"Excellent base to explore Essex"

Modern semi detached in a very quiet neighbourhood. Extremely well equipped and comfortable - wifi a bonus. Large supermarket within a mile caters for all tastes. Well positioned to explore the neighbouring countryside. For those not wishing to drive, bus stop less than 5 minutes walk with frequent services to historic Colchester.

Graziosa villetta a schiera alla periferia di Colchester. Accogliente, pulita e dotata di ogni comfort. Due minuti a piedi dalla fermata dell'autobus che porta in centro. Soluzione perfetta per le famiglie con bambini. Ampio giardino curato in ogni dettaglio. Ci siamo sentiti come a casa nostra. Insomma: soluzione favolosa!
