Property Description

A unique and highly individual family home situated towards the far end of this secluded lane, placed just off Thaxted Road with good access to Saffron Walden’s Common, main centre and all local amenities. The property really is one of a kind having been created by the current owners over a number of years to now provide spacious and enormously versatile living accommodation arranged over three floors.

The front door opens into an entrance vestibule with windows to one side, a glazed door into the principal hall with staircase to the first and lower ground floors and a door to a cloakroom. There are three reception rooms including an attractive triple aspect sitting room with a glazed door leading to a rear timber deck, a family room with a window to the rear, fireplace with electric fire and double doors opening onto a rear timber terrace, a home office/study overlooks the front and provides a perfect space for those who work from home. The first floor landing leads to three good sized bedrooms, two of which feature en suite shower rooms, in addition to the family bathroom which contains a three piece suite.

The lower ground floor features an impressive kitchen/family room which really is a perfect space for entertaining and has two windows to the rear and double doors opening to a sheltered timber decked area and rear garden. The kitchen itself has an extensive range of work surfaces, storage cupboards, breakfast bar, integrated appliances including a hob with extractor fan over, double oven, dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer. There is a secondary work area with circular sink, further storage cupboards and space for additional appliances. The kitchen links to an attractive seating area with full height windows looking over the rear garden and opens to a garden room with a semi-vaulted ceiling, three skylight windows and bifold doors to the rear garden. These two areas combine to create most attractive and versatile open plan living space. A further double bedroom is accessed from the garden room and features a walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower area.

Outside, the property has an extensive gravelled driveway and parking area with space for several vehicles to the side of the property, which in turn leads to a double garage with twin up electric doors. There is an external staircase accessed from the rear garden leading to accommodation above the garage, which includes a sitting room with adjoining kitchenette and a bathroom with a three piece suite.

The front garden combines soft and hard landscaping with bark chippings and planters with a variety of established shrubs. The garden is enclosed by an attractive timber fencing and beyond this, a further gravelled area provides additional parking space if required, and is also used by neighbouring properties.

The garden to the rear offers secluded outside space which has been thoughtfully landscaped and arranged over a series of different levels. A composite deck at the back of the house forms a broad ‘L’ shape and links to a covered seating area, providing an ideal space for entertaining. The lower garden has two areas of artificial grass interspersed with paving, pathways and steps rising to the second tier of garden combining soft and hard landscaping with a summer house to one side. Beyond this is an area of natural lawn bordered by established shrubs and two timber sheds.
