A one-of-kind development opportunity. Nestling in the Colchester countryside, a unique site that offers a chance to refurbish/develop not one, but four houses. There's around four acres in total occupying a serene riverside setting behind a former water mill with easy access, located discreetly away from Colchester Road. This site has the benefit of planning consent. The photos shown are a mixture of the site currently and CGI's of the proposed scheme.

There are four plots in total.

Mill House.
This property is attached to the main water will which has already been converted and is occupied. It's a grade two listed building with impressive width.
It's in reasonable order but clearly would benefit from a complete internal refurbishment. You could choose to keep as one complete home or subject to consent, split them in the middle and create two smaller dwellings. Interestingly, the garden attached to this house is to the rear of the property and accessed by the sluice gates that are still used to regulate the flow of the River Colne that the site sits beside.

Coach House
A unique, characterful building in its own right and another one that requires a complete refurbishment both inside and out. Its comes with a couple of attached garages located at one end of the building and a garden to the right as you exit the building. As with the mill house, the garden sits along side a tranquil stretch of river.

Plots 2 & 4.
Behind the Period properties, a large open site which formerly houses a steam coal plant has planning for two brand new, detached, highly contemporary homes.

There is provision for both residential and visitor parking.

The Location
Wakes Colne is beautiful country village that sits next to the village of Chapple. It shares a mainline station with services services to London Liverpool Street (with a change at Marks Tey). It's an ideal setting for those looking for the next step in rural life but still within a commute from London. The Drive from here to Colchester is around 20 mins and approx 10 miles.
