Enjoy Morning Coffee On Your Veranda Before Strolling Through Cliff Gardens To Oliver’s For Brunch By The Beach. This elegant period property, in the heart of the Clifftown conservation area, has so much on your doorstep and fabulous estuary views.

Southend has changed so much since this imposing four bedroom property was built in 1810. But Clifftown Parade is a small pocket of the past, where it’s not just the wide tree-lined street and perfectly preserved buildings that remain unchanged.

The original 19th century homeowners would no doubt have enjoyed exploring the beautiful Cliff Gardens before taking a stroll along the Esplanade towards the pier. And you and your family can still enjoy such wholesome pleasures in 2024.

You’ll love sitting on your south facing veranda, perfect for reading the papers with a freshly brewed morning coffee. It’s a lovely, leafy space with a Mediterranean feel, offering shelter from the midday sun and privacy from the street below.

As you step inside you’re welcomed by the original parquet flooring and a gorgeous curved staircase.

This impressive Regency property was designed to be a versatile family home that would come into its own when entertaining. Subsequent improvements and a substantial rear extension have transformed the ground floor, turning it into an even more sociable space that’s perfect for our busy modern lives.

There are two spacious reception rooms at the front but the substantial 'Clive Christian' bespoke kitchen at the rear will be the heart of this family home.

There’s plenty of storage space in the beautiful fitted units and central island, topped with granite work surfaces. A large roof lantern floods the room with light.

French doors give access from the kitchen to the back garden but the best place to enjoy garden views will be the additional large reception room at the rear. With a glazed door and large floor to ceiling windows it would be ideal as a sunny garden room to enjoy your morning coffee or a games room to entertain guests.

The ground floor improvements are practical too. There’s a ground-floor shower room, a handy utility room and a separate boiler room with additional storage space. There’s also a passage to the side aspect, which will be an ideal storage space to house bikes or the bits and bobs you take to the beach.

The journey to the first floor landing will be a period drama in itself, ascending the beautiful sweeping staircase to the first floor.

It’s worth stopping briefly on the landing to admire the bespoke Rosewood cabinetry and stained-glass window before exploring the four double bedrooms and family bathroom.

The two front bedrooms provide views over the Cliff Gardens towards the estuary and the world-famous Southend Pier just off to the east.

The largest bedroom, currently used as the master, is at the rear of the property.

You won’t feel cheated by missing out on the estuary views as this room has a roof lantern which floods it with light and floor-to-ceiling windows with a lovely view of the back garden below.

The fourth bedroom is currently used as a walk-in wardrobe. This versatile room could also make a great nursery or home office.

The four piece family bathroom has a bespoke Clive Christian suite which includes a roll-top bath and a separate shower cubicle.

The private landscaped garden at the rear has been expertly designed and landscaped by an award-winning gardener. It’s the perfect outdoor space to relax and will really come into its own if you’re a sociable family who loves to throw a party. After a busy day at the beach you can all come back for a BBQ.

There are two sheltered parking spaces to the rear (gated access via Alexandra Road), in addition to the residents permit parking to the front.

If you have younger children, Barons Court Primary School and Nursery (rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted) is only a 10 minute walk away. Westcliff & Southend grammar schools are also both rated ‘Outstanding’.

Although Clifftown Parade is in a quiet days-gone-by location it’s only a 10 minute walk to the High Street, with all the big name shops and places to eat you’d expect in a city centre.

It’s a similar distance to Southend Central (C2C) station, with the train journey to Central London taking around an hour.

If you’re heading further afield, the airport is only a 10-minute taxi ride away, with flights to numerous European destinations.

This elegant and imposing Regency residence is in a fabulous conservation area location, with Cliff Gardens, the Esplanade and the beach right on your doorstep.

As most of these large period properties have been converted into flats, this is a genuinely rare opportunity to buy a substantial family home on Clifftown Parade.
