A cosy 30ft x 20ft Mobile home on a concrete base with a brick plinth, in a woodland setting on a Greenbelt plot of 0.62 of an acre to the West of Gardiners Lane North, discreetly set back from the road via a gated entrance track that serves a yard behind Adelaide Villa and another residential property further up the lane.

There are further areas of hardstanding, as the property was used a kennelling and although the dog runs are now gone, four timber outbuildings of varying sizes remain.

The site is accessed via a big set of timber gates that swing open to a large area of parking, with the property to the left. The other side of the property is the garden area and woodland, perfect play area for the sellers 4 dogs.

The property itself was originally a 2 bedroom unit but with no need for a second bedroom, the sellers have it currently arranged with a 19ft x 11ft Lounge, 16ft x 9ft Kitchen/Diner and a small inner hall accessing the Bedroom and Shower Room.

Timeless, traditional, efficient and homely, the Danish, Cast Iron 'Morsø' Multi-fuel burning Stove in the Lounge provides very low cost heating and hot water for the whole home - the heating via normal radiators and hot water via the kitchen sink and shower room.

Gardiners Lane North joins onto the A127 Southend bound arterial road giving easy road access and CRAYS HILL village itself has a handy 'Premier' convenience store supplying the daily essentials and in the evenings and weekends, why not pop along to the great local pub/restaurant called The Shepherd and Dog, which has a beer garden and large patio - it does good food and quite a range of beers/ales.

Bus Stops in the village give easy access to the neighbouring towns of Billericay & Wickford - both with Mainline Railway Stations (London Liverpool Street in 35 minutes from Billericay). Plus, just up the road is the Barleylands Farm Shop, which sells fresh fruit, vegetables, and a large selection of groceries.

From Gardiners Lane, a big tall set of double gates open wide to reveal the private track/lane. Turning into the lane, there is a yard behind Adeleide Villas on the right (again with a big set of heavy doors giving it privacy and security) and further up on the right another set of big secure gates which swing open to Rose Cottage and its land.

In front of the property is a large area of parking and a couple of the outbuildlings, the others set behind fenced enclosures.

The other side of the property is the Garden area and woodland, again all enclosed for the dogs.


Two of the timber outbuildings are Kennel sheds with tiled floors, lighting and power. One 8ft 6' x 4ft 9' (2.6m x 1,.45m) and the other 6ft 5' x 5ft 5' (2m x 1.65m)

The other two are the aforementioned Utility Building and a large storage 'barn'.


REGARDING REPLACEMENT OF THE EXISTING, WITH A LARGER MOBILE HOME

We have been advised by the current seller via a supplied document, that there is the "fall-back" of being able to replace the existing unit with a larger one, by being allowed to "lawfully station" a larger mobile home "anywhere on the site to the maximum dimensions of 20m x 6.8m, x 3.05m", replacing the existing unit. This is by no means a guarantee and so we would recommend interested buyers instruct their solicitor to look in to this fully before comiting, if a large unit is required.

Assuming it is allowed, then we would suggest buyers also look at Log Cabins too. There are some amazing ones available nowadays for the same cost a decent new car and we believe a log cabin can be classed as a mobile home if it falls within the above size constraints. Do take the time to look online at these options although the existing unit seems to be in full operational condition.
