*Offers In Excess Of £800,000* Very rare to the market is this charming four bedroom, detached home which is well set back & sits behind electric security gates with a video entry system. This substantial semi-rural property is set on a large plot of approx. quarters of an acre which makes it ideal for further extending (STPP). There is not only a charming front garden but a driveway with a small roundabout, offering parking for at least 8 cars, car port for a further two cars and a double garage. The garden, which has been lovingly landscaped & improved, wraps around the entire property. A new side patio recently installed, means there are now three large paved areas for enjoying the garden & for entertainment. This is a home for nature lovers where you can listen to the birdsong, watch the squirrels at play & enjoy the beautiful sunsets while relaxing in the conservatory. The property benefits from a wealth of natural light throughout and features an L-shaped sitting/dining room which has front, side & rear aspects, large kitchen with island and views to the front and back, conservatory, utility room with a study and downstairs W/C, four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a wealth of storage space. The master bedroom (with en-suite), also has sliding doors opening to a balcony that enjoys views to the back garden & farmland.
The current owners fell in love with the property for its individuality, potential, privacy & lifestyle factors - including a covered swimming pool built within a Scandinavian style log cabin in the rear garden, with shower & changing facilities. This two-storey house is located on what used to be ancient woodland called Long Wood bordering farmland and a nature reserve offering its next occupier a real sense of peace and tranquillity with the sound of the outdoor fountains playing to the front, side & back of the property, simply adding to the peacefulness of the location. The garden has a variety of shrubs and trees, and, in addition to the oak, hornbeam and birch trees, there are a number of fruit trees and a grapevine.
The property achieved planning consent in 2008 for an extension to the front, & internal alterations including enlargement of both the sliding doors in the living room & the first floor balcony from the master bedroom, looking out onto the back garden. Whilst this has lapsed it is something which could be re-applied for and there are other houses on the street which also have had further development setting the possibilities for the next owner. The property's location is not only ideal for its peacefulness but is well connected for transport links being less than 5 mins away by car from Harlow Shopping Centre & within walking distance of local shopping areas. It is approx. 4 miles from Junction 7 of the M11, which in turn is 6 miles from the M25. Epping town & underground station are 5 mins away by car & Harlow has 2 railway stations with fast trains to Liverpool Street & to Stansted airport, which is just 12 miles to the north.
