Offered for sale for the first time in over 20 years this established and well presented detached family home sits back from the road behind a secure gated entrance in private and secluded grounds of over 9.5 acres with formal gardens, paddock and woodland. Its enviable and highly sought after position is within easy reach of the renowned Elm Green Preparatory School. The property currently provides over 2800 sq. foot of living accommodation which commences with an impressive reception hall. On the ground floor there is a ground floor cloakroom, large and separate living and drawing rooms and a spacious conservatory located centrally at the rear of the house. The spacious kitchen/diner features granite worktops, integrated appliances and extensive units and leads into a large utility room and onto a boot room and boiler room. On the first floor there is a generous landing, five bedrooms and two bathrooms with the principal bedroom suite enjoying southerly views across the rear gardens and woodland beyond and featuring a walk in wardrobe and spacious en-suite.
The property is accessed through remote electronic security gates with intercom system and a shingle driveway provides extensive parking and leads to the detached double garage. The drive extends to the rear of the property via a wooden gate and leads down to a modern stable block with 3 stables, tack room and wc. The gardens to the immediate rear of the property feature a raised patio with enclosed and covered hot tub to the side of the main house. Steps then lead down to the extensive lawned gardens with numerous mature trees and shrubs. To the right hand boundary there is a fully walled pool area with a large heated swimming pool and summer house. The gardens continue down into paddock with an enclosed tennis court and lead onto into extensive woodland beyond. The property has been previously extended but we feel lends itself to further extension or redevelopment (subject to usual permissions being granted).
The property sits in one of the most desirable and rarely available locations in the village of Little Baddow which enjoys an elevated position between Danbury to the south and the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation Canal to the north. Little Baddow & Danbury are famous for their National Trust and Essex Wildlife Trust Protected woodlands and are a haven for ramblers, dog walkers, runners and cyclists with many areas of outstanding beauty. Schooling in the area includes highly regarded private schooling at preparatory schools of Elm Green in the village itself and Heathcote in Danbury. Danbury offers a range of local amenities which include a good range of village stores, library, dentists, public houses, doctors surgery plus a sports and leisure centre. The city of Chelmsford offers extensive shopping, recreational and leisure facilities as well as rail services to London Liverpool Street and is located just 6 miles to the west and can be easily reached via car or by utilising the nearby Sandon Park & Ride Bus service which provides frequent services into the City centre and station.
