A versatile internal layout with generous proportions incorporates three first floor bedrooms, a ground floor playroom/bedroom four for guests, plus there is both a modern fitted en-suite shower room and bathroom.
The ground floor has also been greatly enhanced over recent years. A full depth, side extension has created a much larger kitchen while also providing a utility room and an open plan dining area with four skylight windows and an adjoining study space, currently used as a home office.
As you will see from the photos the property sits well back from the lane enjoying a double length driveway, while the 75' rear garden enjoys a much-favoured westerly aspect with a patio and hardwood deck that features rather funky colour changing LED concealed lighting.
The village has an active community and plenty of amenities including two very good pubs - the White Horse (twice voted 'Best Family Pub in East Anglia), the Nags Head (traditional village pub much used by the locals), a Coffee shop, Hairdressers, an air-conditioned village hall available for hire and even a Tennis Club.

A bit of history
Ramsden Bellhouse and Ramsden Heath are now two separate villages, but until the first part of the 20th Century they were one village, which stretched from Stock in the north to Nevendon in the south.
The village was centered around the crossroads, where today the war memorial stands, in front of the White Horse Pub.
Confusingly it was known back then as Ramsden Bellhouse with Ramsden Heath simply an area of heathland to the north of the village.
About 1910 Homesteads Ltd bought Ramsden Bellhouse Farm and built an estate centre around St. Mary's Church about a mile from the old village which became known as Ramsden Bellhouse, and gradually the old village became Ramsden Heath.
