History and Background

A rare and exciting lifestyle opportunity to acquire Orchard Farm and its adjacent detached and converted two bedroom ancillary barn where there is a current rural/cottage industry business opportunity which could be passed on (by goodwill only) to the incoming buyer, strictly on a discretionary basis.
However the premises offer much potential for alternative private uses, whilst offering equestrian potential, together with other permissible home business or possible B & B uses (stp).

The existing semi-detached cottage dates back in part to circa 1900, offering cosy and characterful features combined with modern and stylish living which provides three good sized first floor bedrooms and a modern shower room with an additional ground floor bathroom, quality Wren kitchen and service areas.

The ancillary barn has long established use, is separately rated and offers two receptions, a kitchen and shower room with spiral staircase to two double sized bedrooms.

Setting & Location

The property has extensive road frontage, both along Straight Road and Horkesley Road where the main entrance to the house provides extensive parking with a gravelled spur leading up to additional parking for the Annexe Barn. For the Alpaca experience, customer parking is access through the close boarded gates part way up Horkesley Road.

Boxted is a highly desirable semi-rural village which lies approximately 4.5 miles to the north of Colchester and just 2.8 miles from Colchester (North) mainline station (approximately 50 minutes for London Liverpool Street).

The area was originally mostly agricultural with its numerous smallholdings, cooperative production of produce and arable surrounds. Today, the area is mostly equestrian orientated with various small cottage industry businesses dotted along Straight Road which includes the Alpaca Farm which attracts many visitors on their open days.
