3 Castle Lane is a substantial attached Edwardian village property enjoying a superb location within the historic core of this sought after North Essex village.
The property was believed to be constructed in 1912 and benefits from a wealth of features associated with this era to include high ceilings, open fireplaces, deep moulded skirting boards, picture rails and large windows making for beautifully light accommodation.
A panelled door with circular glazed panel leads to a hexagonal entrance hall which has Karndean flooring and attractive panelled doors leading off.
The principal reception room runs the entire depth of the property and benefits from a dual aspect giving views to the lane and the attractive rear gardens and terrace with access via French doors. There is a particularly fine detailed oak fire surround and carved detailed framework to the fireplace which provides a fantastic focal point. This room is ideal for large scale family entertaining as it directly accesses the terrace via the aforementioned French doors.
The dining room is situated to the front elevation of the property and again benefits from large glazed apertures which overlook the front garden and the lane and provides perfect formal entertaining space. There is an attractive fireplace with carved wooden surround and inset granite hearth within which is set a wood burning stove.
The kitchen/breakfast room is situated to the rear of the property and benefits from a dual aspect and is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted painted solid oak units which have attractive granite work surfaces and a range of integral appliances to include an 'AEG' combination oven, microwave, a five ring 'AEG' gas hob mounted within a central island unit with an extractor hood over and an 'AEG' dishwasher.
There are display units and a large bay window which could double as a seat if required and there is a glazed Velux roof light making for stunningly bright informal entertaining space.
There are views to the rear garden and terrace and a flush door gives access to the cellar. A glazed stable door gives access to a utility room which has a tiled floor and door to the rear garden, beyond which is a well appointed cloakroom.
The stairs rise to the first floor from the reception hall and have original oak newell posts and attractive panelling to the sides. The first floor is equally appealing with the master bedroom having a dual aspect and benefiting from stunning roofline village views, deep moulded skirting boards, picture rails and a range of built-in wardrobes with extensive storage.
The second bedroom is situated to the front of the property and has a dual aspect giving magnificent views of the parish church. These two bedrooms are served by a lavishly appointed family bath/shower room with a free standing roll top bath, large corner shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and matching w.c. There is oak effect flooring and a bay window gives views to the village.
The first floor is completed by an irregularly shaped room which the current owners utilise as a dressing room and it has a large louvre fronted storage cupboard. This room could readily be used as a study if required.
The stairs then rise to the second floor to a galleried landing with a large Velux roof light and there are two spacious double bedrooms, both of which benefit from a range of built-in wardrobes and take in fine views to the grounds and village. A family bathroom serves both these bedrooms and is fitted with a matching white suite with a large corner bath, pedestal wash hand basin and w.c.
The property is approached via an extensive pavioured drive which is flanked by attractive mellow red brick walling on both sides. The drive leads to a detached four car garage with electric up and over door and is equipped with power and light.
The front gardens are a true delight and comprise expanses of lawn flanked by densely stocked herbaceous borders that provide year round interest and colour.
A pollarded beech tree provides shade and a focal point. Steps rise from the drive to an attractive wrought iron gate giving access to the rear.
To the side of the property are regularly arranged sleeper beds stocked with box hedging and evergreen shrubs which flank an attractive path and gives access to the rear.
The rear gardens are delightful and provide a high degree of privacy and have been laid out with entertaining in mind. Immediately to the rear of the house is a charming pergola which covers an extensive decked entertaining terrace which can be accessed from the principal reception room. Adjacent to the decking is a large York stone terrace with further raised beds and a particularly attractive split level koi pond providing a focal point.
There is a purpose built greenhouse adjacent to the trellis. A pretty lattice screen and rose arch leads to a large expanse of lawn which has mature shrubs and borders on all sides with a further raised stone terrace providing a delightful entertaining area which is positioned to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sun and has a summerhouse to one side. Beyond the terrace is a path leading to a vegetable garden and storage shed.
