6 Bedroom House For Sale
Blue Farm House is a well-maintained period property which benefits from some brilliantly designed contemporary extensions. The result is an eye-catching and extremely functional home that combines the best of the old and new.
Many of the property's reception rooms and the kitchen/dining room overlook the two-acre garden, make the house perfect for entertaining in the summer months. This is further enhanced by a pavilion style garden bar and a number of areas of decking.
The house is well-located in the village of Kirby Cross, only two and half miles from the beach at Frinton-on-Sea, fifteen miles from Colchester and less than a mile from Kirby Cross Station.
THE GROUND FLOOR
There are five reception rooms on the ground floor. In the historic part of the building this includes a dining room with space to seat a dozen guests and a large log burner, a sitting room with an open fire, a reception hall and a fantastic family room that opens directly into the kitchen.
The kitchen/dining room has a vaulted ceiling, a large breakfast bar, a fabulous outlook over the garden and air-conditioning. It includes a Quartz surfaced breakfast bar, three ovens, a warming drawer, a fitted microwave (all Neff), an induction hob, dishwasher and a fitted fridge and freezer.
Beyond the kitchen, the house has been extended with a tastefully crafted glass corridor that leads to a 35 x 19- foot entertainment room which has direct access to the rear garden. This room is perfect as a teenager's retreat or a music room, or (with some internal re-configuration) it could be adjusted to become a one-bedroom annex. or offices.
Other ground floor accommodation includes a study, a utility room, a WC, a shower room and an entrance lobby.
THE FIRST & SECOND FLOORS

There are large areas of well-tended lawn punctuated by a number of impressive oak trees, occasional flower beds and a tree-house.

The highlight of the grounds is almost certainly the entertaining complex that sits to the rear of the house. With few near neighbours and total privacy, this space is perfect for summer parties and includes a number of decked patio areas and a handsome pavilion style bar.
There is an alarmed double garage, a cart port, a tractor shed and a gated outside storage area which is also ideal for boat or caravan storage.
