Pett Close, Hornchurch, RM11
21 years is a long time for property ownership and that sort of longevity usually speaks volumes about both the property and the locale. Coincidentally, 1997 was the same year as “Men in Black” was released and that film (and this property) have both aged well.
This 4 bedroomed detached home sits one mile from Hornchurch town centre, which is a pleasant place in itself, with independent shops, pedestrianised streets and plenty of restaurants and cafés to dine in.
Good schools abound close by too – like St Mary’s, Campion and Sacred Heart.
Prime commuter territory for London and other places.
Hornchurch has no less than four rail links with Elm Park and Upminster being closest to this spacious home.
Harrow Lodge Park is very close too. If you’re not familiar with it, there is a sports club, with badminton courts and a gym, archery, a lake, a cricket club and a restaurant.
But what about the property?
You’ve worked out that the location is brilliant, but what about this house?
It’s a freehold property in the St Leonards development. The property is not packed in like many new sardine type developments but has a real sense of space externally and internally. It’s been extended and remodelled over the 21 years too.
Downstairs, there’s a lounge, kitchen / diner and adjoining family room, all awash with light from expansive windows and French doors.
Upstairs, four bedrooms (master having an en-suite), family bathroom and dog leg staircase.
Outside there’s parking for two cars on the front and the rear is lawned with mature shrubbery and faces south.
There’s a large patio to place sun loungers, furniture and the Factor 30 in spring to autumn.
We’ll let Mike, the owner have the last words:
“This has been our family home for a long time, having brought two children up here. It’s a home packed with wonderful memories. The garden itself will be hard to beat and we’re hoping that our next home will match the quietness and community spirit of this one.”
