Tenure: Freehold

Offered to the market for the first time in 47 years, this superbly situated detached, three bedroom property stands in an elevated position at the western edge of Epping Forest in the locality of High Beach. The generously proportioned open plan, split level ground floor, three good sized bedrooms and manageable gardens make this a most desirable home. Being one of relatively few properties in this semi-rural location, the opportunity to purchase here should not be missed. There are lovely views across countryside and forest into the far distance both to the front and rear. The property would now benefit from modernisation and improvement. The potential for extension and reconfiguration (subject to necessary consents) offers a new owner huge potential to update this house in their own style and add value.

The location is just two miles from Loughton and about 12 miles from Central London, as the crow flies. Transport links are excellent with access to the Central Line underground service at Loughton (30 minutes to the city, 45 minutes to the West End) and the mainline over ground service direct to Liverpool Street takes just 28 minutes from Chingford Station. Stansted airport can be reached in under 30 minutes and Heathrow in about an hour. Access to the motorway network is easy via junction 26 on the M25.

There are excellent schools for all age groups in the vicinity.

The whole of Epping Forest is publically accessible for walks, cycling, horse riding and general enjoyment of an outdoor lifestyle. Very close by is an excellent riding stables and the locality boasts no less than six public houses within walking distance. High Beech Golf Course (alternative spelling of Beech often used locally) is literally across the road. All routine daily needs are catered for within a few minutes’ drive with most major supermarkets represented together with a wide range of independent shops and businesses. Westfield Stratford City and the Olympic Park are 20 minutes away by tube plus several access points to the 10,000 acre Lea Valley Park, which includes the Olympic White Water Centre, are within a few minutes’ drive.
