This has to be one of the classiest and coolest houses you could wish to rent in Wivenhoe. Watch out of the change in colour scheme.
A small town famous for its character properties, this is right up there with the best. Located on Anchor Hill, arguably the main square of Wivenhoe, with all points leading to somewhere interesting, whether it's the university, the pubs, restaurants, estuary, shops, or the station.
The house has all the practicality of modern houses, except double glazing, but all the sense of history and age that is fast disappearing.
And despite all that's going on in the world and restrictions of movement, Wivenhoe remains a wonderful place to be, with its continued sense of timeless charm.
You have an entrance hall that doubles as a porch for shoes and coats. The living room has a classical Victorian "Holmes"-style feel to it, bookshelves and wooden flooboards. The kitchen is huge, with wood everywhere. Loads of storage, larder space, and cupboards. Butler sink, gas hob.
The courtyard at the back deceptively gives you access to the ensuite bedroom, which could be perfect for an adult son or daughter still living with the family, an "in law", even a teenager. So many options.
Upstairs takes you to the main bedroom, again with wooden floorboards, the carpeted single second bedroom and the main bathroom.
Wivenhoe high street retains a historic charm because of its buildings, its access to the estuary, the community owned pub, the boutique shops and personal restaurants.
From an employment and commuter point of view, Wivenhoe has the best of all worlds, the University is just one of many employment opportunities in or close to the town, Colchester is minutes away and the intercity London line goes from Wivenhoe station at frequent intervals from early in the morning.
If you want to enjoy one of the most interesting rental properties for years to come, then call to make an appointment to view.
