Nestled on an established and generous 0.24 acre plot in a village setting, this detached chalet/bungalow has undergone a stunning transformation after being redesigned and reimagined by a London architect to fulfil the brief of the current owner. This brief has been meticulously executed and created a  contemporary detached home which is filled with natural light and where every window frames a view of the outside space and beautiful gardens.

The extensive program of building work was completed in 2021 and included extensions, internal and external alterations including new external windows and doors throughout, a new grey slate tiled roof and a complete re-fit and refurbishment.

The accommodation opens with a spacious and light entrance hall where double doors provide a stunning view through the rear facing living room and into the rear garden beyond. At the heart of the ground floor space is the open plan kitchen and dining space which features at its core a large central island unit with breakfast bar seating. Quartz worktops compliment the extensive range of white units and integrated appliances include Franke boiling water tap, electric induction hob with downdraft extractor, electric conventional oven, combination oven/grill and integrated fridge. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the dining space and continues across the rear of the property into the main living area. A separate utility room and ground floor shower room add to additional functionality. The ground floor 3rd bedroom features built in storage space and provides flexibility to the accommodation.

The original open tread stairs have been renovated and provide access to the first floor accommodation and two double bedrooms with a stylish family bathroom. The spacious principal bedroom boasts a dressing area and en-suite shower room. Throughout the house comfort is ensured year-round with gas central heating and double glazing throughout.

Externally the overall plot extends to approximately 0.24 of an acre. The front garden is enclosed and features flower and shrub borders with a gravel driveway which features inset paving around the front entrance and provides plenty of parking as well as access to the semi integral garage.

The established rear garden is perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxation with extensive lawns, well stocked beds and borders, ornamental trees and shrubs as well as many apple trees. A standout feature is the modern and generously sized garden room which offers versatility to be used as a home office, hobby room or even a home gym area. There are additional storage sheds and greenhouses to ensure there is plenty to keep any keen gardeners happy. 


The property sits on the edge of the villages of Danbury and Bicknacre. Both are known for their natural beauty, with picturesque landscapes scattered throughout the surrounding countryside. Transportation in the area is primarily reliant on the road network and there is a regular bus service running through the village to South Woodham Ferrers and the city of Chelmsford. The village is also conveniently located for easy access to the A130 and A12 which connect to Chelmsford and Southend as well as other nearby towns and cities. The closest railway station is South Woodham Ferrers, which provides regular train services to London Liverpool Street and other destinations. 

Bicknare itself retains its rural charm while offering modern amenities and services to its residents. The village has a primary school, St. Andrew's Church, a community centre, and a few shops and businesses and a school bus service connects the village to local secondary schools. Many of the houses in Bicknacre are traditional in style, with some dating back several centuries, adding to the village's character. The surrounding countryside provides opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, and horse riding. The nearby Hanningfield Reservoir offers water sports and fishing opportunities, as well as nature trails for birdwatching and wildlife enthusiasts.
