Description

A superb setting This perfect family home is situated in the particularly desirable village of Thorpe-le-Soken, an area which offers excellent amenities as well as great links and proximity to towns within the region. Thorpe-le-Soken has provided the ideal location for the current owners to raise their family, and has been an excellent community for them. The property is ideally situated for schools with Rolph Church of England primary school and Tendring Technology College within easy walking distance. In addition, there are a number of comprehensive and independent secondary and primary schools in the area.The village has a number of pubs and eateries as well as shops including a small supermarket, hairdressers, deli and bespoke jewellers. The doctors' surgery and a pharmacy are also in the centre of Thorpe.

On the outskirts of the village is the award winning Lifehouse Spa and Hotel where local residents can enjoy annual or monthly membership entitling them to full use of the indoor pool, gym, steam room, sauna etc. Thorpe-le-Soken has its own railway station with 25 trains per day departing to London Liverpool Street. Nearby towns include Frinton-on-Sea with its lovely beaches and excellent shopping only 10 minutes drive from the property, as well as Colchester and Ipswich approximately a 25 minute drive

A grand entrance Upon arriving at the property, you are greeted by the same charm that can be found throughout with large box sash windows beautifully accented by Wisteria that trails the facade of the property. The front door opens to reveal a spacious entrance hallway with a wide staircase that winds up to the first floor. During the owners' forty years at the property they have found their home has been able to evolve along with their family, altering the house to cater to their changing needs, finding that many of the rooms are entirely multi-functional.

Rooms with A view The kitchen/breakfast room truly is the heart of the home for these owners, using it as a space for cooking, dining, entertaining and more generally as a living space. The décor is accented by Italian floor tiles and bespoke English Golden Oak units with black marble work surfaces. Perhaps the most enjoyable features are the windows, offering a view into the picture perfect garden from both the kitchen and dining areas. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room, offering an additional sink and storage space, as well as an extremely useful pantry with marble shelving. There is also a large cloakroom. Between the kitchen and utility room is an external door, allowing for easy access to the garden; perfect for outdoor dining.

The residence also boasts a more formal dining room with a large sash window to the front and French doors to the side leading out to the garden. This room is ideally suited for dining year-round, catering to a cosy winter feel as well as being beautiful in the summer with the doors being flung open to invite the outdoors in.

The expansive sitting room is separated into two distinct seating areas, divided by an interior archway. Large double aspect sash windows, plus French windows leading to the patio ensure that the room is always bathed in light. The room is accessible from both the entrance hall and the kitchen and allows access to the extension.

Family values The extension dates back to the 1950's and was added by a former owner, the local doctor, to provide a space to create an at home surgery. This now serves as a study and family room, both of which feature patio doors leading out to the garden. The current owners refer to this as their annexe space and have found this has served excellently as a downstairs bedroom and additional living space; ideal for multi-generational living to give relatives additional privacy. Within the grounds of the property is a double garage with rooms above offering yet more storage should you need it or further multi-functional space.

The first floor of the property accommodates all four bedrooms, including the sumptuous master suite. The master bedroom is a particularly large space and offers a dressing room, in addition to an en-suite shower room. All bedrooms comfortably cater to a double bed, and two offer built in wardrobe space. Furthermore, on this floor is a stylish family bathroom, with a free-standing bath, as well as a capacious walk-in shower. There is also access from the landing to a separate W/C.

A corner of paradise... The residence is situated on a plot of 0.75 acres, allowing for an expansive garden and plenty of lawn space. The garden offers a number of distinct areas, including a patio area, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. Additionally, the garden features a charming enclosed area, surrounded in part by trees, and partially by a wisteria draped brick wall. Situated within the grounds is a delightful pond, framed by reeds, trees and shrubs nestled within a rockery. The garden has been an absolute delight for the owners, cultivating it to become somewhat of a haven with well-established trees, shrubbery and bedding. They tell us how much they enjoy both the privacy and the space offered, and that they can always find a spot of sunshine to enjoy.
