Planning permission granted for the development of a four bedroom detached house to rear of plot in addition to mixed use main dwelling.

70 years of business, house and home.

Hall’s Row is a dwelling dating back to the 1600's, 400 years of farming, industrial and residential.

Formally owned by a retired Major in the Royal Engineers, ‘The Major’ ran his car hire business well into his 80’s from Hall’s Row, renting auto’s to the community for generations. Having such a large piece of land allowed for many cars to be stored in the garden at any one time!

Planning permission has also been granted for a four bedroom dwelling in the grounds, a major point to note for onward potential gains.

As you approach the house through the wrought iron gates, the Tudor facade echos an alternative time period, far away from the trappings of 2020. Restored fireplaces, timber beams and original features fill the ground floor. Upstairs, a flying freehold houses a bathroom, re-plastered bedrooms galore and a back room featuring a classic double staircase, one for the servants, one for the owner.

The principle bedroom accessible via these stairs feels historic, pitched into the upper echelons of the property - there is huge potential to create a separate dressing room, office and ensuite bathroom.

And during these Covid times, a garden like this provides a tranquil space to saunter and unwind. There is a treasure trove of fig trees, pink lady apples & blackberries to name a few, and a unloved pond waiting to be restored to its former glory.

Horndon-on-the-Hill is a much loved, ancient village, appearing in the Domesday book and featuring a past wool-market dating back to the early 15th century. The Swan & The Bell, the latter of which has an award winning kitchen, are both popular local pubs a short walk. The local primary school achieves excellent results and is a short walk.

Quietly located on a no-through road, the nearest train station is Stanford-Le-Hope, although locals use Laindon Station, only 4 miles away and 35 minutes into Fenchurch Street station, and linking with Barking for London Underground . The A13 is the nearest fast road into London, taking well under an hour to get to the fringes of the City.
