Straight Road, Boxted, Colchester, CO4


4 Bedroom Land Sold STC

Noakes Farm, which is for sale for the first time since 1957, is a super opportunity for a visionary individual or developer to create a cluster of homes in a superb location just two miles from the A12 and four miles from Colchester town centre.

The total plot measures 10.8 acres with all the buildings being positioned close to the centre, away from roads and other neighbours.

Subject to the necessary planning consents we expect the farm could be commercially re-purposed in a number of ways including as an equestrian centre. Buildings include:

A charming 2440 square foot timber-framed, Grade Two Listed farm house with four/five bedrooms and four reception rooms. The kitchen was re-fitted and the roof was re-thatched in 2016.

A detached timber-framed barn which sits to the rear side of the house. This has planning permission for conversion into a three-bedroom, two-bathroom residential dwelling. This could be developed as a separate dwelling or retained with the house as an annex.

The seven substantial former chicken sheds are in disrepair and three of them are asbestos roofed. Sections of these barns have permitted development for conversion to make five separate residential dwellings. The largest three dwellings will measure in the region of 1600-square feet and will include a kitchen/dining room, a separate sitting room, a master bedroom with both an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room, a double sized guest bedroom, a family bathroom, a study, a porch and a utility room.

The two smaller homes will measure around 1070-square feet and will have the same room count as the above properties albeit with smaller proportions.

Boxted is an extremely popular village known for its ease of access to Colchester and Colchester North mainline train station, both of which are around three and a half miles from the farm.
 The Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is found just a mile to the north whilst the characterful villages of Nayland and Dedham are within easy reach by car.

Nearby schools include Holmwood House, Littlegarth, St. Marys and Colchester Royal Grammar School. Boxted has its own primary school which is just a mile away.
