Leigh Hill, Leigh-on-sea, Essex

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A rare opportunity to purchase part of Leigh history with this absolutely charming three/four bedroom detached property, originally built in 1875 as two separate cottages and then later knocked into one dwelling. We understand it first housed a bakery but was then turned into the well known Tea Rooms back in 1950's then in the 1970's it was re-instated into a tea room and also a residential dwelling. Whilst requiring refurbishment we strongly recommend an internal viewing to fully appreciate what a wonderful property this is.

This charming property was originally built as two separate cottages but was later converted into one dwelling with accommodation comprising; entrance hall, a large through lounge with estuary views, separate dining room, additional sitting room/ground floor bedroom and a kitchen which again offers estuary views to both side and rear.

There are two separate staircases which lead to the first floor where you will find three bedrooms, two of which are located to the rear and offer estuary views and a spacious bathroom again with estuary views to the rear.

The property sits on a generous sized south backing plot in the heart of Leigh Conservation area and boasts well tended gardens which surround the property, along with the huge benefit of off street for two vehicles to the front.

Although requiring refurbishment, we strongly recommend immediate viewing of this beautiful home as properties in this location with such fabulous estuary views very rarely come to the market.
