Burnham Road, Althorne, Chelmsford
| £580,000


Church & Hawes are proud to offer this impressive and most imposing character residence located on an overall plot measuring 0.25 of an acre which boasts elevated views across open countryside and the River Crouch. Situated within the sought after village of Althorne which boasts mainline railway access to London Liverpool Street, the property was originally built and used as a dairy farm. The property itself offers deceptively generous and versatile accommodation throughout comprising four first floor bedrooms served by a re fitted shower room and WC, there is also a split level galleried landing leading to the ground floor which benefits from a large entrance hallway, library/bedroom 5, kitchen/breakfast room, living room, dining room, utility room and WC. The property does include many fine period features one would expect including high ceilings, exposed fireplaces and sliding sash bay windows. Although the majority of the internal accommodation is what we would consider to be well presented there is huge scope for further improvement or extension, subject to the necessary permission being granted. Externally there is a shingled driveway providing a plethora of parking, detached garage/workshop and a 105' southerly facing rear garden. Only by viewing can anyone fully appreciate not only the size and potential but the versatility this residence benefits from. Energy Rating D.
