IF you’re looking for character when it comes to searching for a new home, look no further than this historic property in Benfleet.

Found on Mount Road, the five-bedroom detached house is on the market for an eye-watering £1.075million.

Built in the late 1800s, the property - which is being marketed by Fisks Estate Agents - still boasts some of its original features but has also been updated to a very high standard.

The house, which is accessed after heading beyond a gated private drive and garage, oozes class and style.


Retro - the house was built in the late 1800s

The original entrance hall has a stone floor and a Dickensian wooden staircase.

No expense has been spared, with the kitchen-diner perfectly sized and offering tremendous space along with granite worktops.

The lounge shows the crossover between two time periods, with beams and a wood burner rolling back the years.


Spacious - the lounge offers a host of original features

Versatility is also found within the house as the dining room could also be converted into another bedroom.

The master bedroom has its own dressing area, built-in furniture and luxury en-suite.


Upstairs - the property has five bedrooms

You have to leave the main building to find the fourth bedroom, which offers large living space and another en-suite.

There is also a utility room, offering space for appliances and good storage space at the rear.


While the inside of the house oozes class, the outside of the property is just as appealing.

The current vendors have added wooden decking in the dreamy back garden.


Outside - there is a large garden and summerhouse

Along with the extensive plot, there is a summerhouse and purpose-built office which could also be converted into a games room.

But you will need to move quickly if you want to bag the keys to this stunning property.
