The Gardens and Grounds

The Cottage is approached via a private road which leads to an extensive gravelled driveway leading to a timber constructed garage, car port and recently built gymnasium all adjacent to attractive landscaped front gardens.

This is an exceptionally private plot and the gardens and grounds are a wonderful feature of the property that benefit from a full irrigation system.

Across the rear of the property there is a wide paved patio terrace with an inground heated swimming pool flanked by a summer house and changing rooms that could be used as a Granny Annexe.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn dispersed with a number of tall mature trees including a fine weeping willow adjacent to a pair of timber-built stables.

Leigh-on-Sea and the neighbouring towns don't really take much selling. They're by the sea, with regular, easy and fast connections to London, and they're bursting with cafes, bars, restaurants and independent shops. There's a very good reason so many people are upping sticks and moving here.
