Colchester, the old oldest recorded town in England, offers a wide range of recreational shopping and educational facilities, including two grammar schools, making the area very popular for families.
Further independent, educational facilities can be found at the co-educational preparatory schools of Holmwood House and Littlegarth. Other educational facilities nearby include St Mary's Senior School for Girls and, as previously mentioned, Colchester Royal Grammar School and Colchester County High School for Girls.
There is a David Lloyd health club in Colchester and two fantastic golf clubs nearby, namely Colchester Golf Club and Lexden Golf Club.
An attractive late Victorian detached villa situated in the heart of Lexden. The property was converted into three self-contained apartments in the early 1970s and has been a significant residential investment remaining continuously let over a sustained period of time. The existing property comprises a three bedroom apartment on the ground floor, and two x two-bedroom apartments to the second and third floors. The apartments provide generous levels of accommodation with high ceilings and tall sash windows to some of the principal rooms. In June 2022 the property achieved a Lawful Development Certificate Change of use from dwelling house (Class C3) to a small house in multiple occupation (HMO), (Class C4) for the ground floor apartment. Despite its current configuration and permissions, the property has the option to be converted back into a single dwelling.
In addition, a two storey coach house is located to the eastern boundary comprising three rooms which we believe has the potential to be converted into supplementary accommodation, subsidiary to the main house, subject to necessary planning consents.
The property occupies a largely rectangular shaped plot. Parking is to the front with a courtyard garden to the rear leading to a detached former coach house. A service road runs to the rear of the property. All in around 0.196 of an acre.
Mains services connected. Each apartment has its own gas meter located outside the property. Each apartment has its own electric meter located inside the property.
