4 Bedroom Detached House Under Offer
Built in 2011, this farmhouse style home provides excellent living space which includes substantial reception areas and an extremely impressive master bedroom suite.
The property has a fabulous plot of around 2.7-acres which includes areas of private garden and patio to the south, west and east, meaning the sun can be enjoyed in privacy at any time of day. Around two-acres of meadowland gives the property equestrian potential although the house is available without this space if buyers prefer.
Whilst the immediate environs are peaceful and rural, the centre of Great Bentley village with its pubs, shops and station is just one and half miles from the house by road and just half mile by footpaths.
There are four reception rooms on the ground floor with three of these being semi-open plan to one another and spanning the width of the rear of the house.
These include a beautiful timber-conservatory/dining room which opens via two sets of bi-fold doors into both the kitchen and the sitting room. There is a games room with an external set of bi-fold doors to the garden and a very light central sitting room with a large gas fire set within a stone surround. The fourth reception room is currently is use as a gym but would make for a formal dining room or a playroom if needed.
The substantial farmhouse-style kitchen enjoys outlooks to the front and rear and orientates on a gas and electric Aga (with extractor) and a central island. It has granite surfaces with bespoke wooden units beneath and includes Miele appliances. Other ground floor accommodation includes a utility room, a study and a WC.
FIRST & SECOND FLOOR
The master suite is sizeable and runs the depth of the house on the first floor. It includes a 21-foot sleeping area, a dressing room, a vaulted ceiling, five sets of wardrobes and windows that face three directions - the largest of which has far-reaching easterly views. Its sizable en-suite has a cubicle shower, his-and-her's basins, a freestanding bath and a feature towel rail. There is even an additional separate WC within the master suite.
The guest bedroom is also on the first-floor has a large en-suite (with a shower and bath) as well as four sets of fitted wardrobes. The two remaining bedrooms are both double sized and are perfect for youngsters, sharing the top floor and a shower room between them - these have views from Velux windows which are fitted with blackout blinds.
OUTSIDE AND OUTBUILDINGS (see site plan).
As mentioned, the plot measures 2.7-acres although our client (a local landowner) is happy to sell the property with less garden if need be.
To the front of the house there is a sizeable lawn, a gated and block-paved driveway (with parking for more than a dozen cars), a cart lodge with a room above which is accessed from stairs at the side, and a double garage which is attached to the house. The various beds and borders are low-maintenance and have been fitted with a "Leaky Hose" watering system to save time watering plants in the summer months.
At the rear there are two patio areas, a large greenhouse, a trellised deck and a substantial lawn which makes for an ideal play space for children. As well as the formal garden there is around two acres of meadow found to east and south of the house; this has been largely unused but could be fenced to create grazing or paddock land.
St Mary's Grange is located on St Mary's Lane around a half a mile to the south of the village of Great Bentley in north Essex.
Great Bentley is one of north Essex's most notable villages, in large part due to its 43-acre village green which is recognised as the second largest in the country and which hosts many social and sporting events including an annual village show.
It offers two public houses, a restaurant, a Tesco express, a business park, a primary school and a pharmacy. Great Bentley train station runs a service to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of around one hour and twenty minutes. The towns of Colchester, Clacton and Frinton-on-Sea are all around fifteen minutes away by car.
