A sizeable and most attractive landing that provides access to loft storage space.

Given that this is the smallest of the bedrooms it is, in our opinion, a very good size indeed.

These include hebe, climbing roses, pittosporum, winter flowering yellow Jasmine and a large pear tree which makes an excellent feature. Across the rear of the house is a paved terrace which is ideal for eating out on warm summer days. Access to garage.


The front garden consists of a large tarmacadum driveway quite capable of providing off street parking for several vehicles with ease. In fact, it has been known for neighbouring properties to rent their car parking spaces to commuters, given the close proximity to Shenfield Station. The driveway leads to the garage.


This garage is a very good size indeed and has internal dimensions of approximately 19'3 in depth by 9'3 in width. It has been fitted with a panelled up and over door. Window to side aspect and as previously mentioned, a door opens to the garden.
