    About this property

    • A four bedroom detached house believed to have been built in the 1930s and now in need of complete modernisation or redevelopment.

      Its plot of approaching three acres, on the edge of Tillingham village, with open farmland adjoining its eastern boundary, the property includes a collection of run-down outbuildings and an Essex barn. The carriage driveway runs almost half the width of the plot and provides access to the house, outbuildings and grounds, which include some light, mainly deciduous woodland and a large pond to the east, more formal gardens to the south and a field (currently left to scrub) beyond the outbuildings on the northern side.

      No planning enquiries have been made as to the future potential of the property and buyers are asked to make their own enquiries.

      The property has been investigated for structural issues to the rear section of the building. A full structural report is available upon request. We understand the structural issues would make the property unmortgageable. Possible development/specialist finance could be an option. Further advice can be provided on the options available.

      Mains water and electricity, private drainage. Please note under current legislation the private drainage system will need replacing with a compliant treatment plant and it will be the responsibility of the incoming purchaser to install this.
