A spacious 5 bedroom property with swimming pool in sought-after rural location near Chelmsford.

This impressive country home offers a generous amount of family living accommodation and well-proportioned rooms. The interior is neutrally-decorated throughout, providing an appealing turn-key property for a busy family.

The accommodation is approached via a spacious reception hall leading through into the kitchen and breakfast room, which share an impressive open-plan space with the dining room. This expansive light-filled area features an orangery-style extension, and slate flooring throughout. The kitchen features classic cream units, black granite countertops, a butler sink and a full size range cooker in a traditional brick-lined recess. The 23ft dual-aspect sitting room features an attractive brick fireplace, and two sets of double doors leading out into the garden, extending the living space outdoors. Both a large drawing room and a good-sized family room can also be found on the ground floor, along with a useful fully-fitted utility and a cloakroom.

On the first floor, the master bedroom benefits from a Juliet balcony from which to enjoy views of the garden and countryside beyond, as well as a fireplace and an en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms on this floor, two of which have en suite shower rooms, while the third shares access to the same en suite as the master. A further generously-sized bedroom is located on the second floor, as well as a shower room and a study.

The property is approached via a gated driveway which is large enough for a turning circle and to provide parking for several cars. A separate double-fronted garage is located off the driveway. There is a well-kept front garden with established planting and a wide paved path leading to the covered porch and main entrance. At the rear of the property, a good-sized area of lawn is bordered by well-maintained hedging, and leads down to a fully-paved swimming pool, adjacent to which is a covered entertainment area. The property's land includes wooded areas and an open field.

This property has 2.6 acres of land.
