4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
River House is a beautifully positioned Georgian home located next to Colne Priory on the edge of the village of Earls Colne.
The property is one of the Colne Valley’s most notable homes and it sits inside two acres of breath-taking grounds that include a wall lined driveway, around 160 meters of frontage to the river Colne, a large pond and dozens of ancient trees. The grounds are a haven for wildlife including deer and a variety of birds.
The accommodation incorporates sympathetic or original period features such as sash windows, grand fireplaces, wall panelling, oak doors, iron radiators, cornicing, two bay windows, recessed shelving, dwarf cupboards, feature fireplaces on the first floor and exposed wood floors.
Our clients have invested significantly into improving the layout and modernising the building in recent years. This includes the redecoration of all rooms including new window dressings, a reconfiguration of the first floor to create an impressive master suite, an orangery extension off the kitchen, a total bespoke re-fit of the family bathroom, a newly appointed utility room and the addition of a wrought iron balcony that allows some impressive views of the gardens and river.
Other improvements that are less obvious to the eye include the roof being renovated and the electrics being upgraded (with new switches fitted); the timber frame has been treated and most of the sash windows have been reconditioned.
A 780 square foot detached bungalow annex sits adjacent to the house. This has also undergone significant renovation in recent years which includes a new roof, a reconfiguration of the room layout, a total redecoration, a new kitchen, a new bathroom and the additional of bi-fold doors to the rear garden. The bungalow is ideal as a granny annex or could be used as a large office, or for Airbnb.
River House is found on the outskirts of the village of Earls Colne, a substantial, active and well-served village in north Essex. As such the house is within walking distance of a village supermarket, several pubs and restaurants, a primary school. The Essex Golf Club & Country Club and The Colne Valley Golf Course are both just a short drive from the house.
For commuters, Marks Tey and Kelvedon train stations are both within easy driving distance where services run the heart of the City of London. Colchester is around ten minutes away by car or bus with all necessary services plus some excellent schools.
