Ridgeway. I run the risk of sounding cliché, but is truly a prestigious road, located just off the High Road, made up of just 26 homes with a mixture of semi and detached properties many of which are bursting with character, a bit like this one we are marketing with the name “Panorama”… I’ll come back to that point.
Let’s start with the location. The locale itself lends itself to a multitude of benefits. For example, Rayleigh Station is only ½ a mile away getting you from door to platform in around 10-12 minutes and in less then a couple of minutes in the car you can be on the A127 giving you access to most of the major roads in Essex.
Commuting not your thing? How about schools? Rayleigh Primary School is just 0.3 miles away which is walkable in just under 5 minutes. Furthermore, Fitzwimarc Secondary School will take approximately 15 minutes to walk.
How about the usual “Local Amenities” … in this situation you have the full High Street at your disposal, from various small independent shops to the larger stores including an M&S Food Hall plus Chemists, Dentists and Doctors Surgeries as well as a Library and plenty of cafes & restaurants including ASK and Prezzo.
So that’s enough about the location, lets talk about the house itself. A period and traditional four bedroom semi detached house with HUGE potential to extend (subject to planning permission) … why? The plot the property sits on is generously sized (that alone is an understatement) lending itself to have huge potential for a large side & rear extension, garage conversion AND even potential to convert the loft for extra bedrooms (the next door neighbour has already done this)…. Again, subject to the correct permissions, but nonetheless the potential is there!
The driveway is big enough for 3 or more cars comfortably, that’s before you have utilised the space in the garage!
Lets move onto the house itself.
Not one, but two large reception rooms perfect for the living room and dining room for a growing family, the kitchen is a great size with plenty of worktop space, a large range oven and space for a breakfast table while enjoying windows to dual aspect, there is also a downstairs wc, and rear lobby connecting the kitchen, garage, driveway and garden giving you access to them all.
Upstairs, you come to a split landing where you will find three double bedrooms and one large single room along with a family bathroom. Remember the name Panorama? Well it means ‘an unbroken view of the whole region surrounding an observer’ .. a statement which couldn’t be more accurate. From the rear of the property you can see over West Rayleigh with views as far as the eye can see. The property itself has an abundance of windows which allows natural light to flood in every room while all having their own unique views all of which are impressive.
The garden wraps around the property which various different levels and ‘zones’.. firstly, is a paved area perfect for enjoying the summer BBQ while enjoying the sunshine (with this part being south facing) with the garden wrapping around to the West. All with maximum privacy shielded by mature shrubs and trees. PLUS there is a small bonus which is the door to the rear, providing access to a cellar (how many properties have you seen with its on cellar?).
