Property Description

GENERAL DESCRIPTION A detached and extended period Farm house, that has been sympathetically upgraded over the years with gas radiator heating and UPVC windows (mostly sash style), yet retaining many original features and charm, combining country living with modern comforts. The property sits on a good sized plot, adjacent to a Racehorse Stud Farm and fields to one flank, proving a tranquil and pleasant outlook, and is ideal for those who like access to the countryside, yet not be too remote.
To the front is a large courtyard and timber barns, that have potential to be upgraded or converted into workshop, garage , or other subject to any planning requirements.
The property has a Farm House style kitchen, separate dining room with inglenook fireplace, cloakroom wc, study/ utility room and a spacious light and airy lounge with inglenook fireplace. Upstairs are three double bedrooms (one bedroom has been converted from two original bedrooms). The master bedroom has fantastic views across the country side and paddocks, as well as benefitting from an en-suite bathroom. Additionally there is a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower.
The location provides the peace and tranquility of a country residence, yet is on the periphery of a residential estate, therefore one can walk to the local shops or public houses.
Bicknacre is only a 10 minute drive to Chelmsford City with its major shopping and leisure facilities, as well as a main line rail link to London Liverpool Street.
