PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: A rarely available four-bedroom detached chalet-style property enjoying a private setting, hidden from view at the foot of a single access way, set back from Mersea Road. Offering walking-distance access to a range of facilities in Mersea Road, St John's primary school, the centre of the historic Roman town of Colchester, Colchester Town railway station and further benefitting from gated rear access providing a direct link to Campion Road, St George's primary school and Old Heath recreation ground. Offered to the market for the first time in over 50 years, the property is understood to date from the mid-1960s with further extension works undertaken by the current owners and in its present form, the property offers an accommodation schedule of approximately 1,485 sq ft. Whilst fair to suggest the property would benefit from a degree of modernisation/updating, it nonetheless provides an outstanding setting with ample scope to adapt, enhance and extend (subject to the necessary planning consents). Arranged via two ground-floor reception rooms and combining both ground-floor and first-floor bedrooms, the accommodation is afforded a wealth of natural light with a number of rooms enjoying views across either the front or rear gardens. Retaining many of the hallmarks of a property of this ilk and era including a traditionally styled fitted kitchen with serving hatch, open tread staircase and Parkray stove. Set within a total plot size of approximately 0.18 acres, the property further benefits from a detached garage with personnel door to side, further area of private parking to the front of the property and established, well-screened mature gardens with hedge line border and gated rear access.
