4 bed house, Alresford, Colchester.

As the old song Happy Talk goes,

“You got to have a dream,
If you don't have a dream,
How you gonna have a dream come true?”

(From the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific)

With that in mind I’ve found three perfect Essex residences that can accommodate your current boat, or the boat that you’re planning to buy.

4 bedroom detached house, Colchester.

This four bedroom home (pictured) offers beautiful views across the River Wandle and water meadows and is set in its own private grounds of about 4 acres. The property was built in the 1930’s and is a Cedar styled Colt house which is a timber frame construction.

The gardens lead into a field of wild grass and there is a pathway through the field that leads down to The Creek frontage and your own private jetty.

Smugglers Barn, Chelmsford.

This cottage dates from the early 19th century and backs onto to the banks of the Chelmer and Blackwater navigation. The private, tranquil setting has mooring and fishing rights. The gardens side directly onto the canal where there is a landing jetty, three timber sheds and a private terrace seating area.

The Esplanade, Hullbridge.

This detached chalet overlooks the River Crouch and has three bedrooms, a study and its own river mooring with separate jetty. The loft room has an en suite. The back garden is 34ft x 50ft with a decked patio area and a lawn.

Check out the pictures and decide which dream home would suit your boat!
