Do you dream of owning an immaculate seafront apartment sandwiched between Southend's vibrant parade and Leigh's historic and trendy streets? Then E11, The Shore - a two-bed, third-floor apartment on The Leas boasting stunning estuary views, underground parking, concierge service, and a private gym - is perfect for you. With several train stations close by, it is also ideally positioned for commuters.
An Impressive Welcome
The Shore's modern architecture, attractive brushed steel and glass balustrades to the balconies, and dramatic front entrance hints at E11's chic interior. Park in the gated underground facility before arriving in the pristine and welcoming ground-floor reception and concierge lobby. Take the stairs or the lift to the third floor, where you will find a private door to your apartment.
Inside, you are greeted by a bright, oak-floored hallway with a handy storage cupboard for coats and shoes. Note the attractive coving and the conveniently placed heating controls.
Turn left down the hallway and head straight through into the beautiful open plan kitchen and living room, where the gorgeous oak flooring continues. The kitchen itself is part stone tiles underfoot, complementing the granite worktops and the range of sleek units, illuminated by spotlighting above.
With integrated appliances including an induction hob with attractive extractor, Siemens fridge and freezer, Zug double oven and electric grill, and a Zug coffee machine, you'll soon invite your friends over for a meal to show off your new apartment - and its Sonos sound system. When the party's over, the integrated washing machine and Siemens dishwasher along with the one-and-a-half bowl sink will take care of the rest.
Relax & Unwind
The double-glazed windows in the kitchen and living room are fitted with blinds, some of which are operated by remote control. This feature makes it easier than ever to control the ambience when lounging in the seating area or gathering with loved ones around the dining table, fantastic sliding doors to both the east and west balconies either side.
Come summer, why not make use of your two decked and tiled private terraces to enjoy some al fresco dining, listen to the quiet clanking of boats on the estuary, watch the sun rising over the water from the eastern balcony, or savour a drink on the externally lit east terrace? As the seasons change, so does your view.
Bedrooms one and two are identically sized doubles lined with a twist-pile carpet and decorated with fresh, neutral tones. E11's Sonos system - with integrated ceiling speakers - continues in both rooms, offering their occupants another way to destress after a busy day.
The master features in-built wardrobes, spotlighting, and large, blind-fitted windows granting estuary views. The luxurious and fully tiled en suite has a walk-in shower and extractor, heated towel rail, mounted mirror above vanity unit, stylish basin and loo. Why not wake yourself up gently by playing some music through the built-in speakers while you shower?
Bedroom two benefits from wardrobe space, spotlighting, and roller blinds to the window. Across the hall, you will locate the elegant, hotel-grade bathroom. This spacious retreat boasts beautiful floor-to-ceiling, spot-lit grey tiling, a large rain-head shower with glass screen, high-end bath with chrome mixer tap, basin unit with mounted mirror above, and loo.
