Full description

Tenure: Freehold

When the current owners bought this exceptional property some 13 years ago they had a vision and a dream to transform it into the fabulous home that it is today.

Although the property is over 200 years old they have managed to strike the perfect balance between old and new by adding such features as en-suites, vaulted ceilings and skylight windows, whilst still retaining the properties exceptional character.

Family time can be spent in the kitchen/diner and conservatory while more formal dining and relaxing with guests can be enjoyed in the semi-open plan lounge and dining area.

The feature chimney breast fireplace neatly zones the lounge and dining area making this a wonderfully social space perfect for hosting dinner parties.

The ground floor bedroom with en-suite ensures that guests feel welcome to stay over on a Saturday evening, but be warned the moment they step into your garden on Sunday morning to enjoy breakfast, they won’t want to leave.

It is such a private and secluded position that you really do feel like you are in the middle of the countryside and it’s the perfect place to relax the day away.

Although in a semi-rural position the property is within a few minutes of bustling historic Billericay that also has a mainline railway station offering fast and frequent services into London Liverpool Street station.

What the Owner says:

When we bought the property around 13 years ago we had big ideas on how to modernise and transform it into the home that it is today.
Originally the village store and post office, we altered the façade and position of the main entrance door to give the home even greater kerb appeal than when we first viewed it and it was the approach up the drive that originally captured us as you are set back from the road so far and one of our favourite parts of the home is actually standing at the back of the garden and admiring the rear elevation which makes us realise how lucky we are to live in a home like this.
We have added many modern touches to the property including the side addition that incorporates a bedroom and en-suite to the ground floor and as you enter the property the vaulted roof is a nice feature with natural light flooding in from the skylight window.
All the bathrooms have been refitted in recent years and the kitchen enjoys granite work surfaces and if you enjoy the great outdoors, Little Burstead Golf Course is just around the corner where during New Year celebrations you can take a stroll and enjoy the festivities.
The home being in such a private and secluded position it is incredible to think we are only a few minutes from Billericay town centre and if you work in the city living here really does offer the best of both worlds. A semi-rural life style great for the commuter
