Property Description

Guide Price £550,000 - £575,000 - Quote Ref: DP0213 when requesting further details of this unique and fantastic opportunity to purchase this beautifully presented slice of Halstead history. Bluebridge Coach House is a Grade II listed three-bedroom property with delightful gardens and character and modern living combined positioned on the outskirts of Halstead.

This property dates back to the 1600’s and has a life that is believed to have started with the famous John Morley who was owner of Bluebridge House and the Coach House was known to be part of the estate and now is its own separate dwelling with ideal living accommodation for a family looking to settle in the area. The property is approached from Colchester Road through two brick columns into the shingle driveway. The entrance to the property is effectively at the rear of the home through the private gates that lead to the rear garden and entrance door. The entrance door is a six glazed panel door with a 3-pane light over that leads into the entrance hallway. The entrance hall has an exposed wood floor that leads round with doors leading to the kitchen/dining room, the sitting room and the downstairs cloakroom and has stairs rising to the first floor. The first room to be amazed by is the kitchen and dining room, visible from the hallway through the strengthened glass panel this is a great entertaining space. The kitchen itself has been designed with all appliances and worksurfaces in close proximity to each other for ease of use. An impressive Magnet kitchen with floor to ceiling units along one wall to include a wood worksurface, the Samsung double oven and Baumatic microwave all built in and further openings for storage and presentation of items. There is an enviable central island with quartz worktops and the induction hob with extractor hood over, a sink with a carved-out drainer within the quartz, space for the dishwasher beneath and a mass of storage and pan drawers as well. There is a third set of units with a solid wood worksurface ideal for the coffee maker. As the room has an L-shape to it there is ample space for the dining table all set on a ceramic tiled floor. The sitting room is a fantastic room with French doors leading out to the patio letting plenty of light in and a leaded light window overlooks the front aspects, there is a gas real flame fire to one corner of the room and visible character beams. To complete the ground floor is the cloakroom with its Savoy hand wash basin and separate low level flush wc, heated towel rail and sliding window. 

Stairs rise to the first-floor landing where doorways lead to the first two bedrooms and the family bathroom and the landing itself is big enough if study space is needed. The principle bedroom is a large double room with windows looking over three aspects of the home, so a really light room with two sets of built in wardrobes and visible exposed beams. Bedroom Two again is an impressive double room with a vaulted ceiling and double aspect windows to the front and rear. A set of built in wardrobes and two radiators, this room has space for an office as well if needed. The bathroom sits centrally in the property and has a four piece suite with a claw foot freestanding bath, a corner shower, low level flush wc and a hand wash basin all on a exposed wood floor and with a leaded light window to the front.

On the top floor there is another landing with built in storage and a door leading to the third of the double bedrooms. This makes a great guest suite, a vaulted ceiling double bedroom with exposed beams and views over the manicured garden and also has an en-suite shower room which is really well fitted to include an enclosed shower, low level flush wc and a pedestal hand wash basin along with a heated towel rail, an eaves storage cupboard and built in low level eaves storage all on a tiled floor. 


To the front of the property there is a brick pillared entrance to the shingle driveway with parking for at least four cars with a grassed border and mature borders with a plethora of shrubs and plant coverage and a laurel hedge to make the boundary from the neighbouring property. Steps lead up to the raised pathway and through a set of ornate wrought iron gates, this leads you round to the rear of the property passed the oil tank and covered outside boiler. A sandstone patio pathway to the rear garden which is a gardener’s delight.  A full width patio makes a great space to entertain outside which gives you a front row seat to view the stunning garden. A central path leads and divides the lawn that previews the four planted corner beds with low level box hedging creating enclosures for the array of well-designed planting. A feature climbing rose oversees an arched pergola. To the rear of the garden is a shingled seating area next to the garden shed. The garden is very private with high level brick walls with creeping vegetation creating two boundaries and a newly installed willow weaved fence makes the northern boundary. As you stand at the back of the garden you get a full view of this amazing property with its Virginia creeper adding to the character of the home. There are outside taps and power sockets
