This detached country home is in a spectacular setting with views across the countrysdide and stands just outside Belchamp Walter.

It has four bedrooms, a drawing room and sitting room, both overlooking the garden, plus a conservatory accross the back of the house and a kitchen/breakfast room which has been recently refitted.

There is a downstairs fourth bedroom with en suite facilities with three bedrooms upstairs and family bathroom and cloakroom.

The property has period connections and is rendered externally with weather-boarded elevations and has double glazed windows under a mellow clay pantiled roof. It is well presented throughout.

The reception hall is good sized with staircase to the first floor and features a delightful porthole window.

The drawing room, 20ft 3in x 16ft 9ins, is an attractive room with an arched brick fireplace and chimney breast and inset cast iron multi-fuel burner. Glazed doors lead to the large Amdega conservatory 19ft 6ins x 9ft 9ins which has windows all round, under floor heating and superbe ceramic tiles.

The kitchen/breakfast room measures 12ft 3ins x 12ft 3ins and has been re-fitted with an attractive Shaker style kitchen. This is a bright room with casement windows to the front and side and again offers excellent views over the countryside. There is an oil fired Rayburn range and a sealed brick block floor.

Outside there is around 0.3acres of garden and as the property stands alone on high ground there are spectacular views of some of the finest Essex countryside.

There is little traffic in the lane to the front and the mature gardens are beautifully laid out with terraces, lawns, trees and shrubs, with many seating areas to enjoy the serenity of the spot.

There is a substantial timber barn next to the house measuring 28ft 6ins x 18ft 6ins which was built in recent years. It has a mezzanine floor at one end which could provide two storey space and power and light with two windows to the side. There is also a double cart lodge, also with light and power plus a timber shed.

Central heating and hot water are provided by an oil fired boiler and drainage is to a private septic tank.

One feature of this charming property is that the water supply is from its own well with the water filtered and screened.

Belchamp Walter is one of the prettiest villages in the region with a charming crossroads, duck pond and lovely old cottages. It is near to Sudbury which has an excellent range of shops, schools and recreational facilities plus the station offering connecting trains to London at Marks Tey.
