HISTORY & BACKGROUND An instantly charming and beautifully restored three storey Victorian semi-detached house, situated in a premium leafy residential area which lies within close proximity of major educational and commutable amenities, whilst combining the excellent lifestyle choice of living by the sea.
The property has undergone an extensively researched and sympathetic restoration programme to regain the strong period characteristics of the Victorian era successfully combining a careful blend to provide the modern living conveniences of today with the added benefit of the Coach House, a double length garage with inspection pit, suitable also for boat or overhead canoe storage.
The house carries an interesting history, constructed (as depicted) in 1876 and was in the owner-ship of the same family from the 1920's to 1999. Records show that a lady called Agnes was the first Housemaid back in the 1890's! Today the house is enriched with its original quality, ranging from the typically high ceilings with hand spun plasterwork, polished floorboards, two stunning working fireplaces, restored doors with the discovery of opaque and coloured glass detail with the original door furniture still in situ and both the original outside W.C and restored bath in the main bathroom.
SETTING AND LOCATION Park Road lies in the Milton Conservation Area and is one of the premium tree-lined roads close to Clifftown Conversation area and Prittlewell Square, an area recognised for its aesthetically pleasing mix of Victorian and Edwardian homes. The area is a prime magnet for those seeking a comfortable lifestyle choice close to the sea and at the same time within easy daily commute of the City.
There is a choice of mainline stations serving both Fenchurch Street and Liverpool Street, the journey within walking distance, taking around an hour. The property is also within walking distance of top educational facilities.
