Overall Description

This detached bungalow was built in the 1930's by the grandparents of the current owners. It sits well set back from the road in a large plot so offers buyers plenty of scope for enlarging and modernising but may also offer potential for replacing with a new home, all subject of course to planning permission which would require being in keeping with the village plan. The original property had two bedrooms, a bathroom, sitting room, hallway and kitchen/dining room but two timber extensions were subsequently added to the rear to add more sleeping and living space. The property does retain some original features, most notably the fireplaces, but needs complete modernisation throughout as well as the addition of central-heating (gas is not currently connected). The property has a private driveway and garage and large gardens which include a substantial corrugated Nissan Hut, formerly used for housing 150 chickens, but which may have scope for replacement and possibly alternative use, subject to planning.

Location

The property is located in the pleasant village of Panfield, a thriving village community, just a five minute drive from Braintree and surrounded by beautiful Essex countryside criss-crossed by footpaths and bridleways. The village has a pretty church (St Mary and St Christopher), village hall and public house (The Bell) as well as the John Barr and Thistledown Playing fields. There are good transport links close by with the A120 at Braintree and there is a bus stop just across from the property.
