What We Say At The Zoe Napier Group:

Understated from its initial appearance, this property just grows in its flexibility for required space; from those with workshop, storage, and outdoor hobbies,

to those wanting the leisurely lifestyle from enjoying an outdoor swimming pool and potential for additional annexe space. The property ticks a lot of boxes, especially as it is walking distance from the Colne Valley Countryside, Church, Pub and Village School!

What The Owners Say:

I have enjoyed every minute of my 25 years here – using every space possible to fulfil my hobbies and larger hobby of flying light aircraft locally at Anglian Flight Centre, Earls Colne. There are even two local golf courses and of course, the Five Bell’s Pub – a brilliant local and eatery. Myself & my partner will not be moving far - it is now regrettably just time for us.

History & Background:

The property offers an attractive double gabled chalet style frontage, set well back on its 0.25-acre plot with extensive parking, garaging and general space. From the rear elevation, the true size of the property can be experienced with private, high hedge boundaries forming a wonderful private south facing sun trap garden featuring an outdoor heated swimming pool and extensive BBQ terrace.

The upstairs of the property was extended around 20 years ago and has been further improved with a quality kitchen and modern bathrooms. The extension essentially created a large junior hotel style suite on the first floor with space for a super king-size bed, dressing/nursery room and a spacious en-suite. There are up to five ground and first floor bedrooms offering good flexibility for additional home office spaces or for a ground floor annexe. There is the additional advantage of an attached double width garage. This alone could become additional ancillary/leisure accommodation, subject to local authority approval.

In addition, a double length part open cart lodge is located on the east elevation for those requiring workshop/hobby space. This property is never ending in its versatility for living and leisure requirements.

Setting & Location:

Colne Engaine is a highly sought after and pretty village in the Colne Valley with the most beautiful, scenic surrounding countryside for leisurely walks and exploring with the family. The village has an historic centre with church and an original red telephone box! now as a book exchange/library, a super pub; “The Five Bells” which has raised decking from which to enjoy the sunsets and with a great reputation for good food and community spirit. There is also the local

village primary school, village hall and local shop/post office; all of which come together for annual village events. It would be fair to say that Colne Engaine holds a special ‘candle’ when it comes to community spirit. Within both walking distance and a short drive is the village of Earls Colne. Here, there is the Colne Valley Golf Course, The Essex Leisure & Golf Club, Flying Club/School, Tennis Courts, a traditional local butcher, doctor’s surgery and more. There are many surrounding scenic villages, each offering their own individual charms, village pubs and restaurants; all set within the Colne Valley – a generally picturesque area on the Essex/Suffolk border, whilst still within daily commute for London.

The property itself, is located on Brook Street, which soon turns into a rural country lane onto Buntings Green and the open countryside, beyond which, is Halstead market town.
