The property is set on high ground on Newbridge Hill, and overlooks open views of rolling countryside to the west of Colchester and beyond. The property has been extended in recent years and is now 1,862 square feet providing plenty of space for a family home. The front covered porch area leads to the main entrance to the house, as well as separate entry to the office (currently used as a beauty room) which could be used as a fifth bedroom.
The dual aspect living room makes the most of the open views to the front and there are French doors leading out to a balcony. There are two feature radiators as well as a gas fireplace, and a section of the wall from the living room to the hall is glass, allowing the natural light through. The lounge is large enough to provide living and dining space if required.
The kitchen is open to the conservatory providing a light and open family space which makes the most of the mature garden. The kitchen has a range of wooden wall and base units, a fitted fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and there is a Rangemaster which is included in the sale. Off the kitchen is a utility room with wall and base units, a butler sink and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, with a half-glazed door leading to the rear garden.
Further accommodation includes four bedrooms (three are doubles) including the master bedroom which has its own en-suite shower room. The master bedroom has been fitted with wardrobes and units, and has immediate access to the rear garden and patio area.
The total ground measures 0.22 acres. At the front of the property there is a landscaped garden with a balcony from the living room making the most of the rolling countryside view to the West. The rear garden measuring 85 feet long, has also been landscaped and is home to a variety of flower beds and shrubs, a substantial area of lawn and a patio area large enough for a family sized table and chairs. There are steps up to the heated pool and the summer house, which is fenced off from the rest of the garden. There are also two outbuildings at the back of the office which are currently used for storage.
The village of West Bergholt is a popular commuter village to the west of Colchester and is only 10-minute car journey or 15-minute cycle ride to Colchester North station, where journey time to London Liverpool Street is around 50 minutes.
West Bergholt has a friendly village spirit and there are plenty of social clubs for the residents to choose from. There is a Squash Club nearby which offers its members access to tennis courts, a gymnasium and an indoor pool. West Bergholt’s facilities include a co-operative supermarket, pharmacy, post office and doctor’s surgery, along with various public houses and restaurants.
The property is within walking distance to the Ofsted rated ‘good’ local primary school, and the independent preparatory school, Holmwood House, is also within walking distance. West Bergholt is within catchment for Stanway Secondary School (also ‘good’) in Colchester and the property is close to the Colchester Royal Grammar School for Boys and Colchester Girls High School in Colchester.
Points to Note
The driveway is on an incline because of the raised position of the property. However, there is further access via the adjacent Whitehouse Lane to the rear of the right-hand boundary, and further parking or garaging could be created where the pool currently lies. The property has a modern Treatment Plant private sewerage system.
