DESCRIPTION An opportunity to purchase a building plot on the main road in Kirby le Soken with permission for the development of up to two dwellings. The plot measures approximately 40m X 35m, and will allow the dwellings to benefit from views across the countryside behind. Kirby le Soken is a popular village only 2 miles from the coast and to the east of Colchester. It benefits from two pubs, The Ship and The Red Lion which both have a good reputation for food and drink. There is also St Michael's Church and Church Hall, a village store and post office and a garage. Hamford Water can be found less than a mile to the north east of the village. It is a National Nature Reserve and is recognised as being an internationally important wetland for birds. Kirby Primary school is less than a mile away in Kirby Cross. Nearby secondary schooling is provided by Tendring Technology College and Clacton County High School. A large range of both independent and state schooling is available in Colchester. Colchester also provides numerous recreational and healthcare facilities. Presently there is a hedge along the road frontage of the site. Upon completion a licence will be granted to allow access along the edge of the agricultural field from Mumfords Lane for a maximum of three weeks to allow the purchaser to establish an entrance from The Street.  

DIRECTIONS From the A12 take the A120 signposted Harwich. After approximately 5 miles exit the A120 onto the A133, at the second roundabout take the first exit onto the B1033. Continue to follow the B1033 for 2 miles then turn right onto Golden Lane, at the T junction turn right onto the B1414. After a short distance turn left onto Walton Road.
