A superb double plot with planning permission for two grand design type properties enjoying panoramic views over the River Stour
The elevated site is located in an outstanding setting in a conservation area between the Manningtree-Harwich railway line (set in a deep cutting) and the River Stour. It comprises a relatively open area of 1.25 acres on the upper wooded slopes overlooking the river frontage. Directly below the site is the Mistley Marine boatyard and each dwelling will have the use of a mooring for a small leisure boat up to 10m for a period of 5 years on a pepper corn rent and there after by arrangement with the boat yard. There are stunning views over the Stour Estuary from the site. Set just outside the village of Mistley on the southern banks of the Stour it has fine views over the water to Suffolk and is surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty part of which has been allocated the status of a S.S.S.I. (Site of Special Scientific Interest). Mistley has a train station in walking distance with connections to the main line. Manningtree station is about 2 miles away and offers main line services directly to London's Liverpool Street Station. Manningtree offers a wide range of educational, shopping and recreational facilities and Harwich also has regular ferry services to the continent. It is about 5 miles from the main A120 which provides a direct link to the dual carriageway networks and easy access to the historic Roman town Colchester which is reputed to be the oldest town in Britain and offers a comprehensive range of facilities.
The proposed development is for the construction of two detached four bedroom contemporary houses facing north across the estuary. The houses would be towards the southern part of the wooded site occupying in the main a clearing to the south of the private driveway. The proposed new houses have been designed to have a minimal impact on both the landscape and the environment with the building designed to be partially set into the hill side.
The total gross internal floor area of the proposed houses is approximately 5,500 sq ft and 5,000 sqft in each case including the integral garaging. The architect involved in the design and granting of the planning permission is KLH architects (01473) 689532.
