St John’s Green, Colchester – gorgeous and gone!
Abbey House is believed to have been built around 1830 and is within the walled precinct of St John’s Abbey. In 1860, the property was bought by the war department to form part of the barracks for Colchester Garrison and the house was home to the commanding officer of the Royal Engineers. It remained part of the Garrison until 2000 when the army left and moved further south of the town.
Abbey House has now been restored to its former glory by the award winning team at Lexden Restorations and today it is an imposing and impeccably finished five bedroom home. As well as creating the five bedroom townhouse from the main part of Abbey House, the restoration includes converting the rear servant’s wing into a separate three bedroom property which has also been sold. Work is now underway on developing five other elegant townhouses along Flagstaff Road.
