Parsonage Lane, Little Baddow
| £1,100,000

A TRUE ONE OFF! Location location location…..set on an overall south facing plot of just over one acre and well screened to all aspects is this flexible living architect designed home. Located along one of Little Baddow’s most desired private roads, the property backs onto Blakes Wood, a large area of woodland. The National Trust website states ‘Enjoy the peacefulness and walk with the National Trust, from Blakes Wood to Lingwood Common. On this 100 acre sloping site, look out for horn-beam and sweet chestnut coppice, with oak, ash and birch standards. This is one of three walks linking Blakes Wood with Danbury and Lingwood Commons’. The property is a true one off and features bright and airy rooms which take full advantage of the gardens and privacy. This home affords most versatile accommodation not only including four reception rooms and three bedrooms, but also a cinema room and gym which are independently accessed. We are of the opinion these two rooms along with the shower room would make an excellent annexe for dependent relatives, young or old. The property also offers a great deal of potential to extend if desired, subject to local authority consent. Elm Green Preparatory school and Little Baddow Cricket Club are closeby with Danbury village and Paper Mill Lock both less than a mile away. This is a most individual home with many unique features in a wonderful private setting. Energy rating F.
