Doctors Farmhouse is a substantial five bedroom detached Grade II Listed residence dating back to 1782 which offers deceptively spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors. Other benefits include open fireplaces, wood burners, exposed timber beams and brickwork, solid oak flooring and beautifully established gardens. The house sits proudly within a sought after road close to local shops, primary school and more notably Southminster's Railway Station which serves London Liverpool Street Station with a journey time of a little over an hour. The accommodation comprises four first floor double bedrooms, three of which offer en suite facilities, three separate staircases serve the first floor. The ground floor offers entrance hallway, office, bathroom, living room, dining room, sitting room, kitchen and conservatory. Externally there is an attractive but low maintenance frontage with driveway parking and a westerly facing established rear garden with rear access and parking for additional vehicles. The property also has the benefit of planning permission for a double cart lodge/garage with office space over accessed from the rear. We strongly encourage viewing this property to fully appreciate not only the size and versatility of accommodation but also all the period features and charm that this historic property has to offer.
