Fancy a 5 minute walk to Thorpe Bay, the yacht club, or the golf club? Is bowls more your cup of tea?
Put down your search and come view this Tardis-like property on Leitrim Avenue.
You arrive at kerbside to what appears to be an unassuming 1930s bungalow. Low maintenance drive, attached garage with electric doors, ample off road parking but the interior holds surprises – oh yes it does.
12 years ago, you would have found a typical 30s property internally yes – but that was before Chris & Barbara began this magical transformation.
So what has Chris & Barbara added?
A large loft conversion entered by a bespoke hardwood staircase. The bedroom up there is complemented by an ensuite with both shower and bath.
An orangery has been added more recently – this is palatial in dimension, we kid you not. It has a lantern roof, bifold doors leading on to an equally expansive South African hardwood decking – which to no one’s surprise is the owners’ favourite outlook.
The deck is perfect for all weathers with a broad electric canopy and a large lawn, which is private and secluded, working in harmony with nature with a fish pond and waterfall.
The outside area is completed with a 30 feet by 25 feet log cabin, with space for entertaining, lounging, or, as currently used, for its sauna and table tennis.
Practical all year round too with air conditioning and heating.
The house is near a highly regarded junior school and the oversubscribed high school, Shoebury.
If we had boxes to tick on a checklist, we’d quickly run out of ink with this property.
Don’t be coy, go view this impressive home
