We believe this historic Billericay property dates back to the early 1800's and was probably a pair of Farm Workers cottages serving one of the nearby farms.
Meticulously and sympathetically restored, renovated and enlarged, this beautiful home is now the perfect confection of old and new, its many period features blending with the modern amenities of present day living.
2020 sees a familiar silhouette from the front, with replacement white timber boarding to the front elevation, black timber boarding to the flanks, the restored central chimney emerging through the grey, slate tiled hipped roof and modern double glazed timber Sash windows, all preserving and enhancing the buildings appearance,
To the rear, a modern double storey extension encompasses a family- friendly, open plan Kitchen/Diner with timeless Grey 'Shaker' style units, Granite worktops and Tri-fold doors opening out to the Garden and over the top, a new Master Bedroom with its own private Ensuite Shower Room and Walk-in Wardrobe.
The two front rooms of the farm workers cottages have been opened up together, creating a large reception room with the central, double sided Fireplace giving a homely and charming focal point, with the balance of the accommodation including a surprisingly large Hall, separate Utility Room, ground floor WC Room, two further large double bedrooms (in addition to the aforementioned master bedroom) with a further second Ensuite Shower Room off Bedroom Two, a main Family Bathroom featuring a Freestanding Bath and another room, currently used as a Walk-through Dressing Room to the master bedroom, which could be separated off to create a useful extra small bedroom/nursery/study.
All the windows are double glazed, there is full Gas Central Heating via radiators, 'Oak' internal doors, skirting and architrave complimenting the modern décor, a Wood burning Stove in the Fireplace and exposed beam work in many of the original rooms. Externally, a 2-Car Drive runs down the side of the cottage to a detached single Garage and the 45ft x 35ft Garden benefits from being fairly unoverlooked.
HALL 12ft 3' x 7ft 8' (3.7m x 2.34m)
A surprisingly large hall and a great first impression, the exposed beam work to the far wall complementing the contemporary style Oak staircase with its glass balustrades, along with the matching skirting and architrave.
The smooth plastered ceiling has inset downlighting, as found throughout the property.
OPEN PLAN LIVING/DINING ROOM 25ft x 11ft 10' (7.6m x 3.6m)
Set the scene with a roaring fire in the feature wood burning Stove, the aesthetic centrepiece of this lovely reception room.
Twin front facing double glazed Sash windows flood in light, with the attractive engineered Oak wood flooring, adding warmth and further character to the room.
The vendor has created a clever hidden opening within the ceiling, just in front of fireplace, concealing the TV within the ceiling cavity, when not in use.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 23ft 2' x 12ft 4' (7m x 3.76m)
The keen cook will be in their element in this, the heart of the home, with the elegant, Granite topped, Grey 'Shaker' style units featuring a host of appliances including a Rangemaster Professional Dual Fuel Range Cooker with 6 Gas Burners, 2 Ovens, a Grill and a storage compartment.
In addition, the freestanding all-in-one Tall Fridge, Freezer and Wine cooler, will be remaining.
Further specification includes a Siemens integrated Dishwasher, Butler sink, full height soft close pull out Larder unit and the Granite worktops include upstands, Hob splashback and a Breakfast Bar.
The Trifold doors open wide, to bring the outside in during the summer months and feature integrated Blinds giving a sleek uncluttered look.

MASTER BEDROOM 14ft 7' x 12ft (4.44m x 3.66m)
