A 5 bedroom family house with breath-taking views over the Wid Valley close to Chelmsford city
Chelmsford station: 2.6 miles (Liverpool Street from 34 minutes), A12 (junction 16): 1.3 miles, M25 (junction 28): 13 miles, Stansted Airport: 23 miles (all distances approximate).
The house is situated on Galleywood Road, which lies approximately 2.6 miles south of the city of Chelmsford and a mile from Galleywood Common. The A12 is within 1.5 miles and provides access to the M25 (junction 28) and A130 to the east.
Chelmsford was awarded city status in 2012 and offers a wide variety of facilities – a bustling shopping centre, excellent private and state schools and superb transport links including a station on the main line into Liverpool Street and access onto the A12.
Galleywood Common, close by, is an area of approximately 175 acres of woodland and open common which borders the River Wid, was once famous for its racecourse (which was one of the oldest in England) and has subsequently been declared a local nature reserve.
Galleywood has three primary schools, a parade of shops, a village hall, a library, several pubs and St Michael and All Angels Church on Galleywood Common, which has a thriving congregation.
The property was constructed in 1967 and was the subject of a two-storey extension in 1989, providing for a large master bedroom suite with en suite dressing room and bathroom and on the ground floor a utility room and garden store. The property occupies an elevated site of 0.24 acres and enjoys wonderful views to the rear over the Wid Valley and beyond towards Hylands Park.
The accommodation has been designed so that the principal reception rooms and bedrooms overlook the property's grounds and enjoy the views beyond. A patio has been built across the back of the house to provide a lovely space for al fresco dining. The gardens slope gently away from the house, are predominately lawned with established deep borders providing all year colour and interest.
At the front a substantial block-paved drive provides off-road parking for several vehicles and access to the integral double garage.
Square Footage: 2438 sq ft
From the Miami roundabout proceed on the B1007 towards Galleywood. At the top of the road (at the mini-roundabout) turn right onto Galleywood Road. Continue for just under a mile and the house will be found on your right-hand side.
