A substantial family house in Old Springfield, less than a mile from Chelmsford city centre
Chelmsford City Centre: 1 mile (Liverpool Street from 34 minutes); A12 (Junction 19): 2.4 miles; M25 (Junction 28): 14.6 miles; Stansted Airport: 17.1 miles; Canary Wharf 37 miles.
The property is tucked away behind attractive wrought-iron railings and gates on Arbour Lane; a road leading off the Springfield Road and a mile from the centre of Chelmsford. The city offers an excellent choice of amenities including a bustling shopping centre, some very highly rated state schools including two outstanding grammar schools, three superb private prep schools, a well known independent school (New Hall), a station on the main line into London Liverpool Street and access onto the A12.
The house is understood to have been built in 2006 and is a substantial red-brick property set back from the road on a corner plot. Its elevations under a Wealden-style gambrel tiled roof are enhanced by sash-style windows and a ground floor box-bay.
The accommodation is well proportioned and light and airy throughout owing to tiled floors, high ceilings and a neutral colour scheme. The ground floor is arranged around a central hallway, with the two principal reception rooms (a dining room and drawing room) providing access to the garden. The dining room comfortably seats a minimum of eight, can be opened up into the drawing room and has discreet access through to the kitchen, whilst the 26 ft drawing room has a large fireplace and enjoys a triple aspect with views over the garden to the south from two sets of large French windows. The family room has equally impressive proportions and a study is tucked away at the other end of the hall. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with cream Shaker-style units, black granite work surfaces, integral appliances and an island. There is also space for a table and chairs, as well as access to the utility room.
From the hall (where there is a ground floor shower room), a dogleg staircase leads up to a large galleried landing. The first floor accommodation includes five double bedrooms, including a master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room, another four bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom.
The house is set back in its plot and the gated driveway provides a substantial parking area. The plot extends to 0.2 acres and includes a number of mature trees of note. The rear garden wraps around the house on three sides, is primarily laid to lawn with a raised deck at the rear built to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sun. A picket fence runs along the southwest boundary.
Square Footage: 3507 sq ft
Acreage: 0.22 Acres
