What We Say at The Zoe Napier Group
An ideal home for anyone seeking an outdoors lifestyle and/or grazing land for horses or other animals. The property boasts a convenient location to Earls Colne and enjoys the most amazing, far reaching views over the Colne Valley. With some modernisation, and if desired, extension, there is a wonderful opportunity to create a spectacular ‘home for life’.
What our Owners Say
We have lived here for fifty years and consider ourselves fortunate to have enjoyed the wide ranging benefits of both living and working from this wonderful home. Raising our children in such an idyllic rural setting has been immensely rewarding, and as a result we will take with us wonderful family memories.
History & Background
Set on a plot of 2.4 acres(stls), and originally built in the early seventies, this delightful farmhouse has served its current owners for fifty years and enjoys the most spectacular countryside and farmland views. Consisting of four bedrooms, one reception room, a kitchen /breakfast room, study or play room and utility/boot room, the property offers a unique opportunity to modernise and extend to fully realise the potential and value that this most magnificent rural setting offers. 
This home could ideally suit an entry level equestrian buyer, but also anyone wanting to nurture livestock on the expansive grazing land. What is for certain is that the new owner of this property will enjoy the most fantastic rural and outdoors lifestyle. The proximity to both Marks Tey and Kelvedon railway stations provide the bonus of convenient London commuting access to this rurally situated home.
Setting & Location
The popular nearby village of Earls Colne nestles in the Colne Valley and is named after the Earls of Oxford and the River Colne, which flows through the valley below. Visitors to Earls Colne and neighbouring Wakes Colne can visit the Heritage Museum, East Anglian Railway Museum, and use the many footpaths to enjoy the surrounding countryside and nearby Chalkney Wood.
Earls Colne offers two golf clubs with associated leisure facilities, an airstrip, several pubs and restaurants, and a good selection of shops. At nearby Chappel, there is also the popular scenic railway route known as the Gainsborough Line that runs from Sudbury in Suffolk to Marks Tey in Essex and traverses the most spectacular railway viaduct.
Located in an enviable position, the farmhouse enjoys a beautiful rural setting and is just a few minutes car journey to the attractive village of Earls Colne. The property itself sits on an enclosed circa 0.4 acres (stls) established garden plot and enjoys an adjoining circa two acres (stls) of grazing/paddock land.
The farmhouse delivers a wonderful rural environment and the neighbouring farmland beyond offers the most brilliant far reaching, unspoilt countryside views.
The property is located for convenient access to the popular market town of Halstead and the large town of Colchester which provides a wide range of amenities and some of the best state schools in East Anglia including The Gilberd School, Colchester Royal Grammar School and Colchester County High School for Girls. The Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery has a good Ofsted rating.
