Billericay itself is an affluent commuter town with a fast and frequent train service (35 minutes) to London Liverpool Street.
The centrepiece of both these contemporary family homes is the stunning 28ft x 20ft `hub-of-the-home` Kitchen/Family Room with a large area for Living, Dining and socialising, blending into the kitchen area which sees beautiful white Quartz worktops complimenting the hand painted `Castle Grey Shaker style units and top-quality Siemens built-in appliances. Fully opening bi-folding doors lead out to the Garden, making this a great home for entertaining.
The Bathroom, Ensuites and ground floor Cloakroom have all been luxuriously appointed and there is underfloor water heating downstairs.
Further features include the gorgeous polished porcelain floor tiles extending through the Hall, Cloakroom, Kitchen/Family Room and Utility Room, harmonising with a sea of luxurious deep pile grey carpet in the Lounge and then running up the American Oak staircase and through the landing and into the 4 large sumptuous bedrooms.
There`s parking for 3 cars on each drive and at nearly 7 metres long, the Garage will take a large luxury car with ease.
Piped water Underfloor heating beneath the beautiful and hard wearing grey polished floor tiles, provides a warm, stylish, and practical winter welcome. These large high shine porcelain tiles extend into the Utility Room and Kitchen-Dining-Family Room.
NB: Because the heat from a water based underfloor system is more evenly distributed than a radiator, this system can use water at a lower temperature, making it a more efficient way of heating the home.
Elegant cornice has been put up here in the hall and in all the rooms, bar the Ensuites and Bathroom, with super-efficient LED downlighting also found throughout his luxury home.

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.
