What we think at the Zoe Napier Group: What a stunning house set back from the road with a beautifully balanced interior and perfectly placed just 2.5 miles from Colchester North's Station for the commuter. The current owners have undertaken vast remodelling, a double storey extension and numerous other improvements. We like the fact that the house is cost neutral to run with its high tariff solar panelling and Biomass energy boiler which returns approximately £2500 pa.
What the Owners Say: We love this house, especially after extending and bringing its specification to a high standard. We have not been here that long, but we have come to realise that we need to relocate as the chosen school for our daughters is over an hour away. We have a small flock of sheep and would be delighted if the new owner chose to keep them here!
The Facts The property is an instantly impressive home of Edwardian architecture, constructed circa 1910 with later additions including a more recent double storey extension which has allowed the owners to create a hotel style master suite with air conditioning (heating and cooling) and full gabled glass to the rear from which to enjoy the outlook.
Set in 4 acres, the property offers fabulous leisure & lifestyle facilities. These include a glass pool house with heated pool for year-round use, a bespoke oak-framed gazebo for a hot tub, a substantially built oak framed office, good storage and garaging, together with two stable blocks (up to 5 stables), paddocks and a former manage.
The house is beautifully presented and offers very well balanced accommodation to provide a kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, four reception rooms, a conservatory, five bedrooms with two en-suite bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Setting & Location The property is positioned and well screened from the road on Straight Road with two pairs of automatic entry gates providing access to the 4 acre plot with vehicle access points for the fuel deliveries and equestrian facilities.
The location is most convenient for Colchester with the Park & Ride (well screened) behind and Colchester Stadium beyond. Colchester North Station is a straightforward 2.5 mile walk, cycle or drive and the town centre is a little further beyond.
Boxted village lies to the North of Colchester and the property sits on the outskirts of Boxted, just under two miles from its centre. The surrounding area consists of numerous smallholding style homes with either equestrian, livestock or horticultural uses.
Conveniently placed for good schooling with accessibility for Littlegarth (4.5 miles) and so too for Colchester High School and Grammar School. Boxted St Peter's CEVC Primary School (Ofsted Good). Stoke by Nayland and Colchester Golf Club are also nearby.
