Set within an exclusive, gated community in sought-after Copford, the five-bedroom Neo-Georgian house is as exquisite inside as it is out. Built in 2014, it offers over 3,000 sq ft of accommodation with the main feature being the large open plan kitchen/dining/family room with large lantern window bringing in an abundance of light and ability for flexible living. According to the agent marketing the property. "This is a stylish impressive house, which is wonderfully light," he says. "It was built to an exceptional standard, with great attention to detail.. It is ready to move into and will be an outstanding place to live with friendly and impeccable neighbours ”

"The location is ideal for people wishing to commute into London as the train station is within walking distance,", with direct access to London Liverpool Street in just under an hour.. He says.

The area is known for its attractive walks that include a leisurely walk to nearby Copford Green with its friendly pub serving a selection of food and beverages, 12th Century Norman Church and village hall. The village hall runs various activities for children and families. Just before Marks Tey station is a local supermarket, bakers, chemist and excellent butchers.

The spacious house is entered via a generous reception hall, which offers access to the cloakroom, playroom/gym and study, as well as the living room and kitchen breakfast room. "The kitchen is an impressive space, which opens up into a fabulous orangery/family dining area. This has a lantern window in the ceiling which brings the light streaming down from above. The current owners have chosen to position a large dining table beneath this, which looks very striking. Superb space for even the largest of families and excellent for entertaining friends and family.

There is parking to the front of the property and a carport and single garage to the rear with additional parking for two vehicles.

Doors from the dining room pull back on to the sumptuous sitting room, making the entire space excellent for entertaining, he observes. "The living room can also be opened up on to the garden, allowing guests to spill outside in warmer weather to where there is an attractive seating area." All five bedrooms are located on the first floor of the house. Two of these have en suite shower rooms and there is a luxurious family bathroom. "The master bedroom is very cleverly designed with walk-in wardrobes behind"

They are set around the attractive Grade II Listed Manor House, which was renovated when the newer homes were built. This iconic building was originally home to the Lord of the Manor, and would have overseen an extensive estate. It later became a hotel of distinction and then a destination nightclub. "Millstone Green has a lot of history and this house has an external appearance which is sympathetic to that," he says.
