its en suite on the ground floor enjoys views across the gardens and the two other ground floor double bedrooms also have en suites. There is a guest bedroom suite on the lower floor which enjoys access directly onto the garden.

The house sits on a plot of over two thirds of an acre and is set back from the road behind a mature hedge at the end of a long gravel drive, flanked by a formal lawn, more mature trees and shrubs and herbaceous borders. A substantial split-level deck extends across the rear of the house, creating an al fresco entertaining area enclosed by toughened glass and leads down onto a terrace which wraps around the house and provides full sun throughout the day. A large lawn lies beyond the deck and another sun deck is set further down the garden. Evergreen trees and herbaceous borders ensure a sense of privacy is maintained throughout the year and there is a beautiful stretch of woodland beyond (Heather Hills), which is managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust.
