Stunning 6 bedroom DETACHED family home constructed to the highest possible standards within the past 3 years to the present Vendors exacting standards. Idyllic quiet village setting within a private close of just 3 properties and just a short walk to the village centre. Standing in delightful landscaped grounds of approximately 1 acre (STLS) with heated pool and pool house. Oak cart lodge provided secure parking for 3 cars plus storage areas and modern gym.
There are three words which best describe this most impressive DETACHED 6 bedroom family home: – quality, quality, quality!
Whether it’s the stunning Mark Wilkinson individually designed and hand crafted kitchen with it’s WOLF and Sub-Zero integral appliances and sweeping glass breakfast bar, the feature Spiral Cellar with it’s glass trap door in the floor of the kitchen, the Bang & Olufsen Sound 5 music system incorporated throughout the house as well as the pool area and patios, the beautiful luxury en-suite bathrooms to 4 of the 6 double bedrooms or the most impressive Colne Stoves log burners in both the lounge or family room – in fact, it doesn’t matter where you look, inside or out, the sheer quality and attention to detail of the entire construction, down to every last fixture and feature has obviously been chosen using the very best materials and equipment available.
When this quality and obvious attention to the finest detail is combined with the good taste and style of the owners who had this house built to their very exacting standards in the past 3 years or so, the result is a substantial family home of immense character and sumptuous comfort positioned within a quiet private cul-de-sac of just 2 other similar properties providing seclusion and privacy and yet within a few minutes walk of the village centre and all historic and pretty Stock has to offer and which have made this such a popular family location for so many years.
Overlooking the historic 12th century Church of All Saints’ to one aspect or the outdoor heated pool with it’s modern timber pool house to the other, all set within beautifully landscaped grounds of approximately 1 acre in all (STLS) which include a most attractive triple garage oak cart lodge with further storage and purpose built gym, the gardens and patio / entertaining areas have all obviously benefited from the same level of attention to detail as the house.
Whilst we believe the photographs supplied of this property do it justice, any interested buyer would really need to view the property, both internally and externally, to fully appreciate the sheer scale and standard of the accommodation on offer as well as the unique location of this impressive family home within this sought after village.
Stock village has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most desirable locations in the south east with many qualities to endear it to those searching for the rural idyll of a typical English village including cricket on the green, summer fetes, an ancient and beautiful Church, cosy pubs, village shops and a strong sense of community – somewhere to belong! Stock has all this and more including a village post office and general store including a newsagent, newly opened library, excellent off licence, hairdresser and an enviable selection of public houses and restaurants as well as a junior school with a reputation for high standards of education, all within walking distance of each other, even a new coffee shop – what more could you ask for?
Whilst Stock may enjoy a rather cosy Miss Marple image, it is far from being stuck in the past with a long list of village based clubs and associations for the young and not so young alike, including drama, Cubs, Scouts, art, photography , gardening, Keep fit, yoga and many more, the village even has its own magazine Stock Press and web site stock.org, both of which provide a useful insight of village life, featuring many local activities and events – take a look at the web site for yourself. Stock is particularly proud of its village hall, built with the help of the local residents; the modern facilities of this excellent community centre are an ideal venue for many of the village activities including social events, exhibitions and special interest markets every month.
Spiritually the village is well catered for with All Saints (Church of England) , Our Lady & St Joseph (Roman Catholic) and Christ Church (Free Church), all close by. Greenwood, former home of the Ellis Family (the past landed gentry of Stock) is now a luxury hotel, restaurant and health spa with day membership available to village residents.
The thriving shopping centres of Billericay and Chelmsford are only a short car journey away with Lakeside and Bluewater just a little further. Commuters are well served by fast rail links to London Liverpool Street (Approximately 25 minutes each way on the fast train). We also have an excellent regular bus service (the 100) running from Chelmsford to Basildon and Lakeside via Billericay with a stop right outside the Billericay railway station. The 100 picks up in the village every 20 minutes or so throughout the week.
We have some of the best secondary schools in the country nearby including Chelmsford High School for Girls and King Edward Grammar for boys, both in Chelmsford. Mayflower Comprehensive in Billericay and the Anglo European in Ingatestone are nearer and a bus collects in the village for the grammar schools in Westcliff on Sea and Southend.
No one knows Stock better.
