An impressive 19th century country house and coach house set in 4 acres of grounds near the east coast.
Reddings is set in a lovely stretch of open countryside on the Dengie peninsula between the villages of Tillingham and Southminster. Tillingham provides a range of good basic local amenities and the larger village of Southminster possesses a number of local shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery and a station on the branch line into Liverpool Street. Southminster also has its own primary school and the local secondary school (Ormiston Rivers Academy) is only around two miles away in the town of Burnham on Crouch. Burnham (6 miles) and the larger town of Maldon (13 miles) both have a wider range of shops and other facilities and are meccas for sailing enthusiasts, while the city of Chelmsford is home to two outstanding grammar schools, a number of renowned private schools and a bustling shopping centre.
Reddings is believed to have been built during the 19th century and is constructed of brick under a pitched slate roof. The house, grounds and outbuildings have been the subject of a number of improvements over recent years and these have contributed to the creation of an impressive property with extensive and versatile accommodation and a wide range of other facilities.
The house has excellent proportions, is light and airy and flows well. The majority of the rooms have sash windows, many of which have secondary glazing. In the dining room and drawing room, the windows extend almost to the floor and can be used to gain access to the outside. An entrance lobby leads through into a large reception hall with access to the three principal reception rooms and a stunning staircase sweeping up to the six bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en suite) on the first floor. An inner hall provides access through to the east wing and on to a study, kitchen/ breakfast room and a boiler/laundry room and w.c.
A courtyard adjacent to the kitchen includes a former brick and slate two-storey coach house, which has been converted to include a cinema room with store room above, a kitchen, cloakroom and gym. A pool house designed to resemble an orangery houses the indoor swimming pool which has a mosaic tiled finish and an electronically operated insulated safety cover. The building includes a changing room/shower room with quarry tiled floor and shower cubicle. A vegetable garden, surrounded by a low privet hedge, has been constructed to the side of and in the shelter of the pool house.
The house is approached through automatic electric gates over a tarmac and shingled driveway that curves between the lawns on either side to a parking area by the front door. The property also has the benefit of garaging to the side of the house which includes an oil tank and storage area.
The grounds are mostly laid to lawns, with rose beds and shrub borders, and are principally situated to the south, west and east of the house. A large paved terrace, edged by low red brick walls and rose beds, extends along much of the east side of the house and has a flight of steps leading down to rolling lawns extending back to the road and bounded by a row of evergreen trees, including holm oak and holly.
Further lawns extend away to the east and west and are interspersed with flowerbeds, rhododendrons and other shrubs and a number of trees including Japanese cherry, apple and pear. The high evergreen hedges planted along much of the northern boundary shelter the property from the road and beyond them there is a grassed area which, once fenced, could be used as a pony paddock and a greenhouse with power and light.
Mains water, electricity. Private drainage. Oil fired heating.
