Chelmsford Station 7.2 miles (Liverpool Street from 36 minutes), A12 2 miles (junction 20), Hatfield Peverel Station 3 miles (London Liverpool Street from 43 minutes). All mileages approximate.
Lock House is situated in the village of Little Baddow, which is surrounded by Essex Wildlife Trust woods and heath land. It is a thriving village, with a very highly thought of Preparatory School (Elm Green), a village hall, two long established churches and two public houses (The Generals Arms and The Rodney). It also has its own sports ground and clubhouse, which is home to a local cricket club in the summer months.
Nearby Danbury village offers an extensive range of local shops, amenities and schools (including the Heathcote Preparatory School and nursery) and there is good road access to the Sandon Park and Ride for direct bus routes into Chelmsford city centre and beyond. Chelmsford provides an excellent choice of facilities including two outstanding Grammar Schools, a bustling shopping centre, access onto the A12 and a station on the main line into Liverpool Street. The village of Hatfield Peverel (2.5 miles away) is also on the main line and offers commuters an alternative choice of station.
The house is of part brick and part render construction under a tiled roof and extends to approximately 903 square feet. It would benefit from some modernisation and offers sufficient scope to provide an excellent opportunity for additional improvements.
The main entrance is to the rear and can be accessed along one side. A flight of steps leads up to the part-glazed door leading into the hall and the principal ground floor rooms. These include a dual aspect sitting room with a feature brick fireplace containing a wood burning stove, a dining room with views over the side garden and which could have an alternative use as a bedroom, a fitted kitchen with a range of wall and floor units, a walk-in larder, a utility room with some fitted units, space and plumbing for a washing machine and an external door to the outside and an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank. The bathroom is also on this floor and incorporates a panelled bath with Triton shower, a hand basin and a wc.
A staircase in the hall leads up to the first floor and two double bedrooms with under eaves storage and fitted wardrobes. There is parking to the front and the gardens extend across the sides and rear of the house, with the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation Company (in separate ownership) forming the rear boundary.
