Strood House is a magnificent Grade II Listed residence that is situated in a sublime position overlooking the Black Water Estuary. Characterful features are found throughout the residence and with an abundance of space around the property, Strood House has enormous versatility with an annexe already being present within the grounds. 

THE PROPERTY
This charming Grade II listed residence is located in an idyllic setting with far reaching views over the Blackwater Estuary. The grounds that surround the property are full of mature trees and also includes an orchard which is home to a variety of fruit trees. The well proportioned bedrooms and the generously sized reception rooms lend this stunning property to be a home to a growing family.

Upon entering the property from the side elevation you are greeted instantly by the dual aspect family room, the kitchen flows off of this room which creates an area of the home that is perfect for families to congregate and spend the evenings together. To the front of the property, a more formal wing of the residence is found that is partitioned wonderfully by the elegant wooden staircase. This large room is abundant with period features that include wooden floorboards as well as a fireplace. Running the width of the house, this is where the stunning sunsets over the estuary can be observed.

Once the stairs have been ascended, you are greeted by a split direction landing that provides access to four generously proportioned bedrooms where one has a visually stunning Norman Window. A dressing room and family bathroom complete this level of the house. Classical wooden panelling frames a second staircase that leads into an extra room that is known to the current owners as the crow's nest that is currently used as a viewing post to take in the morning sun.

The garden extends to approximately 0.8 acres and is surrounding by established shrubs. A stable block is housed within the grounds, although may need refurbishment it offers a great opportunity to convert (STP). A double garage and driveway complete the outside.
 

THE ANNEXE
The self contained studio annexe offers additional accommodation, ideal for guests to stay. Currently the annexe offers sitting/bedroom with French doors opening on to the gardens, kitchen and shower room.
 

LOCATION
Strood House is located just on the outskirts of Peldon village which enjoys a tight knit community feel thanks to its recent addition of a new village hall which serves a variety of social events that include history talks and leisure activities. The Plough at Peldon, a family run pub, serves as a local meeting point for many in the village and with other eating establishments located in the surrounding area of Tolleshunt Knights, you are never too far away from something to do. The proximity to Mersea Islands offers enjoyable days out as well as an active lifestyle thanks to the prominent sailing facilities that are present. In addition, with the Oyster Bar; known locally for its fantastic fresh seafood dishes, being less than a ten minute drive away, Strood House is evidently positioned in an ideal spot for a range of activities and tastes.
