A spectacular country house located in the highly desirable, semi-rural village of Little Leighs.
"Holly Tree House" was originally built in the 1930's and is nearing the end of an extensive modernisation and extension project. Carrying out this considerable undertaking are the well-renowned local developers Vesta Homes who have spared no expense in creating this amazing family home.
It stands on a delightfully undulating, mature plot of approximately 1.5 acres (STLS) with open countryside surrounding the extensive plot which is only 4 miles from Felsted and 2 miles of A131 with links to Braintree and Chelmsford.
You enter through a large centrally positioned front door into a reception hall with herringbone tiled floor and full height storage cupboards. This welcoming room provides access into all of the primary ground floor reception rooms including a ground floor cloakroom suite, office, snug, sitting room and living room.
The hallway continues through to the spacious, luxury kitchen diner / living room with a feature "wall of wine". It occupies the entire rear of the house with 2 pairs of double doors leading out to the rear terrace with views over the gardens. Leading off the kitchen is a walk-in larder, a laundry room, boiler / plant room and a second ground floor cloakroom.
The dog-leg staircase takes you to the first floor with a vaulted ceiling and roof lantern above.
To the first floor there are five bedrooms ( three en-suite ) and a family bathroom. The Principal, and second bedrooms both have vaulted ceilings and double doors with a Juliette Balcony providing views over the gardens and beyond. The principle bedroom is an impressive 42 sq m which includes a generous dressing area and en-suite incorporating a bath, shower, twin sinks and wc.
The remaining bedrooms are all generous double rooms and bathrooms all have high specification fittings.
There is an extensive parking area accessed through double gates and a triple bay cart lodge with EV charging point. The gardens have a good selection of mature trees and shrubs as well as an extensive lawn.
The adjacent paddock extending to 1.4 acres available by separate negotiation.
Specification sheet available upon request. All photos supplied are virtually staged to give you an idea on how the rooms will look. The flooring, fixtures and fittings will not be as you see in the photos. Buyers are asked to speak with Heritage for a detailed specification sheet before committing to a purchase.
