An extremely rare opportunity has arisen to purchase this truly beautiful, five bedroom semi detached residence set in arguably one of Colchester's most sought after roads - Within walking distance of some of the finest schools in the country. Packed with elegance and charm, this imposing home is a fine example of Georgian architecture and was heavily extended in the Victorian era to create an array of spacious, exceptionally well proportioned accommodation throughout totalling almost 3,500 square feet. Internally you are greeted by a magnificent reception hall which features an original staircase winding towards the first floor, this leads to three large principle reception rooms, a door leading down to a sizeable cellar, a ground floor bathroom, a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room and a spacious utility room which completes the ground floor. On the first floor a large galleried landing opens to a total of five double bedrooms, the master featuring an en-suite, there is also a cloakroom and family bathroom. A particular focal point on this level is the fifth bedroom, which resides at the rear end of the house and is partially self contained with it's own lobby and bathroom - A perfect space for young adults wanting some independence or perhaps a nanny. Outside, the property is approached by a large private shingled driveway which leads to a detached double garage. There are also beautiful secluded front gardens, featuring an array of established flowers, plants and trees. To the side of the property there is an additional private courtyard, which provides a delightful al fresco dining space - An ideal area for summer entertaining.
