Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Splitting the Difference Westpoint had been under one ownership for over 60 years and such was the reluctance of the owner to move away from what is a truly superb location, that the property is now to be divided into three separate homes, two of which are already underway thanks to the high-quality development company leading the project. "My grandfather knew the owner and thus it was to our building company, now trading for over 50 years, that the owner turned to in the knowledge that we would do an excellent job of converting the majority of this 9/10-bedroom fabulous property into two high quality semi-detached homes, without taking away from the original charm." The original façade is to be retained and thus, looking from the street view, there is nothing to belie what will become two individual properties: one with its main access from the front and full of many original features, a superb first floor balcony off the master suite, and two further bedrooms over two floors; and the second with a side entrance, more contemporary in style, with three to four bedrooms over two floors. Both are in one of the finest locations imaginable; with uninterrupted views out over the Greensward and the beach in this peaceful spot in one of the prime residential areas of  

Frinton-on-Sea.  

Inherited Wealth Westpoint was built in 1909 by a local coal merchant, reportedly for his mistress, and with its stippled render and part tiled façade, it is redolent of an era when no expense was spared on every detail in the construction. Within its walls, you discover a beautiful oak staircase, gorgeous open fireplaces and the original Chinese panelling. The rooms are beautifully proportioned and the accommodation is laid out over three floors, "You really have to see it to believe it, especially when the sun is out," says the developer who was blown away by its charm and the opportunity to bring all its qualities to life through a carefully thought out design for both properties, "One of the properties will have more of a traditional feel, with the oak staircase and Chinese panelling two of its main features, whilst the second will have a more contemporary feel." The beauty of this project is that there is the opportunity to create a home to suit your taste and requirements, "We are very flexible with the plans and eager to work with the client to develop them in harmony with their lifestyle, from the fixtures and fittings to the overall layout of the sleeping accommodation."  

Spoilt for Choice The property more traditional in style has a fabulous oak front door, which opens into the entrance hall, to its left leading you through double doors into the stunning lounge, and it is here that you discover the Chinese panelling adorning its walls. At its heart stands an open fireplace, behind which is a further living area, with double doors opening out on to what will be a patio running the width of the property. A large window allows you uninterrupted views out over the greensward, and being east facing, the morning sun as it rises above the horizon. "This is a stunning room, filled with light thanks to the large east facing window and double doors that face west, and this really brings out the detail in the original panelling." Further along the entrance hall, there is a toilet, the oak staircase that leads up to the first and second floor sleeping accommodation, and to the left will be a good sized kitchen/diner, designed in line with the client's wishes and benefitting from access into the lounge from two separate entry points. The first-floor master suite will be breath-taking, with views out the sea from its large window, as well as from a balcony constructed from glass reinforced plastic that will also be accessible from the second, equally spacious bedroom, and with a third bedroom on the second floor with superb views, waking up in the morning has never been so appealing. 

Equal in Every Measure The second more contemporary styled property will enjoy the same sea views from both the dining room/lounge living space and the kitchen. The former runs the width of the property and benefits from west facing double doors that will open on to a private patio to be constructed over two levels and an open fireplace. The kitchen is also dual aspect and will be designed in line with the client's choice of materials, layout and overall style ideas. From the lobby, the staircase will take you up to the first and second floor accommodation, with both offering the option for your master suite. "The master suite can be on either floor, as both are excellent contenders. The first floor will have a large suite running the width of the property and incorporating a dressing room and a bathroom, and the entire second floor will be given over to a bedroom, bathroom and an adjoining living space, with its own balcony looking out to sea."  

Location, Location, Location Both properties will have a split-level patio for summer entertaining and beautifully landscaped grounds which, being in a conservation area, have been very carefully planned out to fully sympathise with their surroundings. Several trees - Ash, Oak, Hawthorn and Chestnut- have been retained and a hornbeam hedge has been planted along the front boundary of the property. Both properties will have a garage, and property one also has rather remarkable feature within its boundary, "There is a pergola which we believe was designed by the famous garden designer, Gertrud Jekyll, and this adds tremendous interest to the garden." To find such an opportunity as this is a really exciting prospect for anyone looking for a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, "It is so quiet here, and only a short walk through the tree-lined avenues to the tennis club, the gym, and the heart of the town with its many and varied independent businesses." With a great rail link to Colchester, and therefore scope to commute, either property would provide a fabulous home for a young family, busy professionals or as a place in which to retire and enjoy the wide variety of options for relaxation. But, with just a few steps between you and the beach, stretching down to the sea, this property will make you feel as if every day is a holiday.
