A substantial three storey dwelling of approximately 2,260sq ft found in a quarter of an acre plot overlooking farmland to the rear on the Eastern edge of Colchester town.

Located to the East of Colchester on the outskirts of Crockleford Heath, this substantial detached dwelling is ideally placed on the outskirts of Colchester Town just two miles from the High Street and North Station whilst being two and a half miles from the A12 and A120.

Originally two cottages Briar Cottage was redeveloped some time ago providing a substantial single dwelling that includes (accessed off the frist floor) a useful attic room spanning the entire width of the property with dormer windows to the rear and an elevated view of the local countryside.

Other stand out features of this characterful home include 135' road frontage, a balcony from the Master Bedroom (with views) and a 2m half-landing window designed to frame the outlook behind.

Downstairs you will find a modern Kitchen with block paved flooring leading to a Utility and Shower Room. There are two further reception rooms and a reception hall which are all dual aspect from front to back. We also feel that there is great potential to create a really stunning and open plan Kitchen / Diner should the Kitchen be opened up into the Reception Hall. Leading off the Dining Room on the Eastern wing of the house is an L-shaped conservatory of Brick base construction with wood framed windows which is a lovely addition to the ground floor space yet could do with a little love.


The layout of the First Floor works extremely well. As you wander up the stairs you're drawn outside through the tall half-landing windows and then you are greeted with a spacious and light landing which has stairs to the attic room and leads off to all the other bedrooms and first floor bathroom.

The Master Suite is triple aspect with a private balcony found at the rear to take in that wonderful view. Adjacent to the Master bedroom is a dressing room which could quite easily become and Ensuite as the Shower Room on the ground floor is directly beneath and has the services laid on to make this work.

The remainder of the bedrooms on this floor are all of a good size and the bathroom itself is spacious and retains the character of the original cottages.


Outside the garden wraps around the house to the rear and to the side. To the West is a mature and private garden with raised lawn - a perfect place to sit to capture the late afternoon to early evening sun. To the Eastern edge of the plot is a block paved drive that widens to the rear providing plenty of off-street parking. This drive leads to square garage with a roof lantern and double door to the front.

Being carved into undulating countryside results in the plot having different levels in different areas adding to its quirkiness. At the front you will find stepped walled gardens perfect for adding colour through blooming plants and shrubs. At the back the garden slopes up to the rear boundary which straddles the farmland by approximately 143 feet.


It is our opinion that this is a really interesting family home and the house has potential to have real value added to it over a long-term tenure. The accommodation is light and substantial and whilst the layout may well be ideal for your immediate needs as it is, the house lends itself on the ground floor for alterations in design to change as your needs do.
