Tenure: Freehold

Well proportioned substantial family home, ideal for a growing family, with attractive south west facing garden and double garage with generous private parking. Tucked away in this prestigious private enclave, perfectly situated just a few moments from Colchester Golf Club and only a 15 minute walk to the mainline station to London, yet with easy access to the A12.

The property

The property is entered through a grand front porch which could easily be enclosed to create additional space for coats and shoes. This opens into a generous reception hall with oak flooring, which links the principal rooms of the house. A guest cloakroom is ideally placed leading off the hallway. The good sized study benefits from a broad bay window with views across the front gardens. There is plenty of built in shelving and space for two desks. It would work equally well as a snug or playroom. The sitting room is a good width with a high ceiling and a triple aspect flooding the room with light, including wide French doors facing west leading out to the gardens. There is an attractive painted mantelpiece with stone slips and hearth housing a coal effect gas fire.

The elegant dining room has space for a large table and again there is a broad bay window affording leafy views. A door leads through to the adjacent kitchen/breakfast room. If the property was updated this room could easily be knocked through to create a large family kitchen/diner of just over 22 feet in length. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units offering extensive work surfaces with the sink ideally placed to enjoy views out across the gardens. Integrated appliances include: Siemens oven and second oven, Bosch dishwasher, fridge freezer and four ring gas hob. There is also space for a fridge/freezer in the utility room. The utility is a good size with a door leading out to the rear, sink, and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The half landing has a pretty picture window providing far reaching views. At first floor level there are four generous double bedrooms connected by a wide landing. Bedroom two is particularly roomy. It has a large double sash window facing south with the advantage of an ensuite bathroom. There is a shower, toilet, bidet and vanity unit with cupboards beneath. Bedroom three also has far reaching views and a wall of built in wardrobes. Bedrooms four and five both have attractive bay windows with plenty of space for bedroom furniture. These latter three bedrooms are complemented by an expansive family bathroom including a bath and separate shower.

At second floor level there is a completely separate master suite which provides a wonderful sanctuary. The light and airy bedroom area has two large veluxes. This leads through to a dressing area which in turn connects to the expansive ensuite. It has a vanity unit with built in storage and a large bath with shower above. This bathroom could easily be reconfigured to incorporate a separate large walk-in shower and bath.

The property is well situated within its plot with the established gardens wrapping around the house and retained by a traditional style brick wall, finished by iron railings. The separate parking area is set back to the right hand side of the house with the large block paved area providing parking for four cars and access to the double garage which has a useful door leading out to the garden. This area could be gated if required.
A side gate leads through the mellow brick wall to the secluded and mature garden which is mainly laid to lawn. There are well stocked borders with mature trees and shrubs and a large terrace, oriented to the south west, which captures the late afternoon sun. Other features include; an attractive pergola with grape vine, small vegetable garden, greenhouse and ornamental pond. There is also a garden shed to the rear of the garage.
