Birch House is an impressive neo-georgian detached property, and is certainly one of the best known houses on Tomswood Road. Built in the mid 1950's and occupying a plot of approx. 280' deep by 52' wide, the property was once owned by an heiress of the Dunhill cigarette dynasty. The immediate neighbourhood features many large houses which have recently undergone major refurbishment or rebuilding and, because of it's generous plot size, this is something that can certainly be considered with this property.
The property is located in a very popular position and is served by a number of underground stations giving access to the City and the West End, as well as a number of bus routes that run nearby. Tomswood Road is immediately off Manor Road which features some of the areas largest and most impressive houses. The M11 motorway is just a short drive, giving access to the M25, and the A406 North Circular Road is also nearby.
The spacious accommodation, which has been well maintained by the current owners, offers three large reception areas, three large bedrooms, with the master featuring an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room (formerly 4th bedroom), a family bathroom and a guest cloakroom. Parking is well catered for by a detached garage, additional carport and ample off street parking.
Being a family home, schools are important and there are a number of these, both primary and secondary, within the vicinity. The highly regarded Chigwell Independent School is just a short drive away.
There a number of local shopping parades, such as Woodford Bridge and Brook Parade, and Barkingside High Road is just a short distance away. All major supermarkets are just a few minutes drive away and larger shopping malls such as Westfield and Bluewater are also easily accessible.
With the landscape of Tomswood Hill fast improving, the rare opportunity of acquiring a property such as Birch House, should not be missed as this has the potential to become one of Chigwell's major homes.
