THE LOCATION Watling street is perfectly located in the middle of the magnificent Medieval town of Thaxted, Essex with all the day to day amenities of life available within a short walk. Home to the distinguished Guildhall, eminent Thaxted Church and the restored John Webb's Windmill, Thaxted has a wonderful history which dates back to before the Domesday Book. Set against a backdrop of exquisite architecture, Thaxted is considered to be the jewel in the crown of Essex. The town is resplendent in architectural interest, unique in character with a flourishing community which remains today what it has been for the last ten centuries - a thriving town which moves with the times, but also embraces its heritage with admirable respect.

The market town of Great Dunmow is also close by offering schools, shopping, restaurants, public houses and many more recreational facilities. Further to this Great Dunmow also offers the A120 supplying further access to M11/M25 and of course London Stansted International Airport.

AGENTS NOTE: The information given in these particulars is intended to help you decide whether you wish to view this property and to avoid wasting your time in viewing unsuitable properties. We have tried to make sure that these particulars are accurate, but to a large extent we have to rely on what the seller tells us about the property. We do not check every single piece of information ourselves as the cost of doing so would be prohibitive and we do not wish to unnecessarily add to the cost of moving house. In accordance with the misrepresentation act, we are required to inform both potential vendors and purchasers, that from time to time both vendors and or purchasers, may be known by our staff, by way of previous customers, friends, neighbours, relatives, etc.

Once you find the property you want to buy, you will need to carry out more investigations into the property than it is practical or reasonable for an estate agent to do when preparing sales particulars. For example, we have not carried out any kind of survey of the property to look for structural defects and would advise any homebuyer to obtain a surveyor's report before exchanging contracts. If you do not have your own surveyor, we would be pleased to recommend one. We have not checked whether any equipment in the property (such as central heating) is in working order and would advise homebuyers to check this. You should also instruct a solicitor to investigate all legal matters relating to the property (e.g. title, planning permission etc.,), as these are specialist matters in which estate agents are not qualified. Your solicitor will also agree with the seller what items (e.g. carpets, curtains etc.,) will be included in the sale.
