Polstead Heath is a small and very pretty village set on the Essex/Suffolk borders between the market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh, and the main town of Colchester. It is away from through traffic but has excellent road connections to Colchester and Ipswich, making it ideal for those commuting to the City of London and Liverpool Street. Hadleigh is four miles away providing good shopping, schools and many other facilities, with more available at Sudbury and extensive amenities in Colchester on the A12. Straight Road contains a mixture of larger period and modern properties and is a much favoured setting.


Anndale is an individual new house in the final stages of construction and has been built in the style of an Essex/Suffolk farmhouse using traditional materials and finishes. The front elevation is jetted and there are traditional sash windows with a mellow clay tiled roof. There is a traditional chimney, lined for the installation of a wood burner. Inside the rooms are of generous proportions and are very light thanks to the large windows. A major feature is the stunning open plan kitchen and dining/family room, with two sets of bi-fold doors and a large roof lantern above the dining area. On the first floor are four generous bedrooms with three en suites and a family bathroom and stairs lead up to the second floor where there are two further large rooms, already floored and with windows (ideal for additional bedrooms or a self contained suite). There is a sweeping drive with extensive parking and a large double carport garage with all mains services laid on (including drainage). At the rear is a 132' long sweeping garden and an ancient woodland at the back.
