Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Enormous semi rural, five bedroom / five reception room residence which upon original construction the property is believed to have been a row of cottages that were subsequently converted to one substantial dwelling in the 1960's. Occupying a third of an acre plot set among hundreds of acres of open farmland the property is often visited by local wildlife such as moor hens, wood peckers, mallards and pheasants and it is easy for one to forget that both Hockley and Rayleigh High Street and Mainline Railway stations are within close proximity, as well as the property being in catchment for the highly regarded Greensward Academy and Fitzwimarc school. Ideal for dual occupancy the property boasts sufficient attributes to easily accommodate two or more families if required as well as offering potential for commercial use - subject to normal consents. London Southend airport can also be reached with relative ease.
