A delightful family home standing in an elevated position with countryside views to the front.
This very comfortable family home occupies a generous plot on a sought-after road on the outskirts of Braintree.
There is a welcoming reception hall, "Aga" kitchen leading to a utility room, dining room, conservatory, sitting room with snug area study/bedroom and cloakroom to the ground floor. The first floor offers three double bedrooms with a generous bath / shower room to the primary bedroom as well as a family bathroom.
The horseshoe driveway provides numerous off road parking spaces and in addition there is a spacious cart lodge, double garage with storage area to the side and workshop / gym to the rear.
The rear garden is very well-maintained with an extensive patio area spanning the entire width of the house, mature shrubs and a series of raised vegetable beds hidden behind Cordon apple trees.
Braintree retains a good collection of historic buildings, including the listed timber-framed properties in the conservation area in the town centre.
For commuters the town has a direct connection to London Liverpool Street, taking around one hour and is approx. 12 miles to Stansted Airport and the M11.
Close by there are plenty of opportunities for walks and riding and of particular note is the nearby Great Notley Country Park which covers some 100 acres of open space. A variety of activities and events are held throughout the year. Families can picnic or fly kites or, for the more energetic, there is an all-weather, multi-activity, floodlit pitch and two grass football pitches. There's also an excellent visitor centre, housed in the award-winning Discovery Centre.
The region boasts a significant number of secondary and primary schools as well as colleges and nurseries. There are well-renowned private schools within easy reach and some of the country’s leading grammar schools in Colchester and Chelmsford.
