Whether crackling with frost on a bright winter morning or bathed in summer sun, the countryside holds enormous appeal

Phaedra Howard, from Savills’ Chelmsford-based residential team, grew up on the east coast and has been selling houses in Essex for 14 years. Phaedra joined Savills in 2005 and specialises in prime property in the city and surrounding villages.

Away from the immediate bustle of the city, the prospect of attractive scenery and distant views is a big draw for buyers. And in Essex, where such pleasures can be easily teamed with commutability and urban pursuits if required, house hunters may find they are buying into the best of both worlds.

Set in beautiful countryside yet only about 5.4 miles from Chelmsford station, Shop Cottages at Mashbury started out as three cottages, believed to date from the mid-19th century. Extended and remodelled by the current owners in 2013, the result is a large, light and airy detached house with a master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms all of which enjoy lovely rural views. The house sits in approximately 1.7 acres.

Shop Cottages has a guide price of £895,000. For more information, contact Savills Chelmsford on 01245 293 233
