Property SummaryA family home comfortably within Londons commuter belt, offering a delightful decked rear garden, integral single garage and off-road parking, an open plan living room/diner, modern kitchen and downstairs WC.
Just over a couple of miles from the nearest station, the property is also within easy reach of the famous Lakeside shopping village, the M25 and local amenities including good schools, a convenience store, parks and a golf club.
The property is on a relatively new development with views over school playing fields to the front. The crescent leads to open parkland between Broxburn Drive and Barle Gardens and within the catchment area of Dilkes Academy rated as "Outstanding" by Ofsted in 2012 Holy Cross Catholic Primary located within a few hundred metres of the house was also assessed to be a good school with some outstanding elements in 2016.
Nearby public transport links include buses from Daiglen Drive, which run to Grays and the well-known Lakeside shopping centre as well as Aveley, Brentwood, Ongar and Hutton. Regular trains to London Fenchurch Street and Southend are also available from the Chafford Hundred railway station, located a two-mile drive from the house and just a little to the east of Lakeside. Travel further afield by car is also made relatively simple by the proximity of the M25, offering links to London and the wider motorway network.
But, closer to home, amenities include a convenience store, a hairdressers, a laundrette, a sandwich bar, a fish-and-chips shop and tanning studio all with 800m on Broxburn Drive. Recreational opportunities include walks in the wooded Dilkes Park or for those who prefer a good walk spoiled - the Mardyke Valley Golf Club is just a mile and a half away by car.
The property sits a little back from the road, fronted by a shared concrete drive offering off-road parking for two vehicles and leading to an integral single garage. There is a lawn to the right with a degree of privacy offered by evergreen hedges, screening the front of the house from the road. A flagstone-and-gravel path leads to the front door as well as to a passageway along the side of the property which then leads on to the delightful garden to the rear.
Here, a door from the kitchen opens onto a block-paved patio with head-high timber fence panels either side. Decking has been laid across most of the remainder of the enclosed back garden, with beds for established shrubs plants and trees either side of extensive wooden terraces - ideal for al fresco dining and relaxing during the summer months. A timber pergola is also located close to the kitchen door while additional features include a greenhouse and some external lighting.
The front door opens onto an internal porch, a door immediately to the left leading to the downstairs loo, equipped with WC and hand basin. An archway to the right opens onto the open-plan living room/diner.
Wooden floors have been fitted throughout - the dining area to the right easily large enough to accommodate a family-sized table and chairs. The room includes a wall-mounted radiator beneath a window overlooking the front garden, with open stairs with wooden spindles and banister rail rising from here to the first floor. The living room area overlooks the rear garden and also includes a wall-mounted radiator, TV and aerial point, decorative coving and a chandelier-style light fitting as well as a thermostat to control the warmth in the winter months.
The kitchen is accessed via an open doorway from the dining area and is equipped with a stone-effect tiled floor. Light-coloured, wooden base and eye-level wall units are fitted above and below grey, granite-effect work tops with splashback tiles above all the cooking and preparation areas. A four-ring gas hob can be found beneath a concealed extractor while the design also includes an eye-level oven, space and plumbing for a washer-drier and a stainless steel sink with mixer tap adjacent to the external door to the rear garden.
The stairs to the first floor led to a landing where internal doors open onto three double and one single bedroom as well as the house bathroom. One of the bedrooms is currently used as an office by the vendors and incorporates integral wardrobes with mirrored sliding doors; another is currently used as a dressing room. However, all four bedrooms are decorated in neutral colours and are fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators.
The house bathroom is fully-tiled and equipped with a pedestal hand basin and WC as well as a bath with dark-wood side panels, a shower attachment and hinged glass splash screen. The wood-panelled ceiling is complemented by the design of the glass-fronted cabinet above the sink while lighting is provided by recessed ceiling-mounted LED spotlights.
The property is double-glazed and benefits from some loft insulation. It is also fitted with a programmable gas-fired central heating system with a separate thermostat providing hot water and warmth in winter, with some low-energy lighting.
