5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
This exceptional modern home is located on Workhouse Hill, between the villages of Great Horkesley and Boxted, just moments from the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This superb location offers the best of both worlds, being only four miles from Colchester and its mainline station but at the same time away from passing traffic or interruptions. The house occupies a plot that measures around a fifth of an acre and it shares its position with around a dozen other individual homes, many of which are screened from view by a variety of substantial trees.
The property is substantial, measuring 3218-square feet and having a double-depth footprint plus a sizeable second floor. Highlights include a large bedroom master suite, a kitchen/family room that runs almost the whole width of the rear of the house, three separate reception rooms and four additional double bedrooms which are complemented by three bath/shower rooms.
The house was built in 2016 by a local developer with specifications that include engineered oak floors on much of the ground floor, remote control underfloor heating in every room (on all floors), sash windows on the first and second floors, four fully tiled bath/shower rooms, brushed steel switches and plug sockets, two oak staircases, LED-spotlights in every room, CAT-6 ethernet cabling throughout and a mechanical heat circulation and ventilation system.
As well as being very well-maintained by our clients over their period of ownership they have also invested in a number of improvements including the addition of electric garage doors, a fabulous bespoke fit-out of the boot room and the addition of a retractable, electric awning above the patio.
THE GROUND FLOOR
As the floor plan illustrates the ground floor commences with a nicely proportioned entrance hall that orientates around a central oak staircase with a storage cupboard beneath. This room provides direct access via double doors to the kitchen/family room as well as access to two of the three reception rooms.
The formal sitting room is nicely separated from the rest of the ground floor. It is well-proportioned and focuses on a contemporary log burner set within an oak-surround fireplace. The three remaining reception spaces would suit a number of varied arrangements (including a study) but are currently organised as two playrooms.
The kitchen is separated from the dining/family areas by a breakfast-bar. It has quartz surfaces, an induction hob with an extractor above, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, three ovens (one of which is a microwave), a warming drawer and a fitted fridge and freezer. It also has two sets of bi-fold doors to the garden making it a perfect living and entertaining space during the summer months.
There is a utility room with quartz surfaces, plenty of storage space and space for a washer dryer and a tumble dryer. A separate boot room has external door to the driveway and internal access into the garage; this has been beautifully fitted with bespoke wardrobes, coat pegs, shoe drawers and bench seats. The final room on the ground floor is the WC which is accessed via its own lobby.
THE FIRST & SECOND FLOORS
The first floor has four good-sized double bedrooms. The two largest are at the front of the house and both have their own stylishly appointed en-suite shower rooms with cubicle power showers and back-lit fitted mirrors.
The family bathroom has also been fitted to an extremely high standard with a double-sized walk-in cubicle power shower, a freestanding oval bath with a wall-mounted tap and an LED-illuminated mirror.
Our clients opted to use the whole of the second floor as their master suite meaning they have their own staircase, a landing with a fitted cupboard, a walk-through dressing room, and an en-suite bathroom with a power shower above the bath.
OUTSIDE & OUTBUILDINGS
The plot measures around a fifth of an acre with the house positioned roughly at its centre. To the front there is block-paved parking and turning for up to half-a-dozen cars and access to a double garage which has been fitted with remote control roller doors and sensor lights.
The rear garden faces roughly west and we understand it enjoys the sun almost all of the day and into the evening. It has a patio that runs the width of the house - part of this enjoys shade from the previously mentioned awing which we understand can be set to automatically open or close during sunny, rainy or windy conditions. There is access to the rear garden on both sides of the house.
As well as good access to Colchester North mainline station the property is only four miles from Colchester town centre and around three miles from the A12 in either direction.
The characterful villages of Nayland and Dedham are within easy reach by car as are some super schools including Holmwood House, Littlegarth, St Marys and Colchester Royal Grammar School. Boxted has its own primary school which is just a mile away.
POINTS TO NOTE
We understand the property is connected to mains water, electric and sewerage. It has an oil-fired central heating system and a fast-fibre broadband service (IRO 30-mbps). Council tax band G with Colchester Borough Council (payments iro Â£3000.00 PA).
The property has a water softener and timed external lights. It has also been fitted with a mechanical heat circulation and ventilation system which can be operated remotely. This warms, freshens and circulates air throughout the house.
