About this property:
If you like the external appearance of a 1930s property but want all the mod cons associated with 21st century living this newly constructed, three storey, five bedroom semi-detached house in the popular location of Dukes Avenue should tick all the right boxes. While the front of the house might look as though it was built in ‘days of yore,’ internally this veritable tardis of a family home has everything you could want in terms of modern day living including a stunning family space.
The house is set back from the road and approached via a wide paved pathway, flanked by a front lawn and shrub borders with steps to a charming covered porch and contemporary front door. The hall leads past the lounge and cloakroom to the impressive open plan family area and kitchen/diner. This has lovely wood flooring, a large skylight and four bi-folding doors to the terrace, providing plenty of natural light and, when the doors are open, you really feel you are bringing the outside indoors. The magnificent central island/breakfast bar and glossy black units with white worktops provide a very up to date feel and house a variety of built in and integrated appliances. There are also double doors to a large cupboard and access to a small larder. The delightful lounge offers a totally different warm and friendly atmosphere with its dark walls, large bay window and very attractive fireplace.
On the first floor there is a contemporary family bathroom and three bedrooms including one that is currently set out as a dressing room, a second double and the attractive main with its wall of mirrored and sliding door wardrobes and en-suite shower room. While on the second floor there are two bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and skylight windows as well as a bathroom and a small landing with enough space for a computer desk. This is an ideal area for teenagers wanting a bit of independence and where they can entertain their friends. Outside the easy to manage rear garden is just the place to relax. There is a lovely Indian stone patio with plenty of room for al fresco dining as well as a swim spa and steps up to a lawn and a path to the rear gate.
What the owner says:
We have been delighted to build this delightful home as it is in such a charming location. With its wide pavements interspersed with grassy areas and trees, Dukes Avenue is a very popular part of Theydon Bois. It is only a short walk to the countryside and nearby golf course on the edge of Epping Forest and we are only 0.6 miles from the station, this is on the Central Line so you can be in the City of London in about 30 minutes. There is also easy access to the M11 and M25 and it is only a couple of miles from Loughton.
We are very fond of Theydon Bois. It is a fascinating village with an iconic avenue of trees and virtually no streetlights as the residents felt they would detract from the traditional village ambience. It includes a wellrespected primary school, three pubs, a Tesco supermarket, a variety of independent shops, as well as a dentist and a doctor’s surgery. As well as the golf club there is also a tennis club and a cricket club, for those who enjoy the sound of leather on willow.
