Fastidiously presented and much improved to what we consider to be an excellent standard throughout is this charming character cottage which originally dates back to 1722 and occupies a non-estate plot measuring 127' x 48'. Although extended and dramatically modernised the property's improvements remain sympathetic retaining its exposed beams,brickwork and fireplaces. Internal accommodation comprises three first floor bedrooms, re fitted bathroom and separate shower room whilst the ground floor boasts entrance porch, open plan living/dining room divided with ceiling high back to back fireplace, conservatory, cloakroom, rear lobby and re fitted kitchen/breakfast room. Externally there is an in and out carriage driveway providing off road parking for up to 5 vehicles, single garage and an established westerly facing rear garden. Although on the fringes of Burnham on Crouch, within walking distance you can find Burnham's railway station with links to London Liverpool Street. Only by viewing can you fully appreciate the quality of fixtures and improvements made, therefore early viewing is advised to avoid disappointment.

Burnham on Crouch

The town of Burnham-on-Crouch is situated on the north bank of the River Crouch, which is an attractive tidal estuary. Historically the town was first a ferry port, subsequently becoming a fishing port known for its oyster beds, and most recently a renowned yachting centre hosting ‘Burnham Week’ at the end of August. Although the town has a population of little over 7,500, it is the principal settlement in the Dengie peninsula and is consequently able to boast facilities that are uncommon in small towns. These include two primary schools and a secondary school, a cinema, Burnham yacht harbour/marina, several boatyards, four yacht clubs, two supermarkets, no less than nine public houses, numerous other restaurants, eateries and shops and a railway station on the Southminster branch line with direct trains into London Liverpool Street. The Burnham-on-Crouch Golf Club, founded in 1923, is situated in Creeksea on the outskirts of Burnham and enjoys breathtaking views over the Crouch Valley and River Crouch.


The property is fitted with an electrically operated underfloor heating system to the ground floor although currently not working in the living area.
