*** GUIDE PRICE £850,000 TO £900,000 ***

Occupying a unique position adjacent to the historic Chappel & Wakes Colne Railway station. Formally a public house, the property was purchased in the 1980’s as a private dwelling and more recently was purchased by the current owner who has completely restored the property, which now presents as a stunning family home full of charm and stylish decor throughout. Now with the addition of a recently constructed large garage with mezzanine floor and separate detached outbuilding which could be ideal for office space or (STPP) annex accommodation.

The property is found in a cul-de-sac location, at the end of the entrance to the Railway station. A few minutes walk from the house is Chappel village shop, The Swan restaurant/pub and a good primary school are also within easy reach. Colchester and Earls Colne are both around four miles east and west respectively where all necessary services can be found. The station runs an hourly service between Sudbury and Marks Tey (providing access to London Liverpool Street).

The accommodation consists of, entrance hallway with stairs rising to the first floor, doors give access to the ground floor starting with the lounge, this room is a good size stretching the length of the property with the open fire place literally taking centre stage, there are further double doors opening through to the dining area, a room filled with natural light and the recent addition of a large island in the middle of the room. The breakfast room and separate kitchen areas are both open plan from the dining area making this the ideal entertaining space for family and friends alike. The breakfast area affords views to the side of the house making this an idyllic space to sit and enjoy a morning coffee whilst the kitchen has recently undergone a total re-fit. From the kitchen walk through to the rear lobby passing by the handy utility room and downstairs cloakroom, there is also hidden stairs from the kitchen via a 'trap door' allowing access to the cellar. There is a second reception room which can be utilised as you would see fit, this is at the front of the property and of a good size, in our opinion it would make for a good second sitting room.

The property sits in a total plot of (CIRCA) 0.30 acres, STS. The well-established rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of trees and plants (including fruit trees) and there is also a small side garden that enjoys the evening sun. In addition there are a collection of outbuildings that could be converted to garaging or (subject to planning) could be used as additional work from home office space.

Upstairs on the first floor there are four bedrooms all of which are double in size and served by a recently fitted family bathroom. The smallest bedroom enjoys views over the historic railway platforms and carriages, the perfect view for any young child or train enthusiast.

Outside; the property is approached via a driveway which offers ample off road parking for many cars and gives access to both outbuildings. Fenced off from the garden which is accessed by a personal gate to the side, initially with recently laid patio area and steps to a raised lawned area, a good sized space with various trees and small plants being completely unoverlooked. As previously mentioned there is a recently built oversized garage with mezzanine floor, this could be used for many purposes from restoring an old classic car, to potentially running your business from home, the mezzanine floor offers further space, perhaps for a gym or an office.
