Don’t miss this rare opportunity to live in one of Chigwell’s most exclusive addresses
As one of Chigwell’s most exclusive addresses, it’s rare to find any property for sale in Stradbroke Drive, let alone one for less than £2 million.
So auctioneers are excited about the sale of 60 Stradbroke Drive in Chigwell, a large family property which has come to the market for the first time in more than 65 years.
The spacious home is being offered for sale by SDL Property Auctions in partnership with Bairstow Eves in a Timed Auction with bidding open 24/7 and a *guide price of £1.65 million.
Andrew Parker, managing director and auctioneer at SDL Property Auctions, said: “This is an exciting and rare opportunity to buy a property in what is undoubtedly the finest and most enviable road in Chigwell.
“Only a handful of properties have been sold on this road in the past five years, all for over £2 million, so there is the opportunity to secure it in our auction for an extremely attractive price.”
Having been in the same family for decades, the property does now require modernisation throughout but Andrew says it provides a solid basis to create a truly stunning family home.
He said: “Every buyer wants to put their own stamp on a new property and this one provides the perfect canvas to create a real showstopper of a home with large, well-proportioned rooms offering a great space for family living, with that all-important outdoor green space and even a home office.”
60 Stradbroke Drive occupies a large plot tucked away in the corner of the street. A block-paved drive at the front provides parking for several vehicles and leads to the integral double garage. The ground floor features a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, two large sitting rooms connected by sliding doors, plus a further dining room. There is also a hall, porch and downstairs cloakroom, while upstairs are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study.
At the back of the property is an attractive private rear garden with a lawn, pond, rockery, mature trees and shrubs. Andrew says its size gives the property even greater potential: “The house is already large but, if required, the plot is big enough to provide the opportunity to extend even further, subject to the usual planning consents, while still maintaining a lovely garden area.”
The house is ideally located in a quiet corner position close to amenities. There is a Central Line tube station just a mile away, along with several well regarded state and private schools, supermarkets and leisure facilities all within easy reach. Transport links are excellent, with M11 & M25 junctions nearby.
60 Stradbroke Drive is to be sold in a Timed Auction, ending at midday on Monday 10th May. To arrange a viewing or find out more about the property, please call the team at Bairstow Eves on 0203 369 1180.
