A rare opportunity to acquire a stunning plot approaching 1.5 acres, with views over countryside, particularly splendid as the sun sets over the 120 acre Ardleigh reservoir. There is currently a two bedroom 1950s detached bungalow and a small workshop with storage yard occupied by the family small plant hire business. The existing bungalow could be demolished to make way for a magnificent country home or additional dwellings, subject to obtaining planning consent.
The bungalow has a central entrance hall with stairs to the first floor attic room. There is a lounge to the front with fireplace and bay window. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The kitchen has a built-in pantry and door leading to a cloakroom, a rear porch/lean-to and door to the garden.
There is a gravelled/part concrete driveway leading to the bungalow, workshop/yard and land to the rear. Whilst the majority of the plot is grassed, there are several outbuildings, mature shrubs and trees in the ground.
We are advised that part of the land to the rear cannot be used for commercial purposes other than for the planting or growing of agricultural or horticultural crops or the keeping of livestock or horses.
The Gables occupies a prominent position in this highly regarded village on the Essex/Suffolk border close to Dedham and is within a short distance of the popular Wooden Fender public house, Texaco garage with local SPAR shop.
The property is close to many amenities including Ardleigh Reservoir sailing club and coarse fishery, Colchester Bowling club, Orchard Barns nursery and the wide range of village centre facilities. It is within easy reach of Colchester with its excellent range of shopping and recreational amenities and mainline railway station and the riverside town of Manningtree is close at hand with further amenities and mainline railway station.
