An exciting opportunity to create a wonderful family home or potentially develop even further.
If you are looking to establish the ultimate in living space, then this substantial six bedroom detached house could tick a whole host of boxes. Alternatively, the property could also present the ideal development proposition due to the size of plot, location and recently built new homes close by.
In need of modernisation, The Orchard is a substantial six-bedroom, four-bathroom house with four reception rooms, that sits on a plot of approximately just over half an acre. The house was completely rebuilt in the eighties with some additional features added, but there still remains some past evidence of the original house, featuring some of the original wooden beams in one corner of the property.
There is a large attached annexe, which also provides an abundance of living space, including a self-contained studio, running the length of the garages below. The property has its own equestrian facilities housing seven stables of equal proportions, as well as an outdoor swimming pool added to the patio area of the back garden.
The courtyards to the front and rear corner of the property provides ample parking, as well as access to the roadways.
Situated approximately one mile from the property is the thriving village of Blackmore, set in ancient woodland, with its Village Hall, post office, tea shop, pub and brasserie. Blackmore was highlighted last year by the Evening Standard Homes & Property magazine as a commuter spot to watch and rival similarly pretty villages down in Surrey. Blackmore Primary School is well respected with an Ofsted rating of good, along with other primary and infant schools within three miles of the area.
The nearest rail station is Ingatestone which is about three miles away, providing frequent trains to London Liverpool Street. A little further away is Shenfield rail station, which will be the eastern terminus of Crossrail when it finally makes its long-awaited debut. Crossrail will carry passengers from Shenfield, through central London and then out to the west via Heathrow, terminating at Reading.
