Beautifully appointed lateral home offering over 4,000 square foot of highly specified accommodation ideal for both entertaining and family life. Offering stunning panoramic southerly views over rolling hills, the property is discreetly sited within this well regarded wooded enclave to the north eastern side of Colchester.

The property

The property is entered through a solid semi glazed door opening into a lobby area. The large well located guest cloakroom has a white suite with pedestal basin and plenty of space for hanging coats. The double height reception hall with striking staircase, provides an excellent flow to the property, linking all the principal rooms and is flooded with light from a wide set of French doors and a large skylight. The conveniently placed study is extensively fitted with a range of oak base and wall units which incorporates two desk areas and also provides good storage.

Double doors open into the elegant drawing room which has a dual aspect with a broad set of French doors leading out to the terrace and a window overlooking the leafy gardens to the front of the property. The focal point of the room is a stylish stone mantelpiece with stone hearth suitable for an open fire. There are solid wood floorboards beneath the carpeting in both the drawing room and reception hall if preferred.

Bedroom four is approached from the reception hall and is of generous proportions with a broad window overlooking the garden to the front and benefits from a well appointed ensuite shower room.

The vast family/dining/kitchen is the heart of the home, totalling over 45 ft in length with a series of French windows making the most of the panoramic southerly views across the farmland to the woodland beyond. French doors lead out to the west facing terrace. The room naturally divides into lounge and dining areas.

The sleek Oak kitchen has generous granite work surfaces including a large island with under mounted Franke sink and Aquatherm Hot Tap and integrated chilled larder draws. This area is completed with a ceramic tiled floor. Integrated appliances include; Smeg Range with 6 gas burners, separate hotplate and two electric ovens with extractor above, Smeg Steam Oven, Smeg Microwave, Fisher Paykal Fridge /Freezer and Bosch Dishwasher. Leading from the kitchen, the utility provides additional work surfaces and storage with a sink (insinkerator fitted) ideally placed beneath a broad window affording far reaching views. There is space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A door leads out to the garden and usefully into the double garage which has a 'Glide Roll' electric door.

At first floor level, the spacious and airy landing is nearly a room in itself. The master suite includes a particularly generous bedroom which has space for a lounge area or reading 'nook' and with a wide window and velux offering leafy views. The master suite includes a well fitted dressing room (including drawers and hanging space) and a generous ensuite with double basin, large bath and separate shower complemented by Amtico flooring. Bedroom three is again an exceptionally large double bedroom with a dual aspect and wonderful far reaching views and there is plenty of space for wardrobes. It benefits from an ensuite shower room. Bedroom two is a charming room with a large amount of light from a velux and large window offering farmland views. There is a good- sized fitted wardrobe and the ensuite has a double ended bath and separate shower cubicle.
