Offering no onward chain, this 4 Bedroom Detached House was built by Laing Homes in 1996 as part of 'Tye Lodge', a small and exclusive development of just eleven detached houses in an ideal location just a stone's throw from open countryside and only a short walk from the open space of 'Sun Corner' (Queen Elizabeth Field) and the High Street.

Commuters will also be interested as strolling along Tye Common Road and then Western Road, the Station is an easy 0.8 mile walk and the property also falls within the priority catchment area of Quilters Infants and Junior Schools, both showboating Outstanding OFSTED reports.

The house is original as built and so could do with updating but this is outweighed by its super location and family size accommodation: Hall, ground floor WC Room, Lounge with French Doors to Garden, front Dining Room featuring glass double doors from the Hall and a walk-in Bay, 15ft Kitchen/Breakfast Room and the four first floor bedrooms served by an Ensuite Shower Room to the main bedroom and main Bathroom.

The integral Garage offers conversion possibilities, and the front Drive will take three cars with ease, potentially four.


The Accommodation

HALLWAY

Stairs on the right rise up to the first floor accommodation and under the stairs is the 'tucked out of the way' WC Room.


GROUND FLOOR WC ROOM

Fully tiled and fitted with a white cloakroom suite comprising a close coupled WC and wall mounted basin.


LOUNGE 4.6m x 3.6m (15ft 2' x 11ft 9' max)

At the far end is an ornate Fireplace with what appears to be a capped off gas supply adjacent.

A rear set of UPVC French doors with accompanying side light windows bring in plenty of light and provide direct access to the rear garden.


DINING ROOM 3.9m into the Bay x 2.8m (12ft 10' x 9ft 3')

A fine size Dining Room accessed from the Hall via a set of glazed double doors and with the eyes drawn to the feature front facing walk-in Bay window.


KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 4.6m x 2.8m (15ft x 9ft 4')

Fitted with a comprehensive range of 'Limed Oak' effect units topped with 'Jamocha' (Caribbean stone effect) Granite worktops and incorporating a built-in Hob with an electric fan Oven below and integrated Extractor Hood above.

We noted plumbing for a washing machine in the Garage and so presume the former owner had a freestanding Dishwasher here in the kitchen.

Plenty of light comes through the rear window and part glazed external door that opens to the left sidewalks.


1st FLOOR LANDING

The airing cupboard houses the hot water tank and looking up, a flip down loft hatch provides access to the large loft area.


MASTER BEDROOM 4.9m x 3.25m (16ft x 10ft 8')

A sunny and spacious front facing bedroom with the measurements excluding a 1.3m (4ft 3') wide built-in Double Wardrobe and an adjacent 1.1m (3ft 9') built in Double Wardrobe with a single door.


ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM 2.6m x 1.7m (8ft 5' x 5ft 5')

This well-proportioned shower room features an Aqualisa corner shower along with a close coupled WC and basin with pedestal.

Fully tiled, this bathroom also has a chrome towel radiator, a nifty built-in shelved storage cupboard and a front facing obscure glass window.


BEDROOM TWO 3.8m x 2.6m (12ft 4' x 8ft 5')'

A rear facing double bedroom with a large 1.6m (5ft 3') wide built-in double wardrobe.

The focal point is the Aquaestil Aquamaxx ‘Super reinforced‘ Spa Bath (not tested), with the balance of the white suite a close coupled WC and basin with pedestal.

A recess opposite the bath houses the mirror fronted bathroom cabinet, with there also a white towel radiator, shaver socket and ceramic tiling to the walls and floor.


EXTERIOR - FRONT

The block paved Drive will take three cars with ease, plus we think the flower bed under the dining room window could provide a fourth if required. There is gated access on both sides round to the Garden.


GARAGE 5m x 2.6m (16ft 6' x 8ft 5')

The integral garage appears to have plumbing for a washing machine at the far end.

Upon the wall is a Worcester Greenstar Gas Boiler and a part glazed external UPVC door brings in natural light, as well as providing direct access to the right sidewalk.

We also note high on the wall, the consumer unit, which we would predict is original as per its 1990s build date.


EXTERIOR - GARDEN

42ft long, the garden has a large full width block paved patio, perfect for relaxing and alfresco dining during the warm summer months.

The balance is laid to lawn with decorative borders and a potting shed in the top left hand corner provides useful tool storage.

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.
