Located a little over 5 miles from Brentwood Town Centre this property has the benefits of quiet countryside living and the convenience of being within easy access of amenities and transport links, both rail and road. Offered for sale with no on-going chain.

The front of the property has lovely charm and character with a part weatherboard/part rendered appearance and red brick chimneys reaching out through the tiled roof.

There is bright dining room which has a double aspect with views to the front and side aspect, and includes an open fireplace, and there is a living room with triple aspect to front, side and rear.
