Property Summary

Ideal for a growing family, this well-appointed property with an open-plan ground floor is located on a quiet cul-de-sac backing onto open countryside, with all the amenities of Essex’s county town less than two miles away.

Approximately 700m from an outstanding secondary school, approximately 20 miles from Stansted Airport and with central London approximately 40 minutes away from the nearest station, this is a home which neatly combines some of the benefits of country living with all the convenience of an urban setting. The property is also in the catchment area for Newlands Spring primary school, which has been rated "outstanding" by Ofsted.

Magwitch Close is mostly made up of detached homes on the north side of Chelmsford. Although adjacent to open countryside, the playing fields at St Andrew’s Park are also nearby while local amenities include a Morrison’s superstore just over a kilometre away as well as a Tesco Express, a post office, a pharmacy, a dry cleaners, a hairdressers and a couple of takeaways on nearby Broomfield Road. The city centre is approximately mile and half from the house, offering everything you would expect, including the High Chelmer and Meadows Shopping Centres, the Riverside Retail Park, a cinema and an excellent selection of high street chain stores, bars and restaurants. London’s Liverpool Street station is between 35 to 40 minutes away from Chelmsford by train while, for those travelling further afield, London Stansted is approximately an 18-mile drive by car. Schools close to Magwitch Close include Columbus School and College, rated as outstanding by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2017.

Separated from the road by a block-paved drive offering off-road parking for at least two cars, the front garden also includes a blossom tree, a wall-side flower bed and a small grassed area. Access to the garage - large enough for a couple of motorcycles - is via an up-and-over door, with a second door leading to a store room which is attached to the utility which then leads on into the kitchen. However, the main access to the house is via the covered front door, which opens onto a reception hall. To the rear of the house, the lawned garden is surrounded by head-high timber fence panels and includes a flagstone patio and separate sun terrace. Bi-folding doors open onto the patio, offering an additional sense of space in the warmer summer months.

On entering the property, internal doors from the reception hall lead into the lounge, the eye-catching downstairs WC, and an office currently used as a playroom. However, the sense of space lent to the home by the open-plan design on the ground floor is immediately evident on entering the large, airy lounge, connected via wide arches to both the dining room and the kitchen beyond.

Currently decorated in a vibrant Mediterranean blue, the main living room includes stripped-wood floors and fittings for a substantial, wall-mounted, flat-screen TV and speakers fitted in the ceiling. A large window overlooks the front of the property while the bi-folding doors to the rear let in plenty of light. The dining area is tiled, also with a window overlooking the rear garden, with the modern, fitted kitchen beyond.

Features in the kitchen include a corian preparation island surrounded on three sides by matching worktops separating base and wall units offering ample storage and incorporating separate built in fridge and freezer. The room is also equipped with a built in eye-level Neff electric oven and grill, four-ring gas hob with fittings for extractor above and a composite, built in microwave, built in dishwasher and a stainless steel sink with rinsing bowl and drainer beneath a window overlooking the rear garden. Lighting is provided by recessed, ceiling-mounted LED spotlights while a glass-panel door leads to the utility room, which also includes an external door opening onto the rear garden. The rear of the property overlooks fields.

The stairs from the reception hall lead to the first-floor landing where internal doors lead to the master bedroom - with integral wardrobe and en suite shower room – and three further double bedrooms, all fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators. The house bathroom can also be found on the first floor and is fitted with a dual-flush WC with concealed cistern; a sink with double-doored storage cupboard beneath; a mirrored wall-mounted medicine cabinet; and a panel bath with shower attachment and glass splash screen.

Although fitted with some under-floor heating in the hallway, downstairs WC, kitchen / diner, utility room and upstairs bathroom. The property also benefits from double glazing and a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with thermostat and separate zoned time and temperature controls.
