General About... 
The property is located on Bridgemarsh Lane, a secluded and rural position, located only 17 miles from Chelmsford City and within walking distance (0.15 miles) to Althorne Railway Station (offering services to London Liverpool Street), and Bridgemarsh Marina and Sea Wall.
The property boasts a 7.8 acre plot (S.T.L.S) and, in the agent's opinion, would make an ideal re-development opportunity, whether that be a redevelopment extension plan for the current property, or the potential to knock down and rebuild a larger residence, as other property's on Bridgemarsh Lane have done (obviously all development would be subject to planning permission).
The plot in its entirety offers multiple usage, with formal gardens, woodlands, and a larger field that is adjacent to the sea wall, and would be ideal for Equestrian usage.
The property will have to be viewed to be appreciated, with viewings strictly by appointment via Owen Lyons, Chelmsford.
