About this property

  • The property was the former officers mess for the Shoebury Garrison which dates from 1825 and was further extended in the mid and late 19th century. The property is listed Grade II of Architectural or Historical Interest as part of a collection of buildings forming part of the original horseshoe barracks, built for the British School of Gunnery, which opened in 1856. The area provides for a variety of shopping, educational and recreational facilities, both at Shoeburyness, Thorpe Bay and Southend, and is within easy reach of a mainline railway station with trains into London Fenchurch Street. The house is situated on a lovely stretch of coastline which includes award-winning beaches which provide beautiful coastal walks and cycleways. For the sports enthusiast there are a variety of yachting, tennis and golf clubs nearby.

    The property was converted and re-modelled between 2010 and 2013 to provide a magnificent and versatile home orientated so that the principal rooms enjoy panoramic coastal views. Some of the accommodation requires completion and/or cosmetic finishing.

    An electric metal gated entrance opens into a substantial hardstanding area for parking, which merges into a vast expanse of lawns retained by low box hedging with a series of pathways leading to the rear terraces which sit immediately adjacent to the beach and coast, an ideal area for al-fresco dining.

    Viewing: Strictly by prior appointment with Savills.
