Property ID : 2515
For Sale, Under Offer £500,000.00 - Houses
Originally the Toll Keepers Cottage on the border of Nazeing Common, The Upper Gate House is believed to date back to the mid 19th Century but has been the subject of sympathetic restoration, and extension, to now provide spacious accommodation with many character features and benefits from gated parking for several vehicles and a secluded garden approaching 100′
The property enjoys the best of both worlds. Nestling within an historic conservation area but within easy reach of local shops (approx. 1.4 miles). It is perfect for the commuter with Broxbourne British Rail Station (approx. 2.8 miles) and Epping Underground (approx. 6.8 miles), whilst a selection of reputable schools catering for most ages and abilities are also close to hand.
Finally, and well worthy of note, the avid golfer is well catered for with Nazeing Golf Course being just a few minutes drive, whilst Nazeing Common and the surrounding countryside provides a wealth of recreation activities.
