'Fabulous' Colchester country home has enormous spa and pool complex hidden in back garden – Essex Live

‘The indoor swimming pool is one of the best I have ever seen’
Large country homes often have luxuries such as tennis courts or swimming pools, but this home just outside Colchester has a resplendent spa tucked away in its garden. Wisconsin is a five-bedroom family home nestled in the wooden countryside of Langham, the other side of the A12 to Essex’s newest city – and the property’s features transports you like you’re on a Mediterranean holiday.

The spa complex consists of a huge pool with a 10’4″ deep end for diving inside a cavernous vaulted room which has exposed wooden beams. The warm lighting from the rafters creates a cosy and relaxing atmosphere, with a gorgeous mural on the end wall depicting a Mediterranean view across the ocean.
To the right of the pool lies a hot tub which overlooks the garden, attached to the main pool so you can enjoy a soak while someone else swims next to you. On the back wall are glass doors which lead through to the steam room and sauna, completing the full spa experience. The bi-fold doors by the hot tub open onto the terrace and garden for warmer months.
Savills property agent Alexander McNab said: “Wisconsin is a fabulous family home. The indoor swimming pool is one of the best I have ever seen, in a wonderful vaulted pool room, with hot tub, steam room and sauna.”
The rest of the home is typical countryside fashion, with gorgeous exposed wooden beams, brickwork and wood panelling. The kitchen has granite work surfaces, an island and integrated appliances including; a Gaggenau oven, hob, steamer and fryer. The vauted sitting room has French windows and a cosy woodburner, with a study nextdoor.
The west side of the home has a drawing room, dining room and open fireplace, with another reception room leading on from the dining room – currently used for games. A conservatory, boot room, utility and two toilets complete the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, with the master suite including a shower room, huge dressing room and Juliet balcony.
