It is a rarity for one of this small collection of Stock brick two-bedroom properties come available. Being pleasantly situated within a brick paved Mews and enjoying views of Stockbrook Manor Golf Course, this sought-after style of house with a ground floor cloakroom, make lovely homes for both young and old.

As mentioned, these are a timelessly popular design, the first floor with its newly fitted carpet, provides two generously sized double bedrooms which are now served by a shower room which was originally built with a bath.

The ground floor with wood effect flooring is equally well proportioned enjoying a decent sized hallway, a ground floor cloakroom, a front facing kitchen with appliances and a generous lounge boasting a window and door leading onto the garden.

At the end of the lawn garden there is a door into the garage, this can of course accommodate a car, but the loft area may be more likely to become a storage space for garden accessories!

Additional points of this home worth noting are gas radiator central heating, UPVC double glazed windows and the added appeal of having no onward chain so it can therefore provide a buyer with a speedy transaction subject to the legal process.


ACCOMMODATION AS FOLLOWS..


HALLWAY

These two-bedroom houses enjoy a very traditional entrance hall often associated with larger properties. This one with its wood effect flooring and the newly carpeted stairs rising to the first floor, has panel doors opening to the downstairs WC, the lounge/diner and the kitchen.


CLOAKROOM

What a fantastic plus point to have in a two-bedroom house. This cloakroom with a front facing window has a white suite consisting of a low-level WC, a wall mounted basin and wood effect flooring extending from the hall.


KITCHEN 3 m x 1.8 m (10‘x 6‘)

The front window sits above the sink and white gloss units with rolled edge tops are fitted to 3 walls of the kitchen. The wood flooring continues from the hallway and there is an integrated fridge freezer, a built-in oven and hob with cooker hood and a space for a washing machine which we understand will remain. In addition, a corner cupboard houses the gas boiler and although there is a door from the hall its not usual for this to be removed.


LOUNGE/DINER 5.4 m x 3.7 m (17'7 x 12‘)

The wood effect flooring continues from the hall and into this room which has a window and door onto the garden and a large store cupboard under the stairs. You will see from its shape; this room was designed in such a way to permanently accommodate a small dining table and chairs as well as sofas.


LANDING

The newly fitted carpet is throughout the first floor with the exception of the bathroom. On the landing there is an airing cupboard with a hot tank and water pump, an access point to the high pitch loft and panel doors to each of the rooms.


BEDROOM ONE 3.88 max reducing to 3 m x 3.67 m maximum ( 12'7 > 9'9 x 12')

Being positioned at the front of the house, this good size master bedroom with a large bulkhead, commands views of the adjoining Stock Brook Manor golf course from its front window.


BEDROOM TWO 3.65 m x 2.63 m ( 11'10 x 8'6)

The second double bedroom is yet another feature that makes these homes a popular choice amongst buyers young and old.


SHOWER ROOM

Fitted with a three-piece suite with tiled walls and vinyl flooring this shower room has a curved corner shower cubicle, low-level WC and a pedestal wash basin.


OUTSIDE


FRONT

The front of the property has been brick paved to provide a low maintenance area which could also provide enough space to park a small car. It is also worth noting there is an outside water tap should you ever want to wash your own car.


REAR GARDEN

This garden is unoverlooked from the rear and commences with a patio area while the remainder is mainly lawn with shrubs to the sides. To the rear of the garden is a rather convenient door which leads into the garage.


GARAGE 5.1 m x 2.54 m (16'9 x 8'3)

Accessed via the neighbouring road Arundel Way, this garage has an up and over door, power and light connected and a designated parking space in front.

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.
