About this property

  • The property was built in the 1920s and sits on a plot extending to approximately 0.8 acres enclosed and screened by established high hedges and fencing. The grounds include a small rear paddock with a large mature tree, some former stables and an additional outbuilding, all of which are in need of attention.

    The house can be approached from either side; one driveway leads to an attached garage while the other, which runs to the side of the building, could enable vehicular access to the paddock.

    The internal accommodation, which is also in need of considerable modernisation, is arranged over two floors and includes an entrance lobby, a sitting room, a dining room, a family room, a garden room, a kitchen, a ground floor cloakroom and separate bathroom, a ground floor bedroom and three attic rooms.

I really like the location on the edge of Galleywood Common, close to all the amenities of Chelmsford city as well as being surrounded by semi-rural countryside.
