Dedham Vale, Green Lane, Boxted, Essex

Property Description

Full description

A rare and exciting opportunity to purchase approximately 38.5 acres of stunning ‘Constable’ countryside, bounded by the Stour Valley, with an existing working vineyard and planning permission for an impressive secluded house of around 8,000 sqft.

The unique site includes a small working vineyard along with 5.65 acres of mature vines, meadows, mixed woodland, a working winery and other buildings ancillary to the vineyard business totalling almost 4900 sqft, plus a separate workers cottage. There is a beautiful lake that divides the site from north to south, originally created for agricultural purposes.

The current plans for the house have been designed by award-winning architects Purcell, with interior design by RPW Design. The permitted development area for this dwelling includes a four-car garage and workshop, a glass house and around 2,400 sqft of storage cellar below the rear paved courtyard. The majority of the utility infrastructure is now in place. A full set of tender documents for the approved development is available on request.

The site is bordered to the west by open fields and the Essex Way. Originally an area of orchards and farming, a portion of the land was converted in 1988 as one of England’s first vineyards. As a leader in what has become known as the Renaissance of the English Wine industry, the vineyard has subsequently gone on to produce award-winning wines.

The woodland area along the northern boundary is positioned to protect the vines from the cooler winds. The large meadow area to the east of the existing vineyard has been left open for additional vines.

The land is situated around five miles to the north of Colchester in Dedham Vale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Essex-Suffolk border. Colchester station runs direct rail services to London Liverpool Street, with a journey time of around 50 minutes. The A12 is easily accessible for routes in and out of London.
