Tenure: Freehold

FIVE BEDROOM THREE RECEPTION ROOM DETACHED CHARACTER HOUSE situated in this semi-rural location just off Harrow Road, North Benfleet.

Internally the property offers many character features; with many rooms having feature beamed ceilings and walls and latch doors. There are three ground floor reception rooms plus utility room, porch, ground floor WC and kitchen. The first floor accommodation provides five bedrooms and family bathroom.

Externally the property boasts a frontage of approximately 160' with three garden areas; rear garden (approx. 45' wide) with excellent views over fields which opens to 'side garden 1' to the west of the main house (approx. 55' x 60'). With large Nissen Hut to side which has vehicular access to School Lane - and although in need of attention- provides much potential for future use as an outbuilding. 'Side garden 2' (approx. 65' x 60') provides off road parking behind double five-bar gates and two detached garages. The remainder of this garden is largely lawned and has an established vegetable garden and fruit trees.

There are just three character properties in School Lane; which is located just off Harrow Road (both now with excellent road surfaces.) The position allows easy access to local transport links to London (A127 and A13) but still retains the feeling of being in a rural setting.

DIRECTIONS From Pound Lane, Bowers Gifford continue through traffic calming chicane, continue past Burnt Mills Road (located on left hand side) and someway after turn right onto Harrow Road (before reaching the A127), continue on Harrow Road for approximately 0.4 miles and although not sign posted - turn right into School Lane (the only made up road on right hand side), continue past the converted School House where 'Hall Cottage' will be located on left hand side.
