The Leas, Frinton-on-Sea


**Guide Price £35,000** Jukes Estate Agents are delighted to bring to market this fabulous FRONT ROW beach hut in the highly popular 'The Leas' Frinton-on-Sea, Essex.
This delightful quintessential beach hut is one of the few original huts left! Situated on the front row with glorious uninterrupted beach & sea views this charming piece of British seaside history is now available for a new lucky family to take over the ownership and start creating the wonderful family memories it has made for the current owner & her family ( see the link for a video of the view).
Running parallel to the beach and behind the hut is the Greensward, a broad grassy area perfect for picnics, sports, and leisurely strolls. This open space offers panoramic views of the sea and is a favorite spot for both locals and visitors (see the images & video link).
The beach here is simply superb and with all the recent news about our shores being blighted with raw sewage, we are delighted to inform you that the sea, beach & shoreline are sewage free!!
There is easy access from the FREE car park ( for disabled / wheelchair users there is a ramp), you can also drive right up to the hut for dropping off / pick up & unloading.
It is a 10 min walk to Walton on the Naze & it's wonderful pier and Frinton High St is approx. a 20 min walk where you will find plenty of interesting shops & eateries.
It is hard to imagine that this superb hut could be located in a better position even if you owned a magic wand. It epitomises everything there is about a day at the seaside. With summers getting warmer and winters getting milder, each year will see the number of days you will want to use this beach hut increase, & let's be honest, even on a chillier day you can shut the front door, put the heater on and sit inside your warm snug hut and lose yourself staring out into the North Sea. It's a 'win-win' situation as far as we can see!
The property itself is in superb condition.
All the supports under the hut were replace just 3 years ago and it has recently had a new roof, stairs, & platform. The main inside space has a double gas ring & hob for making hot food or boiling a kettle for a cuppa etc with work surfaces & there is bench seating either side with plenty of room for the entire family. The is a large amount of storage under the bench seating.
The outer area has enough room to sit and we can see that especially on warmer days this would be most useful. There is also space for storing deckchairs, bodyboards & surfboards as well.
A freshwater tap is just 5 huts along so no need to take heavy water containers with you.
For dog owners, there are parts of the beaches that are dog friendly.
unlike caravans etc. these huts increase in value and in recent years as holidaying in the UK as become increasingly popular, the price of the British seaside day hut has become increasingly popular & therefore that has reflected in the price.
The current owner tella us that there is a Frinton Beach hut member club which costs just £10 a year to be a member & amonst other benefits someone patrols the huts everyweek to make sure all is ok & will call the owner if something is wrong. This is a superb service that we would highly recommend the new owners joined.
There is an annual license fee to pay of £764 to Tendeing council, although we are told that if you are a resident of Tendring, there is a 50% discount on that fee!
There is also an ownership transfer fee of £500 that would have to be paid by the new owners.
So for those of you who do not really know Frinton on Sea, what is it like?
Nestled on the eastern coast of England, Frinton-on-Sea is a quintessential British seaside town in Essex. Known for its unspoiled beaches, serene atmosphere, and rich history, Frinton-on-Sea offers a delightful escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. This charming town is not just a retreat for holidaymakers but also a place steeped in tradition and community spirit.

Frinton-on-Sea's history dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086, where it was mentioned as "Frientuna." Initially a small village with a largely agrarian economy, the town transformed significantly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The development of the railways and the vision of influential figures like Richard Powell Cooper, a key developer in the early 1900s, helped shape Frinton into the elegant seaside resort it is today. Cooper's vision included wide, tree-lined avenues and an exclusive feel, which still characterizes the town.

Beaches and Seafront
The highlight of Frinton-on-Sea is undoubtedly its pristine beach. The sandy shores stretch for miles, offering visitors a perfect spot for sunbathing, swimming, or simply enjoying a leisurely walk. Unlike many other seaside towns, Frinton's beach remains uncommercialized, providing a tranquil environment free from the usual seaside arcades and amusement parks. The beach is also known for its colorful beach huts, which add a picturesque touch to the landscape.

The Greensward and Promenade
Running parallel to the beach is the Greensward, a broad grassy area perfect for picnics, sports, and leisurely strolls. This open space offers panoramic views of the sea and is a favorite spot for both locals and visitors. The promenade, lined with well-maintained gardens and benches, invites people to relax and soak in the coastal ambiance.

The Town Centre
Frinton's town center reflects its genteel character, with a range of independent shops, boutiques, and cafes. Connaught Avenue, often referred to as the "Bond Street of East Anglia," is the main shopping street, featuring a mix of high-end stores and quaint local businesses. The town has a strict policy against allowing fast food chains and pubs, which helps maintain its exclusive and serene atmosphere.

Community and Culture
Frinton-on-Sea has a vibrant community spirit, with numerous local events and activities throughout the year. The Frinton Summer Theatre, established in 1937, is one of the oldest repertory theaters in the UK and continues to draw audiences with its high-quality productions. Additionally, the town hosts various community events, including the annual Frinton Literary Festival, which celebrates local and national literary talent.

Natural Beauty and Wildlife
Beyond its beaches, Frinton is surrounded by natural beauty. The Hamford Water National Nature Reserve, located nearby, is a haven for bird watchers and nature enthusiasts. This protected area is home to a variety of bird species and other wildlife, offering excellent opportunities for bird watching, walking, and photography.

Frinton-on-Sea stands out as a unique and charming destination on the Essex coast. Its combination of natural beauty, historical significance, and a strong sense of community makes it a perfect place for those seeking a peaceful and enriching coastal experience. Whether you are looking to relax on its serene beaches, explore its rich history, or enjoy the local culture, Frinton-on-Sea promises an unforgettable visit.
So, what do we have?
This cracking beach hut is a part of British seaside history. It is up there with sand castles, candy floss, 'kiss me quick' hats, a plate of cockles, donkey rides and that glorious salty smell.

About us

A chance meeting some time ago between Lee Venables & Geoff Flewers saw their conversation turn to estate

agents and how bad an experience they had both had when selling their own properties.

Wind forward 18 months and they were both running Town and Country Herts & Essex Estate Agents. They

became more convinced than ever that the dubious, archaic & darn right bad practices of far too many estate

agents were simply not going to
