Stock 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 it’s own magazine ‘Stock Press’ and web site, 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 very 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. If this information has wetted your appetite for a home in Stock, why not come and see us for yourself, you will always be welcome in any one of the 5 village pubs for a cup of coffee or something a little stronger! Or better still pop in to see us for a cup of coffee!

 Stock and the pretty villages surrounding it are more than just a place to live, they are somewhere to set down roots for generations! So, if you are looking for a home in or around Stock, then look no further than M-Estates. Based in Stock, we probably know the village (and villagers!) better than anyone and therefore can bring our local knowledge and experience to bear when it comes to finding you the right property
