Property description


This is a recently established tree stock nursery. The property consists of a 2/3 bedroom detached house built to a high standard, an 80' x 60' steel framed general purpose building on a plot of approximately 8.6 acres. The property is securely fenced and accessed via an electric security gateway. The growing stock is also available by separate agreement.


The property is located in the hamlet of Beazley End which is in itself approximately 2.5 miles as the crow flies from Gosfield and about 4 miles from Braintree as the crow flies.

There are primary schools close by at Shalford, Wethersfield and Gosfield with secondary schools at Braintree and Halstead. Gosfield private school is about 3 miles away.

  • study / dining room / bedroom 3
  • master bedroom with en-suite

The Building

Erected in 2018 the adjoining barn is a steel framed and steel clad building of approximately 24.6 m x 18.7 m (80'x60') with tall 5m eaves and roller shutter door. There is a hardcore floor which could be readily upgraded with concrete.

The Nursery

The land is laid out to include a range of specialist nursery tree stock. The stock is watered from an overground water tank supplied by a bore hole with electric pump and filtration. The property is fenced with rabbit and deer fencing and there are electric security gates to the highway.

The growing stock can be purchased by separate negotiation. Further details are available from the selling agent.

Town Planning

The local planning authority is Braintree Council. The property has planning consent granted under application: 14/01517/FUL.

The planning consent includes a condition that: "The occupation of the dwelling hereby permitted shall be limited to a person solely or mainly employed in agriculture (as defined by Section 336 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended)) in the locality or a widow or widower of such a person, and to any resident dependants".

The reason quoted for this condition is that, "the site lies in the designated countryside where the adopted Local Plan policy seeks to restrict new residential development to that required to meet the needs of agriculture. Accordingly, the dwelling hereby approved is only justifiable on the basis of the occupancy restriction imposed by this condition".

Prospective purchasers must seek advice from a Town Planning Consultant or Braintree District Council to ensure they understand the implications of the planning conditions and that the property is suitable for their proposed use.


Mains water and electricity are connected. There is oil fired central heating and private cess pitt drainage. There is a bore-hole water supply serving the nursery.
