PROPERTY Constructed in 1929 and having remained in the same ownership since the mid 1960's, the rare opportunity has arisen to acquire this delightful family home. Set back from the road and screened by a mature and well-manicured hedge, the property is approached by a spacious driveway with parking for multiple vehicles.

On entering the property, the entrance hall provides access to the first floor and has doors leading off to both the living room and dining room. The triple aspect living room, (with feature gas fire), can be accessed from the dining room as well as the entrance hall and offers access to the patio via large, double glazed sliding patio doors. A very useful walk-in storage cupboard as well as a further under stairs cupboard completes the living room.

In the 1980s a single-storey rear extension was added to create a large kitchen breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a fantastic outlook over the mature garden. Appliances include a gas oven, gas hob, space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a fridge/freezer.

The kitchen also contains a recently installed, wall mounted gas boiler and a convenient pantry. The dining room concludes the ground floor accommodation and benefits from a bay window to the front of the property

The first-floor landing provides access to all three bedrooms. The master bedroom is dual aspect and the rear is located immediately next to the bathroom, so could lend itself to the creation of an en-suite (subject to consents and building regulations), still leaving a good-sized bedroom. Bedroom two is a further double, with bedroom three a large single bedroom. A three-piece family bathroom concludes the internal accommodation.

OUTSIDE To the front of the property there is a driveway, providing ample off-street parking, side access leads to the rear garden as well as the garage. The rear garden commences with a paved patio, the remainder is then predominately laid to lawn.

Well-kept mature borders provide a very high degree of seclusion. A pond with central island sits at the midway point of the rear garden. A timber tool shed can be found at the end of the garden as well as further workshop which is attached to the rear of the garage.

SITUATION The property is conveniently located in the sought-after area of Braiswick and is within walking distance of Colchester train station with journey times to London being under one hour, and close to the popular Colchester Golf Club.

The A12 is easily accessed as is the attractive Dedham Vale and Stour Valley.

The local primary school was rated as 'good' at the most recent Ofsted report and highly desirable secondary schooling options nearby include; Colchester Royal Grammar & Colchester High School for Girls.

Independent schools include St Marys and Holmwood House Prep School. Colchester itself benefits from all the leisure, recreational and shopping facilities expected of a major regional town.
