Location

An extremely rare opportunity has arisen to purchase this magnificent five bedroom detached residence, set in Colchester's most prestigious road in generous grounds reaching 1/4 of an acre. The property has recently undergone an extensive programme of extensions, upgrades and total refurbishment by the present owners and with spectacular attention to detail - Creating a vast array of stunning, spacious accommodation throughout, approaching 3,700 square feet.

Upon entering this fine home you are initially greeted by a grand reception hall, this leads to a large formal living room with an inset log burner and the true highlight of the home - A stunning open plan kitchen/dining & family space, with bespoke fitted units, stone working surfaces and an array of high quality integrated appliances. Into this light pours from a truly beautiful orangery, which has been constructed using traditional materials and methods and features a Chinese lantern skylight. Furthermore there is a sizeable study/playroom, a cloakroom and a utility room which completes the ground floor.

On the first floor a bright galleried landing space opens to a total of five double bedrooms, three of which feature their own en-suites. There is also a large four-piece family bathroom. A particular highlight on this level must be the master suite, which features elegant high ceilings and a lavishly appointed four-piece en-suite bathroom.

Outside as previously mentioned the property is set in grounds measuring 1/4 of an acre and to the front there is a large sweeping driveway which leads to an integral store room/workshop, there is also two side access points and gardens laid to lawn. To the rear there is a very generous garden which measures 130ft x 55ft, this features an attractive sun patio spanning across the width of the house, the remainder is laid with new turf and enclosed by panel fencing.

Now ready for occupation and with a choice of carpets (subject to negotiation), we would strongly advise internal inspections to appreciate everything this truly exceptional home has to offer.
