4 Bedroom Detached Bungalow For Sale in Lodge Lane, Langham

4 3

Situated in the sought-after Stour Valley, just two miles from both Dedham, with its historic centre, independent shops and highly renowned restaurants, and Colchester, with its array of high street shops, amenities and mainline train station, this four bedroom property offers spacious and beautifully maintained accommodation in the heart of Constable Country.

STEP INSIDE Dating from 1928, with later extensions, this spacious family home is mainly laid out over one floor, with four double bedrooms and two generous bathrooms. The stunning kitchen, dining room and sitting room are all connected via large arches making the area feel open-plan and fantastically light and airy. The owner, who has lived here for nearly eight years, tells us what attracted her to the property. "There is so much space here, both inside and out and the open plan kitchen is a really great space for entertaining family and friends." The generous rooms are wonderfully bright and spacious with beautiful views of the garden which is bordered by mature woodland making it a perfectly tranquil place to unwind. The balcony, leading off a sunny attic room, offers fantastic views and is a wonderful spot for watching the sun go down at the end of a busy day. Otium Lodge really does live up to its name: 'Leisure time for enjoying relaxation and contemplation. 

SPACIOUS & WELCOMING Spacious and Welcoming Situated on a no-through road, the property is set well back from the lane where the electric iron gates open to reveal a large driveway with parking for ten or more cars and a double garage. "When we throw large parties the guests can park in the driveway as well as in our layby outside the gates." The front lawn is flanked with mature trees and dotted with shrubs and a large, double-width front door beckons you in. The reception hall and hallways are also luxuriously wide and bathed in light and reception rooms are situated to the left of the entrance hall. A stunning and impressively large sitting room stretches the whole depth of the property and is filled with sunlight all day long through a large window to the front and French doors to the rear. A pretty fireplace at its centre creates a wonderful focal point and contains a woodburner that can generate that cosy feeling at the flick of a switch. "We are so delighted with our new Optimist electric log burner as it is so quick and easy to heat up and is amazingly realistic, combining clever lighting and creating mist that looks like smoke."  

RELAXED SOCIALISING A large archway opens from the sitting room into the dining area, which in turn opens into the kitchen; creating a fantastic open-plan space for the whole family to enjoy. The dining area has a large window overlooking the garden and there is plenty of space around a large dining room table to seat at least a dozen diners. A breakfast bar divides the dining and food preparation areas and makes cooking and eating a really social affair. "It's great being able to chat with family and friends whilst cooking as they can sit around the table or on stools at the breakfast bar." A huge array of kitchen units are crafted out of mahogany, interspersed with wicker baskets, bevelled glass fronted cupboards and a built in wine rack which adds style and interest. A large utility room off the working end of the kitchen provides that extra storage a growing family needs. The four double bedrooms are all wonderfully light and spacious with garden views and ample built in wardrobes. The generous master bedroom is double aspect and its en-suite shower room is impressively spacious with an extra-large shower cubicle, a bath and two sinks. The family bathroom is also of generous proportions and an extra cloakroom is conveniently situated next to the guest bedroom.

A staircase takes you up from the sitting room to the cherry on the cake – a large attic room with French doors opening out into a generous balcony overlooking the garden and the woodland beyond. "I use the attic room as an office as it is such a peaceful place to work with great views of the garden." The balcony is perfectly orientated to catch the last sun of the day and the views of the woodland to one side and the spinney the other side are delightful. On the ground floor, French doors open from the sitting room onto the terrace where there is plenty of space for eating al-fresco and a large covered area to one side is the ideal spot to site the barbeque and drinks fridge.
 

STEP OUTSIDE "We have held many garden parties over the years, with a hundred or more guests and marquees on the lawn." The whole plot extends to towards an acre in size and a large lawn is bordered with mature trees and shrubs. A selection of sheds offer storage for garden machinery and tools and a pretty summer house, situated towards the end of the garden, offers a secluded place to unwind at the end of a busy day. With the main A12 trunk road and the bustling centre of Colchester only a stone's throw away it is hard to believe this perfectly tranquil countryside setting is so conveniently accessible.
