Property description



A substantial 4 bed family home with a self-contained annexe containing a 5th bedroom, set in a delightful country location, with splendid views of the surrounding fields and woods. Located in the village of Fingringhoe, on a quiet road, but only 500 metres from the main road and bus stop, giving access to Colchester, which is 3 miles away. The current owners have tastefully developed the property and its grounds by adding a large double oak cartlodge and storage and developing an existing outbuilding into a self-contained annexe. Internally they have undertaken some modernisation work. The property has planning permission for a first floor extension and external remodelling. Once complete, this will elevate the property to a new level, providing a truly magnificent country residence or could be suitable for Bed and Breakfast business. The original planning permission was for all works, so there is no time constraint for the final project.
