Colne Place, Basildon is a new property for Nest in Essex, which is perfectly placed for both the town centre and the community hub of Kingswood, a newly refurbished restaurant, bar and gym. It calls itself “the friendly face of fitness” which, like the property, sounds suitably welcoming.
Colne Place is indeed an unusual and beguiling property that needs to be viewed to appreciate it fully.
It’s perched loftily on a hill, though don’t expect to be packing an oxygen mask for altitude sickness. It is recently refurbished too, with a gargantuan open plan living space – what a lovely adjective too! Decor is neutral and the flooring complements the property.
There are 3 bedrooms, all tastefully decorated and a wonderful living space where dining, living and cooking spaces meld seamlessly.
Outside, there’s an expansive garden with side gate access, a huge decked area perfect for those long Essex summer nights.
Basildon itself is a large town, just 11 miles from Southend and Chelmsford and 26 from London. The fastest trains will whizz you to Fenchurch Street in under 40 minutes.
Closer to home, there’s good retail at Eastgate, retail parks at Pipps Hill and Mayflower. There’s also a cinema, theatre and arts centre in Towngate.
Highly rated primary and secondary schools are close by too.
The town was designed with large amounts of green spaces with Gloucester Park dominating the centre of Basildon. Kent View Recreation ground in Vange and Northlands Park in Pitsea are the other large green spaces. Other formal parks include Mopsies Park in Timberlog Lane, and Howards Park in Pitsea.
There’s also a popular RSPCA Nature Reserve at Bowers Marshes, with] Essex Wildlife Trust running a large reserve at Langdon.
