Originally built as the largest design of home on the Arundel Heights development, this substantial home with three reception rooms and a detached double garage occupies a corner plot and provides you with an impressive 2000sqft of accommodation.

It's worth noting the spaciousness of the ground floor is enhanced by lovely 2.5m (8'2) ceiling heights that run through out each room while the reception hall with its open stairwell rising to the first floor, helps to ensure the spacious feel continues.

Each of the four bedrooms are double rooms with both the main and second being exceptionally large. There is also the possibility to divide the current en-suite bathroom into 2 shower rooms to in turn also give the second bedroom its own en-suite.

In addition, the internal ground floor layout of rooms could be reconfigured to provide you with a kitchen/diner/day room to one side of the hall while still retaining the generous lounge that leads onto the westerly garden and the front facing study to the other.

Arundel Heights is a sought-after estate to the much-favoured north side of Billericay and right opposite Stock Brook Manor Country Club with its top leisure facilities and golf course.

If education is a high priority, then you may be interested to know the property falls within catchment for the highly regarded Buttsbury & Mayflower Schools - Mayflower High School recently just being awarded an 'Outstanding' school by OFSTED.

For the commuter, there are bus stops in the immediate vicinity taking you to the Station, itself on the London Liverpool Street line and accessing the City in just 35 minutes.

ACCOMMODATION AS FOLLOWS..


RECEPTION HALL

As mentioned, this is the largest style of house that was designed for this acclaimed development.

The reception hall immediately gives you fantastic feeling of spaciousness, a feeling that is echoed throughout this home and enhanced further by the high ceilings that run throughout the ground floor.

In addition to the stairs rising to the first floor with an open stairwell, there is a large understairs storage cupboard and doors leading to each of the three reception rooms, the cloakroom and the kitchen.


CLOAKROOM

This very handy ground floor toilet with wall mounted basin also has a side window.


DINING ROOM 4.25 m x 2.73 m (13'9 x 8'10)

This is a generously sized room has two wall light points and a front facing window.

It's also worth noting this room adjoins the kitchen, so if desired (subject to consents) both rooms could be combined to create an incredibly large dual aspect kitchen family room which would then have an overall depth of approximately 7.5 m (24'6)


STUDY 2.93 m x 1.8 m (9'6 x 5'9)

Pleasantly positioned at the front of the house, this home office will give you views of the road whilst you merrily work from home.


LIVING ROOM 5.8 m x 3.92 m (19' x 12'8)

The high ceilings add to the spacious feel that is most noticeable in this wide living room which in addition to a feature fire surround and gas fire, has a window looking onto the garden and double doors leading onto the patio.


KITCHEN 3.9 m x 3.25 m (12'8 x 10'6)

Positioned to the rear of the house, the kitchen with a window looking onto the garden has been refitted with a good range of quality wood fronted units that, in turn, complement the well-chosen worktops with tiled splash backs and the Amtico flooring.

Built within the range of units is an integrated Bosch dishwasher, a Bosch double oven and hob and a sink unit with mixer tap and filtered water tap.In addition the replacement Worchester gas boiler is concealed within a corner cupboard.


UTILITY ROOM 2.58 m x 1.56 m (8'5 x 6')

The Amtico flooring from the kitchen flows seamlessly into the utility room which has a door to the garden and a matching range of units and worktops to ensure continuity. There are spaces for a tumble dryer and washing machine, both of which we understand will remain.


FIRST FLOOR LANDING

Having an open stairwell and a front facing window, the feeling of space that greets you downstairs continues to this first floor. There is an access point to the loft and doors into each of the bedrooms and bathroom.


BEDROOM ONE 3.97 m x 3.95 m (13' x 13')

Enjoying a part vaulted ceiling, the main bedroom enjoys a unique feature that gives an added level of character and style. Fitted to one wall are two double wardrobes and there is a door into the en-suite bathroom.


EN-SUITE BATHROOM 2.6 m x 1.8 m (8'6 x 6')

As you can tell this is a generously sized bathroom and there is a four-piece fitted suite that consists of a panel enclosed closed bath, a close coupled WC, a pedestal wash basin and a corner shower cubicle.


BEDROOM TWO 3.7 m x 3.67 m (12'1 x 12')

Again, this bedroom looks onto the garden and in addition to being a large double there are also built-in wardrobes.


BEDROOM THREE 3.24 m x 2.75 m (10'6 x 9')

This third double room looks out to the front of the house and has built-in wardrobes to one wall.


BEDROOM FOUR 3.04 m x 2.96 m (10' x 9'9)

Although this is the fourth bedroom there would be just enough space to make this your guestroom with a double bed, in addition to the front window there is a built-in storage cupboard.


