The windows are double glazed, a modern Vaillant Ecotec Boiler serves the Gas Central Heating and the 36ft Garden is very secluded. The integral Garage provides useful storage and the potential for a garage conversion to more accommodation if desired.


The Accommodation:

ENTRANCE HALL

A white UPVC entrance door gives access into a separate enclosed area where there is door into the ground floor cloakroom and a door opening into the main reception hall space.


CLOAKROOM
Two front facing windows makes this a particularly light and airy `small room` of the house. White tiling extends to the lower wall level and a white suite consists of a close coupled WC and a sleek wall mounted hand basin.


RECEPTION HALL

Flowing from the front door down into the centre of the house, this reception hall enjoys a most practical wood effect Amtico flooring that also extends into both the cloakroom and the kitchen. The hallway widens where the stairs rise to the first floor (with a cupboard under the stairs) and a side window brings in natural lighting. Doors from the hallway then lead into the lounge and the kitchen.


LOUNGE 20ft 6` x 13ft 10` (6.25m x 4.2m)

Extending across the full width of the house, this carpeted lounge/diner is flooded with light through the very large main rear window and a set of Double Doors with accompanying full height side light windows opening out to the garden.

The feature fireplace incorporates a beautiful Portuguese Limestone fire surround with an inset electric fire, giving a focal point and that cosy homely feel during the winter months.


KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 14ft 10` x 8ft 4` (4.5m x 2.54m)

The wood effect Amtico flooring continues seamlessly into this front facing kitchen which in addition to inset downlighting, has a thoughtfully designed range of Wood grain finish Cream `Shaker` style units with wood block worktops and matching upstands to 3 walls giving a stylish look.

Within the worktops is an inset white sink unit with swan neck mixer tap and within the cabinets that include 2 glazed display units, there are larder cupboards, deep pan drawers, two side-by-side built-in NEFF Electric ovens (one a Combination Oven/Microwave), a NEFF electric Induction Hob with a glass and stainless steel Chimney style Extractor Hood above, NEFF integrated Dishwasher and a double space for a side-by-side American style Fridge and Freezer. There are also two recesses for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

In addition to the many fitted cupboards, there is also a matching wood block peninsular breakfast bar with spaces on either side for stools.


FIRST FLOOR LANDING

On the half landing a side window brings natural lighting and from the main landing area there are doors leading to each of the first floor rooms.

BEDROOM THREE 10ft 10` x 10ft (3.3m x 3m)

As you can tell from the measurements, this is another double bedroom which looks out to the rear. As we all know, it is quite a rarity to find a three-bedroom home with three double bedrooms.

Being fully tiled, this front facing bathroom with a chrome towel radiator and inset down lighters has a fitted white suite has a modern feel. The suite consists of an Beech effect Vanity unit, back-to-wall pushbutton WC and a Bath with a separate shower over.

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.
