Marine Parade, Leigh-On-Sea SS9


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Standing on a commanding plot on the Belton Hill end of Leigh's coveted Marine Estate, this contemporary detached family residence is only minutes from the town's well-heeled Broadway, a cluster of nature reserves, the historic delights of Old Leigh, and rail links to Fenchurch Street (c. 40mins).

Inside, a fresh Scandi-inspired aesthetic is echoed on all three storeys, while preserved coving and corbels, dado height wall panelling, chandelier fittings and carefully chosen double-glazed sash windows complement the classical elegance of the exterior. The property also benefits from gas central heating via traditional cast-iron radiators throughout, underfloor heating to the kitchen and a log-burning stove to the downstairs living area.

The enclosed rear garden has a delightful mixture of trees and shrubs, adding texture and shade to the paved dining terrace, easy-to-maintain lawn and shingle and paved borders. You'll also find parking for a few vehicles on the front drive.