BATHROOM 2.71 m x 1.69 m (8'11 x 5'7)

Being partly tiled, fitted with a white suite and having a front window, there is a panel enclosed bath with mixer taps and electric power shower unit, a close coupled WC and a pedestal wash basin.


OUTSIDE

This property occupies a commanding corner plot which includes a front lawn where there is a pathway to the front door while a brick paved driveway to the side gives tandem parking and access to the double garage.


DOUBLE GARAGE 5.2 m x 5 m (17'1 x 16'5)

With two up and over doors this garage with power and light connected, eaves storage space and a door to the garden gives you convenient storage with easy access!


REAR GARDEN

Commencing a brick paved patio, this garden which enjoys a westerly aspect has a lawn with surrounding shrub bed. To one corner there is a shed where there is an additional area of space behind together with a further access area to the side of the garage.

Billericay is a popular, historic market town just 30 miles from London.

The market at the top of Crown Road disappeared years ago and Billericay nowadays is more well-known as an excellent commuter town, with excellent rail links to the City (35 minutes by train), very good schools and a charming High Street, part of which is a conservation area.

It also has great access to the key main roads of the M25, A12 and A127.

The town lies on the edge of rural Essex, which makes it a very desirable place to live. This coupled with the City access goes some way to explain the high levels of Londoners we see looking to move here every year.

Since I moved here in 1973 and started as an estate agent in the mid 1990's, I have seen the town grow to where it is now, with some 14,000-15,000 homes and a population of over 40,000.

The Billericay you see today is economically and physically a thriving and attractive place to live and work. There are many open green spaces including the 40 acre Lake Meadows Park, a must in summer, and they throw a pretty impressive Fireworks Night too.

Norsey Woods is a great place for a walk or to exercise your dogs...or the kids! It dates back to the Bronze Age and covers about 165 acres with a visitor centre for the educational visits it has too.
I remember camping there as a cub scout back in the day and both Nick and myself have enjoyed many a afternoon there over the years with our families.

The High Street must be one of the prettiest in the county and dates back to Roman times. The shape we see now certainly hasn't changed much for over 500 years, our office itself is part of one of the 25 old coaching inns the town has seen over the years!

With well over 100 shops including some well known names and some boutique locally owned ones, the High Street also has some great pubs, bars and restaurants. The Chequers is probably the most popular, most people we know rate it as the best pub in town, with newer bars like Harrys Bar, Bar Zero and the Blue Boar, also very sought after, growing venues on friday and saturday nights.

There are too many great restaurants to name, suffice to say you don't need to travel out of Billericay to have a fantastic night out and there's a taxi rank by the station to get you home if you want to leave the car on the drive.

Waitrose is our local main supermarket with there also a very good Co-op over on Queens Park. Smaller supermarkets over in South Green, Sunnymede and along Stock Road also provide a super local service in their areas.

Billericay Christmas Market is a very popular annual event which sees the High Street completely shut to traffic for the day and then filled with stalls selling anything and everything Christmasy!

All the local schools, both Primary and Secondary have good OFSTED reports and there is a good choice of both State and Private. Please feel free to contact our office for more details although the OFSTED website is the ideal first port of call of course.


A BIT OF HISTORY

Billericay has an facinating history, much of which can be researched in our local museum, the Cater Museum on the High Street.

Billericay was first recorded as Byllerica in 1291 with notable events including a Peasants Revolt ending up in Norsey Woods in 1381 and some of Billericay residents, including Christopher Martin, the ship's victualler, sailing with the Pilgrim Fathers to the 'New World' of America on the Mayflower in 1620 - hence the many representartions of the Mayflower ship in numerous local businesses and the Mayflower High School.

In 1916 Billericay became famous as a result of a Zeppelin airship crashing in flames on the outskirts of the town, down what is now Greens Farm Lane.

A union workhouse was built in 1840 which later, together with additional later built buildings, became St. Andrew's Hospital in the 1930s. The regional plastic surgery and rehabilitation unit was opened here the same year I moved to Billericay, 1973. Many a local will still refer the estate there now to me, as 'one of the houses on the old Burns Unit', although it is in fact Stockfield Manor now.
Only the original workhouse building, including the chapel, and the main gatehouse, now survive, converted now into Grey Lady Place, a residential development of luxury apartments.

The railway came in 1889 and opened up opportunities for landowners to sell plots to Londoners looking to move out of 'The Smoke' into a cleaner rural environment. Both myself and Nick have sold many an old 'plot land' home over the years for redevelopment. A few still remain on the edge of Norsey Woods down Break Egg Hill.

With the housing shortage created by the war time bombing of London, pressure to build was great and the new town of Basildon was given the green light. The 'Green Belt' stopped expansion and the blurring of Basildon and Billericay, hence why lot of the Billericay housing estates were built on abandoned farmland around the town centre and Great Burstead/South Green, where permission was more easily granted.
