Bright, Plant-Filled 4 Bedroom Near the Coast

This spacious 4-bedroom house is located in the small village of Wivenhoe--a seaside town near Colchester in the East of England. It is a 1-hour train ride from both London and Norwich, and is located a short 7-min walk from the local pubs, co-op, train station, and estuary. It is a 10 min bus ride (or a 2-mile walk/bike) to the University of Essex. Wivenhoe is a small, quite village with scenic walks and easy access (via bus) to local beaches--an ideal place to relax and get some writing done.

The house is comprised of 4 bedrooms (2 beds: 1 Queen, 1 Full), 2 bathrooms, and a large kitchen/dining room, conservatory, garden, garage, and living room. It is divided over 2-floors. It could sleep up to 4 depending, but the two smaller bedrooms are outfitted as offices. It comes pre-furnished and there is a diverse array of plants. It includes all gas kitchen & heating; on-site washer/dryer; fridge; oven; microwave; dishwasher; shower & tub. NO A/C! Wood floors throughout. No pets. Utilities (inclusive of internet) included. Owner's bike is available for use, depending.

Given the current coronavirus situation, the owners personal belongings are still in the house--the lowered price reflects this potential inconvenience & prospective sub-letters are encouraged to discuss it with me.

About Me
I am an originally American academic now working in the UK as a professor of psychosocial studies at the University of Essex. There, I also run the BA program in Childhood Studies. Prior to this, I taught at Duke University where I also earned my PhD. As an American, I split my time between my home in the Durham, NC and this house in Wivenhoe. I am typically gone in the summer months and over Winter break. I have travelled widely, but English is my preferred language (my French and Spanish are quite shoddy).
