**guide price GBP600,000 GBP625,000** Superior Homes by Boydens are excited to bring to the market this period family home situated on the popular Maldon Road, within close distance of Colchester town centre and a short walk to Hamilton primary school. The property has an abundance of period features and offers well proportioned rooms on a generous sized plot.
The property is accessed through a storm porch with original part tiled walls leading to the front door. The entrance hall is spacious with exposed, original timber flooring and stairs leading to the first floor. To the left is a well proportioned front reception room with an ornate open fireplace and bay window to the front aspect. The dining room is accessed from the hallway with rear facing sash window, original exposed wooden floorboards and central fireplace (currently blocked). The breakfast room offers two sash windows to the side aspect, exposed timber flooring and original cooking range. There is also access to the downstairs cloakroom with low level WC and ornate wash handbasin – this room could be configured to incorporate a laundry/utility space. The kitchen is accessed from the breakfast room; it has matching base and eye level units with inset sink, gas hob with electric and gas ovens, gas floor mounted boiler and French doors leading into the rear garden. The current owner has considered reconfiguring the breakfast room and kitchen to create a large open plan family space and it is certainly possible to change and/or extend the layout.
On the first floor there are four potential bedrooms; three doubles with differing period features, including ornate fireplaces, picture rails, bay window and exposed timber flooring, and a fourth smaller room which could be used as a nursery, office or dressing room. Additionally, on the first floor, is a bathroom with an electric shower and also a separate shower room which could be made into an en suite for one of the double bedrooms.
The living area has been extended into the loft space; this has created a large room with a Velux balcony dormer style window, eaves storage and wardrobe space and this potential bedroom is currently being used as a gym. The second room on this level is a long, narrow room with two Velux windows and also offers extensive storage space. Whilst it is currently an office, it could also be used as a bedroom.
Externally, steps lead from the pavement to the front door with the front garden mainly laid to lawn. A gate to the side gives access to the rear garden which has many mature trees and shrubs and also has areas laid to lawn. At the end of the garden there is a substantial garden room built to a high standard which could be used as a hobby space/home office/gym. This room has heating and electricity with access to the internet via a powerline adapter.
Maldon Road is situated within easy reach of the town centre and many local amenities, including: The up market Crouch Street shopping parade with its independent clothes and antique shops, a coffee shop, delicatessen, hairdressers, a newsagent, pharmacy, public houses, and a Tesco Express. Just beyond is the High Street and Colchester Town railway station, offering services to the coast and to the primary Colchester North station which serves London's Liverpool Street. There are good road links via the Spring Lane Junction 27 on to the A12 for Chelmsford/M25 and A120 to Stansted/M11, and northwards to Ipswich for the A14 Felixstowe/The Midlands connections.
