Wash Farm is an especially practical family home enjoying a favourable location on the periphery of this well served and sought after North Essex village whilst enjoying a private location with stunning views to the Colne Valley at the rear.
The property is entered via a stable door with bullseye glass to a large rear hall/utility room which has a tiled floor and an extensive range of cupboards. The principal reception room is situated on the Southerly aspect of the building and benefits from a triple aspect taking in views to the front and rear gardens and the Colne Valley and has a feature red brick fireplace with tiled hearth and patio doors leading to the rear garden and terrace.
The kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of the house and is centrally situated with a dual aspect with the aforementioned views to the Colne Valley and the front gardens. It is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and has an oil fired 'Rayburn' cooking range, 'Zanussi' oven, grill and hob with extractor hood over and a 1 ½ bowl sink. It is tiled with an oak topped breakfast bar, beyond which is the breakfast room which has glazed doors leading to the sitting room and a feature arch through to the family room/snug. This is a particularly light room with a large window to the front elevation overlooking the gardens and there is a corner mounted log burner set on a raised tiled plinth.
To the front elevation of the property is a spacious study which overlooks the front garden and there is an inner hall with stairs rising to the first floor. The rear hall/utility room gives access to a large walk-in pantry via a panelled door and there is a further panelled door leading to a cloakroom and larder storage cupboard.
The first floor is equally practical and spacious and has a winding staircase leading to a large landing.
The principal suite is situated on the South elevation of the property and has a dual aspect allowing it to benefit from views to the grounds and the rolling countryside and Colne Valley in the distance. It is a spacious room with down lighters to the ceiling and a panelled door leading to a well appointed and recently refurbished en-suite bath/shower room which is fully tiled having an oversized shower cubicle, oval ended bath and matching white suite.
There are four further bedrooms, two being situated to the rear of the property and two to the front, all of which are of a generous size and these are served by a well appointed family bathroom which is tiled to dado height and has a matching white suite.
The property is approached via a five bar gate from Queen Street which leads to an extensive drive with pavioured edgings and mature beech hedging to the South side beyond which is an extensive parking and turning area. The front gardens are an absolute delight and have been professionally landscaped and comprise large expanses of lawn which are flanked by raised herbaceous borders which boast a variety of shrubs and plants that provide year round interest and colour. Of note are three impressive copper beech trees to the front elevation which provide shelter.
Immediately to the front of the house are two large sandstone terraces, between which are low maintenance gravel areas and a circular border. To the side of the property is a further large area of garden which has two mature cherry trees, large expanses of lawn and densely stocked herbaceous borders on either side with a variety of specimen trees and shrubs. To the rear of this expanse of lawn are further fruit trees and a monkey puzzle tree which provides a focal point to the rear hedge. To the rear of the house is an enclosed garden which can be accessed via the sitting room from the patio doors which has beech hedging to its rear boundary and further herbaceous borders to the sides. There is a substantial storage building to the rear of the property.
Beyond the beech hedge is a post and rail paddock providing home to the photo voltaic panels for the house and there are a number of fruit trees, raised vegetable beds and areas of lawn. This is a perfect and private family entertaining area beyond which are stunning views across open farmland toward the Colne Valley. This paddock is ideal for anyone wishing to keep chickens or indulge in other rural hobbies.
Agents Notes There would be ample space to erect a cart lodge/garage (subject to planning). The property benefits from photo voltaic panels which provide income on the high level feed in tariff of approximately £1800.00 per annum.
