Paul Bridgeman/Richard Jones

This detached bungalow is situated in a rural position just outside the village of Earls Colne and offers views over the surrounding idyllic Essex countryside of the Colne Valley with its many small villages including Wakes Colne and Chappel. The property is situated approximately five miles from Marks Tey mainline railway station to London (Liverpool Street). However, Chappel and Wakes Colne railway station offers a branch line service connecting to Marks Tey and is located approximately
two and a half miles away.

The bungalow has replacement double glazed windows and an oil-fired heating system via radiators. In addition to the bungalow there is an agricultural barn and piggery which may offer potential for development, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, Colchester Borough Council. Tel: 01206 282424. Website: colchester.gov.uk.
