A truly unique opportunity to purchase a freehold residential building, containing two converted apartments in a fantastic location, close to Brentwood Station.
Offered for sale on a guide price of £800,000 - £850,000, this property could be an excellent buy-to-let option, as well as having the potential to revert to a family home once more.
Brilliantly converted in 2006, this semi-detached building provides over 1900 sq. ft. of living space, made up of a charming two-bedroom garden flat, as well as a four-bedroom, three-bathroom, duplex apartment with Juliet balcony occupying the first and second floors. Each apartment is self-contained with its own front door and the building benefits from off-street parking to the front, providing four parking spaces.
THE GARDEN FLAT
Currently tenanted, the garden flat benefits from a lovely kitchen/ diner fitted with washing machine and dishwasher, as well as a feature fire surround and patio doors leading to the garden.
To the front of the flat is a good size lounge and the main bedroom. To the rear you will find the bathroom and second bedroom overlooking the pretty garden area.
The current tenants have expressed an interest to remain if possible and were sourced and vetted by us. If you are looking to purchase for investment this option would provide an immediate, convenient revenue stream.
THE DUPLEX APARTMENT
Set over two floors, this spacious four, double bedroom, apartment provides versatile living with the top two bedrooms both benefiting from en suite bathrooms.
On the first floor there is a good size main bathroom, as well as two further double bedrooms and a generous open plan kitchen/living area. The open plan living space is blessed by being triple aspect, with windows to the front and rear of the room flooding the space with light, as well as a charming Juliet balcony to the side, overlooking mature shrubs and trees.
If purchasing for investment, the apartment could be rented as a house share or even as a possible corporate let with the proximity to the station. The apartment would also suit investors looking to take advantage of higher yields with short term lets through Airbnb and similar platforms.
The private rear garden is accessed from the kitchen/diner in the garden flat, which leads to a decked area, with a backdrop of mature trees and shrubs. There is also side access from the garden leading to the front of the property. The area spanning across the entire frontage of the property provides off-street parking, with four parking spaces.
Situated just a short walk to Brentwood Rail Station, providing excellent transport links into London, Liverpool Street. Brentwood will also be part of Crossrail network when it finally makes its long-awaited debut. Crossrail will carry passengers from Shenfield, through central London and then out to west via Heathrow, terminating at Reading.
A VENDOR'S STORY...
Simply sit back and dive into the history of this superb freehold, residential building in the words of the current owner.
"I purchased 22 Warleywoods Crescent in the winter of 1986. This was owned by the health authority along with the other properties in the Crescent and the Hospital Cottages by the railway bridge. The property was derelict when I moved in with my three children.
We lived in two upstairs rooms - one a bedroom, the other a makeshift kitchen/living room and were fortunate to have a bathroom which was just about working. The rest was to be updated as funds allowed. I remember that day very well. Fighting to get to the front door through the rickety gate and overgrown shrubbery but it felt like home.
In 2006, I extended and converted my home to two self-contained apartments, being 22 & 23 and later used the two loft rooms at 23 for my design and creative work. Whilst living close to the town and the railway station, birds can be heard singing from the garden and the open doors from the top flat. It's as though you are in the peaceful countryside. I have explored and had many walks in the grounds just behind me, which was the tranquil healing space of the Hospital residence.
Many of my neighbours of Warleywoods Crescent and the adjoining Hospital Cottages are still there today, which is testimony of a nice place to live. I'm now ready to pass both and my only homes over to others and shall look forward to seeing if they have been returned to the beautiful family home they could be or somewhere which gives others a stepping stone in life and tranquil home."
