2 BATHROOMS, DELIGHTFUL GARDEN…
…ALL CAREFULLY ‘LOOKED AFTER’…”
Occupying a generous garden plot mid way up Oak Hill, and not far from the forest, the location is only a short brisk walk of Highams Park Centre Amenities and its station with a 20 minute or so link to Liverpool St!
Close by also is the highly popular Oak Hill Primary School, much favoured locally! The A406 is only a short drive connecting to the M11 & M25 motorways.

We understand from our clients that this loft conversion was one of the first in the area dating back from the mid 1970’s period. It is thought that given current planning/building regulations that the loft could be further developed to include extra living space or the possibility of a bathroom wc en-suite depending on the necessary legal permissions being satisfied.
A delightful feature of this property is the charming rear garden extending to about 57ft in depth and providing a colourful addition to the house! Immediately off the kitchen and living room there is a pleasant flagstone style raised patio, this wraps around the property and extends to the side of the house where there is a double gated access to the front garden. Here also there is a cold water mains tap and outside lights fitted. From the patio there is a “stepping stone” pathway which divides a well-kept lawn with shaped shrub and flower borders to either side. Separating the rear boundary is a raised trellis and immediately to the back of the garden, there is space for a greenhouse, timber shed etc.
