Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Building plot in private gated close.


The site is currently occupied by a substantial house of around 7,000 sq ft constructed in the 1960s and the planning permission provides for demolition of this property and the construction of two substantial Georgian-style houses, each extending to over 6,200 sq ft.

The plots are to be sold separately. The sellers will demolish the existing house upon exchange of contracts on one of the plots. This will require a delayed completion of about 2 months.

The existing property is currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy and once vacated there is no ongoing chain.

In accordance with Section 21 of the Estate Agency Act we declare the owner of this property is a personal friend of a Savills employee at the Chelmsford office.

Thorndon Approach is a premier sought-after private road located in the heart of the village and this site is set within a small gated development on a large mature plot.

Herongate lies to the south of Brentwood and is twinned with its immediate neighbour Ingrave, both sought-after villages and served with local shop, traditional public house and the renowned Ingrave Johnstone Junior primary school.

The area also lies within close proximity of St Martin's senior school and within two miles of the public school at Brentwood. Major road links are easily accessible including the A127 and M25.

Immediately adjoining the village is Thorndon Country Park, a popular visitors' attraction with miles of walks, bridleways and fishing lakes. Adjoining is Thorndon Park Golf Club.

Drive into Thorndon Approach, at the end turn left to a set of electric gates. Proceed through the gates and Brora will be found as the first property on the left-hand side.
