FOULNESS ISLAND Foulness Island is an area of natural beauty and home for plenty of wildlife. It is located close to Southend on Sea and the Island is owned by the Military of Defence who provide 24/7 security 365 days' a year! One of the many benefits of living on Foulness is opportunity to freely visit almost all parts of the island and enjoy the freedom and vast walkways it has to offer.






THE PROPERTY This unique Victorian property is approached via MOD security at the Landwick gate of Foulness Island and is situated a short drive from the eastern end of the island. Foulness is bounded by its sea walls and divided from the mainland by a series of tidal waterways; the River Crouch to the north, the River Roach to the west and the North Sea to the east.

Upon arriving at the Rectory you are welcomed by a traditional outlook that's to be expected from a glorious property of this nature. Once inside the impressive reception hall gives access to all principal rooms including the former vicar's study with fitted bookcases and shuttered windows. The ground floor accommodation includes the dual aspect dining room, family shower room and a drawing room room which includes a period marble fireplace. All the rooms throughout the house have original sash windows and high Victorian ceilings.

To the rear of the house lies a farmhouse kitchen with a wood burner and an adjacent laundry room. A further lobby leads to the Old Bakery which still contains the original copper and bread oven.

On the first floor there is a separate WC, 5/6 generous size bedrooms one with an en-suite bathroom and another which can be used as a nursery. Every room offers extensive views over the lovely surrounding countryside.

Externally, the well kept vast grounds and paddocks are secluded by a range of mature trees and shrubbery. There are various out-buildings including a chicken run with housing for hens, stables, tack room, hay barn/cart lodge with power and light connected.

The whole plot has a feeling of complete seclusion. All the garden areas have extensive trees and shrubs which seem to cloak the house in leaves.

The two post and rail paddocks stretch to about 0.6 acres.

Between the house and paddock is a separate out-building which was the original Sunday School and has now been cleverly converted into a large well appointed dining or garden room.

All in all a rare opportunity to purchase this outstanding period style property situated in this completely unique location.

Viewing is strictly through Hair & Son. Please note all potential purchasers will be requested to sign in at the MOD Estate Office before being granted permission to enter the island.
