4 Bedroom Detached House for sale in Highwood Road, Edney Common, Chelmsford
VICTORIAN - Offering a superb combination of period charm and country living, 'Red House' is a fine detached home, set on a south-facing plot and situated within easy reach of many local amenities and transport links, ideal for those seeking a home in the countryside yet with a convenient commute.
Presented superbly throughout in a modern traditional style, this four bedroom character home offers balanced accommodation with excellent symmetry, commencing with a large central hallway connecting to; a sizeable living room; a further sitting room/reception room; and open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear with French doors to the rear garden. A utility room gives access to a cloakroom/wc.
First floor accommodation provides four double bedrooms and a family bathroom, with each room enjoying a great degree of natural light from the large sash windows, all of which are painted externally in an appealing heritage green.
This home has been extended greatly from the original Victorian 'two up, two down', with a rear extension in more recent times effectively doubling the living space. In addition, the current owners obtained planning permission (now lapsed) to extend the property by another circa 1,300ft2, which future owners may seek to reinstate to create a home of approaching 3,000ft2. Plans are shown, and available in full upon request.
Externally, a sizeable, gated driveway provides ample off street parking, and to the rear, a wonderful garden faces south, with open meadowland to the side and an open aspect to the rear. Superb countryside walks are on the doorstep - with Writtle Deer Park nearby - yet road and rail connections are easily accessible by car, including A414 to M11 and Chelmsford; Chelmsford City and Ingatestone mainline railway stations, as well as the Central Line terminal at Epping.
