3-bed Semi-Detached House Guide Price £600,000

Property description

Agents summary

This established three bedroom semi detached house has recently been decorated throughout to allow buyers to be able to move straight in and put their furniture down for immediate living. Due to the orientation of the house and boundary the side garden in our opinion has great scope to develop and construct a brand new four bedroom detached house with a double garage, all subject to the usual planning requirements needed. The current home comprises of an entrance hall with a cloakroom, there is a 24' 0" (7.32m) through lounge with dining area, kitchen, separate utility room, and three good size bedrooms along with a spacious bathroom. Outside, there are established front and rear gardens with various trees that offer a fair degree of privacy. The sellers have also had the exterior decorated adding a traditional colour on to the render. Other benefits for this home include uPVC double glazed windows and Solidor doors, oil fired central heating by radiators and new carpets have been laid in the lounge, lobby and utility room. The house is offered for sale with no onward chain.   

Area information

This established semi detached home can be found on the quiet and sought after Nathans Lane positioned on the outskirts of the City of Chelmsford. The area has an abundance of open countryside walks across fields and bridle paths surrounding this rural hamlet.

Agents note

As previously mentioned the side garden offers fantastic potential to either extend the current house like many homes in the surrounding area or to split the plot for development potential.

Planning Permission is being submitted to split the existing plot to create a development site of approx 421m² and to construct a 4 bedroom detached house of 1,908 sq ft with a detached double garage. The proposal envisages a two-storey design of very similar scale to surrounding properties with the materials to be kept in-keeping with the current landscape. The proposed floor plans for the new build are shown within the property listing.
