A substantial home occupying a private plot of 1.25 acres within walking distance of Ingatestone village centre. Set behind electric wrought iron gates, 'Longmeads' is beautifully positioned within the centre of the plot, backing countryside and offering far reaching views across the Wid valley.
Believed to have been built in the late-1930's, the property offers excellent family accommodation to include entrance hall, three reception rooms, conservatory, good size kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and ground floor cloakroom. The first floor enjoys four bedrooms - two with en-suite facilities - and a family bathroom.
The current owners have obtained Permitted Development drawings to substantially increase the size of the property, which provides two additional reception rooms, a larger kitchen/breakfast room, larger first floor accommodation with two walk-in wardrobes and a larger landing, plus an impressive master suite to the second with walk in wardrobe, en-suite, lantern roof and elevated views of the surrounding countryside. Purchasers are naturally advised to obtain independent planning advice in this respect.
A large driveway with central island leads to an attractive three-bay cart lodge, whilst to the rear of the property is a good size raised, decked terrace, ideal for entertaining and giving excellent views of the gardens and countryside beyond.
Ideally situated within walking distance of all village amenities, including Ingatestone Mainline railway station (0.8 mile walk), High Street shops and restaurants, and all local schools, including the Anglo European.
