In need of some gentle modernisation, this three-bedroomed semi-detached property lies in an enviable position allowing easy access into the heart of Dedham, Ardleigh and Colchester itself. Accommodation comprises two reception rooms, kitchen, cloakroom, three bedrooms and family bathroom. The property also benefits from off-road parking and gardens.
This double-fronted, semi-detached, family home is situated in an enviable position on the Ardleigh Road in Dedham. This absolute gem is eager to undergo a programme of modernisation and refurbishment by the next family who are lucky enough to call it 'Home'. The double-fronted aspect belies its semi-detached status, and has the look of a handsome detached Victorian house. From the front boundary a pathway, flanked either side by lawn and hedgerow, leads to the central entrance door. Once inside, the hallway balances the living accommodation to either side. Two equally sized reception rooms, each with fireplaces and pretty, sashed, bay windows await a refresh to become the new homeowners' areas for relaxation. The kitchen / breakfast room is situated to the rear of the property and, as it stands is an excellently sized room for food preparation and casual dining, however, given the new homeowners appetite for change, an extension (subject to correct permissions) could create a wonderful kitchen / family room with doors opening onto the rear garden. A cloakroom, off the rear lobby, completes the ground-floor accommodation. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, two of which benefit from their original cast-iron fireplaces, and a family bathroom. To the rear of the property is an extensive garden, which enjoys a plethora of mature trees and shrubs. A dedicated allotment area, perfect for those with one eye on The Good Life, resides at the end of the garden.
