Property Description

BOWER HOUSE is a substantial and significant village house of distinctive style and character, occupying a lovely secluded central location within what remains a popular and highly regarded Essex village.

Accommodation is arranged over two floors extending in total to about 4800 sqft. The front door opens into a large open reception area with bay window to the front, stairs rising to the first floor and door down to the cellar. There are three principal reception rooms; a lovely drawing room with feature pink marble fireplace with decorative surround, attractive wooden floor and glazed doors opening to outside. An adjoining orangery is linked by glazed double doors and has windows on two sides incorporating glazed double doors with a further overhead glass lantern flooding the room with natural light. A separate dining room features an impressive inglenook fireplace, beautiful wood block flooring laid in herringbone style and an opening linking to the kitchen. The kitchen itself features an extensive range of storage cupboards in attractive light blue finish, contrasting with dark granite worktops and large central island. There is a fireplace recess incorporating an Aga, built-in oven and gas hob, further wood block herringbone flooring and bay window to the front with fitted seat. From the initial reception area is a rear hallway which gives access a large utility room and separate ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen links to a more recent modern addition which creates another lovely reception/family room with glazing on two sides giving lovely views over surrounding gardens. This space incorporates a shower room and useful pantry cupboard with further door to an inner courtyard which leads onto a fully enclosed indoor swimming pool which contains a 10 metre resistance pool with glazing along one side looking over the garden and opening up to outside.

On the first floor, a lovely central landing has sash window looking out to the front and incorporates space for a study area if required. The landing gives access to 6 generously proportioned bedrooms and well appointed family bathroom. Guest bedroom 2 has its own en suite shower room incorporating a 4-piece suite with separate bath and shower cubicle. The master suite really is a quite impressive space with large double bedroom featuring a bay window to the front and hallway leading to a large dressing area incorporating wardrobes along one wall, free-standing bath and twin wash hand basins, this being in addition to a fully enclosed shower room with 3-piece suite.

OUTSIDE, the property sits within about 5 acres in total with an entrance driveway from the road, sweeping around gardens and large mature tree leading to an enclosed parking area with space for numerous vehicles.
