LISTED as the most expensive property on the market in Colchester, this mansion is ten times more expensive than the average price of a house in the borough.

But what exactly can prospective property purchasers expect to get from a home with slapped with an eye-watering £3.5million price tag?

Located in the plush rural village of West Bergholt on Horsepits Farm’s eight acres of land, this striking Grade 2-listed property covers more than 5,550 square-feet.

Within that space the building boasts five reception rooms, including a billiard room, an open plan kitchen, breakfast and family room, and five first-floor bedrooms.


Throughout the inside of the main building fine period features and inglenook fireplaces are combined with nine-foot ceilings and granite worktops.

The timber-framed residence also benefits from being south-facing and looking out across established gardens, meadowland and idyllic the River Colne.

The country home also has two bathrooms, a large, converted barn with a dining and reception room, additional bedrooms and more, and an ancillary building.

Outside, in addition to the vast open surroundings, there is also ample parking, a secluded driveaway, a large garage, and, of course, a private tennis court.

Location-wise the site is positioned off Cook's Hall Road, conveniently near Heathlands Primary School, the Co-op, a GP surgery and The Queens Head pub.


It is also ideally placed for commuting, with the A12 trunk road and Colchester North Station just three miles away.

A spokesman for David Burr estate agents, the firm selling the property, said: “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.

“It has been further enhanced by a contemporary extension in the form of a vaulted, brick built AGA kitchen and breakfast room with 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, versatile outbuilding and well-screened gardens with a total plot size of approximately eight acres.”
