Looking for something steeped in history? Look no further haart have the home for you!

Walking into this home is an experience in and of itself. Having originally owned the land for the other homes on Harp Meadow Lane it has retained a substantial plot whilst ensuring the grounds are much more manageable.

This 1920's mansion sits at the end of Harp Meadow lane offering fantastic privacy and peace and quiet whilst sat behind the popular Layer Road with fantastic links to local transport, shops and Colchester historic town centre a short ride away.

Once inside the home you are at once greeted by the amount of space on offer. The high ceilings throughout really create a sense of light, space and grandeur, especially in the living room. With fantastic space and stunning design features such as the quilted walls this is the ideal place to relax after a day at the office. Set the fireplace in the winter and it will keep you warm through the colder months of the year. The double aspect windows ensure that even during those darker months there is enough light to keep the room looking its best.

For those with a big family, or who love to entertain, the dining room is the ideal place for that family get together or evening dinner party. The access from the dining room to the side garden ensures that there is an effortless flow between the inside and outside of the home.

In the colder months, when the outside is less inviting, you can still enjoy the garden through the huge windows that simply draw in the light.

When the family is in a rush, or a more formal dining experience simply isn't needed, there is the advantage here of the breakfast room. Sitting in-between the kitchen and the conservatory it offers real flexibility to the home and is ideal for those who need somewhere to feed the family quickly.

When people think of conservatories they normally will not be thinking of something on this scale. Sitting to the rear of the property it simply pulls in light and completes the home. Perfect for that morning cup of tea or enjoying a night-cap before bed this room is ideal for all occasions. In the summer months it will be ideal for providing an inside space during those garden parties.

Working from home is a dream many aspire too, here that dream can become a reality. With a spacious workshop or home office annexed off from the main home it is perfect for either a hobby room or home office. Currently the owners use it as a fantastic hobby room for creating the many doll's houses you will see around the home on your viewing.

Many men and women dream of their own den where they can relax with their friends and may shoot a bit of snooker? The home billiard room here is ideal for those with a love of snooker. If snooker isn't your thing it creates a wonderful space that could be used for many a different activity, did I hear you say home gym?

A home of this nature would not be complete without a study and here is no different. With space to store your collection of books and curiosities this room is the perfect place to shut away and get some work done. The children will love the peace and tranquillity on offer here when studying for either their exams or getting their homework done.

The garden on this home is something that needs to be seen to be appreciated. Having been lovingly landscaped over the years it is a gardener's dream and wraps round the rear and side of the property. This gives two distinct garden areas which is ideal for those with grand gardening ideas on the horizon.

Bedrooms on this home need to be seen to be appreciated. The master reminds one of something from Louis XVI's era. With quilted walls, canopies above the bed and a stunning fireplace one will feel they are relaxing in Versailles and not Colchester.

The second bedroom's stand out feature has to be the balcony with views over the gardens. It creates a wonderful guest room that is the ideal way to show off your home to friends and family.

Parking here is provided by a spacious off road drive way and the home also benefits from a detached double garage to the front of the home.

Viewing is highly advised on this home. Please contact haart of Colchester to arrange your private viewing.
