A Detached Bungalow With Stabling & Paddock
1.68 ACRES (stms) - Situated in a semi rural location at the edge of this pretty village, yet close to the popular town of Hockley and Rochford, both having train stations and good access to road links, this extended property provides comfortable and flexible accommodation. Previously there was planning for a more traditional pitched and tiled roof (2001) and although now lapsed, we believe this could be granted again without too much of an issue. The current owners have a small holding number for the property which will remain and the stables make it suitable for equestrian use.
The bungalow is approached over its own private drive and the front entrance door opening to an ‘L’ shaped hallway providing access to most of the rooms. The lounge has dual aspect windows to the front and side and a feature stone built wall which previously has a chimney which has now been capped, but easy to reinstate. A door at the rear leads to the large 20’ kitchen, dining room which has an extensive range of fitted units, tiled flooring and window to the rear overlooking the gardens and grounds. A door opens to the rear lean-to conservatory which doubles as a utility room having plumbing for washing machines etc. plus double to the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a good sized double bedroom which could also be a playroom or office. Doors off the hallway lead to three further double bedrooms and a modern wet room.
The property is set back off this quiet lane and screened by mature conifers trees to the front with double timber farm gates opening to a large concrete hardstanding with parking and turning space for several vehicles. The front gardens are mature having trees, shrubs and a lawned area. Double gated to the side open to a further concrete driveway which leads to the rear, passing the private lawned garden which has a variety of mature trees and shrubs. Off the drive is a large timber garden shed and a poultry coup. The drive continues to the stables and paddock.
There is a block of four stables, block built on a concrete base with a concrete apron to the front and a lean-to hay store adjoining to the rear. To the front of the stables are two small paddock areas. A separate block of two pony stables are located behind the main stable block.
Paddocks & Land
There is one large paddock having fencing and mature hedging, and in total, the grass/grazing area is around 1.2 acres, subject to a measured survey.
