4 Bedroom House Under Offer
This well-presented Georgian style property was built originally by Hopkins Homes and is located on the sought after Lawford Place development on the fringes of Manningtree and the Dedham Vale.
The house has an unusually large garden for a property of its type with a plot approaching a quarter of an acre and a rear garden that includes a copse (populated with bluebells in the Spring) and two areas of lawn; this makes the house perfect for families with children who enjoy playing outside, or for keen gardeners.
Inside, the house is larger than most four-bedrooms homes with three reception rooms, a study/playroom/music room plus two en-suites and a family bathroom on the first floor.
THE GROUND FLOOR
As the floorplan illustrates the ground floor is nicely arranged with a good amount of reception space. This includes a double aspect sitting room centring on an attractive gas fire, a recently renovated (and re-roofed) garden room, a separate dining room and a study at the front of the house which is currently in use as a music room but would also make for a playroom.
The kitchen/breakfast room is well-fitted and includes a large gas range cooker with extractor, space for a large fridge freezer and a breakfast bar for three people. We expect that any new owners wishing to create a more open-plan arrangement could remove the dividing wall between the kitchen and the dining room. Other ground floor space includes a WC and utility room.
THE FIRST FLOOR
There are four bedrooms on the first floor with the master and the guest suite overlooking the front of the property. These both have modernised en-suite shower rooms and fitted wardrobes. The two remaining bedrooms can both accommodate double beds and also share the use of a family bathroom; this was also modernised by our clients in recent years.
OUTSIDE & OUTBUILDINGS (see site plan).
As mentioned, the plot measures 0.23 of an acre with the rear garden facing east for morning sun. Immediately to the rear of the house there is lawn with beds to one side and a patio to the other, both of which enjoy a very nice backdrop onto the copse.
There are various large trees in the copse (including serval limes) and it provides a brilliant play space for children. Our clients have created additional lawn and patio areas beneath the trees and there is also a summer house.
At the front there is a semi-circular area of west-facing lawn that was recently re-turfed. A shared access road to the side of the property provides access to a double garage with parking for three cars to the front.
The property is one of the larger detached homes on Lawford Place, a collection residential homes on a private drive in the village of Lawford. Manningtree town centre and waterfront are only a mile from the property where buyers will find a good number of shops and restaurants including a large Co-op supermarket.
Manningtree mainline station is just half a mile from the property where a direct service runs to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of around an hour. Lawford Church of England Primary school is also an easy walk from the house.
