an exciting opportunity to purchase an exceptional Brand New Home, currently under construction, providing an impressive 5,000 sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors.

Set behind railings and remote controlled electronic entrance gates with a video entry system, this stunning luxury residence stands on a plot of approx half an acre, with a South Facing garden, within one of the sought after private roads of Ramsden Bellhouse village.

The dimensions are generous to say the least with one of the four reception rooms being a dedicated cinema room.

The remainder of the ground floor living rooms all evolve around the impressive reception hall and are accessed by double doors to create an optional open plan feel and to ensure the natural light will flow throughout.

Taking pride of place at the rear of this house, is the huge Kitchen/Family room with bi-fold doors opening out to the garden and a adjoining Utility Room with Pantry.
At this stage, there is still the option for clients to have input on the kitchen units to be fitted in.

The first floor of this brand new home has concrete floors (greater sound insulation and allowing easier future wall reconfiguration) and continues to deliver in every area.

All of the five large double bedrooms have En-suite Bath/Shower Rooms with Villeroy Boch suites and Hansgrohe taps.

In addition to the en-suites, the two principle bedrooms have walk in Dressing Rooms and Balconies.

RAMSDEN BELLHOUSE is situated to the east of Billericay. The village has a great local Convenience store incorporating a post office, with further shops and the highly regarded Downham Church of England primary school to be found in the adjacent village of Ramsden Heath.

The nearby town of Billericay offers a comprehensive range of amenities including a thriving high street, good schools (both state and private) and recreational facilities together with a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street (35 minutes, Monday-Friday).

Within easy reach is Chelmsford which boasts the renowned King Edward Grammar School, Chelmsford County High School for girls and New Hall Convent school.


Beneath the catslide roof, the recessed entrance is via a pair of clear varnished Solid Oak doors with glazed panels leading through to:

RECEPTION HALL: 29ft x 19ft 6" (8.83m x 5.94m)
