Property Description

Quote Ref: DP0213 when requesting further details of this perfect three bedroom detached home set on half an acre on the edge of a quiet village in North Essex. Built in 2014, this property has character, space and offers an ideal lifestyle for keen gardeners looking to downsize or a small family looking for loads of garden for the kids to run around in.

Robins Rest is the perfect home for those looking for a rural lifestyle with farmland views and a half acre plot. Having parked on the driveway there are steps up to a storm porch that protect the solid oak front door that leads you through to the very welcoming hallway. A surprisingly large space with karndean flooring and oak doors leading to the sitting room, kitchen and downstairs bedroom and stairs rise up to the first floor. The first room to impress is the vast sitting room that runs from the front to the back of the property, a great room with a superb feature brick fireplace with a wood burner inset as a central focus, bi-fold doors lead out to the rear patio and a double-glazed window offers views over the front aspects. At the rear of the property is the stunning kitchen with granite work surfaces and texture wall and base units to include and integral dishwasher, a sunken sink and a feature electric three oven and double hob Aga with extractor over. This is all set on a tiled floor with a reinforced circular glass presentation layer focusing on the Victorian original well which is brick lined and has a depth of around 30ft. Another great feature of this kitchen are the corner bi-folding doors taking in the views and giving access to the patio. As an addition to the kitchen is the larder cupboard that creates space for a fridge/freezer and storage and also from the kitchen is a door to the utility room. The utility room has a base unit with a single sink and space and plumbing for the washing machine under and a water softener, there is a floor mounted Grant oil boiler, all set on a tiled floor. The final accommodation on the ground floor is the double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, ideal for ground floor living if needed, a very good-sized double room with views over the front aspects and built in overbed storage wardrobes.

Stairs from the hallway lead up to the first-floor landing where oak doors lead to the two bedrooms, study and the lavish bathroom. The principle bedroom is a vaulted impressive room with a feature balcony to enjoy those awesome views over the fields and built in wardrobes and a dressing table.  The other bedroom on this floor is a single room with a velux window and a door to the airing cupboard that houses the hot water pressure cylinder and the solar panel terminal for the hot water. The third room here is a study/office, not really big enough to be a bedroom but a great little space to shut yourself away to get on with work or have a read. The bathroom is a super room with a four piece suite to include a freestanding bath, a built in double shower, a Burlington sink and low level flush wc, all on a tiled floor.

Gardens and Grounds

To the front of the property there is a brick paved driveway that leads up to the side of the property and gives parking for about 6 cars, there is a side lawned area with a retaining brick wall with steps up to the front door. To the left side there is a gate leading to the rear of the property and to the right from the driveway it opens out to the rear garden. At the immediate rear of the property is a gorgeous sandstone patio with a feature oak framed gazebo with infrared heaters for relaxing on patio furniture. There is a filtered raised fishpond and then the garden opens up with 350ft of lawn with a grouping of fruit trees and conifers at the far end. There are amazing open views and central to the garden is a raised over ground swimming pool with a purpose-built decking. There is a wood store and a garden shed. This garden really is a gardeners dream or a child’s wish list playground. The plot in its entirety is half an acre.
