JUST OUTSIDE OF SAFFRON WALDEN, A SPACIOUS, DETACHED, SINGLE STOREY RESIDENCE WITH SCOPE FOR 4 BEDROOMS AND ENLARGEMENT. THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN WELL-LOOKED AFTER AND SITS ON A VERY LARGE PLOT, WHICH IS ALMOST PARKLAND IN FEEL, BUT OFFERS ENORMOUS PRIVACY. THERE IS PLENTY OF PARKING AND GARAGING AND THE PROPERTY MUST BE SEEN TO FULLY ENJOY AND APPRECIATE THE LOCATION.
Lovingly enjoyed for over thirty years, the present owner has looked after the property and enlarged it to provide good-sized accommodation, with a high degree of flexibility. One of the large reception rooms could be split into two bedrooms, thereby providing four bedrooms.

The gardens are a real feature of the property, with the majority facing south, and there is still scope to enlarge the property further.
