Hamilton Piers, Maldon?s Award-Winning local agent, are delighted to bring to the market this STUNNING SIX BEDROOM detached property situated in a idyllic rural location on a LOVELY 3/4 ACRE PLOT.
The property also has PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED (14/01117/HOUSE) for a significant Master Dwelling / Annex.
During the current vendors ownership the property has been EXTENDED AND HEAVILY REFURBISHED TO AN EXTREMELY HIGH STANDARD, creating a plethora of stylish accommodation containing a unique blend of contemporary finishes with more traditional features. The vendors have taken this property from it's humble beginnings as a traditional four bedroom cottage and have sympathetically expanded the living space to create a grand executive home, however, there is still plenty of room to expand as the property also currently benefits from PLANNING PERMISSION BEING GRANTED on a large side extension, essentially CREATING AN ADJOINED DWELLING, currently designated as a superior masters quarters this could also easily be re-purposed as a beautiful annex.
Of the ground floor accommodation a particular highlight is the AMAZING 40' x 20' SHAKER STYLE KITCHEN / DINER, boasting solid oak work surfaces throughout, a large l-shaped central island & breakfast bar with dual ceramic Butler sinks, all complimented by a top-of-the-line seven-oven AGA. This area is further enhanced thanks to its high arched ceilings with exposed wood beams and bi-fold doors to the entire external perimeter creating a superbly lit room with PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE REAR GARDEN. In this agents opinion this room provides an ideal communal space for even the largest of families or for hosting decadent parties.
The Kitchen is further complimented by the SPACIOUS 35' x 22' LOUNGE, with the vendors flair and imagination once again creating a brilliant contemporary space for the whole family. Acting as the centrepiece to the room is the LARGE, ATTRACTIVE MODERN FIREPLACE, effectively bisecting the room to create two spaces, one a luxurious and open living room with bi-fold doors to the rear garden, with the other taking on a more relaxed feel as a family sitting room. The vendors have also been sympathetic to the utilitarian nature of a busy executive home and have created several spaces specifically catering to a variety of the day to day practises that take place in a large family, with a beautiful, private room over the kitchen currently designated as an office, a boot room adjoined to the kitchen that is particularly useful should a new owner have large pets as well as a separate, fully stocked utility room.
All six bedrooms are of a good size with the Master and bedroom two benefiting from en-suites and the third bedroom gaining an adjoining playroom/dressing room. THE MASTER IN PARTICULAR IS ESPECIALLY NOTEWORTHY, not least because of its generous 22' x 17' size benefiting from bi-fold doors out to a 15' oak balcony with views of the surrounding countryside, but also for its large marble arch tiled en-suite with freestanding bath, walk-in shower and dual marble washbasins, as well as 14' 2" His & Hers dressing room.
The property is NOT FOUND WANTING EXTERNALLY either with the home benefiting from sizeable front, rear and side gardens. Most impressive of which is the REAR GARDEN MEASURING APPROXIMATELY 1700 SQUARE METERS, mostly laid to lawn with various outbuildings, the rear garden also BOASTS A 500 SQUARE METER PATIO in rainbow sandstone containing the 15 meter HEATED SWIMMING POOL as well as the 41' Pool house / gym with adjoining dressing & shower room. The front of the property provides gated access to a large shingled IN & OUT DRIVEWAY complimented by a DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE with OFFICE SPACE / STUDIO in the eaves, parking is further enhanced thanks to an additional shingled parking area located to the side of the home.
