Property description


Chadwell Place lies close to the Port of Tilbury and includes in excess of 2,750 sq. m. (30,000 sq. ft.) of farm buildings.  In addition are a pair of 3 bedroom semi-detached cottages and about 17.43 Ha (43.07 acres) of farmland that surround the buildings and dwellings.  The whole creates an attractive package for the investor, especially as the property is close to the Marshfoot Road interchange providing access onto the A1089 Dock Approach Road.


Chadwell Place is located on the south side of Chadwell approximately 1.5 miles to the north of Tilbury Docks.  The buildings and cottages sit at the centre of the property and are located at the top of an escarpment giving views over Tilbury Docks and into Kent.

The farm is bounded on three sides by roads with access onto two of them.  To the south of the property is Marshfoot Road, which has an interchange onto the A1089 dual carriageway that leads to Tilbury to the south and connects with the A13 to the north.  Chadwell Place is therefore well located for access to the national road network.  There are train stations at Tilbury and Grays that connect with London Fenchurch Street station.
