    About this property

    • A rare opportunity to acquire a beautifully presented Georgian home with a successful holiday let business, occupying a convenient village setting in the heart of north Essex.

      Newcombes was constructed in the late 1700s and has an elegant façade with a shallow slate pitched roof providing five first-floor bedrooms and generous reception space. The property totals approx 3,980 and has been tastefully decorated in neutral tones throughout.

      Positioned away from the house is a separate building comprising extensive garage/workshop facilities and three one-bedroom, self-contained holiday lets. An adjacent block provides two further one-bedroom holiday lets. This was previously a successful business and offers the potential to be re-instated taking advantage of the nearby wedding venues of The White Hart, Hedingham Castle, Gosfield Hall and Sturmer Hall. The rooms have been fully equipped and full details relating to the likely return are available on request.

      The property is entered from the front into a welcoming reception hall with part-galleried landing and coat cupboard. From here, doors open to a dining room with an exposed fireplace, a study and a sitting room with a bar section. The kitchen/breakfast room provides ample storage and a variety of appliances. Flowing from the kitchen/breakfast room, a doorway opens to a utility room, a practical boot room, a cloakroom and a store room leading to the cellar. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is a spacious orangery with bi-folding doors opening to the garden and courtyard.

      Moving to the first level, a landing leads to a principal bedroom, opening to a spacious balcony offering views over the garden. A spiral staircase leads to the garden below. The room has an adjoining dressing room and a shower room. Additionally, the first floor accommodates four more generously-sized bedrooms, two of which feature en suite bathrooms, with an additional family bathroom.

      Outside
      At the front, the property is enclosed by a low brick wall, with a front garden incorporating a selection of trees providing a natural boundary from the road. A sweeping driveway leads to the front of the house where there is designated parking for both the house and holiday lets. Electric gates are situated on the side of the property and provide access to the garages, courtyard and additional outbuildings.

      The gardens predominantly extend to the west providing an expanse of lawn, a small area of woodland and a lake which attracts a variety of wildlife.

      All in around 4.77 acres.

      Services: The property is connected to mains water, drainage, electricity and oil fired heating.

      Agent's Notes
      (1) Appropriate footwear is necessary and care should be taken as some of the land is uneven.

      (2) * Studios 4 and 5 (the smallest and newest) require retrospective planning permission. Studios 1, 2 and 3 have planning permission, but studios 4 and 5 were a later addition, but there is no reason to doubt that they would be given permission.

      (3) The decking around the boathouse is rotten in places. Care must be taken when walking across and agents and viewers might prefer to look inside the boathouse from a viewpoint on the grass.
