Who could not be smitten with a property on a road called Love Lane? We think it will be love at first sight just as it was with the current owners when they first viewed this perfect property some 30 years ago.
That’s a long love affair.
We will stop now, with the love metaphors and talk instead about this 1177 square foot, 3 bedroomed property perched centrally in Rayleigh.
They say location is everything and this 1950s home is in a great position – a 3 minute walk to Rayleigh station with trains whisking you to Stratford in 45 minutes or Liverpool Street in 50 minutes. Trains not your cup of tea? Buses will take you to Basildon, Chelmsford and Stansted Airport from the same spot.
The house is only a 30 minute drive from the M25 and just six miles from Southend.
Love Lane is not only perfect for transport links, but is also close to Rayleigh Primary School and within the catchment of two highly regarded secondary schools: FitzWimarc and Sweyne Park.
The owners are downsizing but intend to stay in Rayleigh, as close to their current home as possible. They love the location – central but peaceful.
The house has been a real home to them for 3 decades and they’ve made many improvements: an extension in 1997, a remodelled bathroom in 2014, new windows in 2016, a new boiler in 2017 and a thermally-efficient wall covering that has a 20 year warranty.
The garden has been extensively remodelled too as it has space in abundance from its proud south-west facing deck attached to the rear of the house, along its 30 metre length, which the vendors currently cite as their favourite part of the home.
Internally, the bathroom has been seamlessly remodelled from two separate rooms to now have a bath and a shower; the bedrooms have handy fitted furniture for storage and practical hard flooring adorns the ground floor with the lounge even having a real fire, which is used in winters.
We think you will love this property as much as we do – and our guess is that you’ll be loath to move in 2048.
