The Former Sergeant's Mess

The Former Sergeant's Mess (LEC8), Cavalry Road, Colchester CO2 7GH.

Ideally located close to Colchester Town Centre (just a ten minute walk) and the Abbey Fields Public Open Space, this former Garrison Mess Building has been completely restored and converted into just five, large two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments. There are two apartments on the first floor and three on the ground floor, with one of those on the ground floor benefiting from having its own independent access and nothing above it.
