Belvedere Road, Burnham-On-Crouch
| £575,000


Brimming with the charm, character and history one would expect from a property built in this era sits this Grade II Listed detached residence set in the heart of Burnham on Crouch. The property is located within quite literally a stone's throw of Burnham's historic High Street, River Crouch with its famous sailing clubs, quayside and fantastic coastal walks. Dating back to 1702, and formally built as two cottages, the property has been sympathetically improved and extended with accommodation now comprising three first floor double bedrooms, en suite to the master bedroom, family bathroom with separate WC, a generous split level landing offering access to the second floor loft room and staircase leading to the ground floor. The ground floor benefits from an entrance porch, reception hallway, wc, living room, dining room, kitchen and breakfast room/sitting room. The property boasts some fine features including original exposed fireplace, sliding sash windows, exposed timber beams and floor boards. Occupying a generous plot approaching 1/3 acre, externally there is driveway parking to the front, a single garage and a private un-overlooked established rear garden. Only by viewing can you truly appreciate the size, potential and uniqueness of property on offer.

BURNHAM ON CROUCH:

The town of Burnham-on-Crouch is situated on the banks of the River Crouch. 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 the famous ‘Burnham Week’ at the end of August. The town has a population of little over 7,500, is the principal settlement in the Dengie peninsula and is consequently able to boast many amenities that are uncommon in small towns. These include two primary schools and an academy secondary school, cinema, Burnham yacht harbour/marina, several boatyards, four yacht clubs (including the Royal Corinthian & Royal Burnham), two supermarkets, no less than nine public houses, numerous restaurants and shops. There is a railway station on the Southminster branch line with direct commuter trains into London Liverpool Street (at peak times). 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.
