Originally a bungalow, the property was significantly enlarged to an exacting build quality by the current Vendor in the 1990's and extended again in later years to now boast spacious and lavish accommodation, centred around the hugely impressive, double height Hall with its Galleried Landing.
Three sets of Double Doors off the Hall open in turn to a 19ft x 17ft Rear Lounge and twin front Reception Rooms - both 17ft x 15ft 7 into their walk-in Bays. In addition, a 15ft Dining Room sits next to the 17ft Kitchen, lending itself to create a large open plan affair if desired and off the Kitchen, a large 11ft Utility Room does for all things laundry.
The Split Oak Staircase flows up to the Galleried Landing with its large picture window within the central Gable. The four bedrooms occupy each corner upstairs, the Extended Master Suite enjoying the whole of the side extension over the Garage which also includes a huge walk-through Dressing Room, large Ensuite Shower Room and a private Balcony. Two further Bathrooms serve the other 3 bedrooms - a stylish Ensuite and the grand Main Bathroom with its sunken Bath and separate Shower.
Attached to the main House is the superb Swimming Pool Complex. This incorporates a 30ft x 15ft heated Pool, a large Changing room with shower and an adjoining WC Room. Plus up the far end a Bar will keep the drinks flowing and beyond this is a fully equipped Kiitchen, ideal for grand scale outside entertaining.
Ramsden Bellhouse Village itself is highly sought after, with an active and friendly community plus the neighbouring town of Billericay has a mainline link to the city (London Liverpool Street in 35 minutes).

THE GROUNDS IN GENERAL
We thought we would let the photos of the 1.48 acres do the talking but suffice to say the owner keeps everything well manicured and the huge wide Patio with plenty of room for tables and chairs or rattan sofa sets demands big Summer parties and Family gatherings.
Please note we have not tested any apparatus, fixtures, fittings, or services. Interested parties must undertake their own investigation into the working order of these items. All measurements are approximate and photographs provided for guidance only.
A bit of history: At the beginning of the 20th century, Homesteads Ltd of the Strand in London bought the estate of 'Ramsden Hall' along with part of the 'Ramsden Park' estate, and the village of Ramsden Bellhouse as we know it now, was born.
It was originally built as a 'bungalow estate' with only a few detached houses dotted here and there. There were several different optional designs - I have a few prints of the original flyers which make interesting reading - with prices from £275!!
Many of the houses you see now in the village started life as these bungalows and have been greatly extended out of all recognition, although a few retain the angled front room, which helps identify them.
Most of the plots were an acre, but some buyers bought two or more to create Smallholdings, hence why there are a real mixture of plot sizes throughout the village.
