Having benefited from recent internal improvements this popular style of four-bedroom house with an en-suite shower room, is situated on the sought-after Arundel Heights development just opposite Stock Brook Manor Country Club and conveniently placed within the well regarded Buttsbury and Mayflower School area.

Internally, the property enjoys a stunning solid Walnut floor to the ground floor living space with a contemporary feel to the lounge and high-end fittings installed to both the futuristic cloakroom and the statement family shower room.

The cloakroom with under floor heating, a sensor light, sensor flush and sensor taps will make it quite possibility one of the most high-tech WC`s you will encounter.
The first floor fully tiled shower room with discreet LED feature lighting is equally swish, boasting underfloor heating and a quality Duravit suite that includes walk-in low-profile dual shower, vanity basin and wall hung WC.

Together with an entrance hall this property also enjoys the convenience a central hall which enables access between each ground floor room. Having the lounge positioned to the front means both the sizeable dining room and the kitchen which needs refitting, is at the rear of the house and therefore offers the space and perfect opportunity to create a full width kitchen/diner/family room that would open onto the south westerly rear garden.


ACCOMMODATION AS FOLLOWS...

ENTRANCE HALL

The moment the door opens your eye is drawn to the Walnut flooring, the rich colour gives an immediate quality feel and this flooring runs through each of the ground floor living areas. Built within the wall of this hall is a thoughtful recessed cloaks and shoe storage space, a sensor light is also fitted and activates on entry and a door then opens to the lounge.


LOUNGE 4.8m x 4.33m > 3.1m

The Walnut flooring continues into this generously sized front facing reception room which has dimmable inset downlighters, two ‘Bisque` pepper pot designer radiators and a feature Limestone fire surround with a suspended pebbled gas fire to complete the pleasing contemporary look.


CENTRAL HALLWAY

As usual the hall, stairs and landing gets left until the end of any decorating project, with this one, at least the Walnut floor has already been fitted. The first floor landing window and the rear doors of the house, provide a good degree of natural light while panel doors lead into the cloakroom and both rear facing rooms.


GROUND FLOOR CLOAKROOM

What a room this is, a vision of future wc`s! Having been meticulously planned there is a quality Duravit white suite that incorporates a wall hung wc with a sensor operated flush and a wall mounted hand basin with sensor taps. In addition, fully tiled walls ensure no decorating will ever be required, a tiled floor with under floor heating gives a naturally warm feeling and automatic sensor operated LED downlighters will ensure the children don`t leave the light on.


DINING ROOM 3.63m x 3.35m

This is larger than the average dining room and can often be used as a playroom or even opened up to the kitchen to create one large full width kitchen/living space. Currently enjoying sliding doors leading out to the garden, this room also has Walnut flooring and two Acova vertical column radiators.


KITCHEN 3.4m x 2.41m > 3.23m

Its fair to say its probably time for this kitchen with original base and wall units to be refitted. Within the current plan there is an integral fridge/freezer, a built-in oven and hob and a space for washing machine.

With this room backing onto the south facing garden and having the adjoining the dining room, you would have the perfect excuse and an ideal opportunity to create a lovely kitchen/diner family room that would measure approx. 6m across and have direct access onto the garden.


LANDING

There`s a good-sized landing in these houses and they are "L" shaped in design with window to the side to bring natural light in. There is an access point to the loft where the pressurised water system has been installed, and panel doors that lead to each room.


BEDROOM ONE 4.23m > 3.09m x 3.06m

This main front facing bedroom has two built in storage cupboards with a central door to the en-suite and space to entrance area of the room for more fitted wardrobes.


EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM

With a window to the side, this part tiled shower room has a fitted white suite that comprises a low level wc, a pedestal wash basin and shower cubicle.

BEDROOM TWO 3.5m x 2.6m

With a front facing window this second bedroom has built in wardrobes and wood style laminate flooring.


BEDROOM THREE 3.58m > 2.84m x 2.57m

Looking out to the rear, this third bedroom with wood laminate flooring, could still accommodate a double bed and also has a built-in wardrobe with mirrored doors and grey gloss internal fittings.


BEDROOM FOUR/NURSERY 2.36m > 1.79m xx 2.44m

This bedroom is currently used a study and is positioned to the rear of the house.


FAMILY SHOWER ROOM

Just like the cloakroom this shower room with a rear window and curved chrome heated towel rail, has been turned into a statement room.

Again, this one has been fully tiled using 600 x 600 floor tiles with under floor heating and features LED lighting to the ceiling and recessed lighting to the shelving areas built within the walls. The fitted Duravit suite consists of a wall hung push button wc, a wall mounted wash basin with vanity cupboard and a walk-in low-profile dual shower with a rain head and hand attachment.

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.
