5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Colne Engaine, Colchester

5 3

A wonderfully appointed 4/5 bedroom detached chalet with flexible living accommodation extending to over 2600 sq.ft within grounds of around one third of an acre, benefiting from far reaching views over Colne Valley.

Set within grounds approaching one third of an acre sits Countess Cross Bungalow, an attractive detached chalet with far reaching views over Colne Valley. The property has been extended over the years to create flexible living of around 2600 sq.ft.

The owners have resided here for around 10 years and moved here from a busy seaside town. After searching tirelessly for a property that allowed them to create their new relaxed rural lifestyle while still not being too far away from a Traditional English Village that still had a buzz about it, they stumbled across Countess Cross. Situated just moments away from undisturbed countryside, days are spent on country walks with the two Labradors that have thoroughly enjoyed the fully enclosed garden. The addition of having a paddock next door and the surrounding views over the Colne Valley are the highlights of this area for the owners.

Since moving to the residence, the owners have improved the property a great deal. This includes the upgrading of the kitchen, which provides ample space to try out those culinary skills on the range stove or relax by the wood burner. The windows have been renewed along with updated bathroom suites.

The property is located on an elevated position which is approached via a driveway providing ample off road parking, this in turn leads to a detached garage which benefits from having power connected it.
The residence was originally built as a bungalow in the early 1960's and over the years has been extended to create accommodation over two levels. The chalet offers generous living space and the layout commands the ideal design to accommodate an annexe (stp).

The grounds of Countess Cross Bungalow are perfect for formal entertaining. Yet with a large lawned area providing an area for children to play and dogs to roam, the property is also perfect for informal gatherings.
