This charming detached chalet bungalow is on the edge of Epping Forest in a rural location, nestling in the midst of grounds surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, providing privacy and security. It is approached via a wide, block paved driveway flanked by shrub borders and a lawn opening onto a spacious frontage where you can park a number of vehicles. This leads to the detached, pitched roof double garage and the front entrance.

The impressive entrance hall has solid wood flooring that flows through to the family room, the lounge/diner and has access to the very useful ground floor shower room. There are doors to the impressive light and bright triple aspect lounge/diner with French doors leading to a patio. It is open plan to the tiled kitchen that includes a staircase to the first floor, white units housing a double oven, gas hob, American fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine as well as a door to the garden. Upstairs there are three bedrooms including two with dressing rooms and eaves storage, one also has an en-suite bathroom. Outside there is a wide terrace for al fresco dining and the rest of the garden is laid to lawn and surrounded by mature trees and shrub borders.

What the Owner says:

We have lived here for over 20 years and have thoroughly enjoyed everything about our house, particularly the wonderful location which is what attracted us in the first place. 15 years ago we extended what had been a bungalow to provide three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs which, not only provided us with additional accommodation, but also delightful views across the surrounding countryside. However we feel it is time for us to move nearer our family.

Although in a rural location, this house is not far from Loughton with its underground station on the Central Line, which means commuters can be in the City or West End within half an hour to 40 minutes and it is also not far from the M11 and the M25. Loughton has plenty of high street stores, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs and a wide variety of sporting activities including cricket, golf, tennis available plus Taekwondo, fencing, mounting biking and speedway. Good education facilities are provided with four nursery schools, Hereward Primary and Debden Park High School all rated Outstanding by Ofsted while the arts are catered for with the East 15 Acting School, the Loughton Music Academy and School of Dance, the Loughton Folk and Arts Clubs and the Loughton Operatic Society.

It is also only about four miles to Epping which includes delightful period properties lining the high street in a Conservation Area and is famous for its Monday market that has been in existence since the 13th century.
