History & Background A rare opportunity to purchase two properties, each on separately registered title deeds: The three/four-bedroom detached period property probably dates to 17th & 18th Centuries, with later additions, albeit not listed. This title extends to 2.1 acres and includes the rear automatic gates into an extensive area or parking, a good stable block with storage rooms behind, alongside a log cabin office, double carport and double garage with a w.c. and storage room behind. There are two post and rail fenced paddocks with automatic water troughs and a pair of stables on skids. The house itself is olde-worlde with exposed beams and brick fireplaces, with a lovely south west facing garden.
The Cottage by Cobblestones (as it is registered) has its own access off South Hanningfield Road (currently closed off), with 2.4 acres of grounds accompanying the one/two bedroom period detached cottage which is considered a total refurbishment project or possibilities for a replacement dwelling. Within the grounds are two substantial buildings. The main concrete block beneath peg tiled roof barn (1560 sq ft) contains 6 extra size internal loose boxes, a large tack room, w.c and internal alley. The second barn (approximately 900 sq ft) has a roller shutter door and could accommodate 6 cars or become an excellent store/workshop. There is also extensive parking, a larger paddock, and mature gardens.
The property is available as a whole and offers a variety of options for living arrangements and the possible scope for leisure/ancillary buildings, alongside equestrian facilities.
Setting & Location The property is situated in the highly desirable area of South Hanningfield, near to Ramsden Heath, Wickford, Billericay, Stock and the Hanningfield's lying 8 miles south of Chelmsford City, on the east side of Hanningfield Reservoir with its waterside centre, nature reserve and restaurant – within a two minute walk from the property. There can be some beautiful sunsets over the water and lovely walks both here and in the general surrounding countryside.
The house and cottage are located on the corner of the lane which leads down to the waterside centre, close also to The Windmill pub and restaurant. The main access with wooden electric gates is from the rear of the premises down this no through lane to the reservoir.
The area is excellent for the mix of country living and lifestyle, combined with being conveniently position for A130 and major road link connections (A12, A13, A127) whilst also being just 3 miles from Wickford mainline railway station which is only 37 minutes from London Liverpool Street. Both Chelmsford (8 miles) and Southend (14 miles) have an exceptional range of private and Grammar School educational facilities and furthermore the property is also accessible for the private schools in Billericay (5.5 miles) and Brentwood (14 miles).
What we think at Zoe Napier Group A great opportunity for larger families with two neighbouring homes. The large barn with pan tiled roof might even offer prospects for leisure or permissible business uses or even the possibility of gaining planning in the future (speculative). The properties are in a great location too, with beautiful gardens and waterside sunsets down by the reservoir.
