1920’s detached house with a stunning 130ft garden offering 2,200 square feet of beautifully presented accommodation and far reaching views.
A handsome 1920’s detached family home located within the picturesque village of Coggeshall. The original house has been sympathetically extended in recent years creating a wonderful family home with a comfortable layout. A spacious entrance hall, with downstairs cloakroom, leads through to the ground floor living area where the rear of the property has been extended in a thoughtful way that takes full advantage of the views over the beautiful gardens. Within the original house there is a generous living room with large bay window overlooking the front garden and a fireplace with log burner. The original dining room is now a sitting room / music room which leads seamlessly into the stunning kitchen extension. This room is flooded with natural light through the large sky lantern and sliding doors that fully open out to a patio terrace. The kitchen area is fitted with an extensive range of quality units incorporating integrated appliances along with an island. A utility cupboard provides an area for a washing machine to be hidden out of sight. There is plenty of space within the family / dining area to have a large dining table and seating which makes this a fantastic sociable space. An office / bedroom 5 is situated off the kitchen family room and oak stairs lead up to a playroom which could also be converted to a bedroom if required.
On the first floor the property has been altered to work with modern living. The principal bedroom is a fantastic room and like the living room features a bay window. An extensive range of wardrobes allows for plenty of hanging space and there is an en-suite fitted with a quality modern shower suite. Bedroom two is a lovely room with stripped floorboards and a rear aspect overlooking the garden whilst bedroom three, another double room, has a door leading out to the balcony. A fourth bedroom is currently used as an office and there is a beautiful bathroom with shower over the bath.
The house is set back behind a mature hedge allowing good privacy to the living room whilst a five-bar gate secures the driveway where there is space for several cars in front of the garage. The rear garden is a fantastic space, landscaped and stocked with a plethora of flowers and fauna. A patio terrace leads off the rear of the house and provides access to a workshop attached to the rear of the house. Steps lead up to a level and vast lawn that extends to the rear of the plot. There is space for a Wendy house (current Wendy house not included) and a rear vegetable plot where a summer house is situated, a place where the current owner oftens works from. Whilst standing at the rear of the garden looking back at the house, you can really appreciate the level of work and design undertaken to create this lovely home and the garden itself is a wonderful space to relax.
