Full description

Ballast House is one of four contemporary, executive style properties designed and built by Vaughan & Blyth. Residing on a third of an acre plot, this well-proportioned family home offers the discerning buyer the opportunity to live in one of Colchester's most sought after waterfront villages. The property is accessed via a five bar gate, which opens onto a shingle area offering ample parking and leads to a double garage.

On entering this well presented residence, an attractive hallway with wooden floors leads through to the three main reception areas. The fitted kitchen/diner opens onto the perfectly suited west-facing patio for al fresco entertaining, whilst the useful garden room allows the party to continue, even when the unpredictable English weather becomes predictable. Upstairs four good size bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, an en suite and family bathroom can be found.
Location The property is situated on Ballast Quay Road; a residential 'no through' country lane which leads down to the River Roman, near its influx to the Colne. The river divides the villages of Fingringhoe and Wivenhoe where a summer ferry provides cross-river services during a three-hour period around high tide.

The centre of the village is designated a conservation area with its traditional village duck pond, red telephone box, church and well reputed Whalebone pub. There is also a primary school, village hall and social club. Whilst Wivenhoe offers the nearest train station, London commuters may prefer Colchester's mainline station approximately 4.5 miles away.

The general area is rich in country and coastal surrounds, having a good local bridleway/byway/footpath network around the village and down by the river, the marshes are locally known as salt marshes; part of the National Trust's Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve. Mersea Island is only 5.5 miles away for good sailing and seafood too!
