General information

Established detached chalet occupying a substantial mature plot of just under 1.2 acres in a non estate location less than 3 miles from Colchester North Station, benefiting from substantial ground floor accommodation and with excellent potential for further development.

The property

Ground floor

The property has substantial accommodation on the ground floor with the main reception hall found at the side where there is wood strip flooring, a recess with space for coats and door leading through to the garden room having matching flooring and UPVC double glazed windows and patio doors leading out to the gardens. There is a large study hall where stairs lead to the first floor accommodation whilst at the rear of the property is the main sitting room with dual aspect, with UPVC double glazed windows overlooking the gardens and central fireplace. There is an opening through to a dining room with UPVC double glazed window to side which also has its own access off the study hall.

The Master bedroom is of double proportion width with double bay window overlooking the front and a range of built-in wardrobes along one wall. A door leads through to its own ensuite facilities with panel bath, vanity unit, wash hand basin, tiled shower cubicle and toilet as well as having a shelved cupboard. Of similar proportion to the main bedroom is the second bedroom again with bay window to front and dual aspect. There is a third bedroom on the ground floor with dual aspect and a shower room with walk-in shower area, pedestal wash hand basin and toilet.

Finally on the ground floor is a large kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired Aga with roll top work surfaces with cupboards under and a range of wall mounted display cupboards and shelving. There is a further run of work surfaces with cupboards and draws under with a double bowl stainless steel sink, bowl and drainer with plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher as well as built-in four ring electric hob. A cupboard conceals the oil fired boiler whilst there is a walk-in pantry cupboard.

First floor

Stairs lead up from the study hall to a landing where there is a airing cupboard and linen cupboard. Leading off the landing is an attic bedroom of good proportion and ceiling height with views over the garden whilst there is also a bathroom with bath, wash hand basin with a separate toilet.

Outside

The property has mature trees along the front boundary with shingled in and out driveway with central lawns leading onto the attached double garage measuring 19' x 18' with power and light connected. There are two up and over doors and personal door to rear. On the side of the property are gates to the garden whilst on the other side is a court yard with a range of outbuildings incorporating a potting shed 17' x 5' 10", a further store 14'1 x 5' 10" and a wood store 9' 4" x 5' 6" as well as a gardeners toilet. A further gate leads through to the rear garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of trees, creating a wonderful setting to the property totalling just under 1.2 acres.

Whilst we understand the property and garden falls within the planning envelope, there has been an overage clause in place on the property for 20 years from the year 2000 as well as a number of tree preservation orders within the gardens.
