Situated in the village of Crays Hill, itself midway between the towns of Billericay and Wickford – both with mainline railway stations on the Liverpool Street line, this three bedroom semi-detached house is set well back from the main road giving an abundance of parking and boasts garden 110 feet in length, enjoying country views beyond.

Fully refurbished and extended, this is now a very stylish and contemporary affair both inside and out, with behind the bright red front door, beautifully presented accommodation including a 23 feet long Quartz topped ‘Navy and White Gloss' fully fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room featuring a huge 2.5m x 1.2m Island Unit with a rather swish 'Combination' Induction Hob featuring an integrated downdraft Extractor and a 4-Seater Breakfast Bar, a large adjacent Utility Room with a door through to the attached Garage (which has a radiator), gorgeous ground floor Shower room and across the back, the Lounge is bathed in light by two big sets of patio doors enjoying the country views and featuring a woodburning Stove.

Downstairs also has a very versatile 16ft second reception room which could've course make a fourth bedroom.

Upstairs are the three double bedrooms and the bathroom – currently fitted out as a luxury shower room.

At the end of the garden is a full width concrete area housing a large 19 feet long Cabin, incorporating electrics and a ‘hot and cold' Air-conditioner.
The concrete area is perfectly flat so you can pave straight over or deck, as the fancy takes you.

Although in a rural village surrounded by countryside, there is full mains drainage and gas - with up in the loft (which has been re-felted) the new Combination Boiler.

The property is very conveniently located in the village, with bus stops for either direction a couple of doors up and across the road, the Shepherd and dog pub/restaurant is a handy one minute stroll up the road (has a great reputation and serves locally sourced classic dishes and afternoon tea, as well as a good pint), and heading in the other direction and again, just a few minutes' walk away, is the village Convenience Store and Post Office.

Billericay town is a quick three-minute drive and has a quaint but well stocked High Street with a central Waitrose Store and plenty of great eating places intermingled with popular bars and pubs.

The Accommodation

Combining style with security, the red on the outside/white on the inside composite front door, leads through to:

LOBBY 5ft '5" x 3ft1" (1.65m x 0.94m)

With an attractive wood effect vinyl flooring which extends on into the Kitchen/Diner.

The smart and contemporary 'Grey Oak' internal doors compliment the grey hues within the attractive wood laminate flooring which extends on into the Lounge and Inner Hall.

KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 23ft x 13ft (7.01m x 3.96m)

The open plan layout is perfect for entertaining and the large 2.5m x 1,2m Island gives you storage space, workspace, and the perfect place to socialise.

The 'Integrated Handle' kitchen units are a contrast of Navy Blue and White Gloss - the units along the walls mainly dark Navy, the huge Island a bright White, and they look great topped with the sparkling Quartz worktops.

Inset within the Island is a swish 80cm wide Combination Induction Hob/Downdraft Extractor - the concealed downdraft extraction supporting the trend for hidden ventilation. Across the other side of the Island is a 4-Seater Breakfast Bar.

Along with the sleek Hob there is a built In Multi-function Oven/Grill, a Compact Oven with Microwave, Integrated full height Larder Fridge and some clever storage systems including a full height larder unit with drawers, a recycling unit, and a corner pull-out storage system.

The rear door is an attractive composite 'Stable' style door with a bank of four lights adjacent, these controlling the Gardens' zig-zagging festoon lighting and the five outside lights along the back wall of the house.

GROUND FLOOR SHOWER ROOM 8ft 9" x 2ft 10" (2.67m x 0.86m)

This on-trend Shower Room has a large cubicle with both a 'Rain' showerhead and a separate handset too, along with a White Gloss wall-hung Vanity Unit and a back-to-wall WC with concealed cistern.

The suite is complemented by attractive grey ceramic tiling, a chrome towel radiator, and an obscure glazed window provides natural light.

1st FLOOR LANDING 8ft 6" narrowing to 5ft 5" x 7ft (2.59m narrowing to 1.65m x 2.13m)

The front facing window over the stairwell brings in natural light and looking up we see the loft hatch opening to reveal a fitted loft ladder providing easy access to the Loft which is part boarded with a light. The loft also houses the new Ideal E30 Combi Boiler and has been re-felted too.

Replacing the Boiler and hot water cylinder with a Combi boiler means the large full height airing cupboard can be used for pure storage – a great facility.

MASTER BEDROOM 13ft 1" x 10ft 1" (4.01m x 3.07m)

The wide front window has a fitted blind and we particularly liked the teal coloured and metallic shimmering 3D-effect geometric patterned feature papered wall.

BEDROOM TWO 13ft 5" x 9ft (4.08m x 2.74m)

Although slightly smaller than the Principle Bedroom, this could easily be used as such, due to its glorious rear countryside outlook.

Continuing the theme of a feature wall, this room has a silver grey 'retro waves' wallpaper design.

BEDROOM THREE 11ft 5" x 7ft 9" (3.5m x 2.36m)

As with the second bedroom, this double bedroom also has a rear facing window, enjoying that superb countryside outlook.

BATHROOM 7ft 7" x 6ft 4" (2.31m x 1.93m)

Presently fitted out as a luxury shower room featuring a 1700mm x 760mm walk-in glass framed Shower, along with a 'Dark Grey Gloss' wall-hung two-drawer Vanity unit, coupled with a matching back-to-wall WC.

EXTERIOR - REAR GARDEN 109ft x 33ft (33m x 9.9m)

The full width terraced patio enjoys a lovely rural outlook, the old Maple tree just beyond the Patio providing a pleasant backdrop. An external double power socket is installed on the back wall of the house and to the left as you go out, is an open woodstore for the stove, which will be remaining.

Steps lead down to the main lawn which has sleeper retained beds on the left, and a characterful Silver Birch tree on the right.

The paved path winds down to a concreted area at the end, approx 24ft deep and the full width. Here we have the large, detached CABIN with a shed tucked behind to the right.
The concreted area is very flat and perfect to be paved or decked straight over.

CABIN 18ft 9" x 9ft 1" (5.72m x 2.77m)

The perfect Home Bar. The four windows and the set of central double doors are all double glazed, and there is also a wall mounted Samsung 'hot and cold' Air-Conditioning unit for all year-round use.

The party bar has already been installed, just awaiting stocking with your drinks.

Solar powered lights under the projecting front overhang give evening illumination, which along with the zigzagging garden festoon lighting (to remain), and the five outside lights, makes for a garden designed for entertaining at all times of day.

FYI, the SHED measures approximately 6ft x 5ft (1.83m x 1.52m).
