There is sporadic development along the main road, a small residential estate at the junction of Bromley Road and substantial light industrial and distribution commercial premises beyond including the Car Auction Centre.
There are good road links for the property to the A133 linking between Frinton/Clacton/Walton and Colchester and beyond linking to the A12 to Ipswich and Chelmsford. The A120 links to Braintree/Stansted Airport. Commuters can access Alresford, Wivenhoe, Great Bentley (75 minutes) or Colchester North Station (55 minutes) with a commuter train link to London's Liverpool Street in a journey of approximately one and a quarter hours.
The main farm house is purpose built circa 1880. The walls are masonry with outer pebbledash render under a pitched timber framed roof covered with natural slate. It is generally in poor condition and a thorough refurbishment and overhaul is required. This to include all Kitchen, Bathroom fittings, wiring, plumbing, heating etc. This was originally a poultry rearing farm but has been redundant since 1986.
