Description

The Bears is situated in Old Mead Lane, an immaculate private road maintained by a residents committee and is situated close to the villages of Henham and Elsenham. Elsenham has a small parade of shops and a mainline station with services to London and Cambridge.The properties along the lane are all individual and over time owners have invested money improving their properties and have created an excellent residential address. The Bears was built for the present owners about twenty five years ago in a period style, brick and block under an attractive tiled roof with a double garage in a similar style. This is a family house with excellent accommodation and a somewhat open plan design on the ground floor. There is a generous hall, cloakroom, a sitting room/study at the front of the house and a drawing room which opens out to the kitchen/dining room which has a good range of quality appliances and a well-equipped utility room. A curved wall divides the kitchen from the family room which has a most impressive central circular wood burning stove. On the first floor, there is an impressive master bedroom suite with a vaulted room and en suite, there are four further en suite bedrooms. All rooms have lovely views, mainly to the rear over the very fine garden.

Outside, to the front there is a generous parking area and a double garage and brick retaining walls. To the rear, there are two principal terraces, one immediately behind the house and a circular one beside an established oak tree, a pond with a small rill and at the far end of the garden, a summer house, greenhouse and vegetable garden with raised beds and a log store. There is a well with a pump which provides water for the garden.
