Full description

Tenure: Freehold

'The Firs' is a very unique home with an interesting history. It enjoys an exceptional plot and location with beautiful walled gardens and direct access to Navestock Heath, which provides the house with far reaching rural views. For much of the 19th Century there was a school on this site, eventually ceasing in the mid 1940’s, hereafter the school was demolished and the bricks were reclaimed in 1956 and 'The Firs' was constructed. The property has been extended to 1900 square feet, and now has a ground floor annexe which at present is used as a master bedroom suite but could simply be converted to independent ground floor accommodation for a relative. This house has planning permission to create a larger family home. The current accommodation is spacious and flexible and the location, although rural with panoramic views, is very convenient with the shops and rail links at Brentwood, Romford and Epping plus the M25 and M11 all close by.
