Property description

Description

** guide price**£375,000 - £400,000 Jukes Estate Agents Harlow are delighted to bring to market by way of a conditional sale* this fabulous, quirky 4 bedroom property that is tucked away in a private, quiet cul-de-sac in Kingsdon Lane Harlow.

We absolutely love taking on this type of property. Why? Because we love quirky, we love property with a bit of history, we love property with tales of who maybe lived there and who used to visit etc. Urban myth or was it true? All will be revealed as you read this.
What we do know for sure that parts of this property date back at least 400 years.
It used to be part of Kingsdon Hall, hence its Grade ll listing.
Kingsdon Hall was a 'U' shaped building and was eventually reconfigured into 4 properties. Therefore, this property has previously described as 'end of terrace'. Technically I suppose it is. However, to describe it as eot is detrimental to it as terraced conjures up an image of 4 properties in a row. That is most certainly not the case!
This is why we have listed it as semi detached as that is visually how it appears. You will see for yourself if you decide to view it.
Staying with the history lesson, Kingsdon Hall was at one stage a grammar school and there are numerous unsubstantiated stories that the legendary dj and Radio One star John Peel owned the property. If that isn't enough to whet your appetite, locals talk about the infamous parties thrown their and that David Bowie was a frequent visitor. When I was being told this by the current owners I have to admit that it sent shivers down my spine!
Onto the actual geographic location. This property is:
1.6 miles from Harlow Mill Station
2.01 miles from Harlow Town Station
1.6 miles from Harlow Town Centre
1.89 miles from Princess Alexandra Hospital
1.1 miles from thr M11
0.3 miles from the local medical centre
0.3 miles from a dentist
0.32 miles from an Ofsted rated good primary school
0.44 miles from an Ofsted rated good secondary school
Broadband speed is ultrafast
All major mobile network signals are very good
Air quality is 2 where 1 is the best and 10 is worst.
Onto the property itself.
Apart from the fact that it is old in parts and Grade II listed, its quirkiness starts with the fact that downstairs there are 3 bedrooms (technically all doubles, although 1 of the bedrooms is really a single (but it does currently have a double bed in it)), a bathroom and a cleverly concealed mini kitchenette (more about that later). On the first floor there is an open plan lounge / diner / kitchen, a 4th bedroom, and then there is the added bonus of alterations carried out by the current owners. They took down the low ceiling to create a gorgeous high 'vault' ceiling, and added a fantastic mezzenine.
So let us start with the upper part of this amazing property. The open plan lounge / diner / kitchen is a good size. There two large double aspect sash windows which allows in oodles of natural light. The floor is solid oak and is gorgeous. There is a feature fireplace (that is currently sealed), that I am told can be opened up and used as an open fire again.
The current owners have a 6 seater dining table and chairs that fits in extremely well.
The kitchen area is fully fitted and has built in fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave/oven combi, and a ceramic hob. There is a stainless steel sink and drainer. There are plenty of storage by way of drawers and cupboards. There is a good size work top.
To the rear of the kitchen is a shower room with WC & wash basin. The Shower is an all singing all dancing jacuzzi style shower / Turkish bath with built in radio & mood lighting!
To the rear of this is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes.
In the lounge there is a modern funky spiral staircase that leads to a large mezzanine. The current owners have soft furnishings and TV in this space. At 9.2 sqm it is a super space and there is lots of storage.
Downstairs (ground floor) we have three more bedrooms. Two are large doubles and the third a small double / large single.
They all have real wooden floors.
Bedroom 1 has double aspect windows and is a large double.
Bedroom 2 is also a large double while Bedroom 3 technically is a double but is perhaps better used as a larger single bedroom. The family shower room is also on the ground floor and has a walk in shower, WC & wash basin.
Finally there is this 'mini' kitchenette which is a bit 'heath robinson' but extremely useful and fully functional. Concealed under a work surface which opens and folds back is a one and a half sink and worktop. Underneath is a washing machine and an oven. (clever) and in theory you could turn the downstairs into an annex of sorts.
Unfortunately or fortunately (which ever way you look at it), there is very little garden with this property. This suits the current owners perfectly as they are not gardeners and the small garden they do have, they enjoy sitting in watching the birds that come down to feed from feeders place on the private but common communal piece of land opposite.
There is allocated parking plus additional private parking for visitors etc.
Conclusion:
Is this property going to be for everyone? Absolutely not! However, it is most certainly going to 'float someone's boat' because this quirky 1500 sq. Ft. Property with bundles of character, lots of history, lots of rumoured notoriety is going to be the ideal home for some lucky family. Located in such a quiet setting with all major amenities close to hand, it is definitely going to tick all of someone's boxes!
