Set within 2.3 acres of established grounds, this beautifully finished 4 bedroom detached home with separate annexe accomodation is idyllically located within village of Langham. The property has been greatly improved and offers generous accommodation throughout. The sellers have invested heavily in the 40" heated swimming pool also suitable for diving. Spa complex and full size tennis Court.
LOCATION This very large and hugely impressive family home enjoys an enviable rural location within the sought after village of Langham. Locally, there are miles of public foot and bridle paths along with The Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) & Stour Valley also known as Constable country. Nearby Colchester has all the conveniences of a large town, including direct mainline train links to London and other major cities.
SELLERSINSIGHT "We knew we wanted to live in this area mainly because of the excellent schools but our search for a new home took quite some time," says the owner. "Nothing we saw offered quite what we were looking for, but then we happened upon Wisconsin. It enjoys this fantastic location on the fringes of Colchester, but it's surrounded by virtually nothing but rolling farmland so feels as if it's miles from anywhere. It's a place that offers that perfect balance between seclusion and convenience and we've absolutely loved it here."
"The house was completed shortly before we bought it in 1999 we've enhanced it further and transformed it into something really quite exceptional. We have a fabulous swimming pool complex that incorporates a huge pool, a Jacuzzi as well as a steam room and sauna. Outside the grounds are beautifully landscaped and there is a tennis court. At the moment we're actually in the early stages of having a granny annex built. The whole property is absolutely wonderful and very luxurious and it has given us all a fabulous quality of life."
"The house has this very open feel and is light and bright throughout, and each of the principle rooms looks out across the garden and the fields beyond so the views are just lovely," continues the owner. "And the grounds are another standout feature of the property that since being landscaped have matured beautifully. We have formal gardens, an orchard, a stunning Italian pond and there are seating areas here and there so you can follow the sun all day long.
Beyond the garden we also have a large paddock so, considering our wonderfully rural location this could be a fabulous place to keep horses. The whole place is just gorgeous but really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated."
FAVOURITEROOM "The pool is my favourite part of the house," says the owner. "It's lovely for exercising and a bit of pampering and it's also great for socialising. We can relax on the loungers, have a drink, have a swim it's fabulous."
"As I said before, what we love most is the fact that our immediate surroundings are so peaceful and picturesque and yet everything we could possibly want or need is just a stone's throw away," says the owner.
WHATTHEYWILLMISSTHEMOST "The only reason we've decided to move is we just don't need all of this space anymore, but we'll be sad to go," says the owner. "I'll miss the light and airy feel of the house, the swimming pool and this glorious setting, but most of all I'll miss my garden. It's like my own private park and every morning I sit out there by the pond and think how lucky I am to live in a beautiful place like this. It's been wonderful."
AGENTSNOTE The owners have informed us there is currently planning permission in progress to add a granny annexe to the rear of the dwelling.
