This 1610 built home has been much-improved during our client's ownership and is a wonderful home for entertaining thanks to a semi-open plan ground floor.
Improvements to the property include a new roof, high-grade insulation throughout, three sets of bi-fold doors (making it extremely light for a house of its age), a newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, a mix of modern and period style radiators, modern bathrooms, log-burners in two of the reception rooms and the addition a solar-panels that provide a high-tariff income and contribute towards the property's impressive EPC rating.
For buyers who work from home or who have a hobby, a useful garden office with a fast internet connection is positioned just a few meters from the house. This has an outlook over the garden which can be enjoyed in the summer months whilst a (third!) log-burner makes it ideal for use all year round.
The house is located on a quiet, un-adopted residential lane only minutes on foot from a pharmacy, two take-away's, a Café, a One-Stop grocers, a Primary School and a Doctor's surgery. Kirby Cross station is less than half a mile from the front door with links into Colchester and the City of London.
A fully fitted and very stylish kitchen/breakfast room opens directly onto a west-facing patio and is appointed with two ovens, a microwave, a coffee maker, an induction hob and two sinks.
Other highlights of the ground floor include a central dining room which is open-plan to the kitchen and which has a log-burner within a red-brick inglenook fireplace, a sitting room with similar log-burner arrangement and a bay-window, plus a delightful family room which has bi-fold doors to a private patio. There is also a WC and entrance hall.
The master suite is most impressive with a vaulted ceiling and Velux windows. Bi-fold doors in-front of a Juliet Balcony allow in plenty of light and there is a series of fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom (with a jet-wash cubicle power shower).
