Tucked discreetly in a scenic backstreet just behind the shops, bars and restaurants of Witham High Street, this huge 2 Bedroom luxury Apartment of over 948sq ft, enjoys an enviable location within a Conservation area right in the heart of the Town and with it, just an easy half mile stroll to Witham Mainline Railway Station with only a 45 minute journey time into London´s Liverpool Street station - perfect for the City Commuter.

Witham is a thriving ancient market town established on the high road from London to Colchester, with two shopping centres either side of the long High Street and the convenience of the adjacent A12 trunk road between Chelmsford and Colchester, giving access to the M25, M11 and London to the South. There are amenities a-plenty in the town, including four Supermarkets: a Tesco`s, Morrisons, Asda and Aldi, along with excellent schools and the Benton Hall Golf and Country Club with its18 hole parkland course set amongst natural woodland and rolling countryside, renowned for its impressive views and the River Blackwater meandering through it.

The apartment forms part of Guithavon House, a modern building that was converted into a luxury apartment block in 2016/2017 and thus retaining the balance of a 10-year Build Zone Warranty. The development is situated in Guithavon Street, a street evolved during the Victorian period still remaining to this day a strong Victorian character, with many of the properties built between the 1840s and 1860s, and thus the triggering of the road forming part of the ‘Witham Town Centre (Newland Street)` Conservation Area. Practically opposite our building is a large public car park, which covers the site of the old Victorian National School, which was demolished in the 1960s and provides useful and low-priced visitor parking in addition to the allocated Space that comes with this apartment.

Our apartment is the biggest in the development, occupying a large chunk of the Top Floor and briefly comprising a rather impressively long Entrance Hall stretching between the spacious 17ft x 15ft+ Lounge at one end and the 14ft 6" x 12ft Guest Bedroom at the other. In between these is the beautiful Kitchen/Diner with its Grey Oak worktops, elegant Cream `Shaker` style kitchen units, integrated appliances and big dining space, the Master Bedroom with its own private Ensuite Shower Room and the main Bathroom.

Along with the abundant living space, a confection of gorgeous wood effect vinyl flooring and grey carpets, smooth plastered ceilings and very tasteful interior decor, makes for a striking, stylish and seriously good-looking residence.

ENTRANCE HALL

A very pleasant surprise, this is a really good size Hall with smart contemporary style internal `Oak` doors. Looking left the long hall opens seamlessly into the large lounge, giving an even greater impression of space and the large 5ft 5" wide built-in cupboard houses the 100% efficient, silent in operation, Fusion `Comet` System Electric Boiler, providing a wet central heating system with all the flexibility and controllability that a gas fired central heating system offers but without the extra gas pipework, as its all electric! Brilliant!

KITCHEN/DINER 13ft x 11ft 6" (3.96m x 3.51m)

Originally designed to be open plan to the adjoining lounge, the current owner requested the Developer to separate the kitchen off into a separate room, and this works superbly, as both rooms are still great sizes and work far better separate.

The kitchen units themselves are an attractive blend of light cream `Shaker` style cabinets topped with `Grey Oak`, square edge worktops and incorporating a host of integrated and built-in appliances comprising an integrated Fridge/Freezer, Dishwasher and Washing Machine, along with a sleek electric hob with Oven below and an integrated Extractor Hood above.

A surprisingly generous size for a second bedroom, this lovely room is also nice and light courtesy of its` south facing window
