History & Background
Originally built in 2003 on a 0.2 acre plot(stls) and set on a quiet cul-de-sac, this detached five bedroom home is one of just four equally impressive properties that share a private road. The well laid out accommodation extends to approximately 2300 sq. ft and comprises of a generous reception hall with ground floor cloakroom, good size living room and kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, home office/study and utility room.
The layout of three reception rooms plus kitchen/breakfast room provides an excellent flow and a diverse living environment within the property, offering plenty of spots to find some privacy, if needed. On the first floor, the five double bedrooms provide all the space needed to customise and furnish to your own preferences. There is enough off road parking to allow the existing double garage to be converted into a gym. With a good size rear garden, the property also lends itself well for outdoor dining and entertaining.
Planning has been approved by Colchester Borough Council for a double story extension and additional single garage.
