Situation & Description
This well-proportioned 3 bedroom detached house is situated in the popular village of Roydon on the Essex/Hertfordshire border. Set on it's own with no neighbours yet only a 5 minute walk to the High Street which hosts a newsagents, pharmacy, beauticians and a selection of pubs/restaurants to include: The White Hart and The New Inn. The larger towns of Hoddesdon and Harlow are both under 3 miles away offering a large selection of High Street shops and supermarkets.
The house is in a unique location fronting onto a lock in the River Stort and enjoying a high degree of seclusion and privacy with extensive riverside walks. Roydon has the benefit of being ideally located for easy access to many nature and leisure facilities including Lea Valley Country Park, Broxbourne Boat Hire, Paradise Wildlife Park, RSPB Rye Meads and Lea Valley White Water Park yet also having the convenience of excellent transport links via Roydon Station (7 minute walk) giving direct access into London in 18 minutes (Tottenham Hale) with the A414, A10 and M25 all within easy reach.
There is a primary school in Roydon, a good selection of High Schools nearby in Harlow and Hoddesdon with Hertford College around 6 miles away in Wormley.
The house is in good condition but has the potential for further improvement and/or extension to the side or rear (subject to gaining the necessary consents). The existing accommodation comprises: Entrance Hall, Living Room, Kitchen/Dining Room with 3 Bedrooms and large family Bathroom on the first floor. Outside, there is a terrace to the side and a south facing rear garden which backs onto the railway line so this will be a consideration for some, but fronting onto the River Stort and the secluded location will make up for this for many. There could also be an opportunity to start a small business due to the high footfall (again, subject to gaining the necessary consents).

By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
