Substantial Grade II Listed former house and coach house, in over an acre.
In 2019/2020 the current owners secured planning permission and listed building consent for and to facilitate change of use from children's day centre (D1) to 3 dwellings (C3) and construction of additional 4 dwellings, including garage, parking spaces and all associated works (Ref. 20/00396/FUL and 19/00213/LBC). The listed consent has now expired. However, Writtle Wick is not only an interesting prospect from the point of view of residential redevelopment but also, given that the local authority have confirmed its current status (as of September 2020) as E(f) Creche, day nursery or day centre, represents a commercial opportunity too. The property may be suitable for alternative uses outside of Use Class E(f) (subject to planning consent).
Access is via a shared tarmac driveway which connects to Chignal Road. There is a tarmac car park located to the rear of the main building which can accommodate several vehicles.
No further planning enquiries have been made as to the future potential of the property and buyers are asked to make their own enquiries as Writtle Wick is being sold on a sold-as-seen basis.
Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage.
We understand that the site is subject to a blanket Tree Preservation Order under reference TPO/2013/011. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with Chelmsford City Council.
Strictly by appointment with Savills.

Writtle Wick is such an exciting opportunity for the right buyer. You don't often find a house and outbuildings with this sort of potential set in an established plot so close to a city centre. There are so many possibilities.Phaedra Howard
