A stunning 5 bedroom detached 1930s house within a mile and a half walking distance of Chelmsford station

Description

The house occupies a good-sized plot and is set well back from the road behind a mature hedge. The building has part-rendered/part-brick elevations and double-glazed windows under a red-tiled roof. A gravelled drive sweeps up to the house towards the integral garage to the right of the house and there is plenty of additional driveway parking in front.

The well-proportioned rooms have a comfortable feel, with high ceilings and contemporary decor. The ground floor includes a wide entrance hall with a dog-leg staircase leading up to the first floor. The principal reception room - a large sitting room - has an attractive open fireplace and New England-style shutters to the deep bay window and it leads on to the adjacent study/snug which has its own access out onto the side return. An impressive kitchen/dining room runs across the back of the house, offering a large open-plan family space with access straight out into the garden from two sets of bi-fold doors. Off the dining area is a play room, also with its own set of bi-fold doors leading onto the garden.

A separate utility room, cloakroom and integral garaging complete the ground floor accommodation while the upstairs accommodation, which is split over the first and second floors, includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms and an attic room. On the first floor there is a large landing with tall picture window to the side, a master bedroom suite, three other double bedrooms (one of which is also en suite) and a family bathroom. On the second floor is a large guest bedroom, a shower room and an attic room which is used for storage and has the benefit of natural light from two skylights.

The plot is well established and secluded, with mature trees and shrubs surrounding it and a number of deep herbaceous borders planted along the boundaries. A paved terrace running across the back and to the side of the house is ideal for entertaining and leads onto a large lawn.
