Welcome Home

From Lovelace Avenue, pull onto a block-paved driveway framed by attractive shrubs, where you will find parking for two cars. Note the lantern-style outdoor lighting and the feature arched window with stained-glass accents crowing the front door, then step through into the entrance porch, where a door opens into a bright and airy hallway. Dado and picture rails complement the coving to the high ceiling with pendant lighting, while a radiator provides a warm welcome. The large tiles underfoot draw your attention past the staircase through into the main living space.

Quality Time Together

Head through the door on the right to discover an excellently sized sitting room illuminated by a chandelier light fitting and a big bay window overlooking the front – a lovely spot to read while keeping an eye out for guests.

During the chilly winter months, why not gather with your loved ones around the cast iron fireplace while admiring the gorgeous tiled panels and ornate timber surround? The wide, laminate wood flooring is easy to keep clean and can easily be dressed by a plush rug. Thanks to the picture rail wrapping around the room, you can hang all your favourite family photographs and artwork for daily viewing.

Locate the fabulous kitchen-diner and family zone straight ahead from the hallway. As you step onto the fresh tiled floor, your focus is pulled up to the stylish panelled ceiling and over to the bi-folding doors in the casual lounge area that opens onto the terrace.

Neatly tucked to one side, the galley-style has a full complement of base and wall units –¬ divided by a colourful tiled splashback ¬¬– all within easy reach. The extensive roll-top work surfaces help with prepping for those big family meals. It also comes with a stainless-steel inset sink, space for range cooker with extractor hood above, and space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher.

A door from here leads into a utility illuminated by a Velux window and incorporating additional units with worktops, integrated storage, and tiled flooring. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge-freezer. Tucked behind, you’ll find a useful, partly tiled downstairs cloakroom with basin vanity unit and Victorian-style loo, and a heated towel rail.

Returning to the dining area, you will see that there is plenty of room for a large dining table, plus integrated cupboards and a feature fireplace with a timber surround. The vaulted ceiling to the relaxed family lounge hosts two Velux windows, while the bi-folding doors can be drawn back in the summer for those lazy afternoon lunches and neighbourly BBQs.

Two Floors of Accommodation

From the hallway, ascend the stairs to reach a carpeted first-floor landing with integrated storage and a door to another staircase providing access to the second-floor master suite.

Bedroom two – a large, front-facing double ¬– features a tiled fireplace and hearth with timber surround, laminate flooring underfoot and coving to the ceiling above. The highlight, however, comes in the form of a private balcony with timber flooring and balustrade. Why not sit out here to enjoy a morning coffee and watch the world go by?

Bedroom three sits to the rear of the property and comes with a laminate floor, tiled feature fireplace, and picture rail. The smallest of the four bedrooms has laminate flooring and a view over the balcony. It could make a pleasant nursery, playroom, or study.

The bright family bathroom combines modern style with touches of character in the form of a Victorian-style loo with high-level cistern and Victorian-style taps and shower attachment mounted above the screened panelled bath. Contemporary features include the elegant basin vanity unit and mirrored cabinet above, tall heated towel rail, black-and-white tiling underfoot and white brick-effect wall tiling.

Head back to the first-floor lobby, which ascends to a master bedroom lit by Velux windows and spotlights. Find useful storage in the eaves and a large footprint lined with laminate flooring. The generous en suite contains a tiled shower cubicle, pedestal basin, loo, extractor fan and a rear Velux window. Alternatively, this lovely private suite could be used for guests or as a peaceful home office, with the second bedroom and balcony used as the master.
Step Outside

Number 17’s enclosed west-facing garden is divided between a lawn and the sizable paved terrace – a charming entertaining area ready for al fresco dining and bordered by shrubs and flowers. Why not create a little herb garden here? The slab paving establishes a pathway to the rear, where you will find the shed.

On Your Doorstep

Lovelace Avenue is only a short journey to Southend’s bustling high street, seafront amusements and restaurants, and the esplanades and parades that run along a sting of well-served beaches. Day-to-day amenities are only a stone’s throw away, from a Sainsbury’s Local and Tesco Express and takeaways to places of worship, a surgery and library, plus clubs and play areas, including Southchurch Park.

The A13 provides a quick route onto the A127, allowing a straightforward commute or day trips into London or towards Chelmsford. Trains to Fenchurch Street run from Southend East – only a short stroll from your front door – in under an hour.

There is a range of independent options and state schools within the area with ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted ratings, including Southend High School for Girls, which is just over half a mile away.
