Here is south Essex’s most expensive house currently on the market... for just £5m.

A six bedroom home – with its own banquet hall of course – in Shoebury.

The detached property in Mess Road is on sale with Dedman Gray.

Its online listing calls it a “fantastic seafront home” with “beautiful scenes across the Thames Estuary”.

It says: “This home is in a fantastic location, award-winning beaches are within a stone’s throw from the property plus excellent facilities such as Thorpe Bay yacht club, tennis club and bowls club.


“Shoebury and Thorpe Bay with its local shops are close by plus excellent local schools in both state and private sectors. The property also has a separate one bedroom annex.”

Mike Gray, of Dedman Gray, said: “The property was originally two large houses that have been rearranged into one. It’s a unique waterfront accommodation in an area with uninterrupted views across the estuary.


“We have had three viewings over the last several months, all from local residents.

“It does have an original banqueting hall but I wouldn’t want people to think they have to host functions there.”
