***TRULY STUNNING LOCATION! Directly overlooking open farmland and also onto the River Crouch less than a mile away is this established early 1900's semi-detached home set in a private position off of and unseen from Fambridge Road. The extensive accommodation is divided over three floors and also includes a large garage with a room above. The lounge is probably the most impressive room with a vaulted ceiling and doors opening onto a large raised sun deck to the front and the gardens to the rear. Along with 5 bedrooms, there is also a 23' dining room, large kitchen with island, conservatory, utility room and two bathrooms. Part of the property lends itself to relatively easy conversion to a self-contained annexe (subject to any consents required). As mentioned, the uninterrupted views from the front of the property are simply breathtaking and reach over the Southend-on-Sea peninsula with the Kent coastline also visible on a clear day. The plot is approximately a third of an acre and the rear garden about 100' x 75'. Most windows are replacement double glazed, there is full mains gas central heating and also mains drainage.
