`Location, design, quality & style`.

An impressive Brand New 5 Bedroom residence set in ˝ acre of landscaped grounds that back directly on to open farmland.

Homestead Road is one of the most sought after roads in Ramsden Bellhouse, so being located at the western end of this premier and private turning, the property also boasts one of the finest positions within the village.

Whilst enjoying its beautiful semi-rural setting backing directly onto open farmland, this eco-friendly home has been built with attractive `Elizabethan` style elevations giving instant kerbside appeal.

Both the beamwork and windows frames are solid Oak giving an exceptional high quality traditional look.

As well as an exclusive location and landscaped 1/2 acre plot backing farmland, the property itself benefits from spacious, well planned accommodation currently arranged over two floors with the potential to utilise the huge attic space if required.

The large Entrance Hall provides a great first impression with beautiful Oak doors off to a useful Cloakroom and Study along with sets of matching double doors opening to the large contemporary open plan Kitchen/Family area with sleek, ultra modern grey high gloss kitchen units including a large island unit, topped with granite worktops and incorporating a host of appliances.

The Kitchen is adjacent to the Living Room which features a full height fireplace, and both rooms feature bi-folding door systems opening straight out to the west facing rear garden.

There is a decent size Utility Room and the large third Reception Room makes for an ideal Formal Dining Room or Family/Play Room.

Upstairs, the first floor has 5 good size bedrooms (4 with Ensuites) and a very convenient laundry room with plumbing for a washing machine.

In addition, the 500sq ft Loft space offers the potential to be converted into a cinema room, etc.

Eco-features include solar assisted heating and hot water, underfloor heating with individual room thermostats and a clever Rain Water Harvesting System via a 7,500 litre tank with a filter, enabling a huge saving on mains water for washing laundry, cleaning, car washing, garden irrigation, toilet flushing etc.

Externally an oak framed Cartlodge complements the main house and there is parking-a-plenty via the huge expanse of shingled drive.


Ramsden Bellhouse Village

Ramsden Bellhouse is situated to the east of Billericay, roughly midway between the towns of Wickford and Billericay and approximately 8 miles from the city of Chelmsford. The village is also close to Hanningfield Reservoir.

There are two churches (Anglican and Baptist) and a great convenience store called `Hemmings` which has an in-house Post Office and is open from 6am - 7pm Mon-Sat, and 6am - 2pm on Sundays.

The village has a thriving community, much of it centred around the village hall (opposite Hemmings) and the churches. Just up the road is the local pub - The Fox & Hounds and further shops including a great butchers and a hair/beauty salon along with a primary school are to be found in the adjacent village of Ramsden Heath.

The nearby town of Billericay offers a comprehensive range of amenities including a thriving high street, good schools (both state and private) and recreational facilities together with a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street (35 minutes, Monday-Friday), making commuting an easy possibility for those wanting to work in the city but who enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside.

As mentioned, the village is also within easy reach of Chelmsford which boasts the renowned King Edward Grammar School, Chelmsford County High School for girls and New Hall Convent school.


The accommodation:


Entrance Hall

A solid Oak front door leads through to this great first impression, a spacious and welcoming reception area with a large useful cupboard extending right under the staircase.

The ceiling here and throughout the house have a smooth white painted finish with inset downlighting and there are no radiators, as the home has full underfloor heating throughout with each room having a Heatmiser fully programmable thermostat.

The window by the door has a strong, durable, powder coated aluminium double glazed window unit, offering low maintenance and a weather resistant surface combined with the style, finish and warmth of the bespoke handmade solid Oak outer frame. With a lead light finish in keeping with the Elizabethan character of the property too, these same windows have been installed throughout the house.

The attractive hard wearing, wood effect flooring is more hygienic than its natural counterpart, easier to clean, offers lower maintenance and will keep looking great for years to come. We feel this is the perfect flooring option for busy family homes or households with pets, to cope beautifully with the demands of everyday life. As such, this floor has been extended to the kitchen too.


Cloakroom
With a side facing window and fitted with a back-to-wall WC with concealed cistern and a compact floor standing `grey oak effect` Vanity Unit.


Lounge 27ft (8.22m) x 16ft 5" (5m)

Formal Dining/Family Room 16ft 4" (4.98m) x 11ft 6" (3.5m)

Well lit courtesy of the large 10ft wide front window, this second reception room offers much versatility of use; making for a great formal dining room, a fabulous play room or the ideal evening room for watching TV.

Kitchen/Dayroom 23ft 10" (7.25m) x 18ft 6" (5.64m)

The sleek `charcoal grey` high gloss kitchen units are complimented by granite worktops and incorporate a large Island unit giving you storage space, work space and the perfect place to socialise.

Utility Room 10ft 10" (3.31m) x 6ft 3" (1.9m)

Conveniently positioned adjacent to the kitchen the good size Utility Room has the same units as the kitchen (great gloss units with granite worktops) incorporating an undermounted sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine, useful extractor fan and a cupboard housing the controls for the Rainwater Harvesting System.

The Low Energy Rain Director® rainwater management control system delivers clean rain water collected by a rainwater harvesting system to use for washing machines, toilets, the garden and other uses where mains quality water is not required (although if by chance the tank runs dry a simple switch clicks back over to mains water supply).
The Rain Director® was a winner of the HBR Product Innovation Award 2013.

An oak door in this room opens to the side of the property.

This proper bathroom has a full size bath with a mixer/shower, back-to-wall WC and Vanity unit. Wood effect tiled flooring completes the look.

This upstairs laundry room is a sensible and convenient `spin` on the traditional way of the washing being done downstairs in the utility room and then having to lug those baskets back upstairs again. With the compact and quieter machines of today, this is a great idea and one that the new owner will find so time-saving and handy.
Units are to be fitted along the wall with space for a washing machine.

A door at the end leads on through to the boiler room.

The 52ft long transept has been boarded out and temporarily lagged with extra insulation. Subject to local authority approval this area could perhaps be converted to a cinema/hobbies room etc.


Exterior

To the front a large expanse of gravelled drive provides parking for numerous cars and the planned extensive planting to the front will enhance the kerbside appeal furether.

Practical and also very pleasing to the eye, the 2 bay Oak Cartlodge offers a multitude of uses including the obvious under cover car parking.

The rear grounds measures approx. 225ft x 68ft commencing with a large patio area, the remainder will be turfed.
