Former Officers Mess
Built around 1850, and featured on Channel 4 Homes By The Sea, this property was the former Officers Mess in the historic Shoebury Garrison.
Occupying a prime position on the Thames Estuary the property is unique and significant in size with circa 12,000 sq ft of living space. It benefits from huge gardens overlooking the river and the internal spaces have been totally modernised.
The property comprises 2 kitchens, huge hall and snooker room, very large living areas with super high ceilings (6M + high), a Cinema, Gym, laundry area, study, and numerous large bedrooms. It also has a ballroom which has been converted into a lounge and dining room.
This property was occupied during World War 2 not just by high-ranking British Army Officers but also was home for a while to American GIs who danced in the ballroom. The property also has a Courtyard and Annex building which will shortly be converted to a swimming pool and spa area. Facing south the property benefits from lots of light.
It has ample parking for many large vehicles and is situated close to London and on the M25 corridor
