General information **Guide Price £725,000 to £750,000**

An early 19th Century Grade II listed 4 bedroom detached house over three levels in this sought-after address amongst excellent schools within a mile of Colchester town centre.

The house retains a wealth of its original character blending with modern amenities with gas fired central heating, ensuite facilities, re-fitted bathroom as well as a utility room and gym. The house is set back from Lexden Road with a low wall topped with railings, an "in & out" driveway, garage and car port, and a delightful and well stocked rear garden.

The columned porch with stone steps leads to a panelled entrance door and into the hall with stairs leading to the two further levels.

At the front is a dining room with fireplace and shuttered sash window which is mirrored across the hall with a sitting room. This room is open to a family room with fireplace and views over the garden. The kitchen is well appointed with wooden worksurfaces on three sides and ample base and wall mounted cupboards. There is a double bowl butlers sink and range cooker.

On the lower ground floor is a study with fireplace and stove and door leading through to a shower room. A utility room houses the gas fired boiler and has an attractive brick floor. At the front of this level is a cellar room, perhaps suitable as a wine store, and a gym.

On the first floor is a landing with access to the four bedrooms and bathroom. The principal bedroom has built in wardrobes and door to an ensuite shower with wash basin and toilet. The second largest bedroom is also at the front whilst the two rear double bedrooms again both have built in wardrobes. The bathroom has a classic white suite with bath, pedestal wash basin and toilet.

The outside A shingled in and out driveway leads to the single garage and side car port retained at the front by a low brick wall topped with railings. A side gate leads to the rear garden with paved patio and lawns with well stocked mature borders providing privacy and interest, whilst in the corner is the base for a greenhouse.

Location The house is found along Lexden Road, less than a mile from Crouch Street where the town centre starts with a range of specialist shops, bars and restaurants. Lexden Road is well known for its impressive houses and excellent schools with a number within easy walking distance of the house. There are also areas of open space ideal for dog walking. The town centre provides many national retailers, bars and restaurants catering for all tastes and has two theatres, two cinemas, the Firstsite art gallery and Norman castle all found inside the Roman walls.

The town has two stations providing access to the coast and London Liverpool Street.
