Farthings is a magnificent detached property, with six bedrooms and more than 5,500 square feet of luxury accommodation, located in the small village of Howe Green, within easy reach of Chelmsford. The property boasts extensive living accommodation and stunning southfacing gardens, which include a large pool house and a beautiful outdoor heated swimming pool.

The ground floor accommodation provides a wealth of flexible living spaces, including the 27ft reception room, with its fireplace and bi-fold doors opening onto the rear gardens. There is also a cosy snug and a formal dining room, while the heart of the home is the impressive 35ft open-plan kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen is well equipped with maple kitchen units, marble worktops and integrated appliances, while the entire back wall opens up via bi-fold doors, to provide access to the southfacing rear sun terrace.

There are six generous bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors, all of which have en suite shower rooms or bathrooms. The luxurious master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling,

the gardens and opening onto a balcony. The suite also has a dressing area and a large en suite bathroom, currently unfinished. The remaining bedrooms are all generous doubles, with fitted wardrobes or dressing rooms, and en suite bathrooms, while a study area is located on a mezzanine level above the master bedroom.

The property is approached via a paved driveway and expansive parking area with access to the triple garage. To the rear, beautiful landscaped, peaceful and serene, south facing gardens begin from patios and formal lawn and lead to an inviting all season outdoor swimming pool. Accessed via a swim way from a wealth of entertaining space, the heated leisure complex will enable winter swimming in warmth and comfort and is currently unfinished. The lower lawn leads via waterfalls and streams to a beautiful pond. Meandering paved and stone pathways run round the garden, which is surrounded by mature trees and overlooks open fields beyond.

The property is located in the small village of Howe Green, just outside the sought-after and historic Essex county town of Chelmsford. Chelmsford has a vibrant and bustling centre, with plenty of historic architecture.
