Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Develop your dream home!

The nucleus is already here via a detached chalet on 0.84 acre, with a 57ft plot width at the building line and 440ft depth of grounds, situated on one of Billericay's most prestigious roads and backing directly on to Norsey Woods Nature Reserve

Although of course there are a number of prestigious roads in the town, it is fair to say Norsey Road is the most recognised as `the` desirable road of Billericay to live on, especially if you back on to the Woods, as this property does.

Norsey Woods itself covers some 165 acres and is a Designated Ancient Monument, Site of Special Scientific Interest and part of Billericay`s history for well over 400 years.

A rear gate provides direct access to Norsey Drive, a woodland walk from the Rangers Station at the entrance, leading right through the woods.

The existing property was built as a double fronted 1930`s bungalow, which over the years has been extended both to the sides, rear and into the roof space, evolving it into the hugely loved family chalet you see today.

The current family have had a wonderful 39 years here and their grandchildren love the house and garden as much as their parents did, when they were growing up there.

The property is now looking forward to the next generation of owners, who will probably look to enlarge it substantially, as have the neighbouring houses either side.

From the street, the deep and widening plot behind is deceptive, so if you are looking for a Norsey Road address and are open to developing your dream home, then this is a house worthy of an internal inspection.

Having both advised on and sold many new and much-enlarged larger homes over the years, we can advise you on ideas of how to move forward with any enlargement plans, as well as being able to put you in touch with local architects and builders if required.


THE ACCOMMODATION


ENTRANCE PORCH

The well lit, central projecting front brick porch has a quarry tiled floor and glazed door leading through to:


HALLWAY

25ft (7.6m) long the hall`s 8ft 6" (2.62m) high ceilings (as found in all the original ground floor rooms) give an even greater impression of space.


LOUNGE 34ft x 12ft 6 max (10.36m x 3.84m max)

The combination of the original front and rear bedrooms, together with a further additional 6ft extension has resulted in a lovely long, dual aspect front-to-back Lounge, with a feature Cast iron Fireplace and retaining the original picture rail and side facing Oriel window

Plenty of light floods in the wide 'lead light' front, curved bay window, together with the rear double doors and their accompanying windows and the aforementioned Oriel window.


FRONT SITTING ROOM 15ft 3" x 11ft 2" (4.66m x 3.41m)

The original `Front Room` and thus with the original brick fireplace providing a warm focal point. The Vendors will be leaving the feature gas `Stove` which nicely combines the look of a real log burner with the convenience and ease of a modern gas fire.

Offering a cosy, classic atmosphere, this room also retains the original picture rails, high ceiling, curved front bay window and we like the `pocket door system`, where the double sliding doors slide into the walls, thus hiding the doors within the wall cavity.


DINING ROOM 18ft 2" x 10ft (5.54m x 3.04m)

Being back-to-back with the front Sitting Room, this room also enjoys a feature fireplace, again with a feature `wood burner`.

The old column radiator and herring bone style wood flooring gives added personality to this room, which also has a set of double doors - like the lounge - which open out onto the Veranda.


KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 16ft 9" x 8ft 4" (5.15m x 2.56m)

The Dark Oak effect units incorporate a Breakfast Bar/Peninsular unit, with spaces between cabinets for a Range Cooker (with Chimney style Extractor Hood above) and Dishwasher.

The rear window enjoys a very pleasant outlook over the garden and beyond. The floor is tiled and this room also has an old fashioned column radiator.


UTILITY ROOM 5ft 4" x 5ft (1.64m x 1.52m)

Nice and bright from the front window and circular feature window overlooking the side, this useful little room houses the washing machine and also the Vaillant Ecotec plus boiler serving the gas central heating system.


SHOWER ROOM 8ft x 5ft 9" (2.43m x 1.79m)

Neatly tucked away in the extension behind the hall, this modern, fully tiled, white Shower Room has a semi-recessed Basin, back-to-wall WC with concealed cistern, adjacent Bidet and a 3ft x 2ft Shower Cubicle.

Natural daylight comes in through the rear window and there`s a chrome heated towel radiator and Shaver Socket too.


1st FLOOR LANDING

Another nice and bright area having a rear facing window enjoying a pleasant outlook over the garden and woods beyond, and access to the Loft.


MASTER BEDROOM 14ft 5" x 12ft 6" (4.41m x 3.84m)

With nice light decor this room enjoys a splendid outlook over the garden and woods beyond through the big 8ft wide window.


BEDROOM TWO 14ft 1" x 10ft 6" (4.29m x 3.23m)

A front double bedroom with built-in eves storage.


BEDROOM THREE 13ft 10" x 10ft 6" (3.99m x 3.23m)

Another front double bedroom with built-in eves storage.


BEDROOM FOUR 8ft x 7ft 6" (2.43m x 2.31m)

Another rear room so enjoying that sylvan outlook and with the measurements excluding a little alcove.


BATHROOM 10ft x 6ft 2" (3.04m x 1.88m)

With a side facing window with obscure glass, the bathroom has been fitted with a white `Heritage` suite and complimented with a chrome period style heated towel rail.
The airing cupboard houses the hot water cylinder.


FRONT

Set back from the road, partly obscured by high hedging, the large front provides parking for numerous cars.

GARAGE 24ft 6" x 16ft 1" (7.49m x 4.90m)

With both an up and over front garage door and rear courtesy door, the garage is also well lit by a large 8ft wide window.


REAR

VERANDA 29ft x 10ft 1" (8.83m x 3.07m)

Double doors from both the Living Room and Dining Room both open out to the huge, wide Veranda, an outside Room in itself in the Summer Months. Blurring the traditional boundaries of indoor and outdoor living this timber constructed sheltered space acts as a cocoon away from the elements in which to retreat, relax and still enjoy the outdoors. The owners `cover in` the sides during the cold weather to give almost all year round use.

Wandering the grounds is a delight, with the beautifully maintained formal garden changing to woodland as it seamlessly blends with Norsey Woods behind. Numerous landscaped seating areas/zones offering a variety of views and surroundings to relax and unwind in

The current owners are very keen gardeners, which is clear to see, with the many species of plants and trees. There are of course far too many to list but we were impressed with the look and condition of the Pineapple, Crab Apple and Magnolia to name but a few.

We think putting up high wrought iron railings across the back boundary to make the woodland child secure - maybe a few strategically placed camera`s? - could open the woodland up to something magical if you have younger children. Subject to planning permission a luxury treehouse might have a possibility, or perhaps an amazing outdoor adventure playground?

As it is, the current woodland has a shed and signs of log-cutting a-plenty, plenty of fuel for a wood burning stove!
