Owner's comments
"We are really sad to be leaving. Over the years we have put our heart and soul into modernising this home with three extensions since the original build in the 1930s. The house is now fully modernised and updated. The downstairs now enjoys a large peaceful open plan area which has natural light streaming in throughout the day as well a separate study / office for privacy. Since Chelmsford received its 'City' status it is thriving. With its fast rail links into London, the house is ideally situated for easy access to just about anything one can think of - schools, transport, restaurants, parks, shops etc"
