PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: Approached via a private driveway, discretely nestled within the much sought-after North Essex village of West Bergholt. An imposing, jettied Grade II* listed timber framed residence of exceptional standing, offering an accommodation schedule of approximately 5,575 sq ft enjoying an idyllic south-facing front aspect across established gardens, meadowland and across the River Colne. Combining some particularly fine period features including a wealth of chamfered timbers and studwork, inglenook fireplaces, nine-foot ceiling heights and beautifully proportioned reception space throughout. Offering a setting on the edge of the Colne Valley that is largely unrivalled within the locality, the property is arranged via five ground-floor reception rooms and has been further enhanced by a contemporary extension in the form of a vaulted, brick-built AGA kitchen/breakfast room with granite preparation surfaces, double-glazed oak windows and afforded a triple aspect with French windows to both front and rear elevations. Maintained to an excellent standard over a number of years this grand country home is further enhanced by a triple garage, ample private parking area, versatile outbuilding currently utilised as a substantial external store and ornate, well-screened gardens with a total plot size of approximately 1.5 acres.

SITUATION: Horsepits Farm enjoys an outstanding rural setting within the Colne Valley, enjoying far reaching views across meadow land, and farmland and with the eight-acre grounds abutting the banks of the River Colne. Tucked away in a rural location, approached via a long private driveway, off Cook's Hall Road but conveniently located for the many amenities of West Bergholt including Heathlands Primary School, East of England Co-op, GPs surgery and The Queens Head Public House. Ideally placed for commuting with the A12 trunk road three miles distant, Colchester North Station three miles and Stanstead approximately 45-minute drive.
