A lavish Tudor mansion with a huge estate near Colchester is on the market for £6,250,000. 

The Westwood Park property in Little Horkesley is a nine-bedroom mansion located on 52.32 acres of land. 

The historic building also features a three-bedroom East House, a three-bedroom Garden Cottage, as well as an East Apartment and Orchard Cottage with two bedrooms each. 

Property agent Barclay Macfarlane, who is representing the property at Savills, said: “A stunning example of a Tudor Manor house in a stunning setting with fabulous formal gardens.” 

Echo: Pool - What would a house as big as this be without a swimming pool in the garden

The Grade II listed Tudor manor house was developed by the Lynne family and underwent several changes over the decades. 

Originally built in 1692, the home was rebuilt in the Elizabethan style in 1908 with a range of outbuildings, including potting and tool sheds, greenhouses, stables and a summerhouse. 

In 1906, resident Captain Hill extended the house and refashioned it in the Jacobethan style. 

Inside the main home, an exceptionally large, panelled hallway and entertaining area with a historic oak staircase and galleried landing welcomes guests before leading the way to the bedrooms. 

The hallway opens directly into the principal reception rooms, which are mostly decorated with moulded ceilings, Jacobean-style oak panelling and carved oak fireplaces. 

Echo: Bedroom - The primary bedroom offers large windows and a lot of space

The main house and East Apartment are equipped with handmade Humphrey Munson kitchens, including modern features in the traditional home. 

Thermal solar panels on the roof add to the modern features of the house. 

Surrounding the house are mature formal gardens, grounds and pastures, which were redesigned over 100 years ago and comprise a range of specimen trees. 

The garden is walled, with rose and herbaceous borders, wrought ironwork, rose and yew walks, as we as apple and pear arcades and ponds. 

Echo: Modern - Modern kitchen appliances have been added

Planning permission for a log cabin has been granted and can be constructed in the hedged area behind the barn, as the reinforced concrete slab has already been completed. 

The gate, which is reputedly from Dick Whittington’s London home leads into the wilderness garden running alongside an 18th-century ornamental lily pond with koi carp, giving the home enough privacy away from the road. 

The home is available at a freehold with the guide price starting at £6,250,000.
