4 Bedroom detached house Firstore Drive, Lexden, Colchester, CO3 £350,000


The property is located in the desirable location of Lexden on the West side of Colchester. Location is key for many reasons and this is right down your street, having everything on your doorstep. With Marks Tey Train Station and Colchester North Station a short drive away, giving access links to London Liverpool Street. For the commuter in mind this is ideal with the A12 carriageway a stone's throw away, giving access links towards London. For those that like local amenities, why not walk to the local shops on London Road as well as Aldi Supermarket. If you want to walk to Colchester Town Centre to take advantage of the numerous shops, bars and restaurants, you can walk across Cymbeline Way and through Hilly Fields Country Park and you are in the Town Centre within 30 minutes, with the need to cross only Cymbeline Way, but take advantage of beautiful scenery along the way. It gets even better as you step inside, when you realise the amount of reception space on offer, ideal for the large family looking for space. On top of this, as much as you can move in, unpack and put your feet up, there is scope for you to make this your own forever home. How about making the current separate lounge and dining room into one open plan room? What about turning the current kitchen and separate dining room into one open plan kitchen/diner? The possibilities are endless and with the integral double garage, there is the idea that if you do not need the garage for storage, this could be converted (STPP) into a further reception room or downstairs bedroom with en suite. Along with the vast amounts of storage throughout the home anyway, the idea presented for the garage would lean itself also for anyone looking to work from home and have their home business. When you walk upstairs, there are three spacious bedrooms that the family can take advantage of, allowing the children to choose their bedroom, without any arguments as to who gets the biggest bedroom. When it comes to the master bedroom, you need a master en suite to make you feel you are king and queen of the household, so with the en suite complimented by the family bathroom; the idea of having your own privacy can become a reality. The home originally was a four bedroom home, with the original fourth bedroom converted to give an extended master bedroom with dressing area to now give the current three bedrooms on offer. There would be the scope to convert this back to a four bedroom home if your needs must. A big selling point for many buyers is the garden and this can only be described as a box that is ticked for those that love a garden. The size is spacious enough for the children to run around until their hearts content, but not too big that you need to spend your free time keeping on top of it.

With a driveway providing off road parking for numerous vehicles, downstairs cloakroom and plenty of storage a family needs, this home rarely comes to the market in such a desirable location. Call now to arrange your private viewing.
