House for Essex


Julie's House designed by Grayson Perry Julie's House designed by Grayson Perry

The house is close to Wrabness Station and the Essex Way. Travel by train and enjoy the scenic views on the Mayflower Line (Manningtree to Harwich) and alight at Wrabness Station.  Alternatively if travelling by car please do not drive down the narrow unmade road, park in the Station Car Park and enjoy a short walk down Black Boy Lane to the house. The press have reported views from local residents:


‘I love it! It’s a beautiful spot, and it needed something like this.’

 ‘Very interesting but in the wrong place. It has totally ruined the natural scenery.’

‘We are quite privileged to live next door to it. I suspect the number of visitors will be annoying though.’

‘People will come and visit from London and have a very amusing tale to tell at dinner parties.  But they won’t have to look at it day in and day out and wonder if they are victims of a practical joke.’
