A stunning Edwardian detached family home sympathetically enlarged to accommodate modern day living.

A substantial Edwardian style family home of red brick elevations under a slate roof offering light, spacious and airy accommodation; beautifully presented throughout. The house has been subject to a full and sympathetic refurbishment and extension; skilfully blending modern open plan living with the traditional charm of Edwardian proportions and architecture.

Of particular note, the newer part of the property incorporates underfloor heating, Lutron lighting system, and a Sonos system, the kitchen is fitted with pyrolytic appliances, and all the windows have been replaced with double glazed sash windows to match its origins.

Radiating on a formal basis from an elegant central reception hall, the rooms deliver a broad variety of atmosphere and use; yet also offer a good degree of flexibility. The sitting room and family room are full of traditional features incorporating fine fireplaces and bay windows flooding with natural light. The dining room however, opens out into the contemporary kitchen/breakfast/family room with skylights and large sliding doors opening out into the garden; the room is finished with its feature lighting and contemporary decor. There is also a sizeable utility room and cloakroom to the ground floor.

The first floor offers five bedrooms, one ensuite, the family bathroom and a separate WC; all enjoying high ceilings and natural light.

Outside

The house stands centrally within its generous plot, offering gardens to both the front and rear with mature trees and hedging to the border. Driveway parking is available to the front of the property, along with an additional parking area in front of the double garage. The property also has external CCTV.

Situation

Witham's mainline railway station is a short walk from the property and offers a regular service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of 45 minutes. The town centre offers a wide range of commercial, shopping and entertainment amenities; as well as great communication links to both the A12 and A120. The nearby City of Chelmsford offers a further range of amenities, including some of the counties best schools including the two grammar schools.

This area, at the heart of Essex, is well placed for numerous leisure activities including a number of golf clubs, together with the River Blackwater to the east catering for a broad range of walking, bird watching and sailing pursuits. The area is also particularly well served for all levels of education; both private and state.

Directions

Travelling north on the A12, at junction 20, take the turnoff for Witham and continue to the roundabout heading straight over (with Aldi on your right). Continue straight over the traffic lights until you reach the mini-roundabout (the Thai Cottage Restaurant on your right) and turn left into Mill Lane. At the double mini roundabouts, head straight over both onto Guithavon Valley, and after about 200 yards on the right hand side you will see the garages, which you should park outside of.
