Imagine returning to this 4/5 bed home after a hard days work; a unique contemporary property evolved from an early 1900s house. Located in Ford End within the Parish of Great Waltham, this is a must view with an amazing kitchen diner at the heart of the property!

This home is ideal for anyone who wants to unwind and relax away from the buzz of town and city living. Surrounded by footpaths and country walks, the village truly offers the 'great outdoors' on your doorstep; ideal for dog owners but equally as attractive to anyone who appreciates the countryside. The local towns of Chelmsford and Great Dunmow offer the usual range of local amenities, with driving times of only 18 or 11 minutes respectively, and if your destination is further afield then Stansted is within reach in 14 minutes!

These few words cannot describe everything this house has to offer - viewing is essential! Listed below are many of the attributes of the house, but even then we have reached the limitations of the website. Rebuilt from the bottom up, with a huge extension, the former property is now just a footnote of what it has become. Versatility truly describes this property, with so much space your imagination will run wild with possibilities and the opportunity to make this home your personal haven.

Can you imagine yourself dining with friends and family around a large table, with two walls fully open to the elements - well in this house you can? The kitchen and dining area is breathtaking and offers a true connection to the outdoors with the surround folding doors opening up to the decked area of the garden. Entertaining and parties in this house will be so much fun, though you must prepare yourself for envious looks from your guests!

This property is a must view; the design and layout offers versatility with functionality, the rooms are spacious, the finish and attention to detail outstanding - in other words this is all but in name a new build home without the estate, without the cost cutting shortcuts and without the cramped design. You can leave your old tools at your old house as this is as perfect as it gets!
