Full description

The property is a prominently positioned double fronted house dating from 1860. Set adjoining farmland to the rear and overlooking the Blackwater Estuary with Mersea Island in the distance at the front, there is plenty to admire. The house is in need of some modernisation and will be offered with no onward chain.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors, on the ground floor there are three nice size reception rooms, a kitchen / breakfast room, and study. On the first floor there are four en-suite bedrooms. There is a useful cellar divided into two areas.
Externally there are enclosed gardens to the side, a large covered area to the rear of the house, and detached Coach House with rooms arranged over two floors. In total the plot is approaching 0.4 of an acre. A driveway to the left hand side of the house offers off road parking and access to the detached garage.

The property is set on the approach road to Mersea Island. The house enjoys views over arable farmland to the rear which runs down eventually to the sea wall, and views over the Strood and Mersea Island to the front. Peldon is a sought after area, close to the neighbouring villages of Little Wigborough, Langenhoe and Abberton and approximately 2 miles from Abberton Reservoir and Nature Reserve. Britain's oldest recorded Town of Colchester lies 7 miles due north and Colchester (North) station is approximately 7.7 miles for a 55 minute train journey into London's Liverpool Street.
For those with water and sailing activities, Mersea Island is close by; an area which has become increasingly sought after through its excellent sailing clubs, Regatta week, fresh shellfish, seafood and oyster bars/eateries and lovely natural beaches to stroll along.
