Tenure: Freehold

Space, character and farmland views are what await you here at Briarpatch. Situated with no neighbours to the left of the property but rural countryside, it blends country living without having to be secluded. Easy access to Brightlingsea, Colchester & Great Bentley, for all your shopping needs and Mainline Railway Stations and the A120 leading to the A12 both London and Ipswich bound only a short drive away.

This generous detached property hosts three comfortable bedrooms, two family bathrooms, three reception rooms and occupies a plot of 0.35 acre (sts) with a 170ft rear garden (sts).

Upon entering Briarpatch, through the double glazed uPVC door, your attention is immediately drawn to the light Oak Parquet flooring that not only lines the entrance hall floor but spreads throughout most of the ground floor accommodation in the Sitting Room, Dining Room and Ground Floor Bedroom, meticulously restored by the current owner.

The Entrance Hall itself, is light and bright with two double glazed windows to the front, stairs leading to the first floor with plenty of understair storage and a cloak area also to hide your coats and boots.

The Sitting Room starts to reveal the character of the property with its bay window and dual aspect, an open iron fireplace provides a dramatic feature, and two sliding glazed doors separate this comfortable room from the Dining Room so two functional rooms can be opened up to make one big entertaining space, perfect for family "get togethers".

The 14ft x 12ft Dining Room again is dual aspect with access from here to the Kitchen and patio doors leading out into a conservatory lean-to.

Briarpatch has a well-equipped modern Kitchen with plenty of floor and wall mounted units and work surfaces. Your kitchen sink looks out over your 170ft rear garden and the farmland fields to the side. Appliances include a CDA double width oven, 5 ring gas hob with extract hood over, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer. A handy storage cupboard is home to the wall mounted boiler and finishing touches include the pelmet down lights, built in wine rack and tiled flooring.

Just off the Kitchen is the 15ft Garden Room with views of your front and rear gardens. The tiled flooring continues from the Kitchen through and double glazed french style doors open out onto your patio and decked area of the rear garden.

Back through in the Entrance Hall you will find the first of the two family bathrooms. This ground floor shower room doubles up as a handy utility with plumbing for washing machine and work surface above. The rest of the shower room has a three piece white suite with shower cubicle, low level W.C and wash hand basin, tiled flooring with part tongue & groove wood panelling on the walls, heated towel rail and measures a good 9'1" x 6'7".

Bedroom Three can be found on the ground floor, measuring 12'1" x 11'1", and again is dual aspect with a bay window to the front and so lovely and bright with views over your very private front and side gardens.

Moving to the first floor landing with its storage cupboard and access to eaves providing further storage, loft access and a double glazed window frames the view of farmland and Thorrington Church. Bedroom One is a decent double measuring 13'4" x 11'5" (max measurement) and character can be found here also with its wash hand basin in the corner of the room. A double glazed window looks out over the private front garden. Bedroom Two is currently being used as a study/office and measures 14'10" x 8'10". Dual aspect again to the side and rear and again stunning rural views with the church in the distance. Recess storage and access to further eaves storage which is more like another room.

The Family Bathroom on the first floor measures 10'6" x 8'2" and is fully tiled with a four piece white suite comprising a claw-foot rolled top bath with mixer taps and shower attachment, corner shower cubicle, low level W.C and a wash hand basin inset to vanity unit with marble top...and yes a double glazed window to the rear with the views!

Moving outside, the total usable frontage is circa 3500sq ft (sts). Enclosed by mature shrubs and trees it creates a lovely private space. The property is approached through two lit pillars onto a pea shingle T-shaped driveway leading to the triple length garage and workshop. The rest is mainly laid to lawn with many mature shrub, flower and rose beds.

You have gated access to the rear garden from here and is found on both sides of the property. External power sockets are located around the property along with lighting. The rear garden is approx. 170ft x 62ft (sts) and has a decked dining area, a further paved patio dining area, two timber sheds to remain along with a double length glasshouse. The rest is mainly laid to lawn with many mature shrub and flower beds and borders and a beautiful eucalyptus tree to the rear boundary.

Access from the rear garden to the workshop with light and power, windows to the side and rear, in turn leads you through to the garage, again with power and light and all in all measures approx. 36ft in length.
