Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Nestled down a quiet cul-de-sac, with driveway parking for a couple of family cars, this property is an oasis of calm whilst remaining within touching distance to the heart of the city! Yarwood Road remains one of the best kept secrets in Chelmsford; great 1930s private properties less than a mile from the town centre and just over a mile to the station, nearly everything of interest in Chelmsford is within walking distance! But change direction and within 10 minutes you can be in the Chelmer Retail Park, or a couple of minutes more you are playing with the family in Corporation Park!

This home retains many of the original features that so many of us love about properties from that period. All 4 chimney breasts remain, in the living room, dining room, master bedroom and second bedroom, with period fireplaces still found in the upstairs rooms. Picture rails around the rooms add another feature that is so often overlooked but help create an ambience of years past. The two bay windows in the front rooms were designed to allow extra light into the rooms due to the additional panes of glass, and they both continue to perform their tasks well!

Of course, you cannot forget that nearly 90 years ago when this house was being built it was given a large garden that was used for a multitude of purposes, and so today in the 21st century when new properties are built with postage stamps for gardens, we can fully appreciate the uniqueness of this family home, 1 mile from the centre of town with a 60 foot garden! Whether you and the family wants to play football, badminton, grow some vegetables, sunbathe all afternoon, or add a 'man cave' shed at the bottom of the garden, with this garden you can do them all and more besides.

If you are looking for a good family home, well connected to local transport links and close to local amenities then look no further, make an appointment online and see how this property can fulfil your future aspirations.

  • Living Room

    3.99m x 3.3m (13.1 sqm) - 13' 1" x 10' 9" (141 sqft)

  • Master Bedroom

    3.96m x 3.32m (13.1 sqm) - 12' 11" x 10' 10" (141 sqft)
