A rare opportunity to own this quality Georgian townhouse, serenely poised at the very heart of old Mistley. Overlooking the River Stour Estuary, designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, its close environment combines refreshing waterside or woodland recreation with the luxury of Mistley trains to London, Harwich or Norwich.
The village owes a unique personality to its location as former historic harbour. Grade Two listed, it testifies to the original vision of a Georgian Spa, set in a classically gracious village. The double front, under peg tiled roof, faces Robert Adam’s Swan Basin fountain. The side elevation overlooks its brick-walled garden over river views to the Suffolk shores.
Architectural charm flows throughout airily proportioned spaces. Many high ceilings, and original fireplaces lavished upon every room, historic features sensitively preserved to this date. Inspiring originality afresh, there is exciting potential to combine the serenity of its timeless authenticity with the best of today’s innovation: re-creating a unique home in a magical location.
A convenient separate ANNEXE offers useful accommodation additional to the 4 bedrooms in the main house.
Boats and migrating wildfowl enchant the stroll from Mistley village to Manningtree, the smallest town in England, with street fairs, markets, festivals; as well as the full range of amenities, small beach and boatclub.
