Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive house occupying a remarkable situation overlooking the Roding Valley on a plot of approximately 0.6 acres.

Description

The accommodation on the ground floor is particularly versatile. Attached to the main house are two sets of double garages which may lend themselves for inclusion into accommodation should a larger house be required. The house is approached through an entrance vestibule which provides access to a cloakroom and into a large sitting/reception hall with stairs to first floor and double doors providing a great deal of natural light opening onto a dining room which overlooks the gardens and valley beyond. Adjacent, the living room is dual-aspect with open fireplace and access onto a glass-retained terrace. At the centre of the house is a study, utility room and kitchen/breakfast room with southerly aspect and views. Attached to the eastern side of the house are two sets of brick-built double garages which offer a facility to be amalgamated into the accommodation, subject to planning permission.

On the first floor the master bedroom has dual-aspect windows with views over open countryside to both front and rear and a range of fitted wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate w.c.

Planning permission is in existence for the conversion of the existing garage into a double bedroom and further bathroom.

Outside: A sweeping driveway passes through the front lawns and also a spur to a hardstanding providing a more secure parking area. The front lawned gardens have established island beds and tree boundary. The lawns continue along the western side of the house, which includes a glass retained terrace enjoying the afternoon sun and ideal for al-fresco dining. Immediately at the rear of the house are two further terraces and a large expanse of lawns which seamlessly integrate with the farmland with a southerly aspect.
