What We Say at the Zoe Napier Group This is a superb property that will upgrade your lifestyle - Modern architecture is often linked to nature and wellbeing, featuring full height glass windows, open plan living and extensive balcony spaces from which to live the life to the full and enjoy the panoramic 'living painting' of the waterside. An exquisite home, rarely available, of this standard and setting.
What the Owners Say Our family have owner/occupied this plot for over 30 Years. In 2015 we embarked on the construction of this exciting new build to design and create our dream home. 2020 has been a year to appreciate really, fully what we have; swimming in the river, appreciating nature, the scenic rural landscapes and great access for coastal path walking. However today is the time to downsize and start our travel across the UK & Europe
History & Background An Inspirational example of Modern Waterside Architecture overlooking the River Crouch with Pontoon Mooring rights. The property, with 4300 sq ft of luxurious accommodation sits on a beautifully landscaped plot of 0.48 of an acre with immediate access and riparian rights onto the River Crouch - a stunning stretch of estuary on the East Coast, largely surrounded by open countryside. The property is offered with planning for a pontoon mooring and there are opportunities to join local sailing clubs and marinas.
The house was completed in 2016 with the remaining term of a 10-year Build Warranty. Its luxurious specification and great engineering, combined with high efficiency materials, earned the property an A in Energy Rating with inexpensive running costs. Air Source pump underfloor heating and solar panelled energy (owned outright) supports the extensive triple and double-glazed panels from which to enjoy stunning, panoramic vistas.
The interior is over three floors with superb balconies for entertaining, internal glass galleries, vaulted ceilings, and great expanses of family living space where bi-fold doors envelop the sea breeze and the never tiring, changing waterside views. Every attention has been paid to detail in the design, including options for a ground floor annexe or alternative party/summer room onto the south facing coastal seascape gardens. There are up to six bedrooms including an optional annexe on the ground floor.
Setting & Location The property is situated along a private no through road, towards the end of the lane amongst well-kept neighbouring waterside properties. The lane also accommodates a high-end retirement park, and the village is a sought after, thriving community with all required local amenities within walking distance. These include a doctor's surgery, dentist, post office, local supermarkets and a fantastic range of schools. Rayleigh & Hockley station are just under 5 miles by car for those travelling by train to and from London.
This wonderful, highly appointed, landmark home is situated on 0.48 of an acre. The South side contains extensively landscaped, low maintenance grounds with extensive parking, a detached summerhouse/office and covered seating areas (beneath the extensive balcony). Equally there are covered outdoor seating areas onto the River Frontage with Gardens tiered by a Gabion wall and with steps up to the gated sea wall - a public walkway along the East Coast path. The grounds continue with riparian rights into the river, where extensive river frontage allows for private tidal moorings.
