Guide price: GBP285,000 to GBP300,000: A truly superb Grade II listed, two bedroom, duplex home set in the much sought after village of West Bergholt to the north of Colchester. Originally part of a former brewery, the property was sympathetically converted in approximately 1999; and presents modern living with exposed timbers and beams.
The present owners have been in residence around twenty years, and in that time, have carried out a modernisation programme to a high standard, including redecoration; the installation of fibre broadband; Fischer independent electric radiators and LED dimmable lighting; an open plan kitchen; an upgrade to the bathroom/shower rooms, and many other features too numerous to list.
As previously mentioned, the property is set out over two floors with the first comprising an entrance lobby; inner hall; 21' living/dining room; open plan fitted kitchen; shower room/WC, and bedroom two. The top floor has a sizeable landing with a master bedroom (with fitted wardrobes); office, and well appointed bathroom/WC/sauna shower. Outside, there is allocated parking and visitor parking.
An appointment to view this residence should be made at your earliest convenience to avoid genuine disappointment.
West Bergholt has long been considered one of Colchester's most desirable villages due to its excellent transportation links to the A12, and North Station with its direct railway services to London.
