Are you house hunting in and around the Maldon area?
Our Property of the Week feature highlights homes currently on the market with award-winning estate agent and Maldon Nub News exclusive property sponsor Temme English.
This week, we are featuring this stunning four-bedroom detached home, which enjoys a secluded plot in the lovely village of Ardleigh, on the northern outskirts of Colchester.
4-bedroom detached home on John De Bois Hill, Ardleigh, Colchester - £700,000
This delightful chain-free double-fronted period property is the perfect home for entertaining - from pool parties in the summer to cosy meals around either of the open fireplaces during the cooler months.
The house flows into the garden and leads you to the swimming pool area, which has been specifically designed to have a Mediterranean feel - who needs to book a holiday?
The house offers a wealth of character and space, enjoying two large reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and a handy utility room on the ground floor.
The first floor is home to the family bathroom and the four bedrooms, three of which are impressive doubles, and the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room.
The large rear garden has well-stocked borders and a number of fruit trees, as well as two outbuildings. There is also a private side garden that makes a perfect cottage kitchen garden. There are a number of raised beds and a greenhouse.
The village offers good access to Colchester and Manningtree mainline stations. The A12 is also within easy distance.
The village has an excellent pre-school nursery and primary school, and there are also several pubs in the village.
