A plot of land on a vineyard just outside of Colchester is on the market for £2.4 million with permission to build a new property there.
Planning permission has been given for a 9,000-square-foot home to be built on the Dedham Vale Vineyard Estate.
Overall, Dedham Vale Vineyard has 38.49 acres of woodlands, lakes, meadows and productive vines.
The vineyard is currently the setting for two beautifully presented single-storey residences overlooking a picturesque lake.

On its Zoopla profile, it says the site comprises a range of existing buildings including barns and offices, as well as the former winery.
Subject to the necessary consents, these outbuildings also offer further potential for development.
As mentioned previously there are two single-storey residences on the land, one of which is Willow Lake Cottage.
This has holiday-let use and comprises two bedrooms, two shower rooms and an open-plan kitchen/ family room overlooking the lake.
The other residence is Winemakers Cottage and comprises a bedroom, shower room and open plan kitchen/sitting room, again with outdoor balcony.
Both offer light and spacious accommodations throughout with "spectacular views" from all aspects.
The profile adds: "Whilst providing future income potential, they also allow for living on site should a buyer wish to complete the approved planning."
In terms of planning permission for a new property, it allows for a large double-height principal reception room and entrance hall.
Additionally, it is planned to have a large kitchen allowing for an open floorplan, each sited with westward views across lawns to the lake.
There is approval for a large workshop and 4-bay garage if desired.
The profile continues: "The site for the new house is on the opposite side of the Lake to the current cottages and vines, giving it separation and privacy should you wish to continue a business on the site."
