Property Summary

It's not every day that an opportunity to acquire a DETACHED Edwardian home becomes available to buy. This large non-estate characterful home is being offered at a great price when considering the square feet of accommodation

This lovable home has some charming original features, an enormous hallway and landing, and high ceilings measuring up to 8'9. Edwardian-style homes have always proven popular because of the design thought of having fewer but more spacious rooms. The property currently has three reception rooms and a study, but two rooms were once one, running from front to back and could easily be re-instated if desired. All bedrooms upstairs are double size, and in addition, there is a ground-floor shower room/WC and a fantastic modern bathroom upstairs with a shower over the bath.

This most attractive house sits proudly on a plot boasting a sweep-in and out driveway, a 9'8 wide garage and two gardens, with one garden enjoying a south-facing aspect. Our client comfortably stores a motorhome with additional space for at least four/five cars.

Located on the outskirts of Southminster, another huge selling point is the property is only a short walk to Southminster Railway Station, which leads to London Liverpool Street & Southend on Sea.

We can not emphasise the importance of an internal viewing as our photos do not do this home justice. The property has a wonderfully unique feel to it. Literally, from the moment you set foot inside the open curved top porch, you will be dazzled by the mismatch of Minton tiles!

Exterior

As previously mentioned to the front of the property is a sweep in and out driveway with further parking to garage measuring 17’6 x 9‘8 and has loft space into roof. There is a very pretty and well-established D-shaped area to complete the front garden. There is pedestrian access to both flanks leading to the rear gardens.

The rear garden commences with a patio area. Conifers screen the properties behind. The majority is laid to lawn with well established attractive borders.

There are three connecting outbuildings one being a small storage which we assume would have been the old outside loo. There is a garden/potting shed and the largest is currently being used as a garden room which enjoys views of the garden. This garden then extends around providing a further shingled patio area which could be classed as a sun trap at times with its south facing elevation. There is a butler style sink and the remainder of this garden is majority laid to lawn with a log store and pedestrian access to garage. There is also a power point in the garden at the rear.
