5 Bedroom
*Guide Price £600,000 to £625,000*.
A deceptively spacious, individually constructed FIVE BEDROOM detached house (approaching 3000sqft), occupying a semi rural position, with large garage/workshop, and lots of parking available.

The property features two enormous reception rooms (see floor plan), separate Dining and Breakfast Areas, two modern bathrooms (ground floor re-fitted in 2018), and as previously mentioned a 31ft x 16ft Garage/Workshop.
The house is situated at the end of Rookery Lane, adjacent to farm land, and with an open aspect to the front. Tiptree with its excellent amenities is approximately 3 miles distant and Maldon 5 miles distant (by road)
In summary, a unique property in a lovely setting, which has been occupied by the same family for over 45 years, with lots of further potential, of which a viewing is highly recommended
