Property SummaryA private home, screened from the road with conifers, a detached long (single) garage, a tiled fitted kitchen and well-equipped bathroom.
Within easy reach of the train station, schools and the High Street. The house is under a kilometre from Wickford Train Station with less than a 40 minute journey into The City making this a good location/base for commuters.
The property is located in a residential area a little to the north of the town centre comprising a mix of semi-detached and detached homes near open fields. Close to the all major roads, bus stops nearby connecting to Basildon, Chelmsford, Lakeside and Southend.
Local amenities in the High Street include branches of most high street banks, Aldi, Iceland, Co-op, Boots Pharmacy, Post Office, hairdressers and petrol stations. A good selection of restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes within walking distance.
Runwell Community Primary is under 600m away from the house and was rated a good school by Ofsted in March 2018, while Beauchamps High School is located just under 1.5 miles away and was rated as outstanding in 2014.
The property is screened from the road by evergreen trees and fronted by a gravel drive leading to a detached long garage and offering off-road parking for four vehicles. There is gate access from the drive to the rear garden.
The rear garden is completely enclosed, mostly laid to lawn and surrounded by head-high timber fencing. Stone beds planted with established shrubs and trees offer additional privacy and shade while additional features include a patio area. French doors lead from the patio into the kitchen/diner.
An external door to the side of the property leads from the driveway into a reception hall, with stairs rising to the first floor and an internal door to the kitchen/diner ahead and another glass-panelled door to the right opening onto the lounge.
The kitchen/diner is fitted with easy-to-clean, stone effect floor tiles throughout with wooden base and wall units laid out in a U-shape and incorporating an eye level oven and grill; a four-ring ceramic hob beneath a concealed extractor; space and plumbing for a washer-drier; built in slimline dishwasher; built in fridge/freezer and a stainless steel sink with drainer and mixer tap located beneath a window overlooking the rear garden. There is an under-stairs storage cupboard ideal for larger household appliances or for use as a larder. The room includes recessed, ceiling-mounted LED spotlights.
The separate dining area is large enough for a family-sized dining table and chairs and the external French doors to the rear garden.
The lounge is carpeted and includes a feature fireplace with a natural stone surround, a solid wood mantle and display shelving and inset for a gas fire. Additional warmth in winter is provided by a wall-mounted radiator while the room is equipped with a TV point, phone and Ethernet connections.
The stairs to the first floor rise to a landing with doors leading to both double bedrooms and the house bathroom.
The bedrooms are carpeted, tastefully decorated in softer colours and equipped with wall-mounted radiators. One includes fixtures and fittings for a wall-mounted TV and the other some integral shelving.
The bathroom has been fitted with a bath with a tiled surround, a power shower above and bi-folding glass-and-chrome splash screen. There is also a wall-mounted, heated towel rail; a wooden cabinet with mirrored door; wall-mounted mirrors; a pedestal sink with separate hot and cold taps located beneath an opaque window; and a WC.
The majority of windows are double-glazed and the home is fitted with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with separate thermostat and individual controls on each radiator. A new boiler was installed in May 2018.
