Belchamp Walter, Essex

Sold STC £375,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ashcroft is positioned in the centre of the pretty north Essex village of Belchamp Walter. The village centres around a duck pond and is famously the home of Belchamp Hall, used by the BBC as a location for Lovejoy, the popular 90's TV series about a roguish antiques dealer.

The bungalow is positioned in the middle of the village almost directly opposite the pond and is set back from the street behind a large front garden with gravel drive and double cast iron gates. The drive gives access to two single garages and continues to the front door. Established hedging provides privacy at the front and continues along the side and rear boundaries. In total the plot extends to around two thirds of an acre and is predominately lawned and interspersed with established trees and flower/shrub borders. There is an area formally used as a vegetable garden along with two greenhouses. The garden backs directly onto farmland.

Upon entering the bungalow you arrive in a spacious 6ft wide reception hall. Doors radiate to the principle reception room, bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen which all benefit from high ceilings making the rooms feel even bigger. The living room at the front has dual aspect windows which flood the room with light and a central fireplace. At the front on the opposite side of the hall is the main bedroom, whilst bedrooms two and three are located at the back. Being on one level, the accommodation is flexible. All three bedrooms are well proportioned and could be used differently. The bathroom is fitted with a white suite which includes a bath, wash hand basin and WC. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of pine effect cupboards and drawers and a light coloured work surface offering ample space for food preparation. The worktop is inset with a single drainer sink with mixer tap and four ring electric hob. There is a double under counter cooker and space for a fridge and a fridge/freezer. To the side of the kitchen is a utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher.

The nearby town of Halstead is an attractive traditional market town, straddling the River Colne on the Essex side of the border with Suffolk. The bustling High Street runs up the hill between the parish churches of St Andrews and Holy Trinity, offering a variety of independent shops and eateries together with larger supermarkets and a traditional market, held on Fridays and Saturdays. The town boasts a medical centre, dental practices, cottage hospital: schooling for all ages and a number of leisure opportunities including several playing fields and playgrounds, a leisure centre and swimming pool.

Halstead is well placed at the head of the Colne Valley, renowned for its natural beauty, and nestles amongst the undulating open farmland of North Essex. For the commuter, Kelvedon Railway Station is just 10 miles to the south, offering a fast and frequent service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of 50 minutes. The A12 is 10 miles to the east at junction 26; whilst junction 8 of the M11 at Bishops Stortford and Stansted Airport are 25 miles to the west.
