At just under 1200 square feet, this period property on High Road, Rayleigh will attract lots of interest. It has an expansive rear garden, is close to the town centre and Rayleigh Primary School and off road parking for at least two vehicles. The vendor has found, and is looking for a quick sale.


High Road, Rayleigh, stretches from the A127 through to the town centre and this property sits in a sought after section of the road. Unusually, too, for a property built around 1888, it contains a very modern convenience – off road parking, something the Victorian architects would never have planned for in the 19th century. There is ample space for two vehicles, with scope to extend as the plot is, without exaggeration, an expansive one.

The location is spot on too with Rayleigh town centre being an easy stroll away as is the railway station, with direct links to London Liverpool Street and Southend. If you have children, the excellent Rayleigh Primary School is very close by, along with FitzWimarc School on Hockley Road.

The downstairs accommodation is accessed via a porch and hallway with a living room and adjoining dining room to the right, each characterised by high ceilings and stripped wooden doors. The kitchen is spacious with gas hob, double oven and a range of wall and base units in a light brown hue. There is also a utility area and a downstairs bathroom with show over bath.

Upstairs are three spacious double bedrooms.

Outside there is a mature front garden, planted with low maintenance evergreens and perennials, a side driveway and a rear lawned garden, festooned with spring bulbs and a glorious camellia.

The vendor is motivated to sell and this is reflected in an attractive guide price.
