Anglesea Road, Wivenhoe is in the lower part of Wivenhoe close by to the quayside, waterfront and train station. Property rarely comes up in this area and as such commands an exclusive status giving excellent resale values and a charming position to live in. Wivenhoe offers excellent schooling, good local pubs, shops and amenities whilst being commutable with a travel time of just over the hour to London Liverpool street.

Enclosed by hedging and fencing with boundaries stretching down overlooking open fields and down to the river, currently all grassland with various trees, shrubs and plants, timber outbuildings and wonderful open space which just cant be found anywhere but here.
