With ’almost’ more dog walkers and riders on horseback going past down leafy Well Lane than cars, you would be hard pressed to find a more peaceful and tranquil location within this pretty and much sought after village from which to enjoy all Stock has to offer including an enviable selection of shops, café, restaurants and pubs not to mention enough clubs and associations to appeal to all ages and interests than you can shake a stick at! Just take a look at the village magazine ’Stock Press’ and you will get a flavour of life in the village and just what makes Stock such a vibrant, thriving and popular village.
Set back from the lane and benefiting from a very generous rear garden, this delightful characterful family home has obviously benefit from considerable ’T.L.C’ from the present owners during their period of occupation and is offered in truly immaculate order throughout.
Offering spacious and versatile accommodation on both the ground and first floor, the house boasts 4 double bedrooms including en-suites to the master bedroom and guest room as well as a very large and luxurious family bathroom.
The large dual aspect open plan lounge benefits from an attractive brick fireplace inset with a cosy log burner and there is a second useful sitting room, large dining room, with attractive fireplace and a well equipped fully fitted kitchen and breakfast room overlooking the delightful west facing garden with its large newly completed terrace area – perfect for summer entertaining.
There is both a single garage and covered car port as well as considerable off street parking which leads in turn to the large rear garden (approx. 200’ STLS).
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 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 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.
