Full description

Background and History
The property represents an exciting and rare opportunity to acquire a refurbishment opportunity comprising an attractive 1930's detached house, separate 1950's detached bungalow (currently let on AST agreement), farm shop (subject to 1954 protected business tenancy) and a yard containing around 17,000 ft of outbuildings all set within 11 acres including gardens and paddocks.
The property would make an ideal 'lifestyle' property, particularly for those with equestrian interests coupled with the option of running a business on site (subject to permissible uses), and further income generation potential from the bungalow and farm shop.
This delightful location and setting; with the main house positioned atop of a long tree lined driveway, could provide the ideal position for creating a new country house surrounded by its own mature acreage (subject to planning consent), close to the pretty village of Writtle on the outskirts of Chelmsford city.

Setting and location
The property enjoys a wonderful semi-rural setting on the outskirts of Writtle, surrounded by mainly arable farmland. The entrance leads directly off the A1060, with the main house set back around 300 yds from the road offering an appealing mix of convenience and tranquillity.
Local amenities can be found in nearby Writtle village and Roxwell village, both just 1.5 miles away. The bustling city of Chelmsford (2.5 miles) offers multiple facilities and renowned schools including King Edward Grammar School and Chelmsford County High School for Girls. Other highly acclaimed local schools include New Hall (6 miles) and Felsted School (12 miles).
For the commuter, Chelmsford mainline rail station offers services into London Liverpool Street (32 minutes). Local road communications are close by; A414 (2.5 miles), A130 (4.5 miles), A12 (6 miles), A120 (10 miles), M25 (14 miles) and M11 (16 miles).
