A unique opportunity to acquire an impressive countryside family home. This detached five bedroom house, surrounded by its 1.5 acre plot (subject to land survey), features two bathrooms, en-suite bathroom, three reception rooms and a comfortable custom fitted farmhouse style kitchen-family room. With far-reaching estuary views and walking access to Tollesbury Marina, the property is within easy reach of all local facilities, including a school and village centre. Outside, a defined paddock area with two loose boxes and outbuildings make this property an ideal choice for those with equestrian interests or enthusiasm for general outdoor life.
' A word from the owner'
After a lot of house-hunting, we found our sanctuary, 'Lanes End', (over 16 years ago), when we were looking for a home in an escapist rural location that would be able to accommodate and adjust to the demands of a young, active family whilst being within reasonable distance of good primary and secondary schools and allowing for daily work commutes to London. Lanes End has been all this and so much more. At one point, we kept three horses in the garden and with the ample parking space available, the children's friends also came over with their trailers and ponies to spend happy days riding out through the village and the bridleways. Our various dogs have also enjoyed miles and miles of fresh sea air walks along the sea wall and woodland footpaths. All of us, plus visiting friends, have made the most of swimming in the local salt pool, the creek and the swimming pool at Tollesbury Marina (three minutes walk from the house); sailing out with Tollesbury Sailing Club; and sitting on the back garden patio, looking over our garden, the salt marsh and the boats on the Blackwater beyond that. Truly idyllic, peaceful surroundings for the children to grow up in and a wonderful counterfoil to the weekly working life in London. We are sad to move on, but we consider ourselves lucky to have lived here.
