Part of our Signature collection, a substantial recently built energy efficient 4 bedroom detached house with views over its own grounds of just over 10 acres towards the Pyefleet channel with extensive outbuildings including stabling and a barn with permitted development for a 2 bedroom detached dwelling.

The property is approximately 3 years old with accommodation over three floors with flexibility that the first floor sitting room could be used as a principal bedroom suite. The land has been set up for equestrian use with paddocks and menage centred round a purpose built stable block. Also within the grounds is a large manmade lake. The chicken barn is now redundant and has permitted development for a large 2 bedroom dwelling, whilst at the front of the site is ample parking and a small shop that previously was used for the egg sales.

Ashlyn blends modern contemporary living with high quality interiors and has created a stunning highly energy efficient home with zoned underfloor heating from an air source heat pump. A wide entrance door opens to a large reception hall with exposed farmhouse brick walls and two oak and glass staircases leading to the first floor. Beneath one is a cloakroom with automatic light and the other storage with fuse board and manifolds for the heating. At the front are two reception rooms with a study and family room, whilst at the rear is the fantastic kitchen/dining/living space.

This room has porcelain tiled flooring and 4 sets of bi-fold doors leading to the outside. The Davenport kitchen is beautifully appointed with quartz worksurfaces around the butlers sink with pull out bins and integral dishwasher. A bank of cupboards flow along one wall with a pull-out pantry, lighted shelved storage with pull out draws, recess with Fisher and Paykel fridge/freezer and a hidden set of doors to the utility room. A curved island is topped with granite with glass breakfast bar and has a preparation bowl with ‘quooker’ tap. Beneath is storage and a wine cooler whilst at the end is a walnut circular block with further storage beneath. A 7 ring Smeg range with extraction above completes the cooking area. The utility has quartz worksurfaces with butler sink and spray tap with tall cupboards with space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A door leads outside.

The first floor vaulted landing is 16’ high and has karndean flooring and exposed brickwork with further oak and glass staircase leading up to the second floor. Along the back of the house is a large sitting room with exposed brickwork at one end and a wood burning stove. At the other end of the room is two sets of bi-folds leading out on to a balcony enjoying fine views. At one end is a step up to an enclosed terrace. The sitting room could equally be split and become further bedrooms if required. There are two double bedrooms on this level with the larger having an en suite shower room whilst there is a separate bathroom with shower.

The second floor has two further bedroom suites almost identical both with commanding views over the land of Ashlyn to the Pyefleet channel. Both rooms have a dressing area with range of open wardrobes and shelving with one of the rooms having a Juliet balcony and ensuite shower room, whilst the other has an en suite bathroom with a slipper bath and separate shower.

Outside
Ashlyn occupies a large frontage to East Mersea Road with a mix of hedging and post and rail fencing. There is ample parking to the front including outside the house and shop. The house has an enclosed area with fencing and gates leading out. At the rear of this is a plant room for the air sourced heat pump with water tanks and also houses a shower room with shower, wash basin and toilet. A gated entrance leads round to the rear with a concrete drive passing 3 post and rail paddocks with water laid on. There is also a small pony paddock. A large concrete courtyard stands in front of the stable block with 4 indoor stables with water connected. Also within the building is a large storage area, a tack room and kitchen. Alongside is the floodlit menage approximately 40m x 20m with professional drainage. The track continues passing a large open barn 65’ x 22’ with solar panels generating electricity. The muck heap has a concrete base and railway sleeper sides. Beyond this is the chicken barn which has permitted development for a 2 bedroom detached dwelling of approximately 1400 sq ft. There is also a large area of rough grass that has been used as a dog training area in the past. Drainage ditches run along the side boundaries and there is also further drainage on site that flows down to a large manmade lake in the far corner. In total the grounds extend to just over 10 acres.
