Having been recently redecorated and stylishly improved, it is with no hesitation we recommend an internal viewing of this pleasantly located two bedroom top floor apartment.

This 'Bellway' built development of apartments is located within the Conservation area of Noak Bridge, overlooking a duck pond and being on the Billericay side of the A127, this apartment is also ideally placed for quick access to both Billericay and Basildon towns which offer a range of shopping facilities together with Mainline Railway Stations serving either London's Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street lines.

Noak Bridge is well known for its 20 acre Nature Reserve and attractive 'model village' design with lots of trees, hedges and green spaces an essential feature. The village has a good range of amenities too, which include a Costcutter Supermarket and Health Centre. Bus stops are a-plenty in the area taking you to the nearby towns.

It's not often an apartment of this style and presentation will come available to the open market. Internally the rooms are of generous proportions and each has its own individual attention to detail or feature.

Special attention should be drawn to the Lounge which has an open plan design to the stylish kitchen.

In addition, this apartment has the added appeal of having gas radiator heating, doubled glazed windows, residents parking and the advantage of no onward chain.

The accommodation:

The Main Entrance door (with an intercom system linking it to all the flats) leads through to the communal hall with a flight of stairs rising up to the spacious top floor landing serving just this and one other apartment.

ENTRANCE HALL: With a wall mounted entryphone system on the wall as you enter, this long L-shape hall has a big built-in airing cupboard at the end, and a loft hatch providing access to the huge Attic - a superb storage facility and the big advantage of having a top floor apartment.

KITCHEN 2.74m 2.18m (9ft x 7ft 2") We love the sleek and stunning high gloss 'Cashmere' Grey kitchen units and 'cinnamon grain' worktops accompanied by underunit lighting and contemporary style, polished grey splashback tiles giving a real touch of urban chic.

Noak Bridge is a modern neighbourhood village forming part of Basildon in south Essex. In setting, it is separate from Basildon as It lies to the north of the Town, separated from it by the A127, and in reality is closer to Billericay.

Although earmarked for large scale development at the turn of the 19th/20th Century, the modern village as it is today was first planned in the 1970s, as part of Basildon and was developed from the overgrown 'Central Park', an early area of 'plotlands'.

Because of its separation by the A127, it was decided that it should have its own identity and the character of a traditional English village, which we at Henton Kirkman think the project architects Maurice Naunton and George Garrard, achieved very well, especially by incorporating house designs from various centuries to give an almost instant history to a brand new village.

Building started in the 1970's through to the mid 1980's, with then BellwayHomes enlarging it further in the 1990's.

The village has now evolved into a very pleasant place to live with many amenities including its own Primary School, Costcutter Supermarket, Pharmacy, Village Hall and a Medical Centre.

The village was purposely designed with winding roads and numerous woodland footpaths with the centrepiece of the village the 20 acre Nature Reserve which was the remnants of the Woodland that developed from the site of the old plotlands.

Coming out of the village, one can be motoring on the A127 towards London or Southen in seconds with bus stops a-plenty in the village giving easy access to all the local towns.
