Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Bursting with potential, this family friendly 4-bedroom detached house of 1,188sq ft, enjoys a lovely setting on Swan Lane, a country lane in the heart of the village, running behind the Village pond and on the edge of the Glovers Farm Estate, built in the 1970's.

The property also boasts a double garage to the rear and a secluded outlook to the front, where it overlooks a private greensward.

A front path for the row of houses breaks the long front garden, which runs the other side of the path down to the lane, with the duckpond the other side.

The property itself boasts spacious Living and Dining Rooms, along with a Conservatory, ground floor WC Room, 4 good size bedrooms (3 large doubles) and the Family Bathroom.

The windows are double glazed, there is Gas Central Heating via radiators, cavity wall insulation and the sunny rear garden is just shy of 50ft in length, with a nice 1.6m wide, gated side walkway.

With all the convenience of a suburban location with added countryside, Kelvedon Hatch is a pretty village of approx. 2,500 inhabitants, situated midway between Brentwood (approx. 4 miles south) and Chipping Ongar, and surrounded by Metropolitan Green Belt.

It is just 18 miles from central London with the M25 only a 4.8 mile drive too.

It is home to the not-so-secret 'Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker', the largest and deepest cold war bunker open to the public in South East England and 'The Coppice', 23 acres of ancient semi-natural woodland and a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest.

There's a good range of facilities including a Nisa Supermarket incorporating a Post Office just100 yards away, the Shepherd Pub literally across the main road (a beautiful Grade II Listed late 16th century Inn, which does food too), the highly regarded Eagle Pub/Restaurant, a popular Indian Restaurant, the modern Village Hall (holding an array of playgroups, study groups, clubs or meetings) and the local Primary School which holds a Good OFSTED Report.

The Accommodation


Parquet flooring hides beneath the carpet and the stairs rise to the first-floor landing.

GROUND FLOOR CLOAKROOM 8ft1" x 3ft 7" (2.46m x 1.09m)

At 8ft long, we wondered if this ground floor WC could be altered to a shower room.

As it is, there is a close coupled WC and vanity unit. A side window provides natural light.

LOUNGE 16ft 8" x 11ft 4" (5.08m x 3.45m)

The measurements of this spacious living room exclude the large 9ft 10" x 2ft 7" (2.99m x 0.78m) walk-in Bay with the windows overlooking the front greensward - a nice outlook.

The focal point is the modern Marble Fireplace.

DINING ROOM 16ft x 8ft 4" (4.87m x 2.54m)

A lovely big room with two large built in cupboards at one end. A deep understairs cupboard and an adjoining full height cupboard housing the Glow Worm Gas Boiler.

The 6ft wide opening at the end (the now removed original rear sliding patio doors) opens through to the Conservatory.

CONSERVATORY 11ft 6" x 8ft 3" (3.5m x 2.51m)

This lean-to style glass extension with double glazed windows has a set of double doors opening out to the garden and wood effect vinyl flooring.

KITCHEN 9ft 4" x 7ft 10" (2.4m x 2.38m)

With a rear window overlooking the garden, the cream units and solid wood worktops and dated but functional, with a built-in Oven below a Gas Hob with a stainless-steel Chimney Extractor Hood above.

Similar properties have swapped the dining room with the adjacent kitchen - the kitchen becoming the ample size dining room and the large dining room being fitted out as a much larger Kitchen/Breakfast Room - a good idea.


A nice big Landing with lots of light from the side window and with the cylinder in the airing cupboard offset to the left, giving lots of space for shelving.

The hatch in the ceiling opens to the loft with a pull-down ladder and light.

MASTER BEDROOM 14ft x 9ft 7" (4.26m x 2.92m)

Enjoying a pleasant leafy view of the tree lined greensward to the front and a good size.

The fitted wardrobes may be dated but they provide loads of storage.

BEDROOM TWO 12ft 8" x 8ft 6" (3.86m x 2.59m)

A good size, rear double bedroom.

BEDROOM THREE 12ft 8" x 8ft 1" (3.86m x 2.46m)

Another fine size rear double bedroom.

BEDROOM FOUR 8ft 8" x 7ft 2.64m x 2.13m)

With the measurements excluding the door recess, this bedroom also enjoys a pleasant view over the front greensward.

BATHROOM 6ft 2" x 5ft 5" (1.87m x 1.65m)

With plenty of light coming in the side window and fitted with a white suite with white tiling, this light and bright room has a pedestal basin, close coupled WC and Bath with a Mira 'Jump' electric shower.


The row of houses were built in 1973 fronting on to a greensward, with this house benefiting from private use of its strip of the greensward - hence the growth of bushes and trees to give it separation, in effect a big front garden, ideal for when the children were young to play in.

The house has also got a more traditional front lawn, its side of the path that runs in front of the houses.

A wide side access has a gate leading round to the rear garden.

EXTERIOR - REAR GARDEN 49ft x 24ft 14.93m x 7.31m)

Having a paved Patio and a bordered lawn, enclosed by fencing.

DOUBLE GARAGE 17ft 9" x 17ft 2" 95.41m x 5.23m)

A courtesy door provides direct access from the end of the garden.

The garage is approached along Barley Field, the road behind.


On a private forecourt off the main road, adjacent to the run of houses.
