4 Bedroom detached house Holly Lane , Great Horksley , CO6 £550,000

Something far from the ordinary, with this one of a kind home in the picturesque village of Great Horkesley down the sought after Holly Lane.

A four bedroom detached cottage sitting on approximately a third of an acre, with a driveway and detached double garage.

The cottage sits down a quiet and sought after Holly Lane in Great Horkesley. With fields surrounding the lane, this is right down your street if you like those countryside walks. Nearby are the local amenities the village of Great Horkesley offers, with a local primary school with outstanding Ofsted reports. A short drive away is the mainline station to London Liverpool Street, with no more than a fifty-five minute commute into London. Furthermore, the oldest recorded town of Colchester with its array of bars, restaurants and shops are a short drive away.

Have you ever wanted that home business to create your own empire. With an insulated detached double garage with power and light, we have found your home office to become your very own entrepreneur. If you would prefer to store those classical cars, so you free up the driveway to store your motorhome, or park the numerous vehicles most modern day families need, the choice is yours.

The home sits on approximately a third of an acre, allowing the children to run around until their hearts content. How about creating your next Chelsea flower show and get, your hands stuck into making it your own. Why not enjoy the fields to the rear and enjoy sitting on the decking area with a glass of wine letting time go by. With an abundance of rear garden, the choice is yours.

Inside, the original cottage has been extended over the years, to give an abundance of reception space, with a spacious lounge and conservatory, for those looking to have a peaceful retreat away from the family. If you want to be part of a social hub, the kitchen/diner is your new hub to entertain friends and family, while you cook up that feast to be envy off. If your guests need to freshen up, there is the downstairs cloakroom and utility room to take advantage off. If you want a home office to free up the detached double garage for storage, the study/home office is your new best friend.

After a long day, you need space and comfort to sleep the night away. With the four spacious bedrooms on offer, there is no need to panic as to who gets the biggest bedroom. There is the en suite to master bedroom, which is complimented by the family bathroom.
