The Heights, Danbury
| £565,000

Situated within a few minutes walk of Danbury Lakes & Country Park is this split-level detached home. Most deceptive in size and having been imaginatively extended the property offers versatile living space ideal for a growing family and is conveniently located just a short distance from Danbury Park school. Accommodation totals about 158 square metres (1700 sq. feet) and includes four/five bedrooms, two bathrooms, three reception rooms, study, cloakroom and a kitchen. Quite interestingly there is also a first floor conservatory leading to a large south facing paved balcony! Externally there is a double garage, front and rear gardens and also a large side garden with mature trees (whole freehold measures about 0.2 of an acre, from Ordnance Survey). The property appears to have been well maintained but offers excellent scope for modernisation works and further improvement. NO ONWARD CHAIN. Energy rating C.

Location Note

The house is within easy access of local shops, amenities, two state schools including Danbury Park Primary School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) and two Preparatory Schools (Heathcote in Danbury itself and Elm Green in Little Baddow). The village is surrounded by a wealth of National Trust woodland, including the historic landscape of Danbury Park (a former medieval deer park). Only six miles due west of Danbury is the cathedral city of Chelmsford and its excellent choice of facilities, which include two outstanding Grammar Schools, shopping centre, and a station on the main line into London Liverpool Street (journey time from 32 minutes). To the east is the market town of Maldon with its bustling High Street and historic Hythe Quay. The A12 and Sandon Park & Ride service (popular with commuters and shoppers) are just a couple of miles away.

Specification Note

Although a new owner would likely wish to undertake some modernisation many aspects have benefited from previous investment including gas central heating, double glazed windows, UPVC soffits, fascias and barge boards, solar panels (with storage batteries) that provide hot water and generate electricity, two Panasonic air conditioning units.
