5 Bedroom Detached House Sold
Fairview is an imposing 1920’s home found in a superb location and with a fabulous outlook over its own paddock land.
Over recent years our clients have renovated and reconfigured most of the house. This includes the creation of an excellent open-plan kitchen/dining/reception area at the centre of the ground floor which draws light from two directions and has bi-fold doors to the outside decking; fittings to note include quartz surfaces, an induction hob, two electric ovens and a log burner in the lounge area.
A playroom and a study lead directly from the dining area whilst further ground floor accommodation includes a formal sitting room with a box bay window, a pantry, a utility room, a WC and a boot room.
The reconfiguration also created a fantastic master bedroom suite which has views over the front and rear, a walk-in dressing room, fitted cupboards and shelves and a stylish en-suite shower room. In the morning when you wake up it is possible to see the horses in the stables through the Juliette balcony. The guest bedroom also has its own en-suite whilst the three additional bedrooms share the use of a family bathroom with a traditional roll-top bath.
Those bedrooms that face the rear enjoy distant views of the River Stour and beyond to the Shotley Peninsular in Suffolk.
THE GARDEN & OUTBUILDINGS
The property has a good frontage being set back from Heath Road by around 100-foot. An in-and-out drive (with Alexa and remote controlled electric gates at each entrance) leads to a substantial parking area and a large single garage which has a workshop attached.
The rear garden is around 80-foot deep, is mostly lawned and is interspersed with a number of trees towards its rear boundary. A large raised-deck deck runs along most of the rear of the house; this is totally private making it ideal for summer entertaining. There is also a garden shed.
Since 2018 our clients have invested significantly to make Fairview into a first-rate equestrian home.
Around six acres of well-drained land is separated by permanent-post electric fencing into five separate paddocks, all of which have automatic water; a large field shelter serves two of the paddocks.
There is good (gated) access for trailers and lorries via the side of the house which leads to an area of hardstanding and an electric hook-up point.
An impressive stable block was built in 2019 and includes three full size stables and one foaling box (with lights, automatic waterers, talking grills and rear windows), a fully fitted and secure tack room with a washing machine, a feed room, a hay barn and a wash bay with a gas fired hot water shower. The building has been fitted with external downlighters, with switch from back door to make it easy to use in the winter months.
An international size arena (60 x 20 meters) was professionally installed in 2018 and is designed for long arena dressage and for a course of jumps. It has a silica sand base and a Flexiride surface and training mirrors at one end.
Fairview is located on a quiet road in Mistley Heath, around a half a mile from Mistley village centre. The village is known for its river walks along the south bank of the River Stour, The Mistley Thorn Restaurant, and its café and art gallery.
The Riverside town of Manningtree is approximately a mile and a half from the property where all necessary day-to-day services can be found including a Tesco Express, a large Co-op supermarket, several pubs and restaurants and a Doctor’s surgery.
Both Mistley and Manningtree have train stations with the latter providing a direct service to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of 60-minutes.
Wix Equestrian Centre is 4 miles from Fairview, hacking to Bradfield beach from Fairview makes a very enjoyable hack and additionally there is a paid for farmland ride of 5 miles in Wrabness, for off road enjoyment.
For walkers the Essex way is 200 meters from Fairview’s boundary, leading to Bradfield, Wrabness and Harwich. Mistley Rugby Club with its new Club house is located in the Mistley direction of the Essex Way for rugby fans.
