If you are environmentally conscious and looking to move to the Brentwood area then this wonderful, five bedroom, eco-friendly, family home in Hutton is a real find! Available on a guide price of £550,000 to £600,000.
The current owner bought this home back in 2018 and has since added some fantastic features to help conserve energy, reduce bills and run a family home more efficiently. Some of the features include installing solar panels and air conditioning/heating units used for cooling and heating, as well as increased fibre cabling with a 1Gb downstream socket, which is perfect for working from home in the office/study space created.
The heating is provided by modern remote controlled storage heaters that charge overnight in the kitchen (2 of them) and hallway, as well as the air conditioning units in all the rooms.
So, let's take a look at this home in a little more detail..
As you enter the house there is a downstairs cloakroom to your left in the porch area, perfect for guests and a must in a family home of this size.
Walking along the hall you will find the stairs leading up to the first floor in front of you. There is a large living room on the ground floor with large windows looking out to the front of the house. This designated lounge has plenty of space for a dining table and benefits from an air-conditioning unit keeping the family room cool in the summer. There are also electronic, wireless, smart blinds, a sliding door to the kitchen, pocket door to study and privacy film on the windows avoiding the need for curtains, which is removable if need be.
No expense has been spared in the kitchen with matching contemporary high gloss units and quartz worktops with breakfast bar, that includes a downdraft Induction hob with built-in extractor to the plinths, plate warmer and oven. There is space for microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, large American-style fridge freezer, as well as excellent larder storage with plug socket inside. My personal favourite in the kitchen is the Quooker tap with its five in one water facilities.
Other features include a recycling drawer with auto open, under cabinets lights as well as a Skylight and the attached conservatory benefiting from an insulated ceiling and just fit blinds.
Next to the kitchen is the home office/study area which is fitted with fibre to the home socket, offering 1Gb downstream and broadband connection currently with BT. Ethernet cables lead off to the rest of the house from here. There is an air-conditioning unit and just like the kitchen the attached conservatory benefits from an insulated ceiling and just fit blinds. A really cool feature of the study space is the remote-controlled electronic skylight (matching with the same in the kitchen) flooding the space with light when needed that also includes a blind with rain sensor.
Moving upstairs to the first floor the main bedroom offers floor to ceiling wardrobes, privacy glass and electronic, wireless, smart blinds. There are also two other double bedrooms on this floor and each with its own air-conditioning units.
The family bathroom is fitted with a Mira smart shower with remote, a lovely jacuzzi bath, a window and floor to ceiling tiling. There is a tankless toilet with auto flush, deodoriser, and bidet function, as well as underfloor heating, touch-less Illuminated mirror cabinet with shaver socket inside.
On the second floor you will find two further double bedrooms as part of a loft conversion, one fitted with a triple-glazed skylight and the other with privacy glass and each with air-conditioning units. This space could also be reconfigured, if need be, to possibly provide one larger bedroom with en-suite.
The current owner has also adapted the garden to accommodate the family's lifestyle with a block paved outdoor low maintenance entertaining space including hot tub and space for Al-fresco dining. For animal lovers this garden is a dream as it's perfectly enclosed keeping your dog or cat safe and there is even cat proof fencing installed.
To the rear of the garden the insulated double garage has been converted into a gym, with air-conditioning and its very own sauna. There is also an additional storage area. On the roof of the garage are the solar panels providing energy to the house peaking at 5kw with 3.6kwh inverter.
There is access at the side of the property leading back to the front of the house, which has also been block paved to provide parking for two vehicles.

The owner also advises that the house is zero carbon due to his electric provider being Octopus. He is on the 'Intelligent Octopus Plan' which gives him a minimum of 6 hours@ 7.5p per kWh
The Mixergy 160l pressurised direct cylinder charges up overnight which is approximately 50p per day for full tank (7.5p per kWh, about 5kWh to charge up, enough for 3+ showers a day).
There are Infra-red panels in the cloakroom and in the bathroom on each ceiling. (600w each).
Located in the Hutton area of Brentwood, the property is within walking distance to Shenfield rail station and high street. Shenfield Station provides frequent trains to London Liverpool Street and out further into Essex and beyond. Shenfield is the eastern terminus of the Elizabeth Line offering fully operational Crossrail services. The Elizabeth Line carries passengers from Shenfield, straight through to central London and then out to the west via Heathrow, terminating at Reading.
The wider Brentwood area really offers the best of town and country. From the amazing country parks - to the high street stores, bars and restaurants in Brentwood and Shenfield, not forgetting to mention the excellent schools and wonderful independent businesses and retailers in the area - it's a brilliant place to be!
