Overall Description

This detached 1930's property was built by the builder of the other properties in the locality, for himself and his family, and as such, it is something of a one-off. The property is in need of complete renovation throughout - including new windows and doors, new kitchen and bathroom, rewiring, new flooring and complete redecoration - but also offers buyers considerable scope for remodelling and extending to create a magnificent modern home (subject to the usual consents). At present the property is arranged over three fours with a quirky solarium and roof terrace with far-reaching views, as well as a substantial fully boarded loft space, on the top floor. The first floor has four bedrooms (three being doubles), a bathroom and separate cloakroom next door. Downstairs there is an entrance hall, two generous receptions, a breakfast room, kitchen and outside cloakroom. The gardens are a good-size to front and back and there is a large parking/turning area next to the two garages with parking for three or four cars. If you are looking for a project with lots of potential to create your perfect family home in a desirable location then viewing is strongly advised. The property is being sold by Informal Tender with a deadline for "Best & Final" bids of 12 noon Wednesday 15th July. There is no onward chain and probate has been granted. GUIDE PRICE RANGE: £500,000 - £525,000. We have a viewing morning arranged for Saturday 27th June with socially distanced windows for you to view the property safely without anyone else inside (so it will be important to arrive at the alloted time). Please call for more information and to book a time slot.

Location

This detached home sits in a desirable location for professional couples with families, not least because it is just a short walk from some very well regarded local schools including the Westcliff High School for Boys, Westcliff High School for Girls, Thomas More High School, Chase High School and the Lancaster School. Westcliff-on-Sea is a popular seaside town, known for Westcliff Beach, The Cliffs Pavillion Theatre and the sloping lawns of Southend Cliff Gardens. However is is also a thriving community with good local shops and other amenities and transport links to London from Chalkwell or Westcliff stations (around 50 mins to Fenchurch St) or via the A127 Southend Arterial Road (to the the M25 and into the City). There are plenty of sports and other clubs for families locally and the Wellstead Gardens Sports and Social Club is just around the corner.
