Hockley home with swimming pool, wine cellar and movie theatre goes on the market for a whopping £4million

Echo: Fancy this pad? Only if you've got £4million going spare! Fancy this pad? Only if you've got £4million going spare!

IT LOOKS like a vision out of F Scott Fitzgerald’s book the Great Gatsby and this stunning mansion could be yours for a cool £4million.

High Oak, a magnificent, five bedroom, 14,000sq ft property in Hockley tops the rich list of high-end homes in south Essex, as listed on the Rightmove website.

For the hefty price tag, you get 1.4 acres of land, a soundproof cinema room, a wine cellar and a gym.

Echo: Infinity - the swimming pool is on the first floor balcony

Echo: Spacious - the lounge 

The property is approached via a private driveway off High Road and as you get closer, it emerges on the horizon in all its breathtaking splendour.

On entering the house there is a jaw-dropping reception hall with twin staircases which look fit for a Hollywood starlet to descend.

On the ground floor, there are eight reception rooms, a kitchen designed by Mark Wilkinson, a utility room and a basement wine cellar.

On the first floor, there are five bedroom suites, all with dressing and ensuite facilities, off a galleried landing with a vaulted and domed ceiling.

From the landing there is access to a first-floor terrace with an infinity pool.

Outside there are landscaped gardens front and rear, and farreaching countryside views.

There is parking with the detached garage block for several vehicles.

Robert Burns, from Tillett Burns & Hughes Chartered Surveyors in Basildon, said: “These types of multi-million pound houses are really within a property sector of their own.

“They are not bought by people who need to get a mortgage and buyers would travel UKwide for these unique properties not just within counties.

“However, there are individual roads, like Norsey Road in Billericay, where multi-million pound properties do bolster the prices of surrounding properties.

Echo: Ready to fill up - the mansion's extensive wine cellar

Echo: Relaxing - the house even comes with its own movie theatre

“You may also find that houses in the surrounding area of an individual mansion may also go up in value.”

High Oak is on the market with Davis Estates. Visit www.davisestates.co.uk

Echo: Swanky - the modern kitchen

Echo: Room with a view - High Oak is close to Hockley Woods
