5 bedroom detached house for saleNorsey Road, Billericay, Essex, CM11 1DD
Full descriptionEnjoying an enviable address on the prestigious Norsey Road opposite multi-million pound properties opposite, this large extended house offers 2,522sq.ft of accommodation, arranged over two floors and including a 14ft wide Garage.
The lovely rear Garden measures 55ft x 51ft with spacious internal accommodation including a 14ft Hall, 18ft Lounge, Dining Room, Family Room, Study, Conservatory, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Ground Floor WC Room, 5 Bedrooms and two Bathrooms - one huge and easily convertable into two, as we think it originally was.
The High Street and Mainline Railway Station are within walking distance (around a mile away) with access to 165 acres of Norsey Woods just a few minutes` walk up the road, on the opposite side of the street.
If education is a high priority, buyers may like to know the property falls within catchment for the highly regarded Buttsbury & Mayflower Schools.
There is upvc double glazing with Georgian glazing bars and Gas Central Heating.
The side extension created a large front Garage, with a corridor between this and the Rear Family Room incorporating a full height brick Inglenook Fireplace.
This compliments the balance of the ground floor which showboats pretty good living space already.
Upstairs the original upstairs is now laid out as 3 bedrooms and a huge Bathroom with doors accessed from the landing and the Master Bedroom.
Moving walls created a 5ft wide, 14ft walk-through connecting the new Extension Wing, itself incorporating two further bedrooms with a central Shower Room serving them.
PORCH With the 2 external walls essentially timber and glass, this is a very bright, recessed porch with the Karndean flooring extending through to the Hall.
HALL 14ft x 5ft 2" (4.26m x 1.57m)
A spacious welcoming area with the ceiling smooth plastered and finished with coving, as found throughout the house excepting those rooms with beamwork to the ceiling.
CLOAKROOM 9ft 2" x 3ft 9" (2.79m x 1.14)
This WC Room surprises you a bit with its size. Although the white shell suite is a little dated, it`s easily refitted and the room is big, bright and the ornate beamwork gives it a bit of personality.
LOUNGE 18ft (20ft into the walk-in Bay) x 12ft 8" (5.48m x 3.86m)
The Amtico floor gives warmth and character to this spacious room - as you can see, big enough for 2 sofas and a snuggle chair with ease. The Fireplace provides the focal point and a set of glazed Double Doors open through to the Dining Room behind.
DINING ROOM 11ft 9" x 10ft 1" (3.58m x 3.07m)
Again with Amtico flooring and with a full height built-in cupboard providing useful storage.
STUDY 9ft x 7ft 5" (2.74m x 2.26m)
A fine size Study/Home Office with a surprisingly good size understairs cupboard in the corner.
FAMILY ROOM 15ft 8" x 10ft 10" (4.77m x 3.30m)
Part of the extension this versatile room features a full height brick Inglenook Fireplace and looks out over the rear garden. We think a set of French Doors opening out to the garden would work very well here.
CONSERVATORY 16ft 1" x 9ft 6" (4.90m x 2.89m)
Accessed via a set of glazed Double Doors from the Dining Room, this big glass extension has feature flooring and a vaulted ceiling with a cooling fan for summer. A radiator gives this room all-year-round use.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 17ft 3" x 12ft 5" (5.25m x 3.78m)
Fitted with cream early Shaker style units, this is a good size family kitchen with plenty of room behind the brick pier for a breakfast table.
Two rear facing windows and a part glazed door make it nice and bright. Appliances include a NEFF Gas Hob with a Canopy Extractor Hood above, NEFF Oven and a Bosch Dishwasher. Like the lounge, this room has two radiators making early morning breakfast time nice and warm during the winter months.
Return staircase from Hall to:
1st FLOOR LANDING
The window on the half landing lights the stairwell nicely and the built-in airing cupboard provides plenty of linen/towel storage. Access to Loft. A large 16ft 7" x 5ft (5.05m x 1.52m) area connects the original landing to the extension `wing`.
MASTER BEDROOM 15ft 4" into the fitted wardrobes x 14ft 9" (4.67m x 4.49m)
Attractive light decor has given this principle bedroom a great feel of space and a range of fitted bedroom furniture provides superb storage. Being rear facing, this room enjoys a pleasant outlook over the garden and beyond.
BATHROOM/ENSUITE 12ft 9" x 8ft 6" max (3.88m x 2.59m)
A giant of a bathroom.
Lavish and decadent, with the two windows this was clearly originally two rooms. So, if a private Ensuite and separate Family Bathroom is sought, it would be a cinch to convert it to such.
With the kids long since flown the next and the property having a further separate Shower Room anyway, the current owner (who has been here nearly 30 years) decided on an opulent affair, complete with the ultimate in luxury, a deep and spacious, freestanding slipper bath, providing a stunning focal point.
In addition, there is a glass shower cubicle and white sanitary ware complimented by fully tiled walls and a `Savoy` traditional style combination Towel Rail and Radiator.
BEDROOM TWO 14ft x 9ft 4" (4.26m x 2.84m) (11ft 2" into the walk-in dormer)
Also overlooking the rear garden, this room has a 3ft 6" x 3ft recess in the corner to take a double wardrobe with ease.
BEDROOM THREE 10ft x 9ft 6" (3.04m x 2.89m) minimum (excluding a 4ft x 3ft recess for the door and two built-in wardrobes of 7ft x 2ft combined)
With cream walls and Amtico wood effect flooring, this double bedroom enjoys an equally pleasant view as the rear rooms. This time overlooking the impressive homes opposite with much space between given the front drive here, the road and the gated deep front drives opposite.
BEDROOM FOUR 14ft x 8ft minimum (4.47m x 2.43m) (10ft 8" into dormer)
Another double bedroom and like bedroom two, having a 3ft 6" x 3ft recess for a wardrobe.
BEDROOM FIVE 11ft x 7ft 7" (3.35m x 2.31m)
This good size single bedroom has a built-in wardrobe in the corner with a further cupboard above.
SHOWER ROOM 6ft 9" x 5ft 6" (2.05m x 1.67m)
Fully tiled, this useful second shower room has a white suite and a corner shower cubicle.
GARAGE 15ft 1" x 14ft 2" (4.59m x 4.31m)
With an electric up and over door, the garage has a side facing window, power sockets and a light.
Door through to:
INTERNAL LOBBY 14ft x 2ft 8" (4.26m x 0.81m)
This long space has a 3ft 6" x 2ft 8" recess at one end for a washing machine and a door opening to the side way. A door the other end opens through to the Family Room.
Please bear in mind this lobby was taken from the back strip of the garage, so if a longer garage is needed, it could easily be claimed back.
GARDENERS LOO 6ft x 2ft 8" (1.82m x 0.81m)
Whereas the Lobby`s recess is one side of the outward projecting Inglenook Fireplace of the Family Room, this is formed from the other with the door on the outside wall, thus accessed from the garden.
Complete with a low level WC and hand wash basin, this is a useful boon for gardeners or the kids, wet from their paddling pools etc. The Owner mentioned that It has also made the perfect extra loo for BBQ's and parties, as along with the main internal ground floor WC, this makes 2 ground floor loos.
We think this would also make an ideal wet room/shower area for muddy dogs following walks in Norsey Woods just down the road.
FRONT The expansive area of block paving provides an In/Out Drive and in turn parking for several cars.
REAR GARDEN 55ft x 51ft (16.76m x 15.54m) and feels bigger.
Nicely laid out and featuring a 20ft x 12ft 8" (6.09m x 3.86m) area of raised Dining Decking. There is potential access both sides with one side currently having a shed down it, providing great storage for all things garden.
