Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ideally located to the north of Colchester on the outskirts of the ever popular village of Great Horkesley, is this imposing, three bedroomed, three reception roomed, detached, family home. Originally built in the mid 19th century as a game keepers cottage for Terrace Hall, the property benefited from a double storey extension (constructed in approximately 1988) to make family life more accommodating. The property has been owned by the same family for 30 years. Previous owners have interestingly included; a consultant psychiatrist, as well as Dorothy Lightfoot, a local artist best known for her oil paintings of Stour barges and landscapes of Suffolk. It is, therefore, fitting that the current owner is a former senior partner of a firm of solicitors with offices throughout East Anglia.

The property is set out over two floors and retains its charm and some original features. The ground floor consists of an entrance hall with parquet wooden flooring providing access to a study, a living room (with matching floor and multi fuel burner), access to a second reception, a dining area and fitted kitchen/breakfast room. The first floor comprises a good sized landing, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a remodelled modern shower room with twin wash hand basins. Outside the property is accessed via two attractive curved brick walls with wrought iron driveway gates. The stone/shingle drive allows ample parking and leads to a detached oversized garage with electric roll up door.

Location
Great Horkesley village has local facilities such as a Post Office/General Stores, wine merchant, pubs and a restaurant. A wider range of facilities are available from the main town of Colchester. Colchester is England's oldest recorded town and offers an extensive range of amenities, as well as a mainline station with fastest trains to the City taking 48 minutes. Local schooling is served by the Chestnut Nursery School and Bishop William Ward Primary School. Both St Helena and the Gilberd schools also cater for secondary education together with the top grammar schools of Colchester High (girls) and The Royal Grammar school (boys). Further highly regarded schools include St Mary's, St Benedict's and Oxford House. There is also easy access to the private preparatory schools of Holmwood House and Littlegarth. The town centre offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars, cinema and the Mercury Theatre, as well as the impressive Norman Colchester Castle set in Castle Park. The East Coast and West Mersea (about 9 miles) are easily accessible for sailing and water sports.
