Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A period house in need of some modernisation in a village setting on the outskirts of the city of Chelmsford.

Location

Meadowsweet sits back from the road at the heart of Bicknacre village within easy access of its shops, amenities and school (Priory Primary School). The village is surrounded by a wealth of National Trust wood and heathland, including the historic landscape of Danbury Park (a former medieval deer park) and is only 3.7 miles from South Woodham Ferrers and 7.5 miles of the city of Chelmsford and its excellent choice of facilities, which include two outstanding grammar schools, a bustling shopping centre, a station on the main line into London Liverpool Street and access onto the A12.

Description

The house dates back to the 1930s but has been the subject of a number of alterations over the years, including a two-storey extension to the side (added approximately 15 years ago and incorporating an annexe) which complements the building's attractive elevations under a tiled roof. The accommodation extends to 2,678 sq ft and is arranged over two floors, with a large reception room, dining room, garden room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room with boarded loft space and cloakroom downstairs and four bedrooms (one en suite) and a bathroom on the first floor. In the adjoining annexe the accommodation includes a first floor bedroom and shower room (accessible from the first floor of the main house), a ground floor sitting room and L-shaped kitchen breakfast room with access to the garden.

The interior of the house is light and airy, with high ceilings and large double glazed windows. The largest reception room extends from the front to the back of the house and all the ground floor accommodation has been configured to make the most of the views over the garden, with double doors opening straight out onto the garden from the sitting room, garden room and the kitchen.

The four bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor are arranged around a long landing and the master bedroom suite enjoys dual aspect views over the grounds and bespoke fitted wardrobes along one wall. The en suite has a bath whilst the family bathroom has a large shower.

The house sits in approximately a quarter of an acre and is shielded from the road by mature trees and shrubs. In front of the house is a large area of driveway parking and plenty of space for a detached garage or cart lodge (subject to any necessary planning consent), while a paved terrace wraps around the rear of the house and leads onto the lawns which are dotted with herbaceous borders, trees and shrubs.
